A big ship designed for small person's

Sail Date: September 2013
Destination: Transatlantic
Embarkation: Barcelona
My wife and I have been cruising with Princess for the last 14 years. We are "Elite".

We paid more money for this cruise, we are both very disappointed of this ship that have been built for small person. We have cancelled two upcoming cruises for the Holidays.

The smimming pool is smaller that the one we have in our backyard! No midship elevator, the balconny are designed for small person, two at the time sit sideway looking at each other. NO GUESS

The buffet is baddly divided where you have to walk a very long distance to get your pastry and with luck your table might still be available upon returning.

The toilet paper in you cabin bathroom is behind you and very hard to reach!

The skywalk is worthlees after you look at it once...it is over! And is giving you a chance to see who is on their bacony and if they are dressed. And what kind of whine they drink "No privacy" And they paid big money for you to look at them! Picture not allow More please!

The center fountain is a joke where that should have make a pool.

The elvators are always full "Without AC" where you have to wait many time two/three or four trip to get in and be ready to have either your spouse or you to get in. "DON'T STEP ON MY FEET IS THE ORDER IN THE ELEVATOR"

The bathrooms on the ship are designed for small person while washing your hands there is no room for someone to walk behind you.


Anytime you meet an oldtime cruiser the conversation start with "WHAT DO YOU THING ABOUT THIS SHIP. Now you have a new friend!

Because of lack of swimming pool, beware for the one who will cruise this winter because there will be no room for the younger cruisers o enjoy the poll.

The children pool is direcly in front of the 16 floor sundeck where older cruisers love to rest and enjoy their cruise, now grandpa and grandpa be ready to listen to these children splashing and have a great fun right in front of you...No more sleeping time!

And don't bring your running shooes because there is no more promenade on the 18th floor...above all go the the rest room before you walk in the morning because there is no rest room available for the walkers on the 18th floors.

Beware wet floor signs are all over the ship, they cause tripping hazard!

If you want to use the stairways while on 16 floors to go to the 17 floor "Sun Deck"

PLEASE walk up or down in Indian line because there is no room for two at the time. They designed the stairways with a small circle that is 1 foot and half narrower than the one that go to the 17 floor where there is no traffic.

Our prediction, those cruise on this ship will sell at big discount in near future.

We will never cruise that ship again!

The Dinning room food and service was excellent and so maid servicing our room. Less
