We chose Royal Princess for our New England/Canada cruise because it was new, even though we were a bit concerned with some of the adverse comments on Cruise Critic. Unfortunately the reviews were mostly correct. Despite the fact that ... Read more

Let me start with dinning, originally we selected 6:00 pm setting but it was changed to 5:30 pm. Service was slow, we waited over 40 minutes for main course. Our waiter kept saying kitchen line is long. Later we discovered that management ... Read more

Background Information The Canada/New England itinerary had been on our to-do list for several years. We chose this particular sailing because it started in Quebec City, and we really wanted to spend time there pre-cruise (instead of ... Read more

I'm in my 70s and live in Brooklyn. I prefer to take trips from Red Hook and Cape Liberty. Manhattan is my third choice, and I'd rather not take a plane to the boat unless I'm going to Alaska. Embarkation: We got there early, and were ... Read more

We have done 32 cruises and this was our first Princess cruise. From beginning to end we enjoyed the cruise. We were on deck 12. The ship is new and beautifully appointed. The balcony cabins are a bit small but not uncomfortable. The ... Read more

Embarking was a pleasure!! Quick & room ready! The ship is beautiful and nicely designed. The dining rooms were center so the walk from dinner to the show was shorter than other ships that have the dining room aft. The theatre is small ... Read more

This was our first cruise on Princess. We chose the Royal Princess because of being new and large. I think they were wonderful to cruise with. I had traveled with Celebrity Solstice last year and wondered if they would be as good. I was ... Read more

I highly recommend taking a Canadian cruise in October - the weather is refreshing and the colors fantastic! The Ruby Princess served us well. We enjoyed the spread of food and the Canadian ports. Disappointments were that it was too windy ... Read more

I had booked this cruise without reading the reviews. After reading some of the reviews, I was scared to death. I found many of the complaints to be very silly. This is my 3rd Princess cruise and this is definitely the nicest ship of the ... Read more

Yes, I read the reviews before our cruise but thought maybe we would not be as irritated by the issues we read, so off we go on a 7 day cruise from hell. After a 1.5 hour ride to the pier from LaGuardia we waited in line for over 2 hours ... Read more

We sailed in a Deluxe Balcony Cabin, two of us (myself and wife, age 37 and 36). Overall, I would give the cruise 4 of 5 stars, there were a couple of issues that stood out as negatives, but taken in total it was an excellent cruise. The ... Read more

Well today we returned from the cruise. First I'd like to say it's been the worst cruise I've been on. It wasn't a disaster, but a lot went wrong. Boarding the ship was a bit of a disappointment, seemed to take a lot longer than normal. ... Read more

This was our first cruise after cruising to Hawaii! I guess that we took it way too soon after such a wonderful trip! However, now that we have been home a week, we are starting to see how good this cruise really was. At first everything ... Read more

We have just returned from a 10 night New England and Canada cruise on Emerald Princess. We have not cruised with Princess for 9 years and sad to say we found that standards had slipped during that time. Nothing wrong with the layout of ... Read more

If you are familiar with Princess ships, they are all the same layout, which makes one feel right at home when you board. This cruise left from the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal where there is long term parking available. We drove to the ... Read more
