Review summary

The ship was 40% full so there was no waiting or lines at elevators, at the buffet, or anywhere else. Captain was very personable and was skilled enough to get us into one port that another ship had to skip due to tricky weather and logistics.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
Other than waiting for COVID tests, the experience was good. Expedited Platinum and Special Assistance check-in helped.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Cleanliness was great in all areas of the ship. Layout was similar to other Princess ships. We missed having a bar/observation lounge on deck 17/18.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Since this was an accessible cabin, it was very roomy at each side of the bed as well as between the bed and the desk/TV area. The roll in shower was WONDERFUL!
