We travel the world, but are not big cruisers, and have more experience with smaller, more intimate cruise ships, so something this large took some getting use too. The crew and staff were very attentive and polite, the food was adequate and varied, and our snorkeling/scuba trips were good. This is our 4th cruise with Princess, although for our friends who went with us, it was their 40th.

Don't buy the extended soft drink, nor the alcohol 10 day "deals"! purchase when you go ashore, and decant into water bottles---these are never checked. buy a case of pepsi and bring on board.
