This was our second Princess cruise, and our first cruise longer than 3 weeks. We stayed in a balcony cabin. We usually cruise Celebrity and Oceania.
Embarkation: probably, no absolutely the worst embarkation we have ever experienced. Ever. Signs not clear, "line" attendants rude. Inside, we of course picked the wrong line, and wondered in amazement how the other lines moved so quickly. Plenty of time to "guess" what the problem was -- and it was not the passengers in front of us. A completely "clueless" person checking in -- I would guess she asked for help 3-4 times from someone near her station. She had an "ahah" moment, when someone asked her if she was checking Brazilian passports -- and she said, "oh, was I supposed to do that?" Anyway, the guy in charge of embarkation after that point was good -- and we boarded. --
Cabin: plenty of storage, even tho we were on a long trip. Beds adequate, and we liked the pillows. lots of wear on the furnishings -- room decor needs updating -- Steward was OK, I don't know if he wasn't well, but he seemed a little upset during our trip.
