  3. Star Princess
Very unhappy with Amalfi dining room. Changed to Portofino which was much better for service and food quality. Princess seems to nickel and dime for too many things - soda, bottled water. No longer offers happy hour prices and drinks very expensive. Star is old and showed its age - worn out furnishings. We have said with princess many times but will no longer choose them. Limited kid activities for a family centered destination. Horizon buffet very poor. Food and staff not good. Entertainment was good but shows crowded and seats hard to get. Cabin stewards very good but cabins are old and worn out. Embarkation was quick and easy and disembarking also is smooth. Most dissatisfied with food overall. Quality and selection have suffered since our last princess cruise 3 years ago. We will not sail with them again. Sad to see it falter so much but there are better lines.

Disappointed in Princess
