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

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 have sailed Princess four previous times and have been extremely pleased. This time, not so much. The Royal had just got out of dry dock prior to its Rome departure. It should have stayed there a while longer. It was not ready for a ... 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

We went on Royal Princess Mediterranean cruise on 17 September and embarkation at Athens Piraeus was smooth and speedy, unlike previous experience in Singapore with Sapphire. The ship is huge and really alluring and there were two entrance ... 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

Our family boarded Royal Princess on the 17th of September and disembarked on the 24th of September - family with teens. The embarkation was great, with Princess providing a smooth process and allowing embarkation earlier than advertised. ... 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

We had been anticipating our first family cruise for quite a while. With an early fall break for the kids due to Eid, this seemed like the perfect time to get to some great ports of call. Original schedule had Rome, Istanbul, and Athens ... Read more

Desperately upset with Princess. Embarkation was flawless ... from there on it went down hill. At some point (probably during the frequent itinerary changes) my preferred cabin was changed without my knowledge. In the end I was ... Read more
