A Few Problems

Sail Date: April 17, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We had a few problems.  Several were weather related.  We didn't leave Houston for 1 full day.  Thus we arrived later in our first few ports.  Our stop in Holyhead was completely obliterated due to high seas and the worry about tendering in.  This was very disappointing because we had booked an excursion for the pfestinog railway.  The other problem was , that my military credit was not listed.  I had to jump through some hoops to get it.  The on-line site for Princess says that once you claim it, they have a record of it, and you don't have to do it again.  However at the service desk, they said you had to do it for every cruise.  Other than that, I believe it was quite enjoyable.  enjoyed the ports we did get to visit.  The hired help was very good including waiters, and the person that cleaned our room etc. Happy

several people were told that you would have a bridge director. They not only didn't have one, but several people had to pitch in for equipment. Even enough cards were hard to obtain. Had to make up our own travelers. and had a knowledgeable person to do the computer work. also the bridge game should be kept a distance away from some of the other games being played simultaneously, as some of the other games are very noisy.

Hop-on bus tour is great & inexpensive.
