Food and Dining

1 out of 5
The food in the dining rooms are horrible. If you choose from the left side of the menu you are ok. Raw meatballs, raw fish and clams with empty shells are just a few on the bad choices I made. Alfredo's is the go to restaurant to get great food.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Great service and awesome pizzas and pasta and salads.

Entertainment

We rented a cabana and it was well worth it. The staff is superb and the food is fantastic. Very calm and serene. Our favorite spot on the ship!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship itself is perfectly mapped out. You never think that you are with thousands of other passengers.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It had a larger balcony which was nice but the sea bridge is right over you so not much privacy. The cabin itself was much better than just a balcony cabin, you really appreciate the extra room.

Ship tip

I would not upgrade to Club status if you are already Platinum with Princess. We weren't allowed to use the Club dining because our friends didn't get it. The robe was the same we received with the suite anyway. The 2 half bottles of wine were maybe worth $40.00.

Ports of call

Basseterre, St. Kitts

Nice shopping area next to the ship.

Castries, St. Lucia

Great little boutiques and a Rum tasting room. Very picturesque.

St. John's, Antigua

This port is really trying to upgrade itself but isn't quite there yet.

If you are platinum with Princess it's a breeze.
