Review SummaryWe sailed with four friends from Church on our third group outing. The shore excursions were always terrific, exceeding the descriptions in our pre-cruise package. Photographer Ronnie Carrington provided tips and viewing angles on Barbados. A week prior to driving from New York to Ft. Lauderdale my wife developed ocular shingles....a painful nerve disorder on the left side of her head in the hairline. Our local HMO provided the correct diagnosis and medicines. Our Opthalmologist approved our journey and gave us his business card in case the ships doctor needed to discuss the case. We got to know the Doctor on board the Sun Princess and staff in three visits. Medicine was procured in Curacao, and recommendation for follow-up on shore in Florida provided continuous after-care.
Ports Of Call
Pros: The mature atmosphere respecting our needs for a restful vacation away from artificial onboard games and contests. The food and decor and service was far above average! We were impressed that beverages were not pushed by the staff everywhere.
Cons: Rushing from a wonderful early-seating dinner to get a 'good seat' or seat our small group of six together was seldom fun. We saw a fight break out over folks saving seats. Wish there was another method.
