Room Type: Inside

We have been cruising for over 30 years. Every year we go on at least one cruise. Believe it or not, we never sailed on Princess. After this cruise we were glad we didn't. We sailed for 10 nights. The quality of the food was very poor. Everything tasted the same. Italian night had no Italian food. We ate a lot of bread during the week. Last year we sailed on the Costa Magica for the first time. The food was outrageous, and they had the same food at the buffet as in the dining room.

Although we purchased a soda card to have unlimited soda daily, we were unable to use it at the private island. This made no sense to us.

We purchased transfers back to the airport. The bus left us off 1/2 mile from the terminal. Save yourself a few dollars and aggravation and take a taxi.

Sorry I couldn't give a better review.

Pros: Friendly Staff

Ship Quality
Service and Staff
St. John's, Antigua
Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island)
Nice island -- however they don't allow you to use your soda card even though it is Princess.
St. George's, Grenada
Fort-De-France, Martinique
Don't waste your time getting off of the ship. Very depressing.
Castries, St. Lucia
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Very sad to say that the traffic in St. Thomas has made the port unappealing. We almost missed the ship.
