Review Summary

From check-in at the pier until leaving the ship a week later my husband and I were amazed at the way Princess controlled the "crowds". We never had to wait any length of time in a line. There were so many pools on the ship that it never seemed crowded. The 24-hour eatery was superb - the food selection was one of the best - and we speak from experience - this was our 32nd cruise but only our first on Princess. The dining room food was excellent, ouir stateroom was very clean and our room steward was so good we never saw him! The only drawbacks were beverage service in the public areas. When we ordered drinks in the theater it took 15 minutes to get them. Same at poolside. It became easier to go to one of the bars if you wanted anything from a soda to an alcoholic drink. We suggest hiring more bar waiters. Also in the dining room if we ordered wine or an alcoholic drink with dinner the assistant waiter was the person who had to get it for you. Once again we suggest having a wine steward and bar waiters handling this so the assistant waiter can do his job and you don't have to wait so long for your beverage. But bottom line - will we sail again on Princess? Absolutely - when it was Tuesday & we looked at each other & had trouble remembering what day it was we knew it was a very relaxing cruise!
