Cabin: Interior

Excellent choice of ports. Princess has good value and consistent and organized product. Food is excellent but occasionally disappoints. Good coffee still seems to be a weakness although café bar at extra charge is a nice touch. Value added features are pushed and not good value for money especially excursions. You have to be careful as you can quickly find the bill for your holiday much higher than expected. Many days at sea and despite some rough weather this time of year ship was more stable than expected. Gym is a bit crowded and perhaps used more than it was designed for. Exercise seems to be a priority for the demographic on board. Overall experience was very good and I would recommend this particular itinerary. London and Singapore at each end were also worth spending extra time at. Had several changes due to weather and unexpected medical evacuations but handled well. Just a reminder that things don't always go as planned and you have to be tolerant. Also a reminder to be sure you know what is covered on your medical insurance plans including evacuation costs.

Cabin Review

Interior

Inside cabin very spacious, lots of storage, could turn heat very low. Beds comfortable although pillows a bit bulky and duvets a bit too warm for me. Bathrooms excellent and shower roomy with lots of hot water and good water pressure.

Hop on Hop off bus very good

Monkeys on rock unnerving may want to miss as long line ups just to be harassed by wildlife

This is a waste of time take an excursion away from the port
