The sky-walker nightclub was a lovely area with panoramic views but not used properly. Disco for the children/family until 22:30 hrs put all other passengers off going up there and if we did venture up there later maybe only 6-8 people there. Such a pity as it could have been so much better. I blame the cruise director who seemed to put no effort into his remit.
The shore excursions were very over priced and we spent £300 on a trip to Seville which was at best a 1/2 day trip. The train to Rome was lovely and would do that again. We mainly made our own way to the various ports otherwise.
The formal nights were very nice and we enjoyed a Photography course that we took.Photos again very expensive therefore many people did not buy them.The on board Art Auctions we enjoyed very much and bought a few paintings we love. 15% tax on all drinks was a bit steep and we opted out of the daily gratuity which they wanted to take. Tips went to staff we felt deserved it! Overall we enjoyed the cruise but would not go with Princess again, due to the above and also we had problems with the on board account which the Purser failed to help with and we spent £100 on the phone to our bank. The staff and the room was very good but other problems made us glad when it was over. Would not recommend Princess to our friends. Too big and too busy.and over run with children.
