Oh my! Our first experience of Princess line and definitely our last. I am well aware that there will be a flood of responses opposing my views but I wonder how many of those who thought it anything above average have ever been on a good cruise line.
When getting on and off in port not once did anybody say "enjoy your day" or "welcome back" just a disinterested security guard scanning our ship cards without so much as a good afternoon. The list of minor faults is long and whilst they seem minor in isolation they add up to a picture of a cruise ship if not line, in a poor state. Never, ever again - we're sticking to quality lines like Azamara, where at least they make you feel like they care.
As for ports not listed on this site, Brest was shut! Currently building a tram system so the whole centre was literally a huge building site. Guernsey was ok but 4 hours was more than enough.

Cabin review: Grand Princess Mini-Suite with Balcony Emerald Deck d726
D726 Mini Suite. Good sized clean cabin. Balcony open but therefore overlooked. Not too fussed about being overlooked - it's no different to being in a public area. I preferred the fact it was open and therefore not in constant shade as the higher deck balconies were.
