Newlove cruise on Royal Princess

Sail Date: October 31, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Overall rating of food was not good.  Pastries were dried out and appeared old.  Selections were limited if you do not eat sea food.  Dining service was extremely slow.  Food was tasteless.  Buffet was extremely crowded due to slow service in dining rooms.  Limited activities were available on board.  Midship elevators were near our room but always crowded and there are no stairs available at midship.  Dancing was in the Piazza which was a very small dance floor and not the right atmosphere for dancing.  The Princess singers and dancers were very good but did not perform every night.  Many activities were merely sales pitches to sell products or services.  Shore excursion personnel were very curt and needed customer service training.  Photos were very expensive and photo package deals did not allow any variation.  Shore excursions were over-priced for value received.

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin stewardess was very good. Cabin was kept immaculate and attendant was very cheerful. Size of cabin was similar to other cruises but balcony was much smaller. We had no obstruction to our balcony view which was very nice.
