We needed to visit our last surviving Aunt in California. So we decided to take a cruise to round-out our vacation. The crew were warm, welcoming, fun and attentive. We had a fun experience and highly recommend Princess Cruises for the service and value for your money.
Traditional dining in the Botticelli Dining Room was a very pleasant experience. The wait staff were professional in attitude and service. We were given the VIP service and felt like royalty. Fine dining every evening was the best part of the trip. The meal selections were world class and the portions were the right size, allowing us to have starters, entree and dessert without feeling overstuffed.
Our room steward was also friendly and sweet. She kept our room neat, clean and tidy. We were also extended every courtesy and treated with respect. Our bed was comfortable with a luxurious duvet and fresh towels were provided every day!
The Cruise Director's staff was fun and entertaining. We love to dance! Our dance instructor from Brazil was knowledgeable, fun and handsome too. Yes, ladies, there is quite a lot of eye candy for us too. He taught us the cha cha, merengue and country line dances.
We look forward to cruising with Princess to the Mediterranean, the Greek Isles and back to Australia in the future.
The room size is the same as a traditional balcony. The added size is a larger balcony, i.e. the area outside of the room on the terrace. I was disappointed that the room size was not extended. I wanted a larger room vs. a larger balcony! I will opt for a mini suite vs. a premium balcony on my next cruise with Princess.
