October 2014 - Ocean Princess to Europe - Mediterranean
This was my 4th cruise but my first 'small ship' and it was small but very friendly. Our cabin steward was very attentive and helpful and our balcony cabin was terrific. We were even upgraded before we arrived at the ship! We used Room Service several times for breakfast before our excursions and they were always prompt. Our wait staff for dinner were a joy to talk to and they remembered our preferences and had drinks readied at the table before we got there; they were very efficient and entertaining. And you cannot imagine the food on the buffet; almost anything you could wish for. We went to every evening show and the entertainment was up-beat and very professional (I could have done without the Magician, but that's just my preference). We booked an excursion at every port except one and all but one of them were totally awesome. That one was a very nice leisurely ride into the hills away from the ship for a few hours. The port we did not book an excursion was at Santorini as we had heard of the gondola and donkeys and the shopping, so we decided to hoof it for the day. Had a great day!! This cruise was in the middle of a vacation so we had to use the laundry facilities and had to get change from the Passenger Desk. They were very friendly and knew just how many quarters to give us and even sold us stamps for our postcards!! All in all we definitely would cruise with Princess again.
