Review summary

We cruise quite often, but this is our first Princess cruise. The passengers were older. We had our teenage daughters for spring break. The teen club would not let the 18 year old in even though she is a senior just like the 17 year old. They have a 15 drink limit on the drink package, but wont give you credit if not consumed on other days. They also won't give you pop with the drink passages unless it comes out of the fountain. They have very limited fountain choices. The ship was clean but dated.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The buffet choices are good, but small. The steak restaurant was wonderful. I would not recommend Share- overpriced. We had the drink package and you are limited to 15 per day. But when in port, they don't give you credit for the drinks you have not consumed those days. They also will only give you pop from the fountain and will charge for cans of pop that are not available in the fountain. Very petty as the drink package is close to 500$

Children's Programs

I brought two seniors in high school. One is 17 and one 18. The would not let the 18 year old in the program. The teen club should be based on grade not age.

Service and Staff
