This ship is brand new and we thought that there may be a few glitches they were working out. On the contrary it was all perfect. Great mix of very attentive crew from different Princess ships so lots of interesting stories, nationalities and perspectives. Loved the outdoor movie theater. After dinner settle on a deck chair with a blanket provide and watch the latest movies. The last night they previewed a new show in the theater which was beyond spectacular. Food was outstanding no matter where you ate. Only complaint was the tendering process, they need to find a more equitable process. Those who had booked a tour through the cruise line had preference and the rest of the passengers (about 1,500 of us) had to wait for well over an hour, sometimes two, in the dining room for a tender. There were a lot of complaints so I am sure they are working on it.

My favorite stops: Kotor, the cruise out was spectacular and the city itself very unusual and interesting. Mykonos, was the all out favorite stop. Take taxi to one of the beaches for $15 and spend the day on a lounger, right on the beach as long as you buy something to eat or drink it is free. Food and drinks are very reasonable so it is a good deal.  Could have done with more beach locations and less historic towns and ruins. Most of the islands have a beach option, take that if archaeology is not your main interest.    

No matter what small hassles there may have been they pail into insignificance given the overall experience, it still get 5 stars for me.

Unless you do the Olympia (which we did not) the town is boring and dirty and expensive. Other who went to Olympia said it was great so do that
