It's been years since I last cruised, but I do remember having a lot more fun in the past.  The wait staff was superb, our cabin steward was invisible but did an excellent job, the entertainment was what one would expect (meh), and the cruise director's staff was mixed: some looked and acted engaged, others seemed to be, or want to be, elsewhere.  Even though it was after winter break, there were a significant number of families with kids and I felt the activities were all geared to them. We traveled with two other couples who felt the same way.

Cabin / Stateroom
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarkation was tedious due to travelers from another country who were not prepared with their paperwork. The agent did not call for assistance and we waited at least 30 minutes to be checked in.
Ship Quality
I was surprised to see some areas in need of serious repair given that the ship is less than a year old.
Destinations and Excursions
While pleased with our destinations, the lines at the buffet at Princess Cay encouraged us to return to the ship for lunch.
Onboard Activities
Lots of offerings, not many that were appealing to our age group, 55+.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining


If you're traveling with a small group, as we did, it's wise to make arrangements for dining preferences in advance. We opted for anytime dining, but the maitre d' accommodated our request for a specific table at a specific time every night.
