Was looking forward to this cruise, all the aft rooms had soot all over the balconies. Food was not good in the dining room we only ate there 3 to 4 times. Had turkey one night is was tough white meat, corn bread was bad also. They put a slice of sweet potato on the my plate. Desert was almost the same every night. Food was good in the Crown grill but there was a charge for that $50 a couple. Bathrooms were so small toilet paper you had to twist your body up to reach it. Had to ask for soap to wash your hands. The whole ship was boring mostly a geriatric cruise ship. Laser light show wasn't working at all. TV was constantly not working. Shows limited to 30 min. only. Princess theater has no tables in it to hold drinks or even cup holders built into chairs.

Coming from Deck 12 you take the elevator to Decl 7 then walk down the hall a ways to center of the ship then take another elevator to deck 5 were the dining rooms are. Not enough people working on the ship and for sure they do not smile much at all.

Would not use this cruise lines again. Ship had a lot of hipe but thats it.

Just not an upbeat experience. Seems most of there passengers play scrabble and play cards thats it. Even at times the music is boring.

Cabin review:

Balcony had soot on it we were not able to enjoy it or the wake in back off the ship. In fact even the suite's had soot on them. Rugs in cabin are stained deluxe cabin is so very small. Not enough draw spec at all.
