My wife and I have traveled on Princess for three previous cruises. I have always been happy with the ship and its ports of call. The staff is always there when needed with a smile and greeting.

With today's economy and fuel prices I understand the need to look at where excess spending can be reviewed. I am sorry to say the the quality of the food has diminished. The procurement of meat products is not up to previous cruises. The main dining room quality caused numerous individuals at every night sitting to return the food. We sat at a table for eight. The beef and lamb dishes were tough and the Beef Wellington was unable to cut.

My wife and another party decided to eat at the specialty restaurants. The Crown was fantastic. Sabatini's was the worst italian food I have ever ate. Two of us ordered the Veal Chop and sent it back it was so tough.

Cabin Review

Suite was very good and 5 stars to the Steward.
