We chose this cruise for the length,dates and rates and that we had already experienced the Crown on a previous cruise. By chance the ports of call were all interesting ones.
We only booked about 10 days before departure date, and for the first time were prepared to try an inside cabin. In the end we settled on an ocean view,deck 8, Emerald deck.
Our cabin, E627, was more comfortable then expected, with the bed on the side wall and not under the window as we had expected. This gave us a feeling of spaciousness, and we had more than ample room with loads of cupboard and hanging space. A nice touch is the refrigerator.
Our cabin steward introduced himself and from then on it was easy sailing, nothing was too much trouble for him.
The dining rooms, and options, we prefer anytime dining was more than satisfactory, one comment is that in the buffet not enough thought is put into keeping vegetarian dishes separate from the others. Food is plentiful and tasty, enough choices to satisfy everyone.
Evening entertainment ranged from good to outstanding. The Princess Dancers put on top class shows, and the other entertainers were so good we went back to hear them a second time.
Other services such as embarking/disembarking and the tender service in Santorini was extremely well organised with only a few minutes wait.
In short, what we expected, and more. No doubt we will continue to cruise with Princess.
