We live on Long Island, so driving to the terminal and parking there was very convenient. Boarding went quick and easy. This was our second Princess cruise and seventh cruise in total. We have cruised NCL and Royal Caribbean also. There was some good and bad.
First the good: The entertainment was we thought very good. The production shows were excellent as well as the comedians and the hypnotist.
The bad: First the food. We felt this was the worst food on a cruise we have experienced, and we were not the only ones. Many people we spoke with did not like the food. I spoke with a woman that didn’t want to go to the dinning room or buffet after the third day. The Pizza was good and came in handy when there was absolutely nothing to eat in the other venues. We did the Any Time Dining and asked for a table for two. The tables, especially the tables for two are generally situated in the worst places including next to each other,really next to each other.
Public places such as the main theater are small relative to the passenger capacity resulting in no seats unless you get there 45 minutes early. It’s been mentioned here that additional cabins have been added to the ship without regard to adding to the public spaces which seems to be the case.
