Sadly the cabin crucified the experience. Wanted to experience Princess from Southampton and will probably revert to fly cruise to catch the more modern ships. Found the entertainment below par compared to the Regal. Service was very good about 95% of the time. The captains circle rep clearly found elderly female passengers difficult to deal with. He was so rude that I actually found myself complaining on behalf of someone else as she did not see the ceiling gaze and eye roll that she was treated too once her back was turned.

Food was brilliant. Wifi and in room electronic entertainment is a bit last century. Lack of production shows made me think the entertainment budget is held by the larger ships. Explorers lounge frequently unable to cope with seating in the evening.

Ship was full and really felt it.

Premium Suite with Balcony

Cabin S5

Don't use this cabin. The treadmills of the gym (24 of them) are above your head. No sound insulation. Imagine living inside a drum, that is the nightmare reality of this room. Even the lampshade on the side table vibrates when the treadmills are used. The cabin ruined the overall experience. Apparently there is nothing they can do about it!
