I see subtle changes in the menu, since all 12 of our cruises have been within this decade, I am very familiar with the menu. The food is good, just not what it used to be in the dining room. Pizza is yummy. The best at sea, so I've heard! if you're a coffe hound like my DH, don't go to the dining room for breakfast. He practically had to beg for refills. One morning the waiter never bothered to come with coffee after nicely asked twice. We went to the international cafe and he bought a premium coffee. Oh well, we had a great time, we always do. But at the end of the week, having spent all that time with 3,000 other pax, I'm ready to get off that ship!
Princess balcony cabins are not great in size. They are however; efficient with the space allotted, and attractive. The beds are hard and uncomfortable, pillows flat as pancakes. Our Caribe deck balcony was half open, half covered. Perfect! The really bad thing was C742 backs up to the steward's closet and every morning we were jolted awake by someone banging and clunking around in that closet! We love the aft section, it is usually quiet, with very little foot traffic.
