Review Summary

I was also on the Oct 10th coastal cruise and fully agree with another poster. This cruise was Thumbs a Down! Looked like they couldn't find any quality  entertainment so they hired third rate performers. They didn't have a stage production until the second to last night. No balloon drop, no end of cruise party in the Piazza. Dining room waiters were rude. So was the head waiter. The cruise director fell down on his job. This cruise was lack-luster and Blah. The same cruise the following week was noticeably better. Quite a difference.

Wall bunks encroach on access to the bed. We were not advise that the cabin has bunk beds and their online deck map and cabin layout do not show obstructing bunks. We had to scoot and sidestep to get into and out of bed. Kept hitting our heads as we got in and out of bed. We now see that Shipmate has better and more complete cabin info than Princess.
