Sail Date: Sep 2019
Cabin: Mini-Suite with Balcony

The embarkation was terrible it took 41/2 hours to get us all aboard. There were three cruise ships, 9,000 people boarding at the same time. Lots of people saying they have never experienced such a wait and would never do this cruise again. Definately put me off going on a Princess cruise again. Ended up leaving an hour late! The food was mediocre, and please when you do an Italian dish, look it up as it was was not made properly. Our room was cold and a shower would be better then a bath as people with certain disabilities find it hard to climb in. Otherwise the entertainment was great, but the casino could have more of a variety of slot machines. Ship is very clean and so is the restaurant. When making milkshakes straws are used NOT spoons. The staff were excellent and very helpful. The advertising for Effee needs to be toned down a lot. On the whole I had fun.

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony

Cabin MD

The suite was average, could be modernized. It would be nice if the suite has a shower and not a bath. The room was very cold, the heating did not work. Enjoyed having a balcony room, makes it feel warmer and not claustrophobic.
