Not As Bad As Some Others Have Written; Yet, Not The Best Cruise
1) We missed a port because of high winds - Princess did nothing for the passengers (either monetarily or some type of acknowledgement - other than "sorry".
2) The longer you stay on the ship the more frustrated you get with Princess "nickel and diming" you. More You go to one restaurant and order tea and there is no charge - go to another restaurant and they charge $1.59 for the same tea. They charge you for shuttles when other ships would not charge you. They charged for "taxi boats" in Venice whether you planned to get off the ship or not (you had to go to the desk to get a refund.
3) In the fitness center one had to pay to get a bottle of water!
4) Off to see a port - you can buy water from Princess for $2.50
I could go on but the bottom line is that Princess is trying to act like it's a 5* ship but in reality it's a 4* - which isn't bad but if everything were up-front then there would be less criticism. Less
