Review summary

The destinations were GREAT!  All of the local guides and tours were perfect.  The people were very friendly and knowledgeable.  We have been on 25 cruises and this has to be one of the more disappointing ships we have been on.  Most of the staff were friendly but the few that were not brought down our whole experience.  The food in the dining room was OK but we have had much better on cruises before and the entertainment was not that good either!  We love Princess and love cruising but another experience like this one and we may look to other cruise lines in the future.

Normally write great reviews about the entertainment but this was below average for a cruise ship of this size.

Service and Staff

25 cruises and never been refused to enter the dining room. I dressed in smart casual on formal night because I wasn't feeling all that great and just wanted to relax. Head waiter refused to allow me in the dining room because I had a Polo shirt on and no long sleeves. Not like I was dressed in shorts and a t-shirt.

Ship tip

On all the excursions that serve lunch....expect Boiled chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy. We thought we would be experiencing some local fare but this was given to us on all five trips.
