We skipped the boarding picture as we knew our beauty would break the camera….The photographer told us that was the first time he heard that one. LOL.
Once we got on the gangway it was a little slower, but not bad at all.

You may notice a little sticker on there. I had preordered the unlimited soda and more package. Unlike Disney, you have to pay for soft drinks on Princess (and pretty much most other lines). I prebought the package so I wouldn’t have to worry about when I wanted something to drink and how much it was adding up. This also included smoothies, mocktails and shakes. For me, this was well worth it and it paid for itself many times over. I am not a big drinker anyways and if I do drink it’s one here or there and not my idea of fun for a vacation. That’s just me. Mom on the other hand, likes wine and will have several glasses a day.
Boarding a Princess ship is pretty boring compared to Disney as well…but I knew that going in. Disney will announce each and every family and all the CM’s clap. Boarding Princess….you just walk on and they tell you your room is ready and you can grab lunch. Not many people around and surely not the same fanfare.
The nice thing about Princess…your rooms are ready when you board, so you can go drop off your carry ons and not have to lug them around till 1:30.
We moved into the Atrium/Piazza and took a look around.
