I decided to do this 14 day cruise with my family from Fort Lauderdale stopping at 8 ports. Ship was nice, Onboarding was great. Room service was ok. The restaurant dining was quite good. However, the buffet was absolutely horrendous. Almost every day, the menu was limited and boring. Food looked recycled... dry or overcooked, unappetizing, bad smell. Fruits were sour or tasted rotten... melon was the worst. Ice cream ..which they called Gelato...was an awful sweet low quality frozen concoction that did not deserve to be called ice cream. You could find better prepared food at a college Cafe.

At night the evening theater offerings were very low grade. Only one performance during the entire cruise was mildly enjoyable.

I am shocked at the lack of quality control as I quite enjoyed a European cruise on Princess. If this is the post covid standard for Princess cruises, well count me out as a willing customer.
