Thanks, Norm! This will be our first Princess cruise, and only our third cruise (first two on Celebrity's Galaxy--so. Caribbean, and Mercury--Alaska). Have you ever taken a tour of the ship's bridge? How is this arranged? I've read that it's worth bringing along a small fan to use while watching the ship go through the Canal from your balcony. Worth lugging one along? We plan to take the photo tour on Barbados--any comments on that? All cruise tips appreciated!
