Review summary

Family enjoyed the ship's dining, coffee plan, burger and pizza vendors. Alvin and Jose (Da Vinci Restaurant staff) were on top of all things and very hospitable to all of us throughout the sailing. Kudos to them! Also enjoyed some of the entertainment including The Voice program and Lido Deck activities. The ports were great to visit and actually was able to see places that we haven't noticed there before. The weather during the trip was fantastic. We're already looking into the next adventure with Princess. Great job!

The Da Vinci Restaurant and staff ( Waiters Alvin and Jose) were absolutely wonderful and hospitable throughout. All our meals were provided in a efficient and presentable manner. They went out of their way at times to make our experience even more memorable. GREAT JOB!!!

International Cafe

Having the coffee plan on our cruise was a great amenity that we took advantage of and really enjoyed. The staff running the Cafe worked diligently and proficiently in providing the member's needs, with a smile and kind words, even at times of heavy crowds. Job Well Done!!

We enjoyed some of the movies presented in this very relaxing and entertaining atmosphere. With the blankets and popcorn at our disposal, it was a great treat!

Princess Theater

4 out of 5

The Princess Theater, the main entertainment venue on the vessel, had some great shows and other shows that did not tickle our fancy. Comfortable room for its vast size.
