We usually cruise every year with a church related group, usually to the Caribbean. This was our first post COVID.
This was our 5th cruise all with Princess, 3 of them previously were on Crown class ships so we knew what to expect.
We had stateroom E726, a mini suite on Emerald Deck toward the stern. It was a good location as one set of stairs down you were on the promenade deck, and some of the activities we were at were either in Club Fusion or the Botticelli Dining Room. Maybe a little noisy when they were maneuvering near the dock as the engines were below us. I thought the newer deck chairs on the balcony were nicer than the old ones. I notice they don't leave chocolates in the room in the evening anymore, but it's not like one is going to go hungry on a cruise :)
