Carribbean Princess cruise stared on wrong track with virus out break and fog delay.

Understanding all that, there were many issues with this cruise especiaaly poor quality of the food served at dinner.

We had an excellent dinner in the Crown restaurant while having to send back meat in the main dining room.

One should be pay $25 daily to get a good dinner in the evening.

The ship had over 3100 passengers and there were lines everywhere- for buffets; shows and any time dining to name a few.

The cabins were smaller than other cruise lines we have sailed with.

We enjoyed the fellow passengers we met as well as the entertainment. The ports were fine also.

Princess various  charges and policies ere very annoying and we will choose a cruise where many of the annoying fees are included. 

I do realize we had a very late start and there may have been more crew ill than they chose to reveal- the quality of the meats served were very poor and disappointing.

We waited 15 years to sail Princess again(excellent Alaska cruise)  and will have no plans for future Princess cruises.
