Our first time with Princess and I hope it won't be our last! A smooth embarkation at Copenhagen- we had Princess flights and transfers- and we were soon exploring the ship and having a bite to eat in Horizon Court. The itinerary was great although we weren't ever so struck with Aarhus. The weather was much better than we anticipated and although the Princess trips we took were expensive they did work out to be very enjoyable. The ballet in St Ptetersburg was unforgettable and was probably one of the highlights of our trip. The food could not be faulted really and our waiter remembered our preferences and made helpful suggestions.As expected on an American line it was not possible to get a decent expresso. I was itching to pop aboard Costa Pacifica when we moored across the water! Our main criticism was the entertainment. An excellent String Quartet played at afternoon tea-time and at other times in the atrium but it would have been good to know their schedule so as not to miss the performances. Sometimes the entertainment in the lounges was non-existent and after 11p.m. it was more a case of "Ghost Princess"! But agreat trip and we wanted to go round again!

Emerald Can we go again TODAY!!
