Disappointing!! Princess has been
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
The ship was jam packed- & unfortunately like some other cruise lines, particularly Carnival, they've taken to designing ships with very small & nondescript dining rooms and surprisingly small public areas, buried in the inards of the ship. The gym, vines winebar & the pub are enjoyable & well done, though crowded. But More little else will impress. The entertainment was absolutely embarassing. The production shows (2) had one or two quality staff, the rest were rank amateurs. They had the same comedian entertain for 3 of the remaining nights- he was funny the first night, & the crowd pretty much looked at each other the second two. It was almost like they had an entertainer cancel at the last minute & decided to just have the same comedian stand up there for three nights. Worthless!
The beds could hardly be called beds- more like a slab of wood with a thin pad on top- very hard & uncomfortable, & of course, small. This cruise ship reminded us of flailing airlines with service problems- as if they enjoy endlessly finding ways to cut this & that to save a few pennies. Though we've previously had good experiences on them, they've clearly changed their experience for the worse- we'll never sail on Princess ever again- Less
Cabin review: BBB757 Balcony
The BB cabins were well appointed by unusually narrow- we aren't large & could barely maneuver in the shower. This was one of the higher categories yet one of the smallest cabins we've ever had. Clearly, when they designed this ship, they shaved an extra foot or two off the width of the cabins to squeeze more in. We had a fantail (rear facing) location- they have outside doors between balconies, which is nice- but the balconies were very small. The beds were the hardest & most uncomfortable we've ever tried to sleep on.Read All Balcony (BB) Reviews >>
