This is a difficult email to write because I was greatly looking forward to my cruise on the RP. Without getting too in depth, I will list some of my greatest grievances in no particular order. -Terrible entertainment (not including the ... Read more

My wife and I are first time Princess cruisers. We have cruised dozens of times in the past but always with other lines. We chose this cruise based solely on the itinerary. The cruise part......food, ports, dining service, shows and ... Read more

This was my first cruise, and was taken as a family vacation. We were a party of seven and ages ranged from 30-60, which seemed about par for the ship. Apparently our sailing had more children than usual and the announcements during ... Read more

We chose this cruise largely because we wanted to visit Japan and Korea and the choices were very limited given our schedule. Let's get down to the brass tacks and discuss the problems with this cruise. Staterooms - We had two ... Read more

We were hoping for the best when we booked a mini suite for this fairly pricey cruise and were surprised that it was excellent. I was last on the Caribbean Princess in 2006 and found that the ship has aged very little and is in good shape, ... Read more

Best Days Are Behind Her... My wife and I have taken 4 cruises to Alaska over the years, but when our extended family asked us to go again, we agreed. We sailed on the Grand Princess. What looked new-fangled and sparkly during our ... Read more

We chose this 14 day cruise for its itinerary as we had only every visited Bruges before. Never started a cruise from Southampton due to the difficulties of getting down from the North driving with a stopover was our best option to ensure ... Read more

Had a fabulous cruise to the Baltic. All ports of call were excellent. The standard of service was great. And the staff went well beyond the call of duty to ensure you had a great cruise. The food on board was excellent but some of the ... Read more

Star Princess was a worthy ship. Basically when choosing between the different itineraries, I was looking for Anchorage to Vancouver. I was very happy with the itinerary, stopping at Hubbard Glacier, Glacier Bay, Skagway, Juneau and ... Read more

This will be a lengthy, transparent, and fair review but anyone considering to go on a Princess cruise should read this to help make their decision. My family and I just returned from a 7 day Alaskan cruise on the Star Princess with ... Read more

This is my first review. I am a first time British cruiser, 36 years old professional chap, who was, as I suspect many are, a little bemused by the number of alarmingly poor reviews on this site. It does make me wonder why some people go ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we have wanted to visit Japan for a long time and this fit nicely with the land part of our holiday. It was our first and likely our last Princess cruise. Our first impression was ok. The embarkation was ... Read more

We have always wanted to cruise through the Panama Canal. When the time and opportunity came up, we booked it. Going through the canal was spectacular...a once in a lifetime experience. To think that this was built over 100 years ago ... Read more

My husband and I took three of our adult children on this cruise. We spent four days prior to the sailing in London which helped with jetlag. It was an older crowd on the ship but since there were only two at sea days, it was fine. We ... Read more

We had previously enjoyed a Princess cruise. The price was very good and ports seemed interesting. Northern Europe is a challenging itinerary to visit on your own. But a cruise makes it easy to experience many countries in a short period. ... Read more

This was our first cruse, and we decided on Princess at the recommendation of a friend, and the available dates we wanted to travel. We were skeptical first time cruisers. We thought we would be bored, that there would't really be much ... Read more

Alaska is a beautiful, must see destination. Seeing it from a cruise ship is not the most ideal, but it is convenient and fun. The first day and a half is spent at sea with nothing to really see. Ketchikan is not the best port and we ... Read more

This was our third time on a Princess Cruise ship and our 21st cruise so far. The Coral Princess was a bit disappointing because of its “tired” look and feel in about 60% of the ship. The only reason we choose Princess for ... Read more
