I think what one of the pp's was trying to say is...
On the ship, once you are let into line, you WILL meet the princesses. The cast members who are monitoring the lines will cut off more people getting into line about 10 minutes before they are scheduled to be done, so that everyone in line gets their turn to meet the Princesses.
The Princess party is not to be missed...there are at least 4 Princesses in the lobby atrium, and your dd will get to meet, get photographs, and get autographs with each one, and you only wait in the one line. My dds are older now, but it was the highlight of one of our early cruises.
Also, on the ships, the Princesses tend to "break free" away from the scheduled appearances, and wander the ships. One of my dds best memories was encountering Ariel in a random hallway one day, and the 10 minute conversation that they had. As Ariel is my dd's favorite, she was in absolute awe! (And mom may have had a few tears over it!)

That all being said, the Castle is a great experience, and you might want to do it SOME day. But for this trip, I'd skip it and take the chance with the character interactions on the ship.

Have a great trip!
