By reading the Princess Patter, delivered to your cabin each evening for the following day.

Princess neither requires nor offers pre-reserving of shows in advance of your cruise.

Debarking is a cruel procedure done to dogs.
Upgrades, Upsellls and Move Over Offers are completely different things.
As are being denied boarding and being disembarked early.
And don't get me started on Port Charges vs. Government Taxes, Fees, and Port Expenses.
The Jones Act is for cargo. The PVSA is "that terrible law" that restricts USA domestic sailings. But without which there would likely be no cruise ships with casinos, duty free shops, and international crew members willing to work fantastically hard every single day.
Lots of people fly in the morning of the cruise and catch crazy early flights home. Why ask us if you can? Just to be harassed by the regulars?
No hotels have free shuttles, free breakfast, free wifi, or free parking. You pay in the rate. And could have found a better deal paying by the piece.
And don't forget: the cruise line is in complete control of the weather, political unrest, medical emergencies, and anything else that delays or re-routes your cruise. Be sure to demand compensation as it is you and only you who were affected.

Just don't linger in the dining room with that second cup of coffee thinking you can arrive 10 minutes before show time & expect to get a seat.
Especially with the productions shows.

Yes, by reading the Princess Patter each day. Note that Princess uses three general show time slots for it's theater shows. There is normally a show in the 8:00/8:30pm time frame. These are the most crowded, arrive at least 30 mins early. Generally there is a later show in the 10:00/10:30pm time frame. These shows are not so crowded, and you can arrive closer to curtain time. Sometimes there is a show around 7:00pm.
Depending on the ship there are also shows, usually comics, singers, and other entertainers in either the Vista Lounge or Explorer's Lounge. These are smaller venues and fill up faster. Times for these shows may overlap theater shows.
All shows and entertainment on Princess ships are walk in, no reservations.
