Lovely ship - International Piazza and Alfredo's Pizza superb. Cabin very good and clean - thankfully larger balcony than Britannia. Staff in restaurants etc very helpful and friendly. Good cabin steward. Food in restaurant was ok - no cheese or biscuits selection - cost cutting! Service was excellent - waiters very friendly and efficient. The dress code in dining room for dinner was not apparent - as some males wore caps and a few other passenger - shorts. Entertainment was very good and most enjoyable. Quizzes were good but sadly, on sea days, there were no lectures which would have been appreciated by passengers. Overall a lovely ship but cost cutting was obvious.

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin ME R222
Good clean cabin - however, why Princess choose not to supply a shower cap and/or slippers is a mystery. Surely this is taking economy too far. No water in fridge until requested.
