We chose this cruise for the itinerary.
Very disappointed all round with this cruise.
I suppose it’s the sign of the times where a lot of cost cutting is happening.
-Staffing levels were inadequate. Staff were trying their best to provide a good service but there just were not enough staff.
Cabins - very good. Steward very good.
Food - ok but lacked variety. Service very poor and the lighting was very poor every night.
Entrainment - poor. A lot of the entertainment was passenger participation eg games like the yes/ no game etc.
After 9,30pm the ship was very quiet. Not many people in the bars - was this because the drinks were very expensive I wonder.
Disembarkation at ports was poorly organised - queues and more queues.
Ports of call were good but had several tenders: Bali and na Trang which meant you only had a short time ashore - this we knew at time of booking.
Overall disappointing as we were told by friends that Princess cruises were very good. Whilst on the cruise we met a lot of cruisers who said they travelled with Princess all the time and that standards had gone down a lot.
Would not recommend.
