Cruise seemed to be geared towards elderly/retired people. If you weren't retired, staff didn't bother with you. Cruise director was ok, but not great. Won't take another Princess cruise.

Food and Dining
1 out of 5
Anytime dining room was always crowded or had a long line. You could never make a reservation to sit with just your family. Had to get our own coffee at buffet because no one would ever come over to us. Never did find the free lemonade or water for buffet. Food was not good at all other than pizza station and not much variety. Not many options for restaurants that you didn't have to pay for compared to other cruises I have been on. Staff not overly friendly compared to other cruises I have been on.

The track was so small that you would have to run 100 laps to get a mile in. Boat seemed to be geared towards retired people. Not many activities for people younger adults. Bought Bingo tickets in Casino. Person selling tickets was rude.

Movies under the Stars were good but you had to get there VERY early to even get a seat. Did enjoy The Voice of the Ocean competition.

My teenager loved the teen club. Made many friends during the week. She loved the dance and some of the other activities that were planned.
Service and Staff
2 out of 5
Room steward was fantastic. Room was always clean and steward was always smiling and friendly. Waiters were less than friendly every place we went. No one went out of their way to make the experience special for us, yet I noticed they were extremely friendly towards the elderly repeat customers. Went to The Vine one night and was never even asked if we wanted to purchase a drink. Everyone around us was asked. We had to ask the waiter if it was ok for us to order a glass of wine. Very disappointing.

Ship was clean but the design was so confusing that in the week we were there, we never did figure it out. Even our teenagers had trouble and we have been on several cruise lines before and could figure out the layout after the first day.
Cabin / Stateroom
4 out of 5
Room size was small. Shower was very small. Beds small but comfortable. Cabin always clean. THANK YOU for that!
Did the 17 mile drive tour. Disappointing in the fact that if you sat on the wrong side of the bus, you never saw anything. People should have to switch seats part way through so everyone can enjoy the view at some point. Very expensive to see nothing unless we got off the bus. Tour guide was FANTASTIC! Gave us a lot of history and explained so much about the area.
Pretty city. Did a trolley tour of the city. It was ok. Got an Uber and the driver told us to see Ocean Beach. It did not disappoint. Beautiful, beautiful place. Spent a better part of the day there shopping and enjoying the beach.
