I had heard so much about Princess Cruises' ships. I will have to say I was disappointed. I have been on more than a dozen, and I wasn't at all impressed. First, the ship was beautiful, the service excellent, but the food I would rate poor. It just didn't meet the cruise ship standards.I had purchased 2 rooms, one was $235, one for $680. When one party backed out, I decided to use the $680 room with a mini- suite with a balcony. I called the travel agent, who made the switch. When we arrived we spent over an hour trying to get our room. They had given the $680 room to someone else. They did upgrade us, but we didn't get our room I had paid for. I think I should have gotten what I paid for.That next day had breakfast, skipped lunch and had dinner, we went down to eat before we went to bed. They had announced the Midnite Buffet would be ongoing until around 2:00 AM. We went down and the Midnite Buffet had closed at 11:30. We were told we could order something off of the menu. We went back to the room and ordered room service. This was a first for a cruise ship. Everyone I spoke to was disappointed with the food.If this was a sample, I'll pass on Princess. Don't judge a good cruise ship by it's size.B. Lewis
