We chose Princess because our friends have raved about their many cruises, and we were not disappointed. We flew in from upstate NY and spent a few days in Key Largo, then returned our car to the airport and caught a taxi to the ship. ... Read more

We boarded the ship for a 6 day cruise finding the embarkation and debarkation smooth and super efficient. The food was average to slightly above average for a cruise ship. What stands out above all else was the level of service. It was ... Read more

First of all, the Royal Princess is a very large ship. This didn't bother me. It is decorated beautifully, and in the hallways to the cabins, there are photos sent in by Princess passengers. Our Deck 11 mini-suite felt big, and was ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the interesting itinerary and the date was appealing to us. This was our second Princess cruise, the first being our August 2015 Coral Princess Alaska cruise. We booked rather close to the embarkation date ... Read more

We wanted to get away from the cold and this 10 day cruise fit the bill. We had never been to Dominica so there was something to look forward to. The Royal is a very pretty ship, but I really miss the Promenade deck. If you want to ... Read more

After 2 weeks on the Regal (Jan 8 and 15 2017), our preference for a bit smaller ships is reinforced. The Regal is lovely and her crew are great. However, the entertainment (ranging from game shows to Trivia to big theatre performances to ... Read more

This was our second time on Regal and our first time on Princess as Elite. Honestly, I don't think the Elite status had anything to do with it, but the service we received on this cruise from virtually every crew/staff member onboard was ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we love cruising. We have sailed with Princess on numerous occasions, and knew pretty much what to expect. We found the staff to be friendly and attentive, especially in the Club Class dining area and Crown ... Read more

This was our first time sailing on Princess. Our family had sailed with them many times and have great stories of their times so when they asked us to join them we thought why not and booked a Suite on Deck 9 forward. Overall the ... Read more

we were given a great discount on this cruise because our first Princess cruise was a mechanical disaster, 50% off the value of our last cruise towards this one. I noticed several restaurant and dining room staff bickering among themselves ... Read more

This cruise was selected by group consensus primarily based on port locations and cost. As I never had been on a Princess Cruise, we did not know what to really expect. I have been on other cruises with Carnival (Tropicale, Liberty), ... Read more

I rarely write a bad review but this one is 100% earned. I'm a bit stunned that Princess even allowed this ship to be on the water. The ship is in desperate need of being refurbished. I'm not even sure that's the answer. Princess has ... Read more

We have taken many cruises and used a number of different cruise lines. We chose this ship because it worked well with a direct flight from our home city, where you can never count on good flying weather. We like to book our flight ... Read more

This review underscores the need to have backup travel plans, especially when cruising in the winter. When our Plans A and B to fly to FLL went out the window, we moved on to Plan C—a 12-hour drive. Although driving was a slightly ... Read more

Back home now after a fabulous cruise and a far better experience than our Alaskan Star Princess experience last June, where we were disappointed with the overall service and very much so by the food. Here, I have to say the food from ... Read more

Why yes...the weather was not the greatest. Yes, we did have to skip the Dominican Republic due to gale force winds and the sun hid behind the clouds many days. However, the Commodore chose a longer, but calmer path for us to head to St. ... Read more
