We were new to cruising so unsure of what to expect, a few reviews on here about the sea princess were not great and the panic set in! However we didn't need to worry as it was absolutely fantastic. Our room was spotless and our stateroom ... Read more

We had never thought about cruising until we met a couple whilst on holiday in Cuba that had done a couple of cruises and got us thinking. We checked several travel companies for quotes and then went to our usual travel agent to see if ... Read more

The flight from Doncaster airport was dreadful- we boarded the plane at the correct time only to be told to get off again because there was a problem with the airplane. The staff didn't tell us anything. Eventually because there were no ... Read more

First thing to remember is that it is your holiday despite the fact that you may be travelling with friends. Do what YOU want to do otherwise you will be disappointed. Sea Princess had 1900 british passengers and the cruise director and ... Read more

Our flight was slightly delayed to Barbados, so we were tired by time we looked for a meal and the ship's main Maitre D efficiently came to help. With few exceptions the crew were great, a couple went the "extra mile" and throughout a ... Read more

Just returned from a good trip to the Caribbean but some things could be improved. Main point is general to all cruise lines - I think it is unethical for 3/4 ships to be in port at the same time and then nothing for 2 days when the ... Read more

This was our second cruise with Princess - we previously sailed to Hawaii with Regal Princess in 2007, which was a rather mixed experience. We chose this cruise because of the itinerary - 11 Caribbean ports in 14 days - while the idea of ... Read more

In 2000 we went on the Dawn Princess to the Caribbean which is a sister ship to the Sea Princess and really liked the ship and the Sea Princess is great as well as it is a good size and not too big like some of the newer ships. Our cabin ... Read more

I have seen some reviews of this ship which complain about how dull it was - with few "fun" activities on ship. That because it's aimed at "the Brits" and not the Amerians, it is dull. Well - I applaud it for being so. The thought ... Read more
