Sail Date: Jan 2022

First time on Princess. It felt like "old folks" day at the casino. Average age was pushing 70. The ship itself was very chopped up. Not one single deck to walk around the entire ship. The only deck for outdoor walking was just below the lifeboats and closed down half the time for painting, etc. Couldn't they have done that during the Covid shutdown? It was only possible to get from aft to stern on 2 of 19 decks, so if you were going from one end to the other, you always had to go down and back up. Most people were confused most of the time. The main dining room food was poor. Fancy menu with weird names to sound fancy. Had to google the names to figure it out and then it still didn't look right. Only got 4 delicious dinners out of 14. The cruise staff was great, Very friendly and helpful, They were the best part of the cruise. The Panama Canal transit was spectacular. I would highly recommend it. Just pick another cruise line.
