The Cruise Director and his staff did a great job of keeping us entertained, and the show entertainment seemed well received.

Food is the only place we had much to complain about. There was plenty of it and maybe we are too pickie. Most of our cruising has been done with open seating, whereas Royal Princess has two seatings. For us, 6PM wwas too early and 8:15PM was too late. Also, when you all sit down together at one time, the whole dining room seems to be in a race to get you served. We took the majority of our meals in the LIDO. Open seating, usually by a window, with no hustle and bustle. Menu selection was not always that great, ( one evening was buffalo) and most all meat and fish is put on at beginning of trip. Even though we were cruising the coast of Norway, the salmon, we were told was frozen.

All the personnel had a genuine desire to help and make you happy. Any problems were promptly corrected.

All in all, we would say  the cruise was very good value for the money.
