This is really down market. Food is a very low standard - eating in the main dining room is like eating in a cafeteria. Food in the main dining room is often reheated from the buffet. Orders are taken in a hurried manner, plates are slapped down, and often plates are taken away by wait staff while others at the table are still eating. The ship is old and desperately needs a refurb. My shower had mould and a not very clean looking shower curtain. Entertainment was pretty good though. Everything is an add-in cost. They even charge for bottled drinking water, and gratuities are constantly added onto prices. Better to go on an all-inclusive cruise line (like Crystal or Scenic) because at least you know what you are getting for your money. Nothing would persuade us to ever travel with the Princess line again - it’s a bit bogan!

Avoid this cruise line
