For me, I have not sailed either ships, or even cruised at all, first one is in May on the Dream. I justified the extra $ for a DCL for the experience and enjoyment that our kids 8 and 11 will have and that my wife and I will enjoy. Granted, we could have gone on a Carnival Cruise or Royal Carribean for at least $1,000 for the same crusie length.

I read your itinerary and the I love the DCL one better, way better, Princess seems to be real heavy on Greece, DCL does go to Greece but only one port so you will be able to scratch that off the bucket list. Venice is awesome, I have been in March and we absolutely loved it, favorite place I have visited hands down, but I have heard not so good reviews in the summer time, extremely crowded and smelly, I have read to avoid Venice in the Summer months.

$4000 is a lot to think about, but it is about the same when you decided to book DCL vs. other cruise lines in the past.

From a itinerary and ship preference stanpoint I would go with DCL if money was not an issue.
