Itinerary: Southern Caribbean

My wife and I booked this cruise for our honeymoon and I must say that we were EXTREMELY disappointed with Princess. This was our first cruise with Princess after previously sailing with Royal Caribbean and Carnival. To begin, the embarkation process was slow and very disorganized. Once we were on board our luggage was delivered quickly and our stateroom was very nice (we had a mini suite on deck 9). The shore excursions were priced within reason however we left at least 20 minutes late every day usually to wait for one or two individuals who don't know what a wake up call is. The food was OK at best at dinner (we had the personal choice dining option) but the buffet food was downright bad. It seemed to usually be some sort of mishmash of what was served for dinner the previous night. Most of the waitstaff in the dining rooms were rude. The drink waiters in the Horizon court (buffet) were impossible to find and I usually had to approach one of them to place an order. We will not be cruising with Princess again. Save your money and go with Royal Caribbean, you will not be disappointed.
