The food quality is going downhill from previous Princess cruises, especially in the buffet areas; but, also to some degree in the main dining rooms. The steak house was good, especially the filet. The boneless rib tasted good, but had too much gristle. Never found a really good desert in any dining area - except the real ice cream that you had to pay extra to get. This ship is over ten years old. The cabin furnishings are in serious need of rehab = the lampshades were literally falling apart from age. It took four days to replace a blown light bulb. The toilet was permanently stained. While an improvement from previous cruises, the Internet is slow (sometimes very slow) and sometimes intermittent. The change to a rate per day is good, but the Internet Manager is available only for two periods per day. Highly recommend getting a cabin with a tub and not a shower!
