This cruise was a trip of a lifetime for us, so we were very excited, having never been to Europe. W e felt a cruise was a good way to see different places, but still have the comforts of home. The entertainment was terrible, bands that wouldn't make it at a high school dance, a mime that was suppose to be funny, and a redundant lounge act. It was clear that money wasn't spent on entertainment, staff was used often to entertain.

Dining was hit and miss, there were nights when the food was quite good, and sometimes lacking. We had purchased the beverage package, and found it difficult to get wine and drinks. On past cruises i found that the shampoo and body wash was very nice, so I didnt pack any (big mistake) what was provided was watery detergent. I probably won't chose Princess again, things have deteriorated, and they nickel and dime you to death. AVOID THE BUFFET.

Cabin was a bit dated, but clean and comfortable. Miguel kept it clean and did a great job.
