We took this cruise because it is a new ship and the Princess name would give us a more mature crowd with less children. The plan worked great , not many children and adult ages were mostly 50s to 70s . The cabin was standard , Balcony could be larger .Cabin was new and everything worked with no problem. The bed was very soft and comfortable .
Great band every night in the atrium ( they called it the piazza area ). Old folks like to dance to 60s through todays pop dance tunes and we went every night to dance with that band. The Medallion that is your room key didn't always work or connect correctly . there were four of us in our group and all had the same issue. Make no mistake , It is not easy to set up the Medallion on the ship. You will need help and will find help I think it was on deck 5 ? The Medallion did work great with embarkation as long as you do the prep work at home before the cruise. al in all I think when they get the bugs out it is much better then the cabin card . It did work great to find fellow passengers location on the ship and give you directions to find them.
We had open seating and that worked out for us . The food was great in the dinning rooms .We did not use any specialty dinning options. The food court was typical of other cruises . Hamburger station could be better ( our last cruise had a Guys hamburger grill that is hard to beat ). The food court ,Hamburger grill and Pizza bar closed early every night at 10 PM . So that after the main show in the theater if you wanted to get something to eat you were limited to a small snack bar on I think it was deck 4 ? Not much to choose from. I guess because It was an older crowd and the ship did get quiet after 10:30 pm. There is an Alfredos pizza on deck 7 that was included and there was no additional charge .Its a sit down great pizza and salad restaurant but also closes at 10 PM.
