This was our 4th cruise with Princess, but this was the first time where we had difficulty obtaining a seat in the Horizon dining area due to people placeing objects on chairs and tables to reserve seats for others that were not even in the Dining area at all. Walking shore excursions were somewhat rushed although very factual for the time we had. Tenders were great with the exception of one which was totally disorganized and late getting off the ship. The Horizon dining area was total chaos during meals with no organization at all for traffic flow through the buffet. Again, the staff did the best they could and if not for them, I would probably not sail on princess again. Although with the Pitfalls as mentioned, it was a nice cruise and we met alot of friends and very nice people. I do not base Princess on this one cruise but by the others combined. I will try them again in the future for sure.Although we did not utilize most of activity or excercise areas, there was plenty of room for walking and the entertainment , theatre and displays lived up to preious cruises we have been on with Princess. I mostly hung out in the bars at poolside and the all the staff were exceptional as usual. My favorite morning spot was the expresso bar where Carman made me my favorite Americano expresso. My hats go off to all the Princess staff. Read Less

We travel with Princess frequently and picked this cruise because we could celebrate our golden wedding anniversary during the cruise. The itinerary was similar to the cruise we took 10 years ago, with a few different stops. We did the traditional dining and had a wonderful time with the 3 other couples at our table. The ship was in great shape and we had upgraded to a full suite which was a wonderful experience. The food at the Crown Grill was fantastic. The food at the traditional dining was good, but the beef was not as tender as it has been on past cruises. Entertainment and activities were very good, especially the audience participation activities. The excursion packages were good - the one negative was that 3 days in a row the excursion ended at a time that did not allow us to eat at the early sitting of traditional dining. This could be fixed by either starting the excursion earlier or reducing the free time on the excursion. When you book the excursion prior to the cruise you do not have the times. We spent 3 days in Barcelona before getting on the ship - this was a great idea. We were well rested and in the right time zone before we embarked. This was our 5th Princess cruise and they are the best big ship cruise line in my opinion, especially for adults. Read Less

Chose this cruise as it visited the Greek islands and started and ended in my favorite cities in Europe of Barcelona and Rome Food was very good and better in taste than the newer and much larger Royal Princess that I was on year before The ship never felt crowded and actually thought it wasn't full until I saw it was sold out. Never wait for anything, buffet was small and limited compared to bigger ships but the quality was good and service excellent in buffet, dining room or the specialty restaurants. The Italian was my favorite and it was a very intimate experience as the big dining room wasn't that full at all and same with the steakhouse Movie under the stars with blankets, cushions and popcorn was great. Rooms doesn't have movies on demand like the newer ships but had movie channels I liked the star talk for narrated star gazing as well Room was fine, had a balcony cabin and good size except for the washroom and small shower stall with a curtain that sticks to you International cafe was my favorite place on ship for good snacks, drinks and quick bite for breakfast before going on shore or after coming back Excellent cruise and princess has the whole relaxation experience polished and much better experience than the new mega ships that's always a wait, crowded and qualify suffers One complaint is that the gym had low ceilings and I couldn't go on the treadmill as I bumped my head ..I'm 6'2, gym was on small size but was never crowded and they had cold wet towels and dry towels Read Less
