Review Summary

We've sailed with Princess four times before, and this fifth cruise was not nearly as good. We got the impression Princess was trying to cut on expenses. It was virtually impossible to get a table using the "anytime dining" option. The buffet selection was not as good compared with our previous cruises either.
