Sail Date: Mar 2018
Cabin: Oceanview (obstructed view)

This is our third and last cruise with Princess. The cutbacks in entertainment and previous offerings were felt by not only us but many other passengers we spoke too. No happy hour. Entertainment was of a lower standard. 22 days and no pool barbecue. Over 2500 people and only 2 shows in the princess theatre each nighy. So many people missed out. You had to be at the theatre by 7.00pm for a 7.30pm show to get a seat. Difficult if dining at 5.30pm. The entrainment was of a poorer quality and insufficient for the number of passengers. We lost our TV for over 3 days over the cruise at different times due to technical issues (we were credited $50). Also had delayed flush with the toilet. The saving grace was the food in the dining room was very good and our waiters wete excellent. We will be sailing Royal Caribbean next time.
