We choose this cruise for the itinerary and the fact we sailed with Princess before. We were not disappointed with either. Service, food, ship cleanliness, events on board...all were excellent and done very well. Embark/Disembark is smooth, easy to get around on ship, cabin size is fine (we had Balcony rear part of ship), quiet cabin. We did the "anytime" dining which worked well for us. Some nights we had a wait time which was not long, perhaps 20-30mins on average, if that. Food selections were good and portions reasonable. Buffet had very good selection of items, quality good as well. Deserts were plentiful and also good variety. Excursions were numerous but found them to be a bit high in price for what you got. We did the "St Petersburg 2 day" tour and while no complaints about the tour, in the end thought $900 was high for the both of us considering what we got. Other than the price, tours felt a bit rushed to meet some short times in port, especially in Stockholm We will cruise again with Princess. Cruise before this one was with Celebrity in the Med......which was TERRIBLE. Will never cruise with Celebrity again as service, food, and staff was a joke. Comparing Princess to Celebrity is similar to comparing the comfort and safety of a Suburbon to a Smart car.

Wonderful Experience

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BE A726
Size fine,room temp very good, bed comfortable, balcony average but sufficient. Sufficient electric plugs in room (US type), water temp good, shower size normal. Distance to elevator good, room quiet. Could not hear neighbors except in morning as they tried to open their balcony door (they struggled for some reason). Would recommend balcony room either front or rear of ship as this ship has glass walkway at top of ship which allows folks using the walkway to see the balconies of the rooms below.
