Review summary

I am not happy with Princess cruises and their yo yo pricing with no compensation when they lower the price down $350×2! So other than that fact the Lido pool was nice, the card room was easy access from our stateroom.

Food and Dining

The main dining room was exquisite. Ask for Olga at breakfast and lunch. Our waiter at dinner was Alvin asst. Waiter Joseph. Amazing service!

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Non existant! Except for the occasional game show in the evening. There was not much to do. We did two craft days and the third was the recycled menus made into boxes. That was fun!

The stage productions were wonderful. The magician was good and that says a lot. I dont normally go to those shows!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Waiters, room stewards were wonderful. The last night had a problem in the Explorers lounge with the bar staff. The server was Not efficient.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
The ship was clean. But who ever designed this ship should be fired! Who ever thought having the dining room in the forward of the ship was a good idea? The show rooms and casino, which was tiny do to the remodel. Were never full. Hard to maneuver around deck 5 and 6.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
This was a handicapped cabin. Fine for two but if there would have been three we would have been in big trouble. I would not have been happy climbing stairs to get into and out of bed. This has berths for kids only! Travel agent didnt tell us that.

Ship tip

Eat in the dining room on embakation day!

Easy disembarkation. Not enough porters. Could have been because it was Sunday.
