Additional details

Sail Date: Sep 2017
Cabin: Window Suite

Always wanted to cross the Atlantic, and very happy we did. Many complained that Princess failed them when they dropped a couple of ports and substituted a couple of others, but we didn't mind - it's all about the ship for us and CB was looking sharp coming out of her major dry dock. We sailed her only a year ago, so the changes were obvious for us.

Most Notable:

Horizon Court is no more. Replaced by "Market Fresh" (or was that "Fresh Market"). What we liked: No more "point and wait" sweet and sandwich area, it's all grab and go now, so much more efficient. The hot food was little changed. The room itself looks far more elegant and tidy, I really liked it. Some have complained that tables are spaced out a bit costing some capacity. Princess seems to have dealt with this by keeping both sides open for seating whether or not food is actually available or not, we never struggled to find a seat, even with our many sea days.

Cabin Review

Window Suite

Cabin S7

We are fans of the Window Suites and have in fact stayed in this very cabin once before. This is a good S7 suite about halfway down the short hallway that all such cabins share. These rooms are however getting a bit dated with a few chips here and there and fixtures that are far from new. Still, we like the large size, really more like a studio apartment than any normal cruise ship cabin.
