Where do I start ! cruised with my Husband and Mum, we are both 40 years and Mum is in her late 60's.

This ship is suited to British curry eaters who don't like music from the twentieth century and a night out at the Globe nightclub involves doing the foxtrot and waltz. This ship is designed for anyone over the age of 85 years and was too boring for even my Mum, The entertainment (there wasn't much of any) was aimed at the elderly, no up to date music was played and when requested for by the DJ we were told the older passengers wouldn't like it. Oh the TV in the cabin was terrible, no variety at all and the same shows/movies played over and over again.

Mum and I have been on 3 other cruises with Princess and never experienced the amount of rudeness, smashing and clanging of dishes and cutlery from staff at the Belvedere restaurant ever ! They seemed to be unsupervised and under trained. Food was terrible in all restaurants, doesn't hold a candle to Princess either, its fine if you like Curry/Indian style food, too bad if you don't you're left to eat snacks at midnight and cakes/desserts left overs from the night's dinner, The bread baked on the ship was the worst we've ever had, not one crunchy roll/loaf in site, even used a sweet dinner roll as part of a cream bun for the late night snacks.

Cabin Review

Cabin was nice and clean and spacious.
