For the most part it was a good cruise. Entertainment was first rate. However, smaller entertainment venues never had enough room to sit. Room attendant (Andrei) was excellent. Cabin and ship was in good condition. Cabin layout is the ... Read more

This was our 13th cruise with Princess and we found this trip to be the most unsatisfying ! It mostly revolved around the food! The food on the other ships has been good and much improved over what we have had the last few years. The ... Read more

Close to home,, no flying, easy ports. We wanted just a quick getaway and Princess offered us a great deal. We like to listen to the daily lectures, on this voyage there weren't any of relevance. We celebrated a birthday on board, went to ... Read more

chose this cruise because it was a great value on a mid-week cruise. Food was above average although steak I had was poor with very little flavor. I've lived in SoCal all my life so was not a big deal for excursions and ports. However I ... Read more
