Traveled As: Family (young children)
Room Type: Oceanview
The ship itself was beautifully decorated with plenty of popular public areas. We never felt it was overly crowded, even though it was fully booked. The staff followed the Princess motto of being available, but unobtrusive. Everything was kept very clean and well maintained. The food was delicious and there was a good variety. For post-port afternoon snacks on the pool deck, my daughter loved the grilled food (burgers and hotdogs) and ice cream, and I enjoyed the pizza. We met a lot of great people through the "anytime dining" and liked the flexibility of being able to eat on our own schedule. We never had to wait long for a table. This was our first Princess experience and we will most certainly be repeat customers.
Pros: The itinerary, and the ship and its amenities, service and food
Cons: The relatively short time in ports that required extensive travel time to key cities like Paris and Florence
