Sail Date: Dec 2019
Cabin: Balcony

Was offered a deal at 1/4 of original price!

Ship was fully booked. Worst Food/Service/Entertainment of any Princess cruise I have ever sailed. Ships staff were poorly trained. Ship badly needs a complete overhaul.

Buffet was a mystery, only about half the dishes had signs, about 10% had the wrong signs. Some tables did not even have salt and pepper shakers. Ice machine in one side was down for 3 days. People who were supposed to bus the tables, looked straight ahead and would only come to the table if called.
