From the moment you walk on-board, you feel like someone special. You are welcomed with smiles and courtesy from the staff members. The rooms were kept very neat and tidy by our steward "Ronald". The buffet was pretty good on most days. The Botticelli dining room was amazing; the food was outstanding and our servers "Antonio" from Portugal and "Leo" indulged us in our every whim. These particular staff members made us feel like royalty. The shows in the Princess theater were pretty good especially the magician, he was awesome and funny. The one thing I would like to mention is the coffee in and around the buffet, it was pretty awful. It either tasted burnt or like dirty water yuck. The weird thing was, that in the dining room and through room service the coffee tasted just fine, haven't figured that one out yet. Another thing that I would like to mention is the fact that "smokers" were limited to so few places that they could indulge. Is this really fair? don't smokers deserve as much courtesy as anyone else? Our money was the same as non-smokers when buying our tickets, it is something people in the travel/entertainment industry need to think about. Ok, off my soapbox, overall the cruise was wonderful and I do hope to travel on more cruises in the future.
