We loved Princess after previous happy cruising with them. However, sadly, this cruise was far from good with poor food, not much quality entertainment and our cabin was not even clean when we arrived despite claims of enhanced cleaning. Crown Grill disappointed. Best food was in the International Cafe, which was great! We’re not giving up on Princess yet having already booked and paid for a Hawaii cruise on the Ruby again later this year. Hopefully they’ll be back on top of all issues by then! We sailed at 60% capacity and therefore fewer crew so maybe that explains some of the issues. Crew were amazing as always though! We knew post Covid would be difficult for everyone but surprised at the fall off in food quality especially in Crown Grill. Salty Dog was fantastic next to the pool and AWEFUL in the Wheelhouse which is curious. Maybe the chef needs a wake-up call, our server was terrified of him which was disturbing!
