Saw some not so good reviews of this new ship before we went. But we liked it. Have been on 20+ cruises on various cruise lines with Princess and Celebrity our favorites. Food was excellent and never a problem at Anytime Dining. Ship is immaculate. Staff very nice. Entertainment good. We especially liked the new (not on older Princess ships) Adult only swimming pool area. Own bar area, near movies on deck and elevators. Pool heated nicely.
New buffet layout took a little getting used to but once learned made getting food and dining easier than their other ships. Atrium and International Cafe area better done than otheir other ships which were fine as well. We even liked the dancing water show and the over the ocean walkway, although glad we did not have a cabin across and below from that walkway-no privacy there.
Like other balcony cabins ontheir other ships except the balcony itselfis not as deep but worked OK. Sinck much better and larger and shower was bigger. So overall it was quite fine. No problem with toilet paper dispenser as reported in other reviews.
Never felt crowded for such a large ship. Nice people flow everywhere.
