We took this cruise as a winter getaway, and it served its purpose. positives: - we feel there's been an improvement in the quality of the entertainment, both in small venues and in the Princess Theatre (compared to previous Princess cruises) -we appreciated the full service sit-down pizzeria on board (no charge) -International cafe is a great place for a light meal or dessert -embarkation and disembarkation were a breeze not-so-positive: -it is hard to find a quiet spot on the ship outside of your cabin - even retreat pool area has noise filtering from other areas -food in main dining room is ok, but not exceptional -- appetizers were more inventive than mains -need to arrive at Princess Theatre at least 1/2 hour before showtime to get a seat negative: -we found the medallion app not user-friendly, complicated to access the internet app, and chat function not useful, as there is no notification that message has been sent
