Boy, what disappointment.

We have sailed many, many times on Princess, as well as a few time each on Royal Caribbean and Carnival and once on Holland America. We have always preferred Princess because between these 4 lines, their food was always vastly superior, but no more.

The food in the dining room was poor at best. The menu choices were lacking, the service not attentive. Many of the passengers were saying the same thing. We sailed with Princess a little more than a year ago and the food portions had gotten noticeably smaller and while the quality was not quite what it used to be, it was still more than adequate. Now it seems that the portions are back to the old, bigger size, but the quality of the ingredients is much lower. The general consensus was that the food on this ship is no better than Royal Caribbean, Holland America or Carnival.
