March 2015 - 20 Night Caribbean Explorer (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Royal Princess
This was my third cruise and first cruise with Princess. First off, I had some reservations about going on such a large ship (3,500 passengers), but they did a very good job at handling such a large group. It did take away from the Bahama experience a little with the crowds and lining up for the return tender boat. The on board experience was mostly positive, and there was plenty of room to get away from crowds if you wanted. I enjoyed the balcony, and we usually had a great view of each port. They drink prices were not outrageous, and they had 2 happy hour 2 for ones each day. The entertainment was excellent. The food service was excellent too. The food itself was mostly very good, but not 100% of the time. The special raw bar was very good and worth paying extra for. The ports were a wonderful mix of islands. Overall, this cruise is worth the cost and I would like to do an Alaskan cruise with Princess next.
