My husband and I really enjoyed our 12 night cruise of the British Isles. The staff on the ship were great and service at the dining rooms was impecable. I was surprised to see sinks outside the buffet for washing hands instead of Purell stands but evidentally cruisers requested sinks. There WERE Purell stands at the dining rooms (not buffet that I saw). On that note, I didn't see many people using the sinks to wash their hands. On a former cruise and different ship line, a staff member stood at the entrance to the buffet and hand squirted Purell on everyone's hands before entering the dining areas. I thought this was a great idea. Some people must have gotten sick on the cruise because in LHR and again in Detroit we were asked if we sailed on Princess and whether we had been quarantined. In Detroit CDC met us and took our temperatures and asked if we wanted medical care. I simply had a cold. I'm not blaming Princess at all. I am very disappointed in cruisers who don't think enough of others to sanitize their hands before touching serving implements. How unthoughtful.

Great cruise
