We were very excited about this cruise on a brand-new ship and that is maybe why we feel somehow disappointed by Princess. Not mentioning that the ship remained without propulsion during 30 minutes on sea due to some electric generator failure, we found Royal Princess under our expectations and below the high price paid: the air conditioning in the Allegro Dining restaurant malfunctioning, the TV system down most of the time, the Horizon Restaurant for lunch offering special dishes (like Chinese food or Japanese Sushi) very seldom and very unpredictably, not enough places where to drink something and watch the sea, almost no places at all where to lie on a chaise longue and have some quiet time for yourself, not even a deck with possibility to walk around in open air more than a few meters,unattractive items in the shopping area, and many more regrets....
The departures from the port of calls were almost permanently forced earlier than provided in all the documents at the moment of cruise booking, a thing that put pressure on those passengers who independently booked shore excursions. No reason was offered for this schedule violations.
The captain's routine messages, usually about what is he going to do after leaving the ports of call were compulsory for everyone, broadcasted via the emergency announcement system, no matter of passengers' option: we were on vacation, but we felt like in the army, forced to listen to the commanding officer!
As positive remarks I should mention the ship's design, the decoration quality, the inspired musical live shows that were accompanying our stays in the bars and lounges, the embarkation and disembarkation services that were well organized, the staff being courteous and hard-working.
