The Sun Princess basically should be scrapped. It is well past its use by date even after a two week $30 Million refit. The only two things that it had going for it were it's general staff, whom were fantastic all of them and the food ... Read more

Short itinerary and date was ideal - especially as we went as far South as Lisbon. Travelled down a couple of days in advance just to elongate the holiday, stayed near Romsey at the Potter Heron Hotel - very good, visited Romsey Abbey, ... Read more

We were on the Regal April 10 -17 for a Western Caribbean itinerary. Prior to the cruise, we spent 3 nights at the Residence Inn in Fort Lauderdale, which was a great way to relax. We enjoyed watching manatees off of their dock while ... Read more

I had never cruised Princess before and wanted to give it a try. I probably won't go this route again, unless it's a VERY good deal. The food was very good most of the time in the dining room. Desserts were very good. Wait service was ... Read more

This was the tale of two cruises. The good days were really good and the bad days were really bad. I have been so excited for this cruise but unfortunately we had a norovirus outbreak and I got it the second day of the cruise. Upon ... Read more

I work at a school and my mom and I decided to take a trip over my spring break. We flew to Ft. Lauderdale and made our way easily via a taxi to the ship. Embarkation was quick and effortless. Our cabin was Aloha 326 and we loved ... Read more

Experienced cruiser - second time on Princess, first time on the Regal. Embarkation- Port Everglades is not very convenient - horrible traffic jams on arrival to the port that delayed our arrival. Once we got near the terminal, there ... Read more

This was my 9th Princess cruise and the first time I've sailed on the Royal Class ships. I concur with other reviewers that the three glaring things were the lack of midship stairs (it's a huge ship and really needs them), the shrimpy ... Read more

It was our second time on Ruby Princess, but the first cruise to Hawaii. We had a great time overall. The ship is old, but clean and not too big. The piazza is smaller then Regal or Royal Princess. We had balcony room on deck14 and it was ... Read more

We are long time Princess cruisers (family of four) and we were delighted to cruise on the relatively new Royal Princess. I won't go into embarkation details since as Preferred Guests, it was easy for us. But I will say to allow time if ... Read more

We sailed on the Regal Princess for their Spring Break cruise from March 20 - 27, 2016 to the Western Caribbean. We arrived around 10 am and were in the top 50 - 75 passengers waiting to get on the ship. They opened the doors at 11 am ... Read more

Having read a couple of negative reviews I feel compelled to balance it, in favour or Princess who, in our opinion were impeccable. There is one recent review that frankly after reading the 6th sub heading I stopped, and it says to me ... Read more

Compared to our first sailing with Princess, this ship did a fine job with service. The Caribbean Princess was also in better condition. On the Grand Princess (sailed 2011), the stewards and dining room staff were so overworked they ... Read more
