We decided to go 3 days prior to departure. No problem at all with check in. Traveling with 2 seniors. They do not have the medallion system working as well as it should. It was also useless for the seniors who are not into technology or smart phones. That did become an issue. Princess needs a backup plan for those seniors. We asked for no down feathers in the room and for 3 days we kept removing them every night. The ship had nothing interesting until the last 2 days of the cruise. On board entertainment was boring except for 1 comedian. After the first bingo game on the tables they brought back the paper cards. Food was better than previous cruises. One thing about the buffet, I am very allergic to shellfish and shrimp was on every section of the buffet. People were being relied upon to not cross contaminate, but that was a failure. I personally witnessed it happening many times with the serving utensils. Embark and dear went very well.

Didn't feel crowded even though it was full.
