This ship was completely unprepared for this repositioning cruise from Shanghai to Sydney. The service in the dining room was the slowest and most incompetant Ive ever experienced. We had anytime dining, which should have been called queue up and wait a long time. When we finally got a table we mostly got only one waiter for a table for 8. A waiter who seemed to be inadaquately trained or was in training. This happened time and again. It was not until after Singapore that things got a little better as a lot of new crew members got on. The shows in the theatre were good IF you managed to get in at least 2o minutes early otherwise you just could not get in even though they put on 3 shows a night. The main problem with this cruise was the lack of well trained crew from Shanghai to Singapore. It was disgraceful. We have cruised with Princess many, many times and could never imagine getting an experience like this. Hope that they have sorted out all the problems as it is a lovely ship..
