Princess Eastern Caribbean Cruise

Sail Date: January 03, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

For the most part, we enjoyed it.  However, it seemed the previous Princess cruise we were on the cabin stewards and waiters were much more responsive and conscientious.  No big problems -- but we could tell a difference.

Ship Quality
There were signs of frayed carpeting here and there. We missed the actual bars of soap.
Food and Dining
For the most part, it was very good. It's such a shame one has to pay more to get the quality and assortment that used to be provided without extra cost.
Service and Staff
See my earlier comment.
Most of the entertainment was great. We really enjoyed the comedian, Alan Kotz (sp?)
Onboard Activities
Enjoyed the pop choir.
Destinations and Excursions
Did not really care the the Princess tour we had in St. Maartins.
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida We found great little places to eat.
Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island) Didn't take a tour -- but relaxed on the beach and had some lunch -- which was mediocre.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
We were not impressed with our tour. One of the tour guides was in training and she was more of a distraction than an asset.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Took a local tour -- our tour guide was very well informed and funny. I would do this again.
Grand Turk Island
Took a local tour -- tour guide was okay -- but not great.


Angela, the pop choir director and her husband Dave who is also a cruise employee are a hoot!!!
