Sail Date: Dec 2019
Cabin: Mini-Suite with Balcony

My 12th cruise with Princess, sadly my last one in any of the Princess ships constructed from the Majestic Princess onwards from 2017.

The good points. Excellent service, mostly excellent food, good attitude by almost all of the crew I encountered, ship in excellent condition, a good variety and great level of entertainment throughout the ship. The stateroom, mini suite, was fine and the on demand TV much appreciated That is why I usually cruise with Princess. Embarkation and disembarkation were quick and easy and tender service at Port Arthur good.

The not so good, in fact very disappointing. It seems to be the policy of Princess, and other cruise lines, to construct larger and larger cruise ships, jamming as many staterooms onto them as possible, and of course many more passengers. It would be fine if they also increased deck space, number of lifts, entertainment and food serving areas in line with this but the opposite is happening.
