We chose this ship because of the itinerary, however this was changed, and I understand that Turkey was taken off, but why Malta? Also several destinations were duplicated to make up the 21 day itinerary. However, at one destination our ... Read more

We chose the cruise because of the (original) port selection. Due to unrest, Princess cancelled Istanbul, which we understood and expected. However, they also needlessly cancelled Kusadesi AND Malta, neither of which were affected by the ... Read more

We had a wonderful cruise, we had an interior, and it worked for us, cabin steward was great. Dining was very good, we did late seating and our waiters were very good and helpful. We did the Super Tuscan dinner at Sabatinis and that was ... Read more

My wife and I chose this cruise because it had interesting-looking ports of call, it began and ended (for us) in Barcelona and Rome, two cities we wanted to spend a few extra days in, and it seemed reasonably priced. The ship was good, ... Read more

This was a wonderful 14 day cruise. Both the embarkation and disembarkation was easy and went smoothly. We enjoyed being on the ship and the food was great. Many of the bar tenders remembered what we were drinking and made us feel good. ... Read more

Wonderful cruise: Ship is beautiful (3 years old) and well maintained. Going into Dry Dock in a few weeks and adding a pool at the back of the boat. Pools are small - Retreat Pool is the best. Cabin was D616 on 9th floor - beware ... Read more

We chose this cruise simply because this was what we were getting in the desired month for our desired destination and in our budget. It was our very first cruise ever. Everything was simply superb about the cruise. The service was ... Read more

What we booked was the 14 day Western Mediterranean and Aegean Medley. We did not realize, at the time, that this was really 2 7-day cruises back-to-back rather than a single 14 day cruise. There were not any negative aspects to this: I ... Read more

I can't believe that I waited this long to take a cruise! The total experience was just amazing. We decided to arrive early to enjoy Barcelona. Our Princess cruise rep was with us all the way. She suggested the best lunch option and ... Read more

Just back from a 7 day cruise aboard the Royal Princess departing from Barcelona and ending in Rome. This was our first time on a Princess ship. Previously, we have sailed on RC and Disney. We were traveling with our 15 yr old son so I ... 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

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

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

We choose this cruise as it had only 3 sea days and 18 ports so it was all about small group tours to maximize the locations. We are experienced cruises and decide in advance if it is a cruise to relax and use the ship board activities, ... Read more
