The service on there was really good nothing too much trouble but be careful with reception as some of them do not speak good English or understand. The best person to speak with is Bernard who comes from Canada. We have never had such ... Read more

I read the forum relating to what the Island Princess would be like after her re-fit with some amusement as everyone seemed to be worrying so much! Anyway, despite having not been on this ship before we have been with a couple of other ... Read more

My wife and I have just returned home to NZ after a wonderful 28 day cruise around the Med. Thoroughly enjoyed the ship and crew, from the Commodore down to the guys and girls in the laundry. We've been aboard this ship previously, last ... Read more

Boarded the Emeral Princess in Athens for a 2 week cruise through the Greek Isles, Istanbul, Ephesus, Malta, and a few ports in Italy. The boarding process was effortless, and our bags were delivered to our cabin in record time. Our ... Read more

I seriously don't know where to start for this unbelievable cruise. This was our 25th (gulp) cruise and our 9th aboard Princess. And Emerald Princess did not disappoint! We began our venture in Barcelona, staying at the Princess sponsored ... Read more

We took the Mediterranean Medley cruise on the Emerald Princess. Overall, I felt that (in comparison with our previous two cruises) it was mildly disappointing. The ship was smaller than the Royal Princess, which was our first Princess ... Read more

I booked this cruise based on the port stops. I read most of the reviews on cruise critic before boarding so I knew what to expect. The ship was clean & very nice. I'm not picking on misc-- won't be checking out whether they need a ... Read more

We left Barcelona in early May destined for many ports around Mediterranean, including France, Italy, Greece, Malta, Turkey and back to Spain. Our main complaint would be that the cruise was actually 4 x7day cruises, which meant ... Read more

We were on the Regal Cruise Ship. Princess Cruise Line has treated my husband and I very well. We booked through our travel agent. His luggage was lost by airline and Princess retrieved his luggage 11 days later; but, in the meantime, they ... Read more

We flew in Barcelona a few days early to visit before our cruise. This was our fifth cruise with Princess. Our embarkation was very quick and efficient. Once on board we found our cabin easily. Our room steward was there minutes after our ... Read more

We've cruised over 23 times with Princess, but this was our (my husband and myself) first Mediterranean Cruise and Transatlantic crossing. Positives: The ship is beautiful; everything is clean and new. There were approx 4000 passengers ... Read more

We are experienced cruisers, principally with Cunard. On this occasion, we travelled on our own prior and after the cruise. Our overall experience with this cruise and mainly with Regal Princess was quite disappointing. Past contributors ... Read more

Pros: Beautiful ship. I didn't mind the lack of stairs in the mid-section. We didn't find a staff member that wasn't pleasant and helpful, esp. the spa staff. Serving sizes in the restaurant were good. Smaller than a regular restaurant ... Read more

The Ship - The Regal Princess is a gorgeous ship. The use of wood and earth tones throughout gives it an elegant yet warm and welcoming feel. Areas of the ship were easy to locate. Our cabin was located in the back of the ship so it was ... Read more

Having traveled on the Royal Princess last November, we knew the Regal Princess was the ship for us to get married on October 10, 2014. From the first call booking the wedding/cruise, to walking down the aisle, it was stress free and ... Read more

I went on my first cruise this year in September, aboard the Regal Princess on its Maiden season. It lived up (if not superseded) my high expectations! From the minute I stepped aboard I loved it. We were on the 14th deck (I think ... Read more

Being a seasoned cruiser and never having gone to Europe, we selected this Mediterranean Cruise, because of its ports and the dates coincided with our 30th Anniversary. Embarkation was swift and easy we were in our stateroom by 11:50, the ... Read more

First, we found the check in process rather cumbersome for people that went to the extra expense of purchasing a mini suite. While full suite and elite passengers were afforded expedited boarding, I felt that for the extra $1200 or so we ... Read more

Breaking this into easily digestable sections: The ship: Regals obviously looks pleasing to the eye but don't let it fool you, despite the fancy new atrium and attractive fittings is a flawed ship (see scores for Royal). It has tried to ... Read more

We did the 12 day cruise starting from Barcelona and had a great time. We had not been cruising on this scale for many years so can not make a comparison with other lines but it felt almost perfect to us. Our stateroom was a mini suite ... Read more

Our cruise experience was significantly affected by the loss of luggage for our adult daughter who was traveling with us. The ship itself was large but never felt like you had to walk miles to get anywhere. There were usually enough ... Read more
