Cutting down

Sail Date: March 24, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

The staff in the boutiques could care less whether one purchased or not, they just were not interested. I did not like the "hard sell" in the Spa when one is trying to relax. Princess is cutting down in obvious ways, from charging for icecreams, to one pat of butter per person. The staff were eager to please and exc eptionally helpful except the Boutiques. The Pursers staff need to be more cognisant of passengers needs, they have a hard time undersanding what one wants and you get this blank stare.

Pros: Helpfulness of personnel

Cons: hard sell

Recommends Island Princess? Yes!
