Out of Los Angeles, home port. Lots of sea days, but so much to do every day and night. Fantastic entertainment staff. So many unique shows and activities. Food is buffet is like most ships. No variety for breakfasts, Same every day. Only one serving station for dinner. Great ports. We only took private tours, so can’t judge princess tours. Had an act facing room. Our balcony was very small, but loved it. Balcony is like a box, so almost no direct sunshine so you could use it almost all the time even in annul heat and humidity of South Pacific. Lounge acts were very good. They had an Irish singer, Cathay Mulhern who was excellent. One night he did Irish drinking songs in Club Fusion. Very well received. Had an Irish pub show, yesteryear show, and a number of other unique shows. Lots of arts and crafts such as lei making, charge for this, plus fee crafts. Knit and knatter was listed daily in latter and had a good turn out. Pickle ball was also in patter daily. Main dining room had good variety. Since it was a 28 day cruise, most menus were repeated once. 28 day cruise, so most were seniors and some very elderly. Lots of walkers and scooters. Would. To recommend this for kids Embarkation was awful due to Customer. Many did not get on to the ship until almost 5:00 PM

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BF B752
Aft cabin. One of the smallest with a large partition. Princess had warned me. Balcony was like a box, so it was always shady. VERY private. Other cruises could ion,y see in if they looked over the railing of an adjoining cabin. Was noisier than many other cabins due to the wake, but the view made up for any shortcomings. We were offered a move up from outside obstructed for $700. Don’t know if I would have paid the regular price. Very noisy going into Los Angeles.
