Review Summary

Princess Cruises has gone down the road of of providing activities centered on games, trivia, spa seminars (really sales pitches) and art or jewelry events. Where are the interesting lectures about the area your in or on topics of general interest. When they do have them, these lectures fill the Princess Theatre. The concept of the Piazza where Princess schedules so many fun and interesting event can only be viewed by about 200 of the 3000 on board with little seating. People are required to for the most part stand around the rails or steps blocking traffic and causing congestion. It doesn't help that jewelry tables and photo set up block the area as well. Even the Captain held his welcome and intro of staff there. I am looking for a new cruise line even though I am Elite. With the loud musical shows and truly low quality of guest performers, it's hard to find interesting quaility things to do on Princess Cruises.
