Cabin: Balcony

Great ports. Princess tours were much better than usual. We also used Shore Tours for most of our private tours. Nigel coordinated tours in 5 ports. Highly recommend the company.

Food on cruise was odd. Minimal beef at dinner. Numerous dinners were mainly fish and vegetarian, with no beef even on daily menu. Same hamburger for every dinner. No cheesecake on everyday menu or pasta alfredo on daily menu. Said the menu was more typical of New Zealand food.

Wonderful itinerary. Much to do in every port.

Cabin Review


Cabin B1

Toilet was always hot. Hot gasses coming out of toilet and toilet seat was always wet, probably from the heat. No cold water at sink, only warm to hot. No sodas to be purchased in room frig as is most cruises.

New very comfortable bed

First time we had a premium balcony. Extra space was great and loved the larger, higher table. I don't know why it isn't on all balconies.
