Europe Cruise Wrap-up

Europe Cruise Wrap-Up

Well, Princess Cruise Lines is definitely different from Carnival Cruise Lines.  Jarrad and I were both at a loss for the amount of activities that were available to us.  We realized pretty early that they tend to cater to couples and families.  They had a lot of activities for those 17 and under, and 60 and over, but nothing really for the rest of us.  Ironically, while we were waiting to disembark, we started watching TV and there was an old episode of Love Boat being televised.  Low and behold, the Love Boat was a Princess ship.  Now I get it!

So for us single guys trying to find anything to do other that what a “Movie Under The Stars” with no stars (a problem in the Mediterranean I think), or cheesy acts in the different lounges or theatres, there wasn’t much else to do.

The food in the general buffet was satisfactory.  Every now and then, they would have something really good like garlic shrimp one night.  But the only exotic food we had was when we ate in the formal dining room on our “at sea” days because we were too tired after our tours to change into dress clothes and go through all that. (PS, They had a different flavor of cheese cake every night and none of them were actually cheese cake.  They were more like the Jello brand than New York style.  We also had a running contest to see who could come closest to guessing what the scrambles eggs where actually made of.)  But I guess you get what you pay for.

The only other real complaint I have, I don’t know whether it is the ship, the captain, or the sea itself, but for the most part, that was a very bumpy ride the entire cruise with minor exception.  Even when the sea was glassy, the boat still vibrated.  It is a new ship, November was it’s first voyage, I think, so maybe they are still working out the kinks.

Anyway, over the course of the cruise, I took the following pictures.  You will see that the boat is quite elegant and HUGE.
