Tired Ship

Sail Date: April 02, 2016

Room Type: Suite

This being our first Princess cruise, but the 8th overall, we were somewhat disappointed.  The ship was clean, the staff friendly and professional for the most part, but the buffet food was C- at best, and sit down dinner venue B- to C.


The ship is old and it shows.


Perhaps its not fair to judge the entire line by this one ship, but its hard not to; especially when you consider the food quality.  Quantity was not the problem; it just didn't taste any different than what you would find at your local Denny's restaurant.


We won't be using Princess again.
