This was intended as a special cruise - the ship and service was a let down. we loved the itinerary but Princess - not so good.

Food and Dining

Just bad - We've cruised on Oceana, Carnival, Royal C....and they've all beat the food quality Princess offered....if you wanted to pay an additional $25 per person to eat in a different dining room the food and service was good...which we did twice to avoid the standard seating.

But extremely crowded - hard to enjoy what the island had to offer but it was beautiful.

Just crowded difficult to enjoy in just one day...I'd schedule at least two - three days if possible
