Great ship for the fit.. Layout is different from other Princess ships Buffet is great BUT very big, lots of walking. Seems 3 times longer than otherships. Not good for passengers with walkers/scooters etc Miss deck 7 for walking, walking only on top deck, very windy and cold. No sit down lunches at dining room on sea days. Only buffet, as I said..lotsa of walking Always sail aft cabins, but NOT again on this ship Covered with soot, on deck and on your clothes. VERY small premium aft balcony and cabin. No privacy from above balconies, especially top decks forward, the bar above looks directly into the suites/balconies The seawalk also looks directly into a floor of balconies. Not avery private Miss the explorers lounge and original wheelhouse bar for dancing Liked aft balcony on Ruby princess better Great group Excite BUT only played in the piazza, too open and bright and on display to feel comfortable dancing

Soot on Aft Balconies
