On the ship

This was our first cruise on the Princess line.  I don’t think we’ll ever take a Carnival cruise again. The Princess ship was more subtly decorated (meaning not garish) and except for one night, dinner was free of tacky announcements and singing.

Ship tour

One of the first things on the schedule was a tour to acquaint yourself with the ship.  We often don’t get organized enough to do something like that, but I’m really glad I did and got to get acclimated to where everything was.


The best part of a cruise is the people–but I didn’t take that many pictures at dinner this time.

Our cabin

The cabin was really nice–especially the closet space.

Looking ahead

caribbean-princess17One cruise is never enough, so we’re already thinking about the next one and have already put a deposit on our next one.  My initial thought was a Holy Land cruise, but as I write this (April 2013) Egypt and Israel are not the safest places for Americans, so we’re now thinking about the British Isles.
