Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The service at the main dining and specialty restaurant was fantastic and the buffets was the best we had yet and we have sailed 12 other cruises with Princess and other cruise lines and before this one.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
We enjoy the out door track as well used the poor every day. How ever their was no separation between the kids pool and the one for adults. There seem to be children running and screaming all over the place with very little control or excess for adults that wanted to use the pool.

The shows was just okay not by far the best we seen. However we enjoyed the movies under the stars. The casino was small, I would advise all those who would want to try their luck at the casino not too ....unless they had lots of money to throw away.
