We chose this cruise being a new ship, we had 2 other couples joining us. We are all mid 40’s to early 50’s. We have sailed Princess many times and also sailed a few other lines. Good -Buffet was one of the best -Production shows were fabulous as was all entertainment -Medallion for accessing room was great and reliable -the App was great for locating our friends on the ship (but was dependent on stability of WiFi) -Decor and rooms were very nice (we were after premium deluxe balcony) -Elevator service was not as bad as others previously expressed (not too slow) -casino had a good variety of slots Not Great -Dining room service was slower than usual -Overall bar service was slow in all areas (was hard to get a drink) -Purchased WiFi but it did not work in many parts of the ship -The app for ordering drinks was cool but if you were in a WiFi dead zone then you couldn’t use it. Also some areas like the Princess theater it wasn’t an option. -the staff seemed less friendly/personable than what we’ve experienced in the past -they hosted a formal night on a port day so that timing was difficult -the app for messaging friends was useless, there was no pop up notifications appearing regardless of all the setting we tried (so we bought WiFi so we could communicate) -iPhones were able to text with WiFi (when you found service) but others brands of smartphones in our group could not

Beautiful Ship
