Review summary

To be honest we booked this cruise because Princess was having 2for1 sale and we wanted to see the "sky-walk".  We decided on this ship because it was new and the timing was perfect.

We booked a balcony and we were surprised how much smaller it was compared to those we were familiar with on Carnival. 

The ship seemed to vibrate continuously no matter where you were on the ship .

YTD was not done well. If you ordered early, the early seating was still served before YTD.  The service was extremely slow and the food mediocre.

The food on the buffet line was great.  This area was very open and a lot a variety.  There were hand washing stations as you entered the area, a nice touch.

The Atrium was open and beautiful. Demonstrations,entertainment, dancing and fashion shows were held there.

The serenity area was costly to use, free to walk through.

The sky-walk was all we hoped it would be. The opposite side of the ship also had a glass bottom, but was a bar with a daily show.

Princess uses their lifeboats as tenders, which we found refreshing.

The horn plays the theme from the "Love Boat" and was fun when we sailed just before the Royal Princess as they serenaded each other.

We would probably sail on this ship again.
