Chose this cruise because of the ports, but the ports were the weak link. Too many ports, and most needed either ten?der boats, or a shuttle imto town, or a long bus or train ride to the city advertised as the “port”. Crowd comtrol to get off the ship was poor.. If you were not on a Princess tour, it could take up to 2hours wait in the dining room to get off. Nothing offered , not even water while you waited. The dining room food was good some nights, just ok others. Buffet was actually better for some meals. The specialty restaurants were very good. Internet service too expensive, too slow. Shows were pretty good, but you had to be in the theater 30 minutes early to get a seat. It was a nice vacation, but not as good as other Peincess cruises we had been on. Embarkation took 2 hours. Disembark was smooth.
