Great cruise overall! This was my first cruise with the Princess Line. At the airport, we were met by a Princess Representative, walked to the baggage area, then dragged our own bags out to the curb. Not nice if you are traveling with an older person like I was. Embarkation however, was smooth and easy and the luggage was in the cabin quickly.
There are no trays at the Horizon Court and it is a little awkward to get to your table in one piece. I also noticed that there were few waiters to help you with your tray and refill the coffee, tea, etc. To be fair, the ship was quite full. I also got the impression that many of the wait staff was new to cruising or to the ship.
The Wheelhouse Bar bands are great! Chip Romero (the Magician) was incredibly good---how does he do that! Chip has a ton of talent. Catch his shows- they are a must see! Sarge (the Comedian) was so funny and I laughed so hard I could hardly breathe! Buy his CD --it will cheer you when you get home!
Great itinerary-San Juan, St. Thomas-- been there and enjoyed that. I loved Grenada, and St. Kitts. Spices and beautiful scenery! Isla Margarita was very pretty with little beaches off the pier. The town was about 45 minutes away by taxi and we were pulling out at 1:00Pm so I walked around the beaches with a friend and had a very nice time. Aruba was colorful and fun.
The Dawn Princess had a nice crew and very friendly efficient staff. Yes I would go again with Princess! As soon as possible!
