An enjoyable cruise in Princess Grill for the following reasons;

Lovely Princess Grill cabin mid ship with fantastic views, spaciousness and extras such as tea, coffee maker, good sized bathrooms with amenities and handy to all areas.

The restaurant was amazing with an excellent table, service and food to die for. The only downside was both my husband eat Kosher food, two meals came with pork in them! The waiter who knew our request, quickly took them away and apologises offered.

The lounge area on deck 12 is comfortable but a little small, particularly on sea days when the weather was bad and 100 passengers were trying to get seats for approximately 50. Still, you don't seem to spend too much time there and a couple of hours was more than enough. A good tip is to go after dinner when most people head off to the show and the area is pretty much empty.

Highs were drinks with the captain, the formal nights were a joy (lobster thermidor was heavenly), the shows were superb and the atmosphere onboard was spot on.

A couple of niggles. The check in staff at Southampton could have been more welcoming with a smile and wishing us an enjoyable cruise, the cabin attendants would leave their trolleys stacked outside the cabins most hours and enjoyed waking guests at odd hours with their constant noise outside and for some reason we had plenty of maintenance issues - lights, balcony, carpet, air con which was a bit odd (5 visits in a 14 night cruise was a bit excessive).

All in all a great relaxing cruise and have now booked another!
