The princess crew are efficient and polite. The diamond princes should have some refreshment to be called diamond. The cabines and the rerraces shows its age. same are the coridores.
The commercial atitiud were ever you go the ship, gives the feeling - its all about money.
Besides food, you pay for every thing: starting with coffee, water, service, drinks etc.
On our cruise they even try to save on food at the open buffe resturants. After 2 days of sailing the Captain declared about a mysteriuos deseas - and from this day to the end - the open buffe became a service buffe with unended lines - and untuocheble food.
The cabin is smaller than expected, litle old style, very organize with good space for all. Very small bathroom, with some flashing problems, which were fixed after 3 attempts.
The land toures by princess, are terrible expensive with no reason - but making more mony.
On the Pros: it is the ultimate vacation. Very relaxing, good entertainment and very good food at the dining resturants. On our cruise - amaising views at new zealand fiordland and the ports.
