Review summary

Our only issue & this is a major issue. We paid for the transfer from the airport to the hotel. We booked a pre-cruise 3 days in London before boarding the ship. We arrived at 5:30 am and there was no one to collect us. It took 3 hours and the help of a Princess Rep, who was there to collect passengers for another cruise, to get us a car to get to the hotel. This was 3 hours of London time that was lost. It was no way to start a vacation.

The food was delicious. The portions perfect. The presentation incredible. However, I would have like the 3 main dining rooms to have slightly different menus for dinner.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The size was perfect. The room was clean. The problem was the pillows were much to soft and the mattresses need to be changed. We are experiencing still days after the cruise ended painful back aches.
