Entertainment was not too bad, and the Groove Babies, a female duet, were fantastic. My daughter and I went to their show every night.

Our captain, William Kent, with his wonderful British accent, kept us informed, especially in Stockholm, where it was extremely foggy, and where he said that the safety of his passengers was more important than anything else. I didn't see or heard too much from our Cruise Director, Richard Joseph, with whom I had a wonderful conversation in the elevator without realizing who he was until I saw him on TV.

Some lucky person won the BMW or $25,000.00 in the casino. There was a presentation to her that night at 10:00pm.

We had an 11:15 am flight back to the states and got off the ship around 6:45 am and arrived in plenty of time for our flight. We planned to take a taxi to the airport, but Princess alarmed a lot of passengers with the dire warning that taxis were limited from 7am-9am and suggested that you take their Princess airport bus transfer to the airport. Not so. From my balcony I counted 30 taxis lined up waiting for passengers. Not sure why they would say that. We had to wait an hour at the airport before finally checking in and then 5, yes 5, security check points before getting to our boarding spot.

Anyhow, we had a wonderful cruise; I had always wanted to visit this part of the world and was happy to be able to do so. I did however wish that we had more time in the ports.
