Additional details

Sail Date: May 2015
Cabin: Balcony

I have travelled with Princess for 30 years often defending and promoting this company as times & cruise expectations have evolved & changed.

I booked a 2 week cruise from Istanbul to Barcelona. I received 2 one week cruises with food, entertainment, in-room entertainment and public announcements duplicated from one week to the next. Different ports of call but the exact same onboard mediocracy. Oh, and noro-virus (the ship went to 'RED' status).

The ship is in rough condition with mold and mildew growing around the whirlpools, elevators not functioning, decor pealing, burned out lights and an "EFFY Store."
