Steak house was great.
Steak house was great.
I booked a cabin midship with a "partial obstruction" view, better priced but it was a great location and the view was totally fine. Liked the E deck.
Be sure to try the gourmet pizzas on deck 6
Buffet areas become very busy early in the morning before excursions and right before port departures, so if you want to eat them, allow extra time and be prompt. Getting through the lines and finding a place to eat can be very challenging.
I dont agree with a charge for the speciality dining. Makes me think that the restaurant are not as good as the speciality ones. I traveled with princess time ago and I feel a lot of changes, some good and some bad. The quality of the food is not the same, it seems that now is focus on bussiness.
The deserts on the fifth floor in the cafe are better than the ones in the dining rooms. If your group does not have someone with a disability, do not book a tour. Travel by yourself with hop on hop off buses. It is much cheaper, and most cities have it, check with an expert on board.
My wife and I aren't big on crowds, so when I discovered the room service menu, we were delighted. We knew we could have a continental breakfast any day on our balcony, but a full meal was wonderful... sadly, I didn't learn about this until the last day. Maybe better service by our steward would he
Great Ship. Well keep. Smooth ride.
Have workers actually smile, be friendly and courteous to passengers
be prepared it is cool to cold weather, also rainy
There is good music in the wheelhouse bar and the vista lounge. Just check the schedule.
Great cruise for couples. Only seen 3 kids on bord the whole ship. Mostly 50 plus crowd. Would not reccommend for families with children. Not much for kids to do on the ship.
Be advised to keep track of what is going on in other eatery venues, since some of them have specials that you will only know about by reading the daily "Princess Patter". Order a bottle of wine and take it with you after, this practice is okay with them, having them hold it often is a mistake.
Embarking and disembarking was very bad
Get to the shows early.
The any time dining was well done, food was great.
Book your room in the back (aft) of the ship and you will avoid the waits for the elevators that you will experience if your cabin is located mid-ship.
The 15 punch coffee card is $29 on board and you can use it also use it for gelato (if you like it?)
if you want to eat is specialty dinning call ahead of time. we ended up having to wait for last minute cancellations to eat there.
There's a great Bellagio-style water show on the pool deck of the ship on some nights. On at-sea days for lunch there is a great Fish & Chips pub meal on the 7th deck. Also, a portion of the buffet is turned into a special upcharge restaurant some nights. One night it was the Crab Shack for $20.
