We haven't used Princess Cruises before and never will again. We have had fantastic cruises with Royal Caribbean, Fred Olsen and Celebrity and we were expecting this to be equally as good if not better. The food and dining service were abysmal, as was the entertainment, everything else was mediocre. The only upside was the lovely cabin steward, Babush, whom we had, he couldn't be faulted. Disembarkation was terrible, OK the weather was partly to blame, but if the ship had left Gibraltar when expected we should still have been back on time. The other main problem was to do with the itinerary, We arrived in Genoa on a Sunday and Marseilles on a Bank Holiday Monday and of course everything was closed on both of these days!! With all the days spent at sea I, and many others who were aboard agree, think that this could have been arranged better. I really don't expect Princess to take any notice of this review as their surveys don't seem to have any effect

Why we will never use Princess again
