Review summary

Most of the cruise was enjoyable, however, the day before sailing for a planned port of call to Le Havre the itinerary was changed to cancel the call because of a port workers strike. Research has shown us that the possibility of this strike should have be known to Princess well in advance of this cruise. I feel this information was withheld from us until the day before the planned stop.

No compensation, voucher, or ship credit was even offered as an apology for this disappointing change.
