Great Cruise! 

Hey, third entry this year! I'm off to a decent start. It will probably be another week before I get our cruise pictures online, but here are some thoughts on the experience.

Overall we had a great time and I'd give Princess a 4.5 star rating (out of 5) for this cruise. The itinterary was just plain awesome. It will be obvious from our pics which islands we were most excited about - the ones we hadn't been to. Actually, the visibility in the Virgin Islands was no good for snorkeling this time, so it forced a much different experience on us, even though we had been to those islands before. The only reason I wouldn't give the trip a 5 star rating is because we had such a blast on our Holland America trip. The crew just did all of the little things that gave them an edge - from chocolates on the pillows to towel animals to absolutely fantastic dining stewards. The staff on Princess was great too, very professional and even a touch of fun - but just not as fun as our HAL staff.

Much more to come when the pics and videos are up, but just to tease you a little, you'll get to see video of a live lobster on the ocean floor, a sea turtle, an octopus, and even a flounder - oh wait, that was just me after the rum punch snuck up on me. :-)
