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

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

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

I was so impressed with the Royal Princess and all it had to offer in March 2015. Two years later this past March I did the same itinerary on the same ship. This time around left much to be desired. We tried the set dining time in the ... Read more

What a beautiful ship. We had sailed on its sister ship, the Regal Princess, and the layout, and in fact much of the decor was identical. Our balcony room was nice, but seemed smaller than usual. Leizal kept it spotless for us. We are ... Read more

We chose this particular cruise because we had not been to the southern Caribbean. We were rather hesitant about a 10 day cruise; but, so glad we did. We could have just stayed on board for the next trip. I cannot say enough good thing ... Read more

We traveled as a family of four - parents + 2 teenaged boys. Embarkation was shockingly quick, easy, and painless. It took us less than 20 minutes from dropping off our luggage to opening our cabin door. And we do not have any special ... Read more

This was our 24th cruise and having sailed on the Regal cruise in November we were hoping the Royal would live up to the high standards that the Regal set for us. The Royal did not disappoint. So on to the review and then plenty of ... Read more

We had done this same itinerary on the Emerald in 2012 and thought it worth a second look. Plus we wanted to see the new Royal Princess. As we do more cruises,(this is our 7th), the Wow factor is less, but other than a few glitches this ... Read more

This was our first time on Princess and were looking forward to having a mini suite. However, while the cabin was nice, it's location in the ship, two decks below the skywalk, and the constant vibration in our cabin, made it less than ... Read more
