We had a wonderful cruise on a beautiful ship! Even its a big ship it felt never crowded. You can find a nice quite spot everywhere. Loved the elegant style in gold and brown/beige colours. Loved the piazza, makes it a great center with the balconies around on 3 floors. We got lost even after 10 days, because the architecture is a little complicate. You do not get everywhere with all elevators etc. What we really missed is a "walk around the ship" (Holland Americas Westerdam has a beautiful one with deck chairs everywhere). The ship is very good accessible with a wheelchair. There is at least one automatic door opener to get outside everywhere (sometimes you have to find out the best way where to go first...). Everywhere there are accessible toilets too. The carpet around the ship is hard to wheel on it, but it has a lot of marble floor where it is easy to roll on. The Buffet (we only went there for breakfast) was huge! But not so good organized. You could walk around for hours to look for something or to "collect" your food for an egg benedict f.e. Why couldn't they put all the bread/butter/jam-stuff together and the müesli-things together and the hot food together??? The food in the dining room was very good, but the choice sometimes a little small. But they try to fulfil your whishes if you want something thats not on the menucard. We had traditional dining on a table of 6 people and had a lot of fun together. Waiters were very friendly, but it took them 5 days until they got it that they have to take away the chair at my place (because of the wheelchair) and they did not get it until the last day that we wanted our water without ice... and they lost our wine-bottle... What you really have to try is the pizza at alfredos! They are really as excellent as everybody says :-) "Normal" Coffee was drinkable, but we highly suggest to buy a coffee-card! The cappuccino was excellent, sometimes with cute "drawings" on it, what makes you start in the day with a big smile at the breakfast table :-) You can use the coffee-card for crepes at "gelatos" also such as for icecream and hot chocolate! We had a soda drinking package and a unlimited soda package. For us it was not really worth it, because the water was good to drink and we are not so very much in "sweet drinks". We were looking forward to playing some poker turnaments. But they only had cash games. If you only want to play for fun with f. e. 100 dollars then you are lost on a table where people can play with up to 3000 dollar! We were very disappointed :-( The stuff was not willing to organize turnaments although we talked with a lot of people who would have appreciated to play turnaments! We did not take part in all the gambling shows etc. But we visited a lecture for "navigation with stars and sextant", which was very interesting, hold by an pensioneered enthousiastic geographic teacher, which was very fun :-) We have not seen the evening shows, the ones we wanted to see were full. You have to be there really early! For us 10.15 pm was to early because we had interesting and funny table mates and sat long for dinner :-) There were very good bands and concerts during all the day on several spots, which were very nice and had a good quality. Over all, we loved the ship and we will definitly cruise with princess again! How used to say the cruise director in his speakings? "Enjoy the day on the magnificent regal princess!" :-)

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BB
Very good accessible cabin:
Much space to move around the room with a wheelchair. But the carpet is very strong to wheel on it...
Roll in shower with solid seat bench, good hight of the sink, much space for wheelchair in the bathroom.
Balcony door heavy to open, but good access with no threshold. Very small balcony.
Much stowage (many drawers), but no pull down cloth rail, but 2 hanging positions, but for me eighter too hight (could hardly reach it), or to low to hang something on it.
