This Ship is nice and well maintained. There always seemed to be someone out painting on the top decks and i never did see garbage or any dirty dishes about. WARNING: We did have a huge setback however with Princess deciding to be the first ship to hook up to shore power in Norway. This caused our ship to have a power outage and fry some of the ships systems. As such we did not leave port until late, which caused our travel time to Scotland to be extensive. We where unable to do our excursion in Scottland that we book with Princess, who did not offer much assistance to rebook, often advising "sorry we are full" as we where not one of the first people to rebook. You would assume that since our tour bus was booked for our excursion, there would be enough busses to book the shorter excursions. PowerCon of Denmark supplied the equipment for the shore power which caused the power outage. Hopefully they fix this in the future, but be warned that if your ship decides to hook up to the power there, you may not be leaving on time and arriving at your next port. With regards to the fitness centre, although it is a nice gym they have set up, the classes that go on for Spin/TRX...etc in the smaller room are not advertised or talked about. You may have to ask to sign up for these classes??? not sure, but would even pay extra to do some of these activities. I do have to say though, the Service we ecountered on this ship was AMAZING. We had amazing staff and service the entire time. Dining was always available and we had pretty much no wait times. The buffet had great option for everyone and lots of vegetables to keep it healthy. We had no problem getting a table in any dining room at any time, but noticed temperature of the mains coming out was always room temperature (not hot or cold, but warmish). Some nights had great choices and some nights had nothing that we wanted, but there was always something upstairs. We did several "upgraded" dinning nights. The Crown grill was the best choice, with us going back several times (where are you going to get a huge steak for $29 back home?) and always having a great experience. That being said, we did the Chef’s Table Lumiere, which turned out to be a bit of a disappointment on the food side. The tour was amazing and the app's in the kitchen where good, but the actual sit down meal left alot to be desired. I would have used the money to go back to the Crown Grill again instead. Read Less
