Review summary

The food on this cruise was not good but the entertainment was even worse.  If you ate lunch at the formal dining room you had some choices but if you ate at the informal restaurant all they had were pasta dishes or a salad.  Breakfast was undercooked scrambled eggs, pork & beans, vegetables, fruits and very hard rolls.  The entertainment was a "comic" making noises on stage or an ex HGTV host trying to remember jokes.  The dance team on the ship needs someone new to plan their dances.  If you like squats and butt wiggles then this is for you.  We have always wanted to take a Princess cruise but will never take another one.

We got a room with a window but had to leave the curtain pulled because people were walking outside our window all the time. We could hear staff very loudly walking outside early in the morning. I have never seen a room with a window where people could be outside walking.
