Princess Cruises doesn't set out to dazzle with gimmickry (no bumper cars at sea, ropes courses or simulated surf pools for this Princess), and it's never wanted (or needed) to. The line opts for a more ...

We chose this cruise because it stopped in many ports in Spain where my daughter is now living. We chose a Transatlantic because for a very busy working couple it was nice to start the cruise with some days at sea where we could totally ... Read more

My husband & I took this cruise because we've taken many cruises but never Trans-Atlantic. For the most part it was very enjoyable but i don't think I would do it again as it was too many sea days for us. The first week became a ... Read more

We did not explore Ft. Lauderdale before we embarked. We have lived there, so no need to tour around. The only real negative was that there was a huge line for embarkation. It was probably the worst in all of our cruises. We flew in to ... Read more

I loved The Caribbean Princess so I thought I couldn't go wrong with Princess. Boy, was I wrong. This ship is like an experiment gone wrong. Take all the bad ideas on all my previous cruises and put them all together, and I found it in one ... Read more

Loved the ship although the food was a huge disappointment and the cruise directing staff lacked enthusiasm. Also seemed like there were less entertainment options compared to other cruises I've been on. Getting off the ship was crazy ... Read more

This is our second Princess cruise and we decided to do a 20 day back-to-back Caribbean cruise to save on air fares from the UK. The ship itself looked great both outside and in. Princess cruises seem to have achieved a really good blend ... Read more

We are long time Princess cruisers (family of four) and we were delighted to cruise on the relatively new Royal Princess. I won't go into embarkation details since as Preferred Guests, it was easy for us. But I will say to allow time if ... Read more
