Top things I enjoyed: 1 Shows were great 2 Key West fun to tour on our own 3 Grand Cayman 5 hr excursion with Capt Marvin was fantastic Top things that surprised me: 1. No formal night 2. No smoking at casino 3. embarkation took 5 minutes 4, there are 3 hot tubs, each take 6 persons. I always found space but at night 2 are closed at 10pm as is the pool so little kids took over 5. For a small ship, it never felt crowded. I always found a chair by the pool and the only line was for 10:30 snacks at windjammer. 6. We ate dinner at 530 so we can enjoy the show and activities. By 9:30 we would be famished but nothing open until 10:30 where jammer served leftover lunch stuff and long hungry lines. No pizza or fries for the poor kids. Started hording muffins from breakfast. 7. Ice cream only open for lunch. Only water and coffee available unless jammer is open then flavored water available inside. Top things I hated: 1. Kids kids kids everywhere. They took over every event even those labeled adults only. Little kids not teens at sexiest man contest, karaoke, disco night, eighties night, every line dance and even snorkeling in the hot tubs. At one point we were watching batman at the pool while little ones danced the night away at the club. No exaggeration so be ready. Their cruise director takes them, they even tried to start a conga line with kids at the pool party. What adult wants to hold on to a 6 year old and dance. 2. Guest services treats gold members as poor relations and really try to discourage you from returning. If you are not doing a rci shore excursion, they do not give you any info as to what else is available if you want to explore on your own. The only thing worse then being a gold member is not doing a rci shore excursion. 3. There is a smell, it has to do with the fuel and comes up through the carpet. Shower tiles were black. I will not be returning. Read Less

We took this short trip in order for us to up-grade our status from Ruby to Platinum - we've booked a 25 day that includes 11 country's cruise, we thought the Platinum would come in handy. Haven'n previously been to Grand Cayman and enjoyed it. So we booked an inside cabin R 240 cause the $ were very reasonable and not only did we enjoyed it but also found it to be great accommodations. Everything was went great, even including our stop at the wine table. Lines were short and we walked on board in less than 30 minutes. We experienced good food and service at main dining as well as the buffet. The dining experience in Crown Grill was excellent. Really enjoyed the movies under the stars. Departure time was less than 30 minutes UNFORTUNATELY..... ..............Now to the rest of the story. The night prior to departure I went to bed wearing my hearing aids so I removed them by putting them on the lamp stand next to the bed ---- and I walked off the ship leaving them. In short a $ 900.00 reasonable up-grade cruise turned into an expensive $ 6000.00 one. Of course I have contacted Princess Lost & Found and filled a report so far nothing,but they tell me that the chances of my seeing them again are about million to one. Expensive lesson learned just thought I'd pass it on as a FYI and don't do what I did - make sure you check your state room before leaving ship. Read Less
