Let me start with dinning, originally we selected 6:00 pm setting but it was changed to 5:30 pm. Service was slow, we waited over 40 minutes for main course. Our waiter kept saying kitchen line is long. Later we discovered that management combined 5:30 and 6:00 dinner group into one setting end result was overwhelmed kitchen staff. Food itself missed the mark. As to the buffet food layout were confusing and little variations of menu item. I suppose if you prefer quantity over quality you should be happy.
Elevators are slow and constantly crowded due to not enough elevators in mid ship area.
The ship was beautiful and large balcony cabin was a plus. Lots of storage space, very comfortable bed. Our cabin staff, staff was very efficient and very helpful.
We attended a couple of the shows in the Princess theater and they were all well done. They perform the same show at least twice a night, so if you miss the early show you can catch the later hour. We purchased soda package which was mistake, I should have purchased Coffee package. Other than that they nickel and dimed you at every time, no free coffee and two bucks for bottle of water.
