After being on over 30 cruises, this had to be in the top 2-3. It started off really bad when Princess didn't have any shuttle service at the airport with around 80 people there wondering what to do now. Somehow, someone procured busses ... Read more

This cruise was recommended by House of Travel and in some aspects we were disappointed as we were told that as long as we had evening wear on we could dine in any of the restaurants on board. This was not true and we were refused entry ... Read more

Excellent food--a real surprise given the decline of cruise food in recent years. Entertainment very spotty--a couple of very good guest singers, so-so production shows (maybe I've seen too many) bad comedian in the theater, but a good ... Read more
