It has been nearly a month since I went on a two week cruise with Princess from 12/21/09 to 01/04/10. It was called the Carribeab Collection cruise. The ship looked old and tired even though it was only a little over 10 years old. It needs refurbishing.

Service was okay except in the Horizon Court Buffet Restaurant. Service was simply horrible. Some waiters would look the other way despite gestures for service. Other times, the wait was too long. I ended up getting my drink myself after my meal on the way out of the restaurant.

Food and Dining

Dining room food was so so. However, food at the Horizon Court buffet was very good.
