Why can't their be an area that is not focused on alcohol. What ever happened to family dance night where there is no bar or alcohol involved. As a family we love all activities. We paid for the gold tickets for the adventure park and our children couldn't use their tickets because the adventure park office didn't open until the third day of cruising. We have one adult daughter, three teenaged youth and one under 12 child. We don't drink neither do our children. We participated in all the dress up parties but they were overcrowded. If you had children you had to sit it out because they couldn't come join in the fun it's not appropriate to have alcohol around them. Every floor had a bar and the cruise parties were alcohol focused and we didn't want our son or youth around that. We took our son up to the children's den and there was nothing up their for him to do. Overall, the food, staff and accommodation was good but it would have been perfect if there were options for non-alcohol drinking adults and there adult children. We wanted to listen to the comedy but that was in the bar. We wanted to watch a family movie but there was bingo in the auditorium. Disappointed with not enough options for families. We went swimming after breakfast and guess what everyone is drinking alcohol. Went to spend time in the spa pool, well they were drinking their too. My son wants to cruise again soon, but the alcohol focus is a turn off for me. Our bathroom had built in dirt in the hand basin. Two adults in our group complained about hitting their head on the upper bunk bed. No towels for the swimming area. Including myself. Read Less

In general the cruise itself is fine. We all enjoyed it. Only on one ocasion during lunch at the Horizon that I found lipstick on my coffee cup. The staff immediately replace one for me.While I was having the cooked cabbage, I chewed a piece of plastic about 2x2 inches. I reported to the staff and he sent his supervisor to me to apologize. The next day somebody called me from the office and apologize again. However there wasn't any compensation at all. I think this is a major problem especially when we had the norovirus. We had an inside cabin. It was small but functional with lots of storage space. However the bed is not high enough to store our suitcases underneath. Service was hit and miss. Most of the dinning staff are good. We seldom see our cabin attendant though. In my opinion food was good but lack of variety especially the Horizon court. We did not join any ship's excursion, we DIY. Noumea was disappointing, expensive and not much to see. Embarkation and disembarkation was quite efficient. We have been to 10plus cruises and Princess is a step under Celebrity and HAL. Unless Princess have a good deal we will stay with Celebrity Read Less
