Wanted to see the South Pacific by ship, and got a very nice deal (free sip and sail package). Ports of call were fine, learned a lot of local history. On board the staff from the dance girls to the orchestra to the wait staff and stewards...all were outstanding. Ship itself is old and not well maintained with leaks and inconsistent water to the cabins. Duct tape not really nice to see instead of worn out or shabby areas. Food was fine in restaurants and courts. Desserts everywhere were beautiful to the eye and delicious to the palate. I think everyone gained at least 5 pounds feasting. Entertainment was top notch, really amazing that the ship orchestra could adept to so many talents so quickly, and the ship singers and dancers were New York quality. Would certainly do Princess again, but on a newer ship. Check the date it first sailed, stay with something in last 5 years.

Great people, great cabin, poor internet and poor ship maintenance

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BA A 624
Nice size, steward was fantastic. Bed and pillows very comfortable. Ship however had "issues" with leaks, inconsistent hot and cold water, and very poor internet (yet really expensive). I would do Princess again, but on a new ship.
