The inside cabins aboard MV Sea Princess and her three sisters are somewhat smaller than aboard other Princess vessels, but they certainly are adequate in all respects. The heads are compact and efficient, but they have enoufh room for all functions and the shower stalls have plenty of room (I have seen smaller shower stalls at guest houses ashore). The vanity smartly doubles as a desk, and there's also a cabinet with a safe, a television, and a refrigerator and adequate closet and shelf space. The lower beds will make up as either a queen or two twins. Overall, it's a very functional arrangement.
As to the ports of call:
>> Princess throws a great beach party on Princess Cays. You don't have to spend money to have a good time.
>> I highly recommend an excursion in Ocho Rios, as the ubiquitous taxi drivers are rather agressive in soliciting your business. The tour titled "Prospect Plantation and Dunn's River Falls" is a nice combination, as you get to see some of the rugged Jamaican countryside (towering over 6300 feet above sea level, Jamaica's Blue Ridge is higher than Mount Washington) and tour a plantation that occupies a whole mountain and grows an impressive array of crops in several altitude zones before going to climb the falls. Be sure to bring a pair of Surfwalkers (sold at most sporting goods stores here in the States) from home and a beach towel from the ship and to wear your swmsuit under your street clothes for the climb. A pound of Jamaican Blue Ridge Coffee is a great souvenir.
>> On Grand Cayman, about every tour seems to be a winner. The "Sea and See" tour really is outstanding, Seven Mile Beach (which really is only 5 1/2 miles long) is one of the best in the world, and the visits to Stingray City also get very high marks. The duty-free shopping district by the tender pier offers some of the best shopping in the Caribbean, with real quality merchandise -- and be sure to visit the rum cake stand (http://www.rumcakes.com
) to sample the wares (the coconut rum cake is my favorite).
>> On Cozumel, it's a tough call between an all day excursion, either to Tulum or to Ex Caret, and a shorer tour that takes in a Mexican culture show in San Miguel de Cozumel (one of the best that I have seen anywhere) and the Mayan ruins at San Gervasio. The ruins at San Gervasio are not as extensive as those at Tulum, but they probably are much more significant becuase the island of Cozumel was a holy place in the Mayan religion. If you opt for the visit to Tulum, be sure to take a large bottle of water from the ship and to drink fromit frequently to prevent dehydration.
Have a great cruise!
