I chose this cruise because of the itinerary. The only good thing about the cruise. Trips off the ship were far too expensive. One trip Princess was charging 149 US Dollars and it was done locally for 52 US Dollars. A rather large profit for Princess! The times of arrival and departure in port was changed from that on itinerary so lost time in some of the ports. Food in food court on deck 16 was awful. Dining room food was ok. I was expecting better. Service in dining room was a bit haphazard. Entertainment was poor in the theatre. The 3 comedians told the same joke only slightly different which I had heard more than twenty years ago. The rest of the entertainment could have been better. I found the ship overall was a bit dated and in need of refurbishing. Some areas were rather shabby. Leather seating in nightclub very worn. Will use a different cruise line next time I want to cruise.

Too pricey

Ok cabin. Bed not very comfortable. Cabin staff excellent. Could also do with modernising.
