Everyone was on the cruise to see Greenland, which we did. 3 stops. Very little tourist infrastructure in Greenland, so hard for disabled people, even if they can manage the tenders to shore. However, there were no port lectures or educational material on board for this trip, which was crazy. I read a book on G previously, so i became the expert. If they didn't have a resident expert, they could have gotten someone to do a power point for them, any teacher could do it, and put it on the TV system. As a cruise it was fine, but the lack of education on G was a big issue for everyone. If G improved their docks, added some restrooms, and an info center, it would be good. A hop on bus, even if small would make it much easier for the disabled to see the sights. G is fascinating if you do your own research. The Canada ports were great, very informative tours, although i would have liked more time at Signal Hill and skipped the fishing village. My husband suggested they go further north to see glaciers and icebergs more as scenic cruising. Otherwise, it was a lovely Princess ship with good food, etc. Missed Alfredos pizza place, didn't need more jewelry shops. Love the Medallion service, good internet except when you are in the Arctic. Debarkation did not go well for handicapped, some paperwork slip up , and total lack of wheelchairs and helpers for that. and a piece of our luggage did not make it on the transfer bus, altho we eventually got it delivered. Many on this ship were disabled and they did not have the capacity for this in debarkation.

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BB B615
Seemed spacious and everything worked. Very good location to the aft. Great steward.

As in most Princess ships, they are taking away chairs in the public areas, especially around the international cafe and in the buffet to add more bars or profit eating centers. results in long lines at the buffet, hard to find seat. Also problem in the Theater where you had to go more than half hour before to even find a seat at all.
