Review Summary

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 Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
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.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Enjoyed the pop choir.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Most of the entertainment was great. We really enjoyed the comedian, Alan Kotz (sp?)

Service and Staff

See my earlier comment.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
There were signs of frayed carpeting here and there. We missed the actual bars of soap.

Ship Tip

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

Ports Of Call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida Did not visit port

We found great little places to eat.

Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island) Did not visit port

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.
