Cabin:

This was our first experience on Princess Lines. We had a mini suite which was wonderful for the two of us. We had a set dinning time and although the staff was attentive, the menu was tired. Not much variety. The buffet was okay but none of the old favorites like Eggs Benedict. They would not toast a fresh English muffin so I had to have cold ones. They ran out of hash browns the first few days, replaced by French fries ( for breakfast? ) There was a lot of space and we never had to look for a place to sit.

The bars were nice and in Crooners and the Wheelhouse, the bartenders were excellent......knew our names and our drinks right away.... the other bars...not so friendly.

The stores were HoHum as were the sales people. I got the impression a lot of the employees did not like their jobs. There was sometimes bickering between waiters in the buffet seating area. The hamburger bar, ice cream bar, and coffee house people never smiled and acted like we were bothering them!

Cabin Review

Large bathroom with a full tub, large room but needs some separation because both TV's cancel each other out. LOTS of storage! Remember the verandas on this deck have no cover so not only are you exposed to the weather but to all other verandahs above you. If I were going to a warm place, I would invest in a large umbrella to put up when using the verandah.
