First of all Royal Princess is a huge ship.  There are no stairs mid ship or for that fact next to elevators if you choose to walk.  The rooms are much smaller.  Also when a Baltic cruise is your itinerary the ship should have had a covered pool area where you could at least sit outside and enjoy their large screen.

You are charged a daily tip charge which can be paid in advance or after cruise.  However, they also charge your account $2.00 to bring a continental breakfast to your room.  Which with everything this cruise costs I find very petty.  The excursion guides booked on the ship were very poor and the excursions were very rushed.  The evening shows were average to below average.  The food on the lido deck was terrible.  Sandwiches were made with stale bread.  The dining room food was average.

In all the itinerary was very interesting
