Review Summary

The ship was clean and comfortable. The only complaints were related to food quality/selection and entertainment options. We found the ship easy to get around and there were always personnel available to assist you.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Princess offers anytime dining but to make a specific reservation time was not an option. There were 2 times available 5:45 and 8:30. Other cruise lines allow you to have anytime dining but make a reservation for a specific time. Also, the food quality and selection was not as good as other cruise lines I have been on. The buffet had very limited options and they didn't change much every day. We had a poor waiter one evening and that put a damper on the meal.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
We felt that the onboard activities were lacking. Not much variety or interest. The production shows were "ok" but not to the quality I have seen on other cruise lines. Not sure I will sail with Princess again.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Except for the one problem we had with the waiter, the staff was always attentive and helpful.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The bathroom was smaller than other cruise lines I have been on but the balcony was larger. Overall it was a nice stateroom. One note - the hairdryers leave a little to be desired - bring your own! :-)

Pros: The itinerary and cabin steward

Cons: Missed some ports/excursions due to weather. Also, food and entertainment were not so great.

Recommends Star Princess? No.
