We are frequent cruisers & chose this sailing for the unusual itinerary and # of days.
The ship is gorgeous, very much like the Royal Princess that we had sailed on previously.
The Anytime dining service was the very best we have ever had on a ship, & this was our 51st cruise. We asked for the same table every evening & they were happy to get us in the same area every time that we went to the dining room.
The embarkation & disembarkation were smooth, and our luggage was in the cabin when we arrived, maybe 10-15 minutes to get on board. When we got off the ship in Singapore we were thru immigration in less than 5 minutes.
We went to a few of the shows, & most were good, especially enjoyed "ROLLER BOYS".
The buffet area tends to be a little over-crowded, seems like a lot of people just go there to sit & chat or play cards, or whatever, so sometimes hard to find a table.
The shore excursions were outstanding. We took a 3 day excursion from Cochin, India to the TAJ MAHAL, & it was terrific. A true once in a lifetime experience. Did an evening desert safari in Dubai & it included a camel ride which was great fun. I would recommend that to anyone. We had been thru the Panama Canal on a cruise, but sailing thru the Suez was quite different, it looked more like a small river. Egypt was on either side of the ship so it was very interesting. Extreme heat in Petra, but still worth every minute!!!
All in all, it was an amazing trip, loved every minute of it.
I love the closet space on the Princess ships!! bathroom is a little tight but it works.
I prefer the larger mini-suite, especially on a longer cruise. Stateroom attendant was a little
disappointing. All in all, we were very happy with the cabin.
went to the BORBONIC tunnels, it was interesting.
