Review summary

Princess has always been our favorite. This cruise seemed crowded and food selections at dinner were not as good as in the past. Seemed to cater to the large groups on board. The new Madallion system is not bready for prime time. WiFi was expensive and not as good as advertised.

Medallions to enter rooms did not work.

Food and Dining

Menu seemed to cater to a large ethnic group on the cruise. Horizon Court was always very crowed to the point were there were no dishes.

Concerto Dining Room

Clint and Jenny were great waiters. Very professional and personable. Food selections were ok.

Horizon Court

This was overrun by certain large groups. Sometimes impossible to get a seat. Also menu seemed to cater to certain groups. Sometimes there were no dishes left. Need to plan better.
