We did have 2 balcony cabins on deck 10 Caribe. Embarkation was swift and without a problem. The cabins, what to say about the cabins. The wear and tear is visible all over. The floors of the balconies were full of rust, paint spatters all over. Modern travelers carry with them a multitude of electric equipment, like phones and tablets. There is no way to charge them. There are 2 outlets hidden under the hair drier. If you use one you can't use the other. (See picture). So you ending up permanently trying to charge your electric equipment. The beds are good. But the cabins are really in for a refurbishment and a major one too. The best thing about the ship is the crew, in general friendly and helpfull. The food is at best very very average, sometimes even below par. Variation is minimal, certainly at the buffet. The any time dining was just OK, but also here the choices are minimal. The buffet certainly on the sea days is crowded, but still they keep the buffet at the 2nd part of the horizon closed. The first part is crowded so you have to walk to the second part for any seating at all. Lemonade is only available from the waiting staff, why? This is sooo slow! Entertainment, never experienced it so bad. The show in the theater "Blame it on the boogie" is 32 minutes!! All the other shows are also very short ones. Is in and out again. There was no change of the music, so after hearing the same band for 3 days on 3 different stages you've heard their repertoire, but you have to go for another 7 days with them. Fitness, 5 running machines were broken during the whole cruise. In the mornings allways very crowded. For what you have to pay this is a poor quality. I compare it with Norwegian and Celebrity and Princess is losing this here on most areas. Our first Princess Cruise but definitely the last

Very disappointing - stay away
