Second cruise in lifetime (both with Princess). Enjoyed the cruise but would recommend East Caribbean over West Caribbean.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Liquor package did not seem consistent; Beverage package did not include bottled water. One evening a table next to us stated it did not receive the same offerings as they had overheard the server telling my table. Same server on both tables. On separate evening, tables around ours were served 2 lobster tails at the initial plate, our table received only one lobster tail apiece, but 2nd lobster tail delivered upon request. Inconsistent service. 4 of 5 days was able to ask waiter to fill the complimentary cup for orange juice. 1 day a server stated it was a health hazard. Hostess team was gracious at all times during seating.

Onboard Activities

Hot tub

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Trivia (music, movies), Rock Opera, Cooking demo/walk through Galley, Voice of the Ocean, Casino and Bingo. Bingo snowball pot collided with Voice of Ocean; surprised Voice of Ocean was held so early (3PM); last year's West Caribbean Cruise (Royal Princess), I believe the Voice of Ocean was later in the evening.

Nothing really pleasant to see. Ruins were interesting; the climb on 2 of the structures was fairly easy. Lunch was okay.

Cooking class was AWESOME!!! Larger port to shop; would have been nice to have a bit more time at the ocean (~45 minutes after completion of Cooking class)
