Review summary

Great fun, great weather and good food. We've been to all the ports before but we wanted to try out this ship and while there were a LOT more people (and families due to the Christmas holiday), the facilities and the Princess staff really made for a relaxing vacation. Looking forward to the next cruise!

Great food and food choices! The quality of the food has greatly improved since our last cruise and there was so much more variety on this mega-ship! Staff was so friendly as always!

The nightly musicians were great and had folks dancing! They had a very funny comedian for one of the main shows too.

Children's Programs

Did not travel with children.

Service and Staff

We had a great room steward and the waiters in every dining room were extremely nice, attentive and helpful.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
This was the nicest Princess ship we've been on. Very good design and comfortable. The one drawback is there is no way to walk around the entire ship outside unless you use the jogging track.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We fully enjoyed the extra room and the back deck for lounging and sunning. Our cabin steward, Juan, was outstanding. Patient and attentive and kept our cabin in great shape for us daily!

Ship tip

Purchase the EZ-Checkout option. It made disembarkation and our travel home SO EASY. We're definitely going this route for future cruises!

Excellent diving. Although I didn't dive this trip, I dove in previous Princess cruises and this is a great location for diving.
