Review summary

Was very nice. Staff was great and accommodating Overall I really enjoyed it, but it was frustrating having antiquated entertainment systems - movies and internet. Should update to the new Medallion system that is on other Princess Ships

Embarkation

Ship came from Europe so crew had to go through customs and also an annual Coast Guard Inspection. Not enough staff. 3000+ People in a holding area for hours waiting
