As a frequent cruiser, I tend to expect a lot. I travel on various cruise lines and am on Princess at least half of the time. The service and food on this ship was noticeably superior. Ship management and staff should be congratulated. Attentive wait staff and overall food venues were exceptionally good. Pastry,bread,soup, buffet, dining room presentations were available and at the right temperatures etc. We choose this cruise to get away for a while and the itinerary was perfect for that. The ship handled the long sea days well and was about the right size for a 28 day trip. The ship is scheduled for a facelift which should make the experience even nicer. Keep it up Princess and we will be back! Shore excursions were good but like most ships, the price seems to go up along with drink prices. Overall, it was a memorable experience. Most passengers were very happy with the cruise.

A pleasant surprise

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BA b201
A little small but not beyond the industry standard. Some worn areas that need attention.
