Review Summary

We have been on better Cruises but it was an experience to remember. The staff and service was the very best. Staff smiled no matter the situation. The food on the other hand was Unsatisfactory. Overcooked, tough tasteless. Many complaints from cruisers. Overall we would not cruise again on that ship. Have cruised with princess before and have always enjoyed them. Food excellent, Service excellent, shows and activities were good. This is the first time we have been displeased. Could they be cutting back on quality for a bigger bottom line??
