This ship is over “hyped”. Overcrowded. Long waits for elevators. Forget trying to get anytime dining-it’s a joke. They don’t tell you all threes dining room are traditional “assigned “ so none open to anytime dining until after 7:30 at least. Half the fresh market buffet is already closed by then and what was still out was barely warm. So not impressed at all with this ship. Can’t wait until we have to fight for lounge chairs near the pools and seats at the theater. They close venues such as the vista lounge to accommodate large private parties forcing everyone else to find somewhere else to hang out. It’s not right. Many items were not brought to the cabins until late such as minibar setups, soda packages, robes. They are probably short staffed such as only one guy working in the Internet cafe all day. My cabin steward has 19 cabins to take care of. The same personnel were at passenger services all day. I think this is way below princess standards and this is only day one for me. Its embarrassing as I invited 4 other people on this cruise Read Less

We have been on close to 30 cruises, most on Princess. I was so excited about this cruise; I chose it for the ship, not the itinerary. It was so underwhelming and many shared our feelings. It's similar to the Regal & Royal but they are better. I must say Captain Tuvo was among the best. He was always being seen and had a great sense of humor. Our cruise director was also alot of fun as was the comedian. We had one production show and it was excellent but it seems we were cheated on the entertainment. The thing that totally amazed most people was no library. if you want a book, you go to guest services and get to pick from books left by passengers. The claim is people steal the books and Princess decided enough, I guess. As for dining, we have always had traditional seating but got stuck with my time dining. I'm not a fan because sitting with the same people and having the same waiters makes for a pleasant dining experience. Unlike Royal Carribbean, you cannot book the same table and time for every nite. You have to reserve each day and that means waiting on the phone and speaking to someone with poor english or arriving at 5:00. As for the food, the beef was excellent and the rest a matter of taste. Let me say the elevators are the worse! they will pass your floor several times, once when we were in it. And if that isn't annoying enough, when one finally stops, the rude people inside make no effort to make room; in fact, more than once I saw someone push the button to close the doors. Trust me, I can see when there is room. My husband and I both used a cane noone cared. I think with so many elevators, Princess should dedicate one to wheelchairs and walkers. I can't imagine how long they waited to get on. That brings me to, anyone who is familiar with Princess knows they mostly have an older crowd. I'd guess 60 - 80 years average. Children are rare. Princess could do more to accommodate the handicapped. For example, You won't find anything on their website telling you how to reserve a wheelchair for embarkation. I waited 45 min on the phone to reserve 2 chairs and the girl gave me the wrong info. Finally, our cabin. It looks exactly like the pictures. we had an obstructed balcony which wasn't all that obstructed. I love the closets on Princess as they are open and large. Plenty of room for clothes and luggage. The shower was larger than most with a ledge! The tv is on the wall and large. We had a phenomenal steward in Santhosh. First thing I always request is removal of the duvet and a blanket and sheet instead. And ice. He was most pleasant in accommodating any requests. One thing most people noticed was this ship is a bit noisy as in squeaks, etc. I should add, everyone working this ship is friendly and always smiling. Overall, this cruise wasn't cheap and if I had to recommend it, I'd say take the Royal or Regal instead. Read Less

An absolutely terrible experience. Firstly, I did a lot of research to choose the right first cruise for myself and my husband. We tried the Sky Princess because it was a new ship and it seemed to provide what we were looking for. What did we know?! It was our first cruise. We bought the premium drinks package which cost us £800+ for 7 days and yet this did not include the basic drinks like a slimline tonic or water in our room. We were charged 9$ for drinking a bottle of water left in our cabin with no label. We did not ask for this, it appeared and then appeared on our bill. When asked for slimline tonic, we were told this was not included but rather we could get tonic from the bar tap which was not diet. Very disappointing. The food was diabolical. It catered for only Americans, it also had no spice and tasted bland. The market place buffet had very poor quality food and the food was also cold or luke warm. This area was crowded, disorganized and univiting. We also booked a meal in the Crown grill. I had to send my steak back as it was served blue rare after I asked for it to be medium. They took it back and cooked it further and re cooked the fries and returned them to the plate. The steak was very fatty, the fries were inedible. We left the restaurant very unsatisfied. A lot of pompus ceremony only to be disappointed. We opted for anytime dining which produced mass pre cooked food with very little flavour and dry. Bread is placed on all tables sometime before the restaurant is open and so it is cold and hard. The service in this anytime dinning was terrible too, particularly the Ciello restaurant. The waiters had absolutely no pride in their job. They were forgetful and focused only on hovering around those tipping. Do not go on this cruise for entertainment unless you are in to line dancing and listening to string cortet. I am 54 years old and my husband is 47. We were totally bored. The majority of people on this cruise were 80. There were Zimmer frames everywhere. Not the cruise for us. We found out about the basketball ball court where we could shoot some balls in the net and also a mini golf area on the penultimate day of our cruise. These areas were at the top of the ship on level 18 and they were not advertised. The ship was crowded and those who were slightly younger (60-65) liked the sound of their voices so much they added to the terrible experience. Of course these were Americans. Our favourite part was getting off the ship 3 times during our cruise. The rest of the time was awful. We purposely did not pay for tips ahead of our cruise as we decided we wanted to tip those who deserved it. Our room attendant was very good. That's were it stopped. Maybe we received terrible service because the waiters knew we had removed the tips. We started tipping everyone but soon stopped this. We don't believe in being responsible for topping up peoples salaries for the sake of it. The elevators on this ship are terrible. They are on either end of the ship and you will find you have to wait quite some time for the lift to arrive on your floor. We were on level 17. We ended up walking most of the time. I could go on but really do not have the energy. This cruise is all about money. We thought our drinks package had it covered. I will finish on positive note. The bed is the most comfortable bed we have slept in. The shower is very powerful and the cabin was acceptable but did not provide tea or coffee facilities. We will not be cruising with Princess again. Read Less
