This was an ok cruise. I have been on better Princess cruises.

Entertainment, from production shows, guest artists and entertainment around the ship was great if you were 60 and older. The crew show was the worst I have ever experienced. The three crew acts were wonderful, but to fill time the ships singers and dancers performed and the band also had a number. This is usually a highlight but left disappointed.The ship catered for its older passengers. We tried the nightclub but again found the music from the 60s and 70s. 85% of the activities around the ship geared to selling products. If your a fan of arts and craft go early as places were limited. This was highlighted by jewellery making where over 70 turned up but they only had kits for 25. Crew response was to complain to Princess directly. A hint for shows and activities get there early to get a seat.

Our balcony cabin was fine and no problems. Only a small thing on all cruises we have been on we have had towel animals left on the bed, but not on this one. A small touch but always nice to come back to.
