Review summary

Have never complained about cruise ship food, so this is a first. The specialty restaurants were very good and Alfredo's pizza was excellent including the service. But the main dining room food was sub-par at best. Will stick to R.C.C.L. or Carnival. Never a problem with those lines. On a cruise food is an important item and Princess did disappoint. The 4.2 rating is deceiving and if not for the food it would have been higher.

Very good specialty restaurants. The main dining room was very much hit and miss. Cold food was a major concern and the meat served was not chewable.

Alfredo's Pizzeria

Lunch twice and dinner on the last night. If you like thin crust pizza this one is for you
