Ship was very nicely laid out and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was OK in buffet could have been more choice over the 10 days I was on the ship.but there are other restaurants. The theatre was not big enough for everyone to see the shows despite the two sittings. A good holiday was had though.

We are Platinum Princess passengers set to sail out of Port Everglades on July 27 for 13 nights. Listed in the line up of activities aboard is Laundry. Does that mean Laundry service available or are there coin operated washers and dryers for passenger use? This is important as it determines how much clothing we need to pack.

My husband and I are devoted Princess fans and this cruise has just cemented that opinion. It was our first time on the Caribbean Princess, and the first time on a Medallion Class ship. There were teething problems with the Medallion equipment but we are confident they will get the kinks ironed out shortly. We loved the new places we visited, particularly Honduras, Belize, Grand Turk and Puerto Rico. We are already looking forward to our next cruise later this year on the Sapphire.
