We have been to many of the stops on this cruise, but the price was right and we have wanted to see the fall colors. Plus it gave us a chance to see the Atlantic Provinces of PEI and Nova Scotia. The colors did not disappoint although we missed Bar Harbor and St. John due to a storm that blew in while we were in port in Boston. We did none of the Princess offered tours (I'm just not into herding cats on busloads of people). The ship itself was quite nice. A recent refurbishment, plus the addition of the Medallion system made the sea days very enjoyable. It is a large ship and things can get quite crowded when it is full, but we always seemed to find a place for a quiet interlude if we wanted to. Princess has been striving to produce some new entertainment shows and we could see that paying off in the shows on this cruise. Let's just hope they do enough of them we don't hit too many repeats when we cruise again next year on another ship. The food was much better this cruise compared to our last Princess cruise to Hawaii in March 2018. The variety of dishes were good, the food delivered hot, and cooked to order.

Princess has done the Fall Colors cruise right

Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin IB
This is a very nice Interior cabin. The location is quiet and the cabin itself is well maintained. We had the queen bed configuration and the room around the bed seemed adequate for both of us. As with all these cabins, the bathroom area is small and tight.

One thing we noticed was the removal of the small table that is usually in the Interior cabins on Princess. Thank goodness! WE usually ask the steward to remove it anyway as it just gets in the way!
