This is a very worthwhile cruise to take for a broad brush visit to the major cities of Mediterranean countries. This cruise is port-intensive with 7 ports over 11 days so you'd be wise to choose the most attractive sites for shore trips ... Read more

I chose the Royal Princess based on the itinerary. I spent over a year planning for this 'once in a lifetime' trip with my 21 year old daughter. I am sad to say it certainly did NOT live up to our expectations. Primarily because of the ... Read more

I have been on 25 plus cruises, however, this was my first experience with Princess. We booked this cruise strictly because of the ports. We arrived at the terminal in Barcelona at noon and we were on the ship less than 20 minutes ... Read more

The ship was certainly impressive in appearance, the entertainment was good in the theatre, the service all-round was excellent especially in the MDR and Piazza bar area. The food was good in the MDR every night. Dined at Harmony the ... Read more

Wasn't overwhelmed to be honest. It was ok. Décor is very 1990s - dark and carpets are awful! Internet is a rip off .... and be careful to ensure that you log off completely if using the 80c per minute service on your phone. ... Read more

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

Royal Princess is of the most beautiful ships I have ever seen. The lobby is magnificent, the top deck took my breath away, when I saw the pools, the bar and the different food stations. Beautiful shops and a first class Spa, which we ... 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

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
