Good Cruise

Good Cruise but major work needed on embarkation and disembarkation. The current processes while in port are cumbersome and lead to long lines and long waits to return to the ship. One of the re-embarkation ...

We sailed with Princess eight times in the past but this was the worst. The biggest problem was Princess does not enforce hand sanitizing of passengers in areas serving food like the buffet. Passengers were grabbing ...
