Excellent cruise. Biggest ship so far, all worries unfounded. Did not feel you were on a ship with so many other passengers. Queues for embarkation only, lots of staff, queues moving all the time. Cabin excellent, balcony, very good size, dressing room with full length mirror outside bathroom, plenty of storage space. Bathroom and shower excellent, perfect size. Power shower. All staff fantastic, genuinely customer oriented, friendly and all willing to go the extra mile without appearing to do so. Damkerng our cabin steward was so professional and considerate to our needs as were our waiters, Gerry and Jeffreyboy, professional in a relaxed and friendly manner. Excursions good however very easy to do your own thing, hop on hop off buses in most locations, do your research before you go. Shuttle service in most locations too, fee to pay and bookable on board in advance. Entertainment very good however we found a couple of the shows rather hit and miss, the show team slightly disjointed and disappointing. Comedians not the best, very old jokes and not geared up for International audience. Guest singers outstanding, as was the violinist. Russian folkloric band, outstanding. Food was delicious and the choice was very broad. Entertainment around the ship was excellent, Karolina, Kimmy, Marvin and Ashleigh all worked very hard and again it appeared to be effortless. The band were incredible, so nice to have a live band for the shows. All other entertainment, singers, groups, musicians were first class. Drinks were quite expensive which was a downside, 15 per cent added on to all drinks, there were a couple of happy hours, early afternoon and 11pm so you could save at those times however it didn't always fit in with our schedule. Movies under the stars was great with popcorn and blankets. Lectures with Professor from Ireland were excellent. Met some lovely people from all corners of the globe which is why we'll be cruising with Princess next holiday. Disembarkation was very quick and easy, a lot smoother than envisaged. I hope this review has been of help to you.

Best cruise so far. 15 to date.
