We chose this cruise as it visited ports that were on our must see list and it would give us a taste of each, so we could decide if we would revisit again and spend more time in the future. Embarkation was smooth, although the queues ... Read more

We have been on the Royal before and think she is a great ship. The major issue is that on Royal you cannot walk around the whole outside of deck 7 Promenade like you can on other Princess ships. Service was great and our room steward ... Read more

Embarkation was easy in Rome and our cabin size was as expected & comfortable. The balcony is a bit small but adequate. We used anytime dining and as we were happy to share never waited very long. The restaurant food was patchy and ... Read more

We started our trip with a couple of days in Rome exploring. We would love to go back and spend a couple of weeks. We were impressed with the Royal. But this was only our second cruise. We received an upgrade to a mini suite the ... Read more

We choose this cruise because of the less travelled month and the ports of call. Spent a few days in Barcellona before embarkation and it was wonderful. We stayed at hotel Espana in the heart of the city. It was walking distance to ... Read more

We chose this cruise because the dates fit into our itinerary and we have sailed previously with Princess. The ports we visited were all pretty good although we cannot comment on Marseilles as we didn't hop off the ship there. The ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the destinations! Princess offered great ports. It was unfortunate that Istanbul was removed from the itinerary, but due to safety reasons in that part of the world, it was a good decision. Regarding the Royal ... Read more

Chose the cruise for the itinerary and the price. Good value for 11 nights. Food generally very good, staff exceptionally polite and friendly. The stewards are especially good; the rooms are cleaned meticulously and kept fresh always. ... Read more

This is a very worthwhile cruise to take for a broad brush visit to the major cities of Mediterranean countries. This cruise is port-intensive with 7 ports over 11 days so you'd be wise to choose the most attractive sites for shore trips ... Read more

I chose the Royal Princess based on the itinerary. I spent over a year planning for this 'once in a lifetime' trip with my 21 year old daughter. I am sad to say it certainly did NOT live up to our expectations. Primarily because of the ... Read more

We took this cruise to do an overview of European cities/ports. From toboggans in Funchal to tours of Aix de Provence and ending up in Rome, it was great and the time passed very quickly. The penthouse suite was spacious ,the bathroom ... Read more

Long-time Princess cruisers, our first Transatlantic (five days after retiring!). Embarkation at Fort Lauderdale was consistent with other cruises from this, our home port - chaotic, but pretty fast. We settled in for a very relaxing ... Read more

This cruise ship was lacking in some exercise ability features like a steam room and sauna in the locker rooms next to the fitness center. Even though the princess website indicates that there is a steam shower in the locker room I saw an ... Read more

Sailed April 2017
The worst food and service we have ever experienced in over 35+ cruises. Simple dinner in a non-crowded dining room took over 1 hour and 45 minutes! Customer service was not present, except possibly our room attendant. I can count on one ... Read more

Review of Transatlantic Cruise April 27 - May 6, 2017 Embarkation at FLL was a bit of a mess. We got to the port about 11:30 am. There were long lines but no one seemed to know which line was for priority passengers and which for ... Read more

The embarkation was simple and well done. We had an obstructed balcony but since it wasn't really hot we did not spend a lot of time on the balcony. We did sit out there in port. The obstruction was not horrible because the boat only ... Read more

Third trip on the Royal and loved it again. Big enough to swallow up all 3K people and never feel crowded. Booked a suite R611 and was happy we did, the extra space let us entertain our friends and plenty of room to move around in. In ... Read more

This was my 8th cruise with Princess, and most likely will be my last. I first sailed on the Island Princess 9 years ago to Alaska and the experience was so wonderful I had since become a habitual cruiser. However, in the past 9 years the ... Read more

Nice break for Easter holidays with 6 ports to keep it interesting. Beautiful Piazza with more going on there than other ships. Dining room food about the same - usually very good and sometimes on either side of that. Rooms (I was in ... Read more
