bad mistake old ship poor condition poor service uncaring front desk staff poor food quality, choice, preparation,presentation and variety service inadequate help embarking and disembarking poor itinerary poor selection of ports poor judgement of sunday arrivals when everything in the port is closed docked beside HOLLAND america in several ports whose officers were on the dock to meet returning guests, princess had none, HOLLAND america had attendants to meet returning guests as they returned to the ship walking up to them with cold towels and fruit drinks in glasses on trays, princess had cold water in paper cups and towels that you had to look for. Other than production shows which were great poor entertainment poor timing of Captains parties which usually occurred during our super hour poor cruise directors, lack of knowledge, poor approach not at all helpful unapproachable operating officers over priced shore excursions and unhelpful shore excursion staff unhelpful Captains Circle representative. A good ship to stay off
