Review Summary

I thought the service was poor. The staff always had a quick answer that didn't solve the problem. The dining staff was good - it just seemed like the rest of the staff did the minimum. The food was okay. Breakfast and luch were fine- dinners were just okay. The last 2 nights of the (10 day) cruise the food was excellent. The other nights it was fair at best. The cruise destinations were fantastic and the weather was great. We had a great time but I would recommend a different cruise line.

Waitstaff was great. The overall staff did the minimum.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Our ship didn't have the "movie under the stars that Princess advertises. It also didn't have restaurants to upgrade to. The Steak Loft was the same food from the kitchen but for a $15 upgrade per person.

Cabin / Stateroom

This was an older ship. It wasn't that clean and was worn.
