Paid for internet access. Princess knew that their equipment was faulty and internet effectively unavailable. They even posted it at their internet café. Nice people at internet café couldn't get my email working either. The primary purpose of my trip was to be in a quite place to catch-up on work that required internet access. Other than an OK cruise on a ship scheduled for a major overhaul, it was a waste of money. Now I'm 2 more weeks behind. No compensation or refund for lack of internet service was offered. This affected everyone on the ship. Experienced the Chef's table, chef Convery. It was amazing. Definitely a must do if available on your cruise. Our server Stephanie was one of the vest we've ever had. Entertainment staff, i.e. cruise director and supporting folks we all very immature and too young for the crowd. Virtually nothing to do before 10am and many desirable events held during dinner making them impossible to attend. Medicines - bring basic items including cough drops and Robitussin type stuff. Minimal options and very expensive on board. Check out daily events before booking a cruise because there is a lot more than just the ports of call to making your cruise a success.

Internet - Shame, Shame, Shame!

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BD R525
Similar to most cruise line's balcony cabin. AC varied by 3 or 4 degrees w/o adjusting thermostat. Cabin steward serviced at his convenience and not when requested. Bed & linens very nice. Bath towels old and worn.
