Review Summary

Everyone on-board s charged for water, soda, juice -- anything you might want to drink.  The ship turned off ESPN in the rooms during the College Playoff games, but showed them in the bar.  The same thing with the Rose Bowl, they turned off ESPN during the game, but played it only in the bar.  I had heard Princess Cruises were known as the "Nickel & Dime" cruise, now I know that they are indeed a Nickel & Dime cruise line.
