We had friends going on this cruise and joined them. We are getting more and more disappointed in the nickel-and-diming done by Princess. Everything seems to cost more every time we cruise. They have taken away "Happy hour". The Elite Lounge used to have $5 for any drink, now its over $6 for crappy syrupy drinks. No more coffee cards, so they don't roll over - use them or lose them. If you have more than one entree at specialty dining, more money!!! Entertainment was poor, badly spaced and repetitive. The Cruise Director was quite inefficient. However, her staff were fabulous. We only did one Princess Shore excursion, to a luau. This was a large event with other companies participating. Princess had the worst tables with bad visibility. International Cafe was good with excellent service as was the Crooners Bar. However the bar in the Universe Lounge did not have a good bartender, more often than not the drinks tasted like they had no alcohol in them. I think it is time to look elsewhere.

Princess disappoints
