Have done tens of long European cruises with Princess in the past and this one has me rethinking in the future. The ship was shiny and new which was great.

Problem is that allot of the choices in building make this a ship to avoid. We did a Mediterranean cruise and given this ship was created for the Asian market there were allot of Asian people on board. I mention this because it didn't seem as if allot of the items geared towards the Asian people were even being used by the Asians much less anyone else. Karaoke rooms cost an extra fee to use them and yet I never saw one person in any of the Karaoke rooms the entire cruise. A conservatory takes up a large portion of the ship and is billed as a meditation space, the only people I saw in here all cruse were about 5 Brits watching a soccer game. High End Duty free shopping also takes a large amount of space. Most people under the age of 60 have access to the the internet and now these shops had hardly any customers. The most crowded they got was when the ships staff had a private event to buy g-shock watches.

The dancing at night is held in the indoor pool area. Nothing like sipping on few drinks with the smell of chlorine permeating the air. Its as if the local YMCA had a dance. The rest of the entertainment was nothing to write home about either. Typically below the standards of a theme park. The pool at the back no longer exists and instead an odd outdoor workout area is there. Never saw anyone use it.

Clean with decent size balcony. The beds were very comfortable.

Port Reviews

Athens (Piraeus)

I feel Athens is a great place to spend a day to see the Acropolis, Changing of the Guards, The Acropolis Museum and Archaeological museum and move on.

Santorini

Touristy but on of the most beautiful place on earth.

Kotor

Beautiful and with an interesting old town.
