Now that I got that off my chest let me give you some thoughts on the cruise and ship. Overall I liked the ship and the changes I saw. The food was great , the buffett was great, and I loved the Crown Grill. At Sabatine's ? it took us 3 1/2 hrs. to eat but the food was O.K. . The pizza was good as always and the public rooms were good. Never had a problem at the pool area's getting lounges or the area we wanted. I do miss the pool on the back but they are going to change that in first drydock . I felt that it is still a little to quiet around the pool during the days. They still do not have enough going on at the pool during sea days for us. I loved the track and used it every day. A great way of doing working out if that your thing?
Now for my cabin. I tought it was will layed out as compared to other Princess cabins that I have had. I have been in regular balconys to mini-suites. I had a regular balcony on this cruise. I loved the batroom and the larger shower . Plenty of storage for clothes and personal items. The best part was the 36" T.V. mounted in front of the bed. It offered over 25 to 30 different programs and movies. It was the highlite of the cabin for us. I did not mind the smaller balcony since is use it just to view the ocean. The only issue we had was the air flow at times was a problem in the cabin. I had heard from other people that they had the same problem. I did not have a problem with the toilet paper holder like people have been blogginh about . Life is to short to worry about things like that!
I got around the ship with not much real problem and the elevators sometimes work real strange but every ship I have been on has that issue most of the time. My wife and I bought the "Enclave" for the week and it was worth every dollar to us! They did a great job on that new area.
There were many other things I liked about the ship but it's getting late and I am sure you have read many different trains of throught . In closing I would say that Princess has to work on the boarding procedure and the on-line site like RCCL and others. I would go again on another Princess cruise but I hate to think of dealing with those two issues right now! Overall I had a good time but not enough of it ! Less
