We enjoyed the cruise. The food, service and entertainment on board Caribbean Princess ranged from adequate to excellent. Embarkation and disembarkation were really slick and the cruise itself had an interesting itinerary. We were ... Read more

The cruise itinerary was mostly quite good (with the exception of Corner Brook, Newfoundland), the ship was well appointed, and the crew, mostly, did a very good job. In particular, the spa and exercise areas and staff were awesome But, ... Read more

I didn't know what to expect of this ship, as it had mixed reviews. I found the ship a little dated, but clean and adequate. The average age of the passengers was about 70+. There was no activity in the night clubs at night. We ... Read more

The Caribbean Princess is a large ship but easy to navigate. The food was above average for cruise fare, both in the Horizon Court and the main dining rooms. The biggest complaint is the lack of availablde AnyTime Dining seating. Rarely ... Read more

My first cruise on Princess was a short repositioning cruise from LA to Vancouver. I found it a mixed experience. The Ruby is beautiful, loaded with features and amenities. Some staff are very helpful while others border on ... Read more

We heard wonderful things about Princess Cruises. We were seeking a birthday celebration close to home and decided on Crown Princess before it dry docked. Big mistake. Embarkation was postponed. Room was slightly larger but mattress felt ... Read more

My wife and I sailed on the Royal Princess along with her sister and 94 year old mother. As platinum level Princess cruisers, we're fairly experienced on the Crown class of ship, and were really interested to experience the newest class. ... Read more

This was our first Princess cruise ... the bottom line is that we had an enjoyable time in general but experienced several small issues that could be easily corrected. We booked a mini-suite and found it to be exceptionally spacious with ... Read more

My wife & I were not overly impressed with this Royal Princess experience. It was an experience of some great moments, punctuated with some serious stuff ups. I'm generous to give an overall score of 6/10. Value for money: 4/10. ... Read more

Itinerary was fine, but the ship was nothing to write home about. We found the food a big disappointment. Often it wasn't warm, and seldom was it worth eating. The ice cream, which is usually a treat was worse than McDonalds. We were in a ... Read more

This was our 10th cruise, in 26 years, so we're not the regulars that some posters are. We have cruised twice before with princess,last cruise 2003, and our biggest complaint was the constant hounding to buy something. Thankfully, that ... Read more

Due to airline issues, we arrived in Quebec City a day late (Princess was in port over night), but when we arrived the second day, we were hustled through embarkation very quickly. This was a great way to start our association with ... Read more

This is the second time taking this cruise. The first time was on the Ruby's sister ship, Crown Princess. These ships carry a little over 3000 passengers and I suspect the Ruby was full. Our flights from home took most of the day and we ... Read more

Can't believe I sailed on the Royal for the 3rd time after the first encounter on the Royal but it was for the itinerary. I was traveling with a travel agent friend who doesn't cruise much. Can't say the ship is bad (it is beautiful) but ... Read more

6th cruise. I’ve noticed a trend--- we make more friends with crew than fellow passengers and there was mutual recognition from previous ships. Several members from our last cruise on the Grand remembered us. The staff is 99% super ... Read more

Just back from 7 nights on the Royal. All the complaints are correct - the missing stairs from 7 and up are a hassle. We gave up on riding down to dinner and walked the aft stairs.Overall it was a good time because there is much to like ... Read more

We decided to go on a cruise on the Royal, as we are booked next April for a Transatlantic cruise and we wanted to make sure this was the ship we wanted to sail on. The Royal was indeed a grand ship. Although she was larger than the other ... Read more

We chose Royal Princess for our Canada & New England cruise because it was a new ship and we wanted to try it. As Platinum cruisers we had been on most of the others. The cruise experience was disappointing, from the lack of oceanview ... Read more

First, let me preface my review by stating that my opinion of the ship and the cruise is soley based on my experience, and will probably differ from other cruisers who were on the same cruise as I was. Embarkation at the Brooklyn Cruise ... Read more

Having cruised with several other cruiselines (Oceania, Celebrity, HAL, NCL, MSC) we like to rate a new experience against them. We experienced Princess on this cruise as much better then HAL, NCL and MSC (which are all considerable ... Read more
