Title: Princess Not as Good as in the Past
Post by: prince on August 09, 2018, 03:16:10 PM
We just returned from a 12 night British Isles cruise on Royal Princess. This was our first Princess cruise in two years. We found that dining room service was slower than we recalled on past Princess cruises. One reason may be that there are fewer assistant waiters. Information from the Princess galley tour noted that there are 109 waiters on board, but only 40 assistants. It used to be a one-to-one ratio.

Food quality was hit-or-miss. Fish was usually overcooked or mushy. Beef was usually good. The best food on the ship was at the International Cafe.

The tender process was unacceptable. There were long waits to disembark and re-embark at tender ports.

Shore excursions were grossly overpriced.

Production shows were good.

The “Movies under the stars” screen was used to screen concerts and movies most days, instead of providing live music.
