We have been loyal to Princess and never stepped foot on any other cruise line until this year (RCB & NCL). I would have to say I was a little disappointed in trusty Princess when we were on these mega ships that housed Go Kart tracks, laser tag, flowrider, etc. Of course I understand that these ships were recently released and sail tropical itineraries aimed at families however now I just can't help but feel jaded when comparing Princess fares with these other cruise lines that constantly refurbish their ships. The price points are similar (with Princess being slightly higher on some sailings) and even the competitor's no-frills cruise ships are routinely being upgraded and new attractions are added. I think Princess' latest big deal for us were the dry-docks that brought the International Cafe to the fleet but...that's it. What are the areas in which Princess brings value compared to other cruise lines in today's market? It doesn't help that I seemed to save a few bucks booking with other cruise lines this past year.
