Review summary

I think we prefer an older ship with fewer passengers. Sea days were hard in finding seats on deck, crowded dining.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Smooth, efficient

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Food was very good but anytime dining was not. Long lines prevented us from eating when we wanted to. I had to make reservations just to insure no waiting.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Pools too crowded, not enough seating on deck in shade because people put towels down very early. Line dancing fun. But other activities had not enough seating for all.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
Very high tech, loud. Had to arrive an hour early to get a seat for production shows.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
High marks for room steward and waiters we had. Very personable.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
New ship, lovely decor, very clean. Disappointed that there was no front observation deck, no walking deck around entire ship, no game room, no library.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Very nice suite with small balcony. We were on Deck 8, one floor above the Princess Theater, thus hearing vibration and bass from music during shows. Lasted until 11 pm most nights. Not enjoyable

Ship tip

Don’t reserve a room above or below the Theater!

Ports of call
