What most determined our choosing this particular cruise was The Itinerary and most of all it was out of NYC which is driving distance away. We have traveled Princess before. This is a newer ship in good shape. The cleanliness of the Ship was great. Our cabin was quiet and extreemly clean. The quality of food was not as good as it was two years ago when we traveled on the same ship. Things that determined the Average Rating are as follows:
1. Cruise Line has cut back on the quality and quantity of food. An extremely small portion of lobster. Dinner featuring fried chicken had two very small pieces of dark meat.
2. Medallion does not always work - A passenger card is much better. After taking twenty-five cruises the card is a better way of cruising. Medallion tracks you everywhere - Big Brother.
Great location in AFT of ship - quiet and last cabin before AFT facing cabins to sea.
Beautiful port. Easy walking to sights we wanted to see.
Cliff Walk is easily accessible. Only about a one and one half walk away.
Easy walk to what we wanted to see. We are very familiar with Boston so we knew where to go. Black Falcon Cruise Terminal is the worst Terminal ever. Dirty and no reception whatever. It does not represent the Beautiful City of Boston well.
We walked the boardwalk and returned to ship via downtown streets. Beautiful board walk and easy walking tour on our own,
