Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
This ship is an old ship 2003 and compared to other Princess that have been update this one is different. Although the Crew was excellent and this was the best Captain ever I did not like the lay out. I've been on a lot of Princess cruises and this ship as just off for me. Buffet was forward on deck fourteen, burger place was on deck 15 with no elevator you had to walk outside that's ok but it rain a few days so if you wanted that you walked outside to the dinning room. Elite lodge had no views.

Onboard Activities
