My wife and I went on this cruise to celebrate our 50th anniversary. The ship was full but not crowded. Our mini suite was very comfortable and our room steward was fantastic. The food was fairly standard and nothing was outstanding. Our waiters could not bring the steaks we ordered as they were ordered three times and we got the Matre D involved. We have had excellent entertainment on all our Caribbean cruises but the entertainment on this cruise "sucked" with 30 minuet and 40 minuet shows. But the most disappointing part was the dissemination of port information. The Patter/ships newspaper did not provide all the information needed to schedule shore activities and the shore information when pre-planning is non existent from Princess Examples Venice going to visit it well the Patter says it will cost $29.00 each for a water taxi round trip or walk NO mention of other methods of getting into town. Going to Rome HAHA a bus to take you to a drop off point where you need to catch another bus to go the train station and it is an hour wait no taxi's will take you. They want Rome trips not local, so we walked 45 minutes to the train station and missed our train and therefore missed our Rome excursion. Thank you Princess for port information. By the way the bus from Princess went right by the train station. MAKE SURE that ALL tours pick you up at the ship.

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony

Cabin MA

Nice and comfortable no cover for balcony and we did not use it except to take photos. The bedding was the best we have had in a cruise.
