No walking path around ship, only small circular one on top . Elevators HORRIBLE. Reduced dining room staff very noticeable.

Always allow extra time for elevators. Enjoy the beauty. Forget the movies (too old) Great Massages Delicious meaLS Can't get into speciality restraunts, esp. if you are traveling solo. Solo extra fare should be lower or eleminated. NO LIFEBOAT OR TENDER SHOULD EVER APPEAR ON A BALCONY

The elevators on the ship took forever and always full, I don't think there were enough for the amount of passengers.

The promenade did not go all around the ship and it was confusing getting from one end to the other. I like it when I can walk around the entire ship on one level.

Don't buy the extended soft drink, nor the alcohol 10 day "deals"! purchase when you go ashore, and decant into water bottles---these are never checked. buy a case of pepsi and bring on board.

Most of the deck lounge chairs were used and hard to find because of so many people on deck trying to get some sun.

Try to take the stairs and not the elevators. You wait for a long time to get one that's not full.

wE PAID THE DAILY RATE FOR TIPS BUT TIPPED OUR CABIN CREW AND EXTRA $75 PLUS THE DINING STAFF. THEY ALL WERE THE BEST AND VERY INTERESTING TO TALK WITH ABOUT THEIR FAMILIES BACK HOME. I LEARNED SO MUCH FROM THE STAFF. OUR SOCIAL DIRECTOR, LISA , I HAD ON MY LAST CRUISE AND SHE IS THE GREATEST.

Buy excursions on shore because they are cheaper than on ship.

Best ship among the Princess ships so far. Best food and entertainment.

I have a very small note to make, the toilet rolls in the bathrooms in our state rooms are situated in a very bad place.

Pick a mid-ship cabin to cut down the miles of walking.

For example: Be prepared to do alot of walking. The ship is huge but never seemed crowded.

My tip is to relax and enjoy the amenities the ship has to offer. Ask the employees, they are professionals and will help you. Remember you are on vacation....enjoy

Due to navigational regulations for the ports of call on this trip, we found the Casino closed more often than open. For instance, one night it was only open midnight to 2 am. There were several days during the trip where it wasn't open at all on a given day.
