Forth time of a Princess. Pros: The cabin was nice. Easy getting on ship First night anytime dining was good. Cons: Reservations at the Crown Grill were worthless, we stood 30 minutes to get a table. The Ribeye was not good, too much fat. No more pepperoni pizza, just margarita. Between going to the SPA, having the drink package and the room gratuity, on some days where were tipping out 60 bucks a day. Got unlimited drink package but unless you parked yourself at the bar in front of the bartender it took at least 20 minutes standing at the bar to get a drink. Wait staff never asked if I wanted a drink. First day buffet (lunch) was a step above a Applebees except they only offered salad, pasta and chicken. Overall day to day meals were just ok. We were not given disembark info on time so we had to deal with our bags and figure out asking random staff where to go to get off the ship. Overall, we got the feeling that the staff has been told "don't help the customers unless they ask you for help". That really made us feel like they didn't care.

Just got back from Cabo and will not be taking Princess again
