This is my first review. I am a first time British cruiser, 36 years old professional chap, who was, as I suspect many are, a little bemused by the number of alarmingly poor reviews on this site. It does make me wonder why some people go ... Read more

Just a quickie for British cruisers joining the ship this summer. They don't have any Marmite on board, so bring your own to avoid disappointment. It has been available on my three previous cruises aboard, but I got caught out this ... Read more

This was our third cruise with the Princess Cruise line. Our past cruises with this company were quite memorable. But this time things were slightly less fantastic. Our cabin was clean and comfortable and the service people aboard the ... Read more

The ports on this cruise were of interest to us. Embarkation was the easiest of any cruise we have been on. We chose to book all of our shore excursions independently, we were pleased with all of our excursions. We were not pleased ... Read more

This cruise, aboard Royal Princess, is certainly one that the cruise line can boast: a ship beautifully appointed and maintained; a staff worthy of recognition; fascinating ports and professionally escorted excursions! With 23 cruises ... Read more

Chose this cruise as part of our European holiday just myself and my husband. Whilst the ship is beautiful in decor and very bling it was extremely disappointing. The entertainment was boring and terrible and the food was just as ... Read more

This was our 4th Med cruise and even though my husband had said the last time, "I think we don't need to do the Mediterranean again", we decided to take another Med cruise. I had wanted to go to Santorini again and my husband ... Read more

Captain Rick was excellent. We got news of trouble in Istanbul but he monitored it and determined cruisers would be safe. Glad I got to see the Hagia Sophia. And again strong winds so we missed Valletta. But Ercolano in Naples (second time ... Read more

4th cruise with Princess. We have had good experiences in the past with Princess, but this one had a problem with the food quality. Essentially in the Horizon Court the food was often cold, over cooked and lacking in presentation. The ... Read more

Great cruise for me, my husband, his sister, and my aunt. Cabin--Stateroom was very nice, with a a great bed and several dual US/European outlets. We booked R525, 529, and 533 so we could connect balconies. Worked great...narrow, ... Read more

Wonderful, although port intensive cruise. Ship was beautiful, clean and service was amazing. There is plenty of things to do, and lots of ship to explore, but it was also easy to find a couple of favorite places. The ship is large ... Read more

We chose this for the itinerary - was very interested in the stops in Italy, and stayed in Rome at the end for 3 more days. No hassle getting on the ship in Barcelona - lines were nonexistent. There are so many activities on board - ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise. We have earlier cruised on Royal Caribbean, Celebrity & Princess. Cruises are a good way to have a leisure holiday where you can choose what you want to do on every day you are on the ship. The ship it self ... Read more

This is my 3rd cruise on Princess and I have been on 2 cruises on Royal Carribean. I think I will seriously reconsider going back to Princess cruises for a very long time. I felt discriminated against because my family was Asian (although ... Read more

The food on board was repetitive. The entertainment was a hyptimist and ridiculous passenger games. A some off the tours were so crowed the waIt times for the buses, tickets, and food was horrific. In La Margeita's breakfast stop, one ... Read more

The Royal Princess is a beautiful ship – too large for our tastes but lovely all the same. Our accessible stateroom was large, well-appointed and even the balcony was wheelchair accessible. Our steward was genuinely friendly and kept ... Read more
