Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was good! Not as good as other cruise lines.

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
Worst ever. There was literally nothing to do on deck. No dancing, no activities, the cruise director was non-existent, and it was a pretty boring week, overall. If I wasn't with such a large and fun group, I would have been bored to tears. Luckily, my friends made it amazing and we were there for work and that part was great.

Children's Programs

No kids, obviously

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Staff was pretty nice. It was odd how when you needed someone, you waited forever. But then I couldn't dnt even set a drink down or a menu down without it being swiped away from me within a minute. Then, I had to ask for a new menu or drink 2-3 times during dinner. It was super odd how thwy just had to keep clearing my space over and over and I repeatedly told them to stop.

Ship Quality

Average ship. Nothing impressive.

Cabin / Stateroom

Love the cabin set up. Plenty of room!

Ship tip

More activities, there was nothing to do on board and the movies on the big screen were ehorrible, activities director needs to be present and mingle with guests. This is how its done with royal Caribbean, carnival, and Norwegian. If you don't gamble or drink, there's not much for someone to do on a Princess cruise. Definitely won't be back or recommend it to others.

Never have I ever felt so harassed and sexually exposed in my life. The men were disgusting, would not stop making comments to me, and they were very invasive and would not leave me alone. There's a difference between saying hi and helping people and what these men were doing. They literally did not care that I am a human. They treated me like a peice of meat and actually thought that starring me down and making comments about my body would make me want to buy stuff.
