Sea Princess has 3 pin british sockets in cabins though only 1 so take a small extension lead if you are taking lots. It has not been converted to american - it was converted FROM american when it first went to P&O. when it returned to princess they have aimed it at the british market and kept the sockets !

I switched from P & O when their food standards went downhill. The Americans are more fussy than brits and expect certain things as standard IE. every night there is sirloin steak, prawns(huge), new york cheescake etc.available AS WELL AS THE MOST GORGEOUS FISH AND MEAT YOU HAVE EVER HAD. The food on Sea Princess is the best (unless the chef has changed since April)You will get whole lobster tails not bits of lobster in a shell with sauce like on P & O. Sea princess used to be Adonia so you will find it familiar but there is no queuing for the captains cocktail party it is held in the atrium. Little things mean a lot. I am Sapphire tier on P&O but Elite (top tier)on Princess. I have been on Star and Grand but Sea is my favorite. Say Hello to Becky from grenada for me who is in charge of the champagne bar. Wish I was going too but I have got to visit my daughter who is principle singer on Ocean Village!! Its a hard life.

Thanks a lot for that info.We have been on Sea Princess when it was Adonia but didnt know if it has changed much since it is Princess line. I think one comment I have read somewhere says there are no tea making facilities in cabins whereas of course all P and O cabins have them. I really appreciate your comments as i keep thinking as we have been with P and O for the last 6 years and have always loved cruising with them have I made a mistake changing to Princess, but think your comments reassure me we should be fine. Just want to ask your thoughts on tipping as i believe it is deducted in dollars everyday from your cabin account something of which we are not used to.Only 7 days left before we go and counting!!
