First time on Princess, not overly impressed. Meals in Santa Fe dining room were average at best. Staff extremely welcoming and great service. Entertainment was average. A lot of activities were carried out in the Atrium which was always over crowded and stairways were blocked.
Diamond Princess is a little dated, but staff are exceptional. Doing a Grand Asia cruise we were expecting great Asian cuisine, but were disappointed.
Worst experience was at the "onboard sale" of merchandise etc. - sale was advertised as " up to 70% off" - sales assistant was cutting off $10.00 price tag in front of me and when asked th price was told $15.00. When this was questioned I was told they sell the item for $10.00 in the Caribbean but $15.00in Asia. I felt this was unethical, especially to do it in front of me!! Obviously little regard is shown for passengers.
We won't be rushing to book another Princess cruise anytime soon. We have sailed with much better operated cruise lines.
Cabin was nice & clean
