The stateroom was good although there was an obscured view. Staff were all very good, the embarkation was good - no delays. Anytime dining is an excellent idea although 2nd sitting was booked. Both of our dietary problems were handled well by dining room staff, and the food very good but the quality seemed to fall on the last day. There was little variety of desserts, and drinks as usual were too expensive. The shows in the theatre were exceptional and very professional with superb entertainers. The music was too loud around the outside pool and sun loungers were being 'reserved'. The directions around the ship could be improved, but the Captain's announcements were clear, concise and informative. These were often missed if we were in the cabin and the TV was not on. This made it difficult if disembarking for a trip. There was a problem with the accounting system which lost a money birthday gift sent to the ship by our relatives - this might not have been received if we had not queried it with the staff. The dinal disembarkation was good.

The cruise itself was very good with food, wine, housekeeping and reception staff all being good or very good. The ship's policy on dress code was not enforced especially regarding no shorts in the dining rooms. We have unresolved as yet one very serious problem in that my credit card details were compromised leading to a substantial sum being fraudulently claimed. We would like to see Princess Lines adopting P & O's tea and coffee making facilities in staterooms.

The cruise to the Hawaii and the Polynesian islands was the best I have had since cruising over a decade ago. The crew and the bar staff were very polite and helpful. The best part of the crew was that the waiters and my stateroom steward were the most helpful and efficient in providing service with no complaints or hesitation. The ship is bit old and needs to go into dock for upgrade. On the whole do not expect too much cheaper products on board. These are expensive and cheaper on the Port shops. Just to give you an example, when we boarded the ship in LA., I was looking to buy Princess own brand Polo shirts, which I also bought on my previous cruise on Diamond Princess. These Polo shirts were advertised 2 for $40 for all sizes. A week before the end of the cruise, there was a sale on board with upto 75% off on all merchandise. I looked at the price of these Polo shirts and to my surprise, they were still 2 for $40 but only for small and medium sizes only. The large and extra large were priced at $24.99. When I asked at the counter staff for the change in price, there was no explanation. I was not the only one who noticed the price of the other items the same or increased but others commented them as well. This is disgraceful and dishonesty on the part of the management not to give any reason for the increase in price when it clearly stated on large bill board at the entrance to the room that the sale is upto 75% off.
