Embarkation... was a bit crazy...we got there about 11:30 and alot of the reps were missing to check people in and the lines for each deck kind of got mingled together and caused some confusion but once all the reps got in the right spaces the lines went pretty quick.
The boat was absolutely beautiful. This was our first princess cruise and we were pleasantly surprised on all the details. There were staff directing to the rooms, which was a nice touch.
PC Dining...We decided to try this because we enjoy eating alone (table for 2) and since we like to eat late (8:30 or 9) we didn't think we'd run into any problems. We made reservations for 8:30 as soon as we boarded and every night was very chaotic. The problem wasn't that there weren't enough tables, there were plenty empty ones, the problem was the MD taking the reservations. There was no clear line for those with reservations and those with none and most of the time it turned into one big huddle, seeing who can shout their name out first to get a table. The first formal night I really thought there was going to be a brawl. People were getting downright nasty. The second formal night we went to the Carib Cafe so we didn't have to deal with the lines and it was fantastic. A ton of seafood and we were in heaven. All in all we never had to wait for a table but it was very hectic and i would probably opt for Traditional seating next time.
We also went to Sabatini's one night and it was one of the best meails we every had. The place is awesome.
We don't do breakfast so I can't comment on that but the lunch buffet was very good and the pizza was the best pizza I ever had on a cruise line. We never encountered any lines.
We had an inside cabin and it was a great layout. We normal book balcony's but since it was our 3rd cruise in 10 months we tried to save a little. It was plenty big for the two of us and the stewart was great. He took very good care of us.
The entertainment was very good as well. We loved that they had multiple options and we went to Club Fision almost every night to see one of the shows. The last night we went to see Princess Idol and it was great. I didn't think the CD was anything special and hardly saw him around the ship at all. His deputy directors though were awesome and were all over the place.
Disembarkation...totally smooth. We were off the boat by 8:15. No problems.
All in all it was a great cruise and we can't wait to go back. Let me know if anyone has any questions. Thanks!!!
