Embarkation was slower than usual. At the airport, we learned that there were two Princess ships in port and leaving at the same, so the shuttles were performing double duty from the airport to both ships. Once at the ship, 1/2 the passengers were preferred, so preferred passengers had a wait just as long as first time cruisers. Disembarkation was very fast and streamlined.
The ship, cabins, dining, and staff were great! There was a lot of entertainment... two magicians with widely different shows, three comedians and again widely different, four production shows with the ship's singers and dancers, a Las Vegas singer who performed two different shows, a Mariachi band, two piano players, a duo, house band, show band, 2 DJ's, etc, plus the audience participation shows... The Voice of the Ocean, the Marriage Show, The No Show, etc, at least 3 shows per evening.
The ports were very nice.
