Go to cruisecritic.com, click on the Princess section in the message boards, and you will find many reviews of the TP. We are booked on the 7/12/03 cruise and our tickets just arrived and we are getting very excied.

Your gonna love it! It's a great ship, excellent service and pretty good food. We took the cook island itinerary last month and had an absolute ball! We were fortunate with great weather and we took many of the Princess excursions (costly but worth it.) I'd suggest taking a pre-cruise for a day or so to get adjusted. We loved it all so much we're going back next year in May to do it all over again!

Happy cruizin'

I have been planning to post a review after my cruise last April, and unfortunately have not had time to write it as yet. In this context, I can offer a few quick comments.

>> 1. I had a great time, and hesitate to book another cruise on this ship only because it has fallen into the hands of a company (Carnival Corporation) with whose track record of safety, security, sanitation, and passenger satisfaction I am not exactly impressed (at leat favorably).

>> 2. The islands of the South Pacific are great!

>> 3. The ship offers most amenities of larger ships -- alternative dining, decent shows, great cuisine, decent cabins, a full service spa and fitness center, etc. -- but in a smaller package. OTOH, some options are a bit more limited -- there's only one show room, for example.

>> 4. Some facilities are not up to the standards of Princess's newer ships, including the show lounge (poor layout and definitely not set up for special effects), the promenades (not teak), and some tackiness in the decor (faux wraught iron on the stairways that's actually painted glass panels, faux china cabinets and bookcases that actually are photographs behind glass panels in the doors of storage cabinets, etc.). Princess apparently is planning some upgrades during the next major yard period, which probably won't happen until the end of next year.

Have a great honeymoon!

SMC, Before we departed for our TP cruise the first two weeks of May, I compiled a Word Document on each port, as well as the ship. If you'd like, send me an e-mail to the above address, and I'll send them to you, as well as the trip report that i posted on Cruise Critic.

Happy Cruising,
