  3. Sun Princess
First time on the Sun, & while the ship is a smaller, older model it is still very comfortable. Both the cabin & public spaces were clean & bright. Liked the addition of hand washing sinks at the entry to the Horizon Court food bar. Staff as usual were very helpful. Missed the Princess stable "Happy Hour", which was always great value & a good social time. Also the new drinks package is very expensive, we decided against it, not only because of the cost but also because there is a 15 drink limit, which seemed unfair given the cost. Food was alright, not up to the standard we have previously experienced with Princess. Dining room staff were excellent. Embarkation was the usual Princess nightmare! I don't know why they bother to give times to board by deck, only to completely disregard the process. Although I will state that the ship was late into port & embarkation pushed back by 4 hours which obviously didn't help the situation. But still not handled well.

Princess still good
