Onboard Activities

We received complimentary dinner at Sabatini. It was nice and the food good but to be honest we missed our normal dinner at Allegri with our waiter Nino :). We enjoyed the experience but nothing compared to the service Nino provided

Entertainment

Overall the gym was ok. That said, my husband and I decides to try a consultation with Alex who used a machine to explain to us our health. Although he had a lot of knowledge on eating right etc. His approach and way of speaking to me (who needs to LOSE weight) was horrendous. I ended up walking out of the room basically being told I was about to die. I was broken apart and torn down to the point that I cried for 3 hours. I am not ignoring the fact that i do need to LOSE weight but we came into that room and told him that I had ALREADY lost 20 lbs and fully understand I need like 30 more to go. He shattered me. I didn't want to do anything (especially go swimming or go to the gym) after his "help". Although he knew his product Alex had HORRIBLE bed side manner. Instead of acknowledging that I am on the right track....that he heard me...tgat he is here to help. He torn me apart and said TWICE that I am about to die. I left feeling 200% hopeless. Thank GOD my husband was there with me after 3 HOURS of me crying my eyes out in the room he was able to pull me out and we went to formal dinner. I may not be in my prime shape but I KNOW there are people worse off on that ship. Some travel alone. I can not IMAGINE how they would have felt thinking that they were coming for help but left torn apart and hopeless. After talking to the spa manager we received our money back for that service but nothing else. U think more should have been done. To this day I keep having to fight his words. That I will die. Princess should have done SOMETHING else. He is NOT a doctor and he was 100%out of line and truly messed up my experience on that ship. I avoided the area where he was and would take other routes when we saw him. THAT is NOT ok. Also, went to an OFFICIAL doctor today and although (as I had ALREADY stated) losing a few pounds would be good...i am NOT about to die!!!

The port was great but our excursion experience was terrible. It was a very much raining and storming all day type of day. However, our snorkeling did NOT get cancelled even though almost every person questioned this!! The swells were horrible and I was scared on the catamaran The rain made the experience so cold and uncomfortable. We all literally were miserable from the moment we met the guide to the end when we got off. The MOST frustrating part is that it was clearly a horrible day but I had wanted to see sea turtle since booking this cruise. They did NOT tell us that we were not going there because of bad weather until we got to another location which was pretty lame. The ONLY reason we did this particular snorkeling was for the turtles. The weather was terrible from the start! They should have given us all the information and the option to drop the tour. Miserable experience!

Loved this port. Although our original excursion was cancelled we were easily allowed to change to the bus tour that took us on the French and Dutch side . Our guide was AMAZING. He was so knowledgeable and such a great personality. Our favorite port!
