Not a great experience

Sail Date: September 2013
Destination: USA
Embarkation: Seattle

We did a two night cruise from Vancouver to San Francisco. I have cruised with Princess Line about 8 years ago and had no complaints. This cruise was not as good. We were on the 7th floor in a balcony cabin.

The hallways where our cabin was smelled of sewage;

the air conditioner was extremely noisy and sounded like gale force winds;

the food in the buffet quite often was not very fresh;

the movies, which I would have enjoyed in the theater, were playing on the outside big screen but it was too cold and windy to sit out and actually watch anything;

and on the last night our cabin smelled like burning rubber or some other equally disturbing smell.

When we reported our cabin's odor we were told that it has been reported by other passengers already.

Due to the above we have chosen not to sail on a Princess Cruise again. Less
