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

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

I chose this cruise because of the ports and the timing. I had a very specific time frame when I could travel, and I wanted to start in Barcelona and end in Rome. This cruise met my requirements perfectly. It was my first time cruising ... 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

We wanted to go back to Europe and taking this cruise was the easiest way to visit 10 ports in five countries. It stopped at several places on our bucket list, and we thoroughly enjoyed all of the excursions, food, and entertainment. It ... 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 had been on the sister ship, the Regal Princess, last year and thoroughly enjoyed it so this time we chose the Royal Princess. The ship was almost as good with a great cabin, good food and excellent service, particularly our cabin ... Read more

The ports of call on this cruise were great. Our experience on the ship was just ok. This was the first cruise for my husband and me, so perhaps our expectations were too high, but we both thought some things could have been so much ... 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

First time on Princess and I was very impressed. Food, service and entertainment were all top notch. The best part of this cruise was the itinerary. We left from Barcelona and the first stop was Marsaille and Aix-en-Provence in France. ... Read more

This was a port-intensive, wonderful cruise. The selection of ports, although we had been to most a few times before, was perfect. We especially enjoyed Istanbul. We booked a couple of our own excursions but used the Princess shore ... Read more

September 2015 proved to be the ideal time to cruise the Med on the Island Princess, as the ship had been refurbished in April 2015 and the weather was perfect. Having travelled on eight of the other Princess ships, we would now rate this ... Read more

We have cruised with Princess twice in the past and have enjoyed those cruises. We stayed 3 days in Barcelona before the cruise and loved the city. Would recommend that. We signed up for 8 excursions in 12 days , might not do that ... Read more
