Family member chose it. Beautiful ship, difficult to navigate inside at times, partly because not all of the elevators serviced all floors. Lovely decor, very clean, great staff -- so helpful and friendly. Attended 2 wine tastings: in both, it was difficult to understand the presenters because of their accents. Wines were only O.K. Communication both on and off the ship was limited. Could not communicate well with family if we were not both in our rooms. Internet time was expensive and hard to use on my own. Internet Cafe manager was VERY helpful. Most irritating was the shopping experience: very high-pressure salespeople and much emphasis on "Buy, buy, buy." Embarkation and disembarkation were very impressive for a ship with such a large passenger number: timely, informative efficient. Dining was an excellent experience always. Kudos to the chefs and the menus and the wait staff -- we were very impressed and appreciative. The Princess Patter was helpful and informative.

Cabin Review

Oceanview
Cabin OE E 711
Size and appearance were very good. The shower was small and controls were hard to turn and regulate.

Excellent cabin service!
