Thoroughly enjoyed this cruise! We upgraded to a balcony room and then ended up with a handicapped room which gave us lots of space! SO glad we had a balcony as the views were wonderful. Lovely way for quiet, alone time.

Meals in main dining were always delicious....and with great service. Paid for special dining room one night and was delighted there also....although we preferred the company of our table mates as they were interesting and fun people.

Lots of space to wander around on the ship and never felt crowded. Never a long line to eat. Buffets seemed fresh and tasty.

Ship overall was very clean with crews constantly about cleaning.

Entertainment was ok...however, there was always something going on to attend. I like to read and was actually able to relax!

Plenty of time at ports with great organization to make on/off a breeze.

We started in Rome and ended in Venice. Spent five days in Venice at a hotel that we found and More booked on-line.

I will definitely take another Princess cruise! Less

Cabin review: Balcony

R302. Handicap room with balcony. Near enough to elevators to be handy yet it was very quiet. Nice, large bathroom. Large balcony. Not a high expense balcony room, but we were very happy with it.

Port and Shore Excursions

Wandered around on our own. Did some shopping. No hassle. Beautiful area...lots of photos. Lovely outdoor seating restaurant...good food. Quiet and relaxing.

Amalfi Coast
We used Viator for three different port tours. Did NOT want to go into Naples as we don't like the big city, crowded feel. We hired an single vehicle with private driver who took us down the Amalfi coast, stopped for lunch where he recommended, made several other photo-op stops and did a little shopping. He was SO nice and spoke good English and gave us lots of information. Very professional, clean, and neat. Vehicle was very clean and nice, too. Beautiful drive and so glad we did this!!

What a beautiful spot....just wandered around and took photos, cool drink and wandered some more.
