Disappointed in Princess Cruises - commercials don't match what they deliver

Sail Date: March 06, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

This is our third cruise with Princess and so I am being generous on the stars...Princess staff from cruise director to waitstaff were invisible and disengaged...probably afraid they'd have to discuss port changes/cancellations.  Communication and planning of onboard activities was awful.  No briefing by Cruise staff on any of the ports other then printed paper...even after a change while sailing. Ship is old and in need of a big time facelift.  Princess is pulling out of Houston and that was reflected in how the cruise treated their passengers.


Cabin / Stateroom
Good size, like having the extra sitting area and balcony. The bathroom floor needed a major clean and smells from the toilet area was like the waste system needed repairs. Lighting for women was not good. Closet area not functional.

Onboard Activities
Thank goodness they had three great performers onboard as well as outstanding group of singers/dancers and orchestra ...the lounge groups and activities were awful.
