Well designed ship, but poor quality of finishing especially in the steel fabrication/welding, carpeting and tiling in the washrooms. Entertainment - Excellent, including the Princess Productions Shows, Guest Entertainers and the onboard cruise staff. Great selection of activities throughout the day and themed nights in the evening. Cruise staff were brilliant. Food - Quality and presentation is excellent, but the service in the dining rooms does not meet the standards of prior years. Even in the Horizon Court the food is always fresh and warm. Breakfast in the restaurant was not a satisfactory venture. Cabins - Cabin steward was excellent, she worked around our schedule and anticipated our every need. Balcony was rather small and had no privacy. Smoking Policy - Biggest detriment to the cruise. As a non-smoker found the alleyway from the Casino to Explorers Lounge constantly polluted. In Explorers Lounge no seat in the lounge is completely free from the pollution. Photo Department - Extremely poor. Photographs not correctly posed and were unable to download and burn photographs to a CD. Poor customer service at the desk. Bars - Good selection with the notable exception being the aft decks. No bar aft serving the sports deck or aft pool. Computers at Sea - Great program, spent a few lessons learning Photoshop Elements, which has been put to great use since returning home.
