Review summary

Please see earlier comments for areas where I would like to see improvements. The Captain of the Sky was a joy. He actually came to the breakfast buffet on the departure morning and wished us a safe journey home. First class guy, in my view.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Food and dining room service was a "5 star"; cocktail service in the Crown Grill Bar (the premier dining venue on the Sky) was poor, i.e., very slow and incorrect (waited 20 minutes for the martinis and they were delivered with the wrong garnish. Ugh

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Missed the library. Must be only 4-star ship with no library. Probably because Princess doesn't make any money on the library.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
5-star -- except for the bartenders in the Crown Grill. He was excellent -- but he should not be expected to handle 80+ people in the lounge and the dining room. This bar should have two or three top-notch bartenders.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
A bit small compared with balconied cabins in other Princess ships.

Ship tip

Bring your own reading material (no library); do not get your cocktails in the Crown Grill Bar (poor service -- no more Crooners Bar, like on other Princess ships)
