What do you love about Princess?

For me, it's the 24 hr Horizon Court ... love the availability to meet up there for a late evening nosh, where Pizza or room service isn't the only choice.

Princess is our favorite cruise line. We enjoy the personal attention from all of the crew! We've always had wonderful Steward's who remembered our names and who, on the first day (being there at 1 PM was a definite plus ), asked what we needed, then those things just happened!

We really don't ask for much. We like the bedspread taken off and stored, a top sheet added to the bed if there's not one, and a full ice bucket 24/7.

We also tell them that we are NOT early morning people and that they might want to leave our cabin until nearly last on their schedule!

We also enjoy "Crooner's" bar (or the Martini Bar on some ships). They seem to have the best bartender's and are quiet, so we don't have to "yell" at each other to have a conversation !

The Room Service menu is very good if you don't want to go to Horizon Court. There are several hot items and for $3.00 you can get a wonderful pizza .

We also like that Princess is owned by Carnival and we get "shareholder" onboard credit.

IMO, Princess is in between Carnival (which we also like) and Cunard (which we'll probably never cruise!).

Talking Sabatini's

Princess is one of our favorite cruise lines. There is a lot we love about it.

But absolutely far and away the BEST thing on Princess is Sabatini's! We always set aside about three and a half hours every cruise for dinner there! The attentive waiters, the delightful service, the outstanding menu and the beautiful ambiance make it a wonderful place to dine!

Princess is our favorite cruise line. We love the service, the crew, and the food. Princess offers us the type of fun and freedom, to do as much or as little as you want. The beauty of the ships are so appealing, you just do not want to leave. For us being on a Princess ship is like being at home. All of the crew member are very attentive, with a smile.

its so hard to pick a favorite because it all adds up to be a wonderful cruise experience, love just the general all over "mood" of Princess, especially when it comes to the service

I've cruised in everything from a tiny cabin on the RCI Song of America to a huge suite on NCL's Sunward. Nothing fits quite as well as a Princess mini-suite. I feel comfortable, relaxed, and pampered on Princess.

A few years back. It's a $3 delivery charge for a whole pizza to your room.

We're very comfortable on Princess. We like the loyalty program, we LOVE Caribe Balconies. We're utter and complete balcony people and spend our sea days out there so some of the normal mainstream cruise line balcony's just wouldn't do. We love the friendlyness of the crew, we love horizon court, the specialty restaurants, aft adults pool, fresh water pools, awesome itineraries. Lots and lots that we love on Princess.

As Trackyput said, the charge for Room Service Pizza has been around for a while. I think they charge $3.00 for it to keep "kids" from ordering pizza and not eating it?

This is a really good pizza, well worth $3.00! We'd pay $15.00 at home for the same... .

We also enjoy the same thing's Trackyput enjoy's!

Pizza, pizza, pizza. Definitely worth the money! Each cruise I have to order at least two, last time, three.

There are too many things to list as favorites. I love the closet space, sliding (instead of banging) glass doors on the balcony, 24 hour room service, anytime dining, easy embark/disembark, wrap-around promenade decks, never feeling crowded, but above all, the friendly service from stewards to captain. If the crew is happy, you're happy.

p.s. Did I mention the pizza?
