Sail Date: Nov 2018
Cabin: Balcony

We’ve been on 8 prior Princess Cruises and several cruises with other lines. We had been impressed with Princess Cruises over the other lines until our recent cruises. Particularly their dining experience had been exceptional. The main disappointment with this cruise is that they have removed all the premium dinners from the main dining room. Now if you want lobster, crab legs, or scallops, you have to pay more onboard to go to a “specialty” dining room for $20-$30 per person.

The waiter service in the main dining room is still outstanding; the wait staff is very attentive, responsive, and skilled. The food served is good, but lacking the special meals.

The entertainment was good, but we’ve seen the production shows on previous cruises. The featured entertainment was very good. We’d seen them, but had updated routines.

Cabin Review


Cabin was nice and the steward was outstanding.

The view was nice, but a bit windy this trip.
