This is our second 15 day trip to Hawaii on Princess and I must say that the first on 10 years ago outshines this by far in the food area! Not sure what happened here, but everything in this area was sub standard this time around. The crew was phenomenal as usual, not much to add here. They do their very best to make sure you are have what you need/want at all times. Our cabin staff was amazing as usual, and having just come from dry dock, the beds and linens were very nice. I felt that the time on the ship at sea days stretched out to very long days of everyone on board trying to sell us something at every turn. It got wearing at times, gone are the days of the group activities and contest that they used to have on board. If you want to pay for activities and stand in line to hopefully get a ticket to participate, oh and then if they have enough supplies when it is your turn, yeah it is like that. So, not impressed at all, and will not be taking this cruise again ever. We will continue to fly over to the islands and enjoy our time there. One last item that we feel is important to mention, this is a very geriatric set of cruisers. After talking with several crew members this is like this day in and day out. There were several medical emergencies on board, and we even had to turn the ship around on the first evening to have an emergency evacuation of a cruiser. So if you do not have the patience to deal with very slow moving, sometime crabby, older people-this is not the cruise for you. The embarkation and disembarkation was the easiest we have ever had on any cruise we have been on in the last 15 years. Goodbye for now Princess, we will be trying other cruise lines that offer more exciting daily activities as well as newer food options.

Great Itinerary - Great Staff - Food needs help, not enough to do on sea days!

Our cabin had just been refurbished, so it was in good condition. New beds and linens, no complaints.
