We are relative newbies to cruising. Did an Alaska cruise about 17 years ago on Royal Caribbean with our kids and my wife's parents (we live in Vancouver so it was convenient). Then no cruising till April this year, when my wife and I ... Read more

This cruise was 10 days long--just the right length for us. And it was within driving distance for us. And, best of all, the price was right. Embarkation was quick--we arrived at about 1:30 after enjoying lunch on shore with family. ... Read more

Sailed Princess Cruises many times. Chose 10 day Eastern Caribbean just because my husband and I love to cruise. Embarkation was smooth (Elite Status) and luggage arrived very quick. (Impressive) Cabin was clean. No working air ... Read more

We chose The Royal Princess, as good friends who are avid cruisers highly recommended it. We arrived at the Ft. Lauderdale port at around noon and the traffic was a nightmare, as our transfer took 45 minutes to reach the offloading ... Read more

We just returned from our 10 day eastern Carib cruise on the Royal. Princess did a marvelous job during the Royal's dry dock time in Palermo. The ship still has that "new" feel to it, and the new stairway has unquestionably ... Read more

We are a married couple in our 50s and have cruised Celebrity, RCCL, and Princess (enough to be Platinum). We also cruised Regal Princess last year, so we felt like we knew the Royal. We did the 5 day cruise from FLL to Mexico right ... Read more

We live in Florida, so taking a cruise is just a two hour car ride. We just look for a good price and off we go.We do prefer Princess and always look for their cruises first. This one wasn`t one of their better efforts. First the ... Read more

Summary--Overall this was the best of the three cruises I have been on, including the Norwegian Epic. Very pretty ship, with extremely beautiful finishings on the interior. Had a luxury feel instead of a family/party feel. The service and ... Read more

Took this trip as a quick getaway. Ship has come out of dry dock looking spectacular. The blue Sea Witch on ship's bow looks great. Did not think I would like it but it actually looks great. It makes the ship stand out and identified ... Read more

This was our 19th Princess cruise, and our shortest cruise ever. We booked it as a quick getaway, not expecting much. We were a bit apprehensive after reading a lot of negative reviews of this ship. Embarkation was stellar. Princess ... Read more

We scheduled this TA Cruise because we were visiting Italy for the 1st time for 8 nights before the Cruise. In the past our TA Cruise was 1st and then the vacation after the Cruise. This was much nicer being able to rest and relax at the ... Read more

We chose this cruise after sailing on the Regal Princess and being wowed by her. The experience on the Royal was vastly different though. Don't get me wrong, the ship is stunningly beautiful and the staff all top notch, no complaints ... Read more

I have sailed with Princess cruises several times and have always loved it. This time however, this was not the case. Princess seems to be cutting corners all over the place and while we (my sister and I) were expecting a wonderful ... Read more

We had done this in reverse in April 2015, had a great time then, expected the same. Although this was a nice cruise, it definitely was not stellar. Embarkation was smooth, as was disembarkation, but several things were not. The ... Read more

Occasion for the trip was our honey moon, so we decided to have a cruise because I already had experience with cruising, and my wife was interested. The cruise was chosen due to new big ship, good rate and interesting ports of call. ... Read more

Many of the CC passengers on the Sept. 3, 10, and 17 cruises on the Royal were extremely disgruntled with all the itinerary changes, so by the time my husband and I embarked on this cruise, we had low expectations. It was NOT the cruise ... Read more

We choose this cruise for the ports in Turkey and Malta. As results of the security situation in Turkey the cruise was rescheduled to other ports such as Corfu and Kotor. We were not happy with this change but understand why the the ... Read more
