Chose this cruise for the port destinations.The cabin we selected was excellent. However that was about the limit of anything good on the ship. Food was average, our experience in the restaurant was poor. So we went up to the buffet, which was marginally better. Some crew were fantastic others were new and needed further training. The management and officers were poor and you could tell by the poor organising of activities on board and the many errors in menu selection, program activities etc that the staff appeared tired and needed refreshing . This mainly applies to officers and management. The entertainment was very poor. The shows that were on were very low in quality and many people walked out during performances on many occasions. We have always had a pleasurable experience on Princess in the past, Diamond and Sapphire Princess, but this time they really dropped the bundle. We might as a result never choose Princess again.
