Review summary

This is the 4th time I've sailed on Princess and always thought the cruise line was very good but this time it was a let down. The food was mediocre, the wine selection was non existing, the servers didn't seem happy to be there (in fact there was grumbling over heard) and the cabin attendant was ok but not really on top of things. The post disappointing was that of the port we visited all but 2 had to be tendered in and out with long waits on disembarking and embarking; it was awful, disorganized and uninformative. I don't think I will be using the Princess Cruises again.
