This was our 30th cruise on Princess and the worst we’ve been on.☹️ The itinerary was 60 days round trip from LA to Asia. The ship itself was poor. On the embarkation day there were fewer than 50 books in the library! Not acceptable! The entertainment director told me it was because people hadn’t returned the books. That is not true. There were none to begin with. The food was relatively boring-lots of stews from the previous day’s meats. Fish dishes were not specifically named as on other princess ships. Few production shows on the first half of the trip-2 in 25 days. Some type of MAJOR problem led us to remain in Yokohama harbor for 24 hours and then go back to the terminal to refuel causing us to miss Osaka. Comments and requests made to entertainment director unanswered after several written requests. The fire head sprinkler sprayed after a testing and continued to drip the rest of the cruise leaving a wet carpet. A note from from the previous people stated it had happened to them as well. 60 days of dripping with no fix! We got truffles as an apology. The dining rooms were poorly managed-sometimes a 30 minute wait with many empty tables. When my husband mentioned it to the maitre dee, he replied with “I’m the manager” The disembarkation for the tours were disorganized and inefficient. Several of the tours were expensive-$200 each to the Great Wall with a tour guide that told us nothing about the wall-she had never heard of the Yangtze River! Comments made to the tour desk were never answered. The room television is very antiquated-looping movies and repetitive TV show. 4 and 5 times of the same. We did likeMiranda the cruise director and Sarah the orchestra manager. Sarah is so talented and really gets into the music! Reymond our room steward was terrific. The one that took over-not so much. We will never cruise on Coral Princess again-no matter why the itinerary is.

Disappointing
