There was a delay with immigration boarding, but overall the arrival and departure was fine. We stayed on the Deck 10 cabin 317 on arrival we noticed a horrible smell in the cabin musty a bit like grease from kitchens poor ventilation u could smell it from outside our cabin the rest of the corridor was fine. We talked to the steward immediately who was very nice and he said he would report it, he changed our shower curtin, no improvement ,Over the next few days we reported in person to the concierge desk, By leaving the balcony door open this helped with the smell but it was an Alaskan cruise so not ideal obviously a few days later after returning from an excursion we called down and spoke with guest services who promised to send someone to our cabin alas we are still waiting. The cabin decor was old and dated. For the comfort of future guests I would urge you to investigate and sort the problem which really spoiled our holiday The food in the main restaurant and specialty restaurants was good with service there much better The guests we met at dinner was lovely as was the excursions, however I would be very reluctant to cruise with Princess again overall staff service was average and the cabin was dreadful

Disappointing decor; old and dated
