  • Sail Date: Sep 2016
  • Destination: Asia
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

I choose this cruise because of the places it visited.

The embarkation process was totally shambolic-despite of having done as much online as possible,it counted for nothing,just sat about with little information for 3 hours.- then told the cabin was not ready.

The ship is very tired in decor & comfort.Totally aimed at the Japanese in all food areas,portions are tiny,staff in formal dining-room seemed shocked when we dared to ask for extra desserts.

This was our 1st Princess Cruise & we were expecting better-balcony cabin small,no extra blankets/pillows,shower cubicle minute.

Bar areas were not inviting,some even grubby.

Entertainment very average.Same shows & menus on 2nd week.

Ship ran out of English Breakfast & Liptons tea then porridge after 1st week..

Nothing offered as daytime entertainment on bad weather days..

If this is the best Princess Cruises offers,stick to Celebrity/P & O/Cunard.!

This ship urgently needs a refit,& a rethink by Princess
