In keeping with most cruise lines cut backs are evident. Lovely ship, great theatre, and good lounges. Excellent pools with plenty of towels. Down side, expensive excursions, 15% gratuities on all drinks, no tea making facilities in cabins and tea made with hot not boiling water.charges for some shuttle buses although paying Select fare.what happened to wine waiters in the dining room is this just Princess lines ? Lots of activity centred around the Piazza so extremely crowded. Poor entertainment at first put improved on the third week. Staff at all levels were excellent.
