Additional details

Sail Date: May 2022

2 hour wait to board ship at Southampton. As soon as onboard informed our cabin had to be deep cleaned and not ready. Medallion app hopeless as was Medallion, otherwise known as my electronic tag and reduces you to a non person. 2 tenders broke down within 6 days and Princess need to be reminded these are Lifeboats as well as water taxis and as such should be cleaned regularly and certainly better maintained. Mask regulations completely OTT. Ship was supposedLy refurbished in 2019 as couldn’t sail for approx 2 years so I suggest it needs to go back and redone. The places we visited however, were really excellent apart from Portland.

Princess Cruises have downgraded themselves and certainly no longer in the category it used to be proud of. Cannot understand the good reviews on here as certainly not our experience. No Officers ever seen around anywhere.Disembarkation was excellent however.

Cabin Review

Smaller than expected but plenty of storage space. Cabin for 2 people but only one chair ?

Quite old fashioned
