We had not travelled on Princess Line since our Alaska cruise in 2011. We chose this cruise because of the timing and the itinerary. We found the room exceedingly small, especially the bathroom...smaller than any other ship we have travelled on. The balcony was spacious but of course on this cruise got used less because of the cooler weather. The staff in general was attentive but not really engaging especially the officers. Highlites we our room attendant and our dining room staff. The tender process was tedious and quite cumbersome. Especially with all the early morning tours and mass exodus. Long lines to get back to the ship at every tender port. Entertainment was quite good especially the comedian who kept us in stitches. Ports were interesting with many opportunities and varied excursions. Ship was clean and fairly well maintained although somewhat difficult to navigate with washrooms hard to find at times. The buffet was just ok and we found the dining room selections hit and miss.

Not quite the value expected
