My husband and I took this cruise to celebrate his 40th birthday. May parents who are about to turn 60 joined us to celebrate their own birthday milestones. We were the youngest 4 people on the ship. Average age was 75+ and the ... Read more

I will begin by saying that my husband and I have cruised enough to understand that not everyone's experience will resemble ours and that expectations have a lot to do with the overall satisfaction of the experience. We value the ... Read more

The itinerary was the primary reason this cruise was chosen, but I expected Princess to provide a solid on-board experience. Unfortunately, too many problems that should have been very preventable will lead us to choose elsewhere in the ... Read more

We chose this particular cruise for the ports of call, which were mostly enjoyable. Although the ship itself is very clean, and the staff is fabulous, I'd say the ship is "tired". The common areas have been refurbished, but the ... Read more

Chose for the ports and they were all excellent. One port we did not get to due to weather. We were lucky and the weather was good - mostly in upper 40's and 50's but no rain at all. The staff was excellent especially our cabin maid Rose. ... Read more

We picked the cruise for it's ports...and they did not disappoint. We had 2 tender ports. I honestly do not understand why large ships go to tender ports..and when they do, they should be far more prepared to get folks off the ship ... Read more

I chose this cruise primarily because of the itinerary (British Isles cruise), and because I had cruised Princess twice before- 20 and 13 years ago. I didn't realize it had deteriorated so much, but have been told things are terrible since ... Read more

I decided to write this review whilst lying here in my cabin on the Caribian Princess so that everything remains fresh in my mind. This is my 5th cruise but my first time with Princess. I will start with the cabin. Cabin: The cabin ... Read more

We chose the Caribbean Princess European capitals cruise because of the great itinerary. We really enjoyed all the ports of call. It is worth taking this cruise for the excellent itinerary. This was the second cruise after the ... Read more

What appeared to be a good choice of varied destinations turned out to be a damp squib. Having just been refitted we were surprised that it did not look bright and new! Embarkation and cabin, when found as not shown on ship signage, was up ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the ports of call. The itinerary was the perfect balance of major cruise ports and variable sea days. This was our second Princess cruise. Our first was last spring (Spring Break!) on the Emerald Princess. This ... Read more

Choose this for the sea days to relax. Loved the time to explore the ship top to bottom. Embarkation was delayed due to problems beyond their control and we were notified by Princess and our TA in a timely manner. Stayed at our hotel ... Read more

We chose this cruise as we are Elite Princess cruisers and this trans-Atlantic cruise gave us a chance to end up in London to spend some time with our youngest son and his wife. We booked a Club Class mini-suite. We will never book ... Read more

We received an email stating that boarding would be delayed and not to arrive until 5:00 pm. Since we live close, this wasn't a problem. We did show up a little earlier as a friend said that they boarded with no problem. Our boarding ... Read more

After several cruises, we decided to go for a transatlantic one and see how we would like so many days at sea. We liked it a lot! We live in Florida and rented a car through Budget for drop off near the cruise pier. This worked real ... Read more

This cruise was not all that bad but it wasn't all that great either. Past Princess cruisers we met on board asked us to give Princess another go. We cruise based mainly on highest value - lowest price for high quality. Pros: The ... Read more

We were on the CP for the transatlantic after it came out of drydock. We have been on the CP twice before, and thought I'd post my opinion of some of the changes, good and bad. Hits - New beds very comfortable, new layout for buffet ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we like the transatlantic cruises and the ports of call this cruise offered. There were quite a few issues on this cruise as it was just coming off of dry dock and a lot of things were overlooked. The front ... Read more

This was our first Transatlantic voyage. The renovations to the ship were very noticeable as we had sailed twice before. Enjoyed the BBQ based Planks restaurant which replaced the Horizon buffet. They had great tasting options for ... Read more

Chose this cruise to get to Ireland. We have sailed about 18 times with Princess. The newly refurbished updated Horizon Court was very nicely appointed. The problem was the food at lunch was not very good. There was not much variety and it ... Read more

We had an adequate transatlantic crossing. It had some good points, but overall was just OK. We've been on 22 cruises and traveled many lines, some luxury and some mass market, but this was our first time on Princess. First the things ... Read more

This was a repositioning cruise and since we had never done a transatlantic cruise,we decided to try one. The price was an excellent value and one too good to pass up and not do it. The ship was just coming out of dry dock so we were the ... Read more
