Traveled As: Couple

Older ship, but very clean. Wait staff were adaquate, but not friendlly. (We were anytime dining.) Princess not effecient with dining, because they allow anyone access to anytime dining, which made it difficult to get setting at peak times. The entertainment was very good, with a new change to shorter events and more light effects, which improved the performances. Our room attendant was VERY deficient in English and could barely communicate our needs. (Bed linens were not changed daily and we had to send notes to have them changed!) We have cruised often and this was the first time we had been turned away from an evening production, which was dissapointing. Princess' policy of "nickel and diming" you for everything, was also dissapointing. Having said this, we enjoyed the cruise because of great ports of call, and this was why we choose this cruise. However, we will begin to look at other cruise lines in the future for our cruise needs. Princess is loosing our loyalty. (We are Premium cllub members.)

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Anytime dining was congested, at times and not properly monitored i.e. early and late diners were allowed to come to anytime dining, making for long lines and increased wait times.
