This Princess cruise was delightful.  The crew, from officers to deck hands, were friendly, made eye contact, and made sure we were enjoying the trip.  We enjoyed all the ports we visited, and really loved the activities on sea days.  Our anytime dining allowed us to meet a variety of fellow passengers while we enjoyed the food.  Production shows thrillled, as did other specialty performers.  There was a wide variety of musical entertainment opportunities, including a volunteer passenger pops choir that performed the last night aboard.

Ship Tip

If given the opportunity in anytime dining, make a reservation for your preferred time. You can either dine by yourselves (or with the party you came with) or opt to be seated with others whom you don't know. Early in the cruise, we had no problem being seated without a reservation but later did.
