Great itinerary, Unfortunately, bad weather kept us from stopping at 2 ports. It appears as if there is NO heating on board. Cabins and public areas were below 70 (and sometimes even in the 50'S). Complaints to the staff elicited sympathy but no relief. Stop In NY was shorter than others. A pity, since there was more to do and the ship was docked in Brooklyn! The piazza was nice and there was continuous entertainment there in the evenings. Enjoyed the buffet more than the main dining room. Better selection, but as with most buffets, everything was not hot enough. However, the same problem existed in the main dining area. Unfortunate, considering the weather and the temperature in the ship, HOT soup would have been quite enjoyable! Except for our Cabin Steward, the level of service was up to Princess's usual high level. Our cabin was smaller than other Princess ships we have cruised on. We were told that there were several classes of balcony cabins nad ours was among the smaller (although it was located midship).

Froze! Ship should never have been sent to Canada!
