Repetitive Food and Poor Entertainment

The repositioning cruise was chosen because it seemed to be well priced and was a nice way of returning to Australia. The ports were an annoying interlude between the sea days. No bridge Director on board yet ...

PRINCESS CRUISES HAS TOTALLY LOST US AS A CUSTOMER!

Quantity doesn't equal quality.

Although we were on the 30 day portion of this cruise there were a number of disorganized or poorly administered issues that prevented this from being a home-run. Most notably among the administration issues was the ...
