TOO CROWDED and WORN OUT
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
Next port was Bar Harbor-a tender port with pouring rain. Princess can't help rain but the terminal at Bar Harbor is almost nonexistent and there was no place to get out of rain. Again we took a More trolley tour and saw almost nothing because of weather.
Next port was supposed to be St. John, however, the captain decided not to go into St. John due to weather, however, there was not much motion on the ship so we were surprised at that decision.
Next port was Halifax with about 6 big cruise ships in at the same time. It was chaos and all hop on hop off ALL tours were booked. We had never experienced that anywhere before. Seems like poor scheduling! Adding to that issue was the COLD -about 38 degrees with a lot of wind. We finally got a cab to the citadel and nearly froze even tho we were dressed fairly well. We walked to the Maritime Museum and then walked back to the ship because there was no public transport available.
Food on the ship was pretty good except the beef was terrible and very tough.Desserts are probably their best item. Dining rooms were extremely crowded and shows were extremely crowded. You had to go wherever you were going very early in order to get a seat-certainly not ideal. Also, this ship has the smallest internet and library space I have seen on ANY ship. It is ridiculous for 3,500 people. One small wall of books and 4 chairs in the same room with about 12 computers.
Princess is too interested in selling STUFF-paintings,tours, drinks, Photos and not as interested in customer service as they should be. Less
Cabin review: FE320
Cabin E 320 obstructed view-is quite obstructed, however, you can see where you are. Closet is good bathroom too small overall good central location in ship was quiet on our cruise without much motion-main issue is wear cabin furniture worn out.
Time to retire this ship!!!
Definitely "B Team". Substanti...
Ports and staff were excellent...
Great itinerary - British Isle...
