As a frequent cruiser with Princess I have noted a number of changes from my last cruise. On this cruise two thirds of the passengers were on their first cruise with Princess. The average age group was much lower than other cruises I have been on. The price of shore excursions was excessive. The Captain's Circle party now only invites Platinum and Elite Members and while the invitation indicated the party would be from 7:00 pm to 7:45 pm the drinks were stopped at 7:15 pm when the Captain stated talking and the party had finished by 7:30 pm. an obvious method of reducing costs. It was very difficult to get a seat in the theatre for the first performance after about 30 minutes before the show started. Entertainment overall was very good Embarkation and disembarkation was very well organised. Service onboard was excellent.
