We chose this Scandinavian cruise as it is a part of the world I have always wanted to visit, and Emerald Princess happened to be there. We visited Zeebrugge, Copenhagen and Oslo, and had a visit to Helsinborg in Sweden aborted due to bad ... Read more

This is our third cruise from San Francisco to Alaska. We are from Sacramento, CA and our travel agency provided free bus transportation to S.F. and return. We loaded our baggage onto the bus in Sacramento and it was delivery to our ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we had looked on cruise critic to see what our experience might be like. This seems like the kind of thing that is on everyone's bucket list and talking with other passenger's confirmed this. Overall, we are ... Read more

I now know that I'm not a fan of big box cruises. The Regal is huge and jam packed. Not my thing. However, if you fancy big crowds, lots of flash aka Vegas, then it's the cruise for you. The staterooms are well appointed, yet small. I ... Read more

We planned a family trip for 10 people and 4 more family members joined us. We selected the Alaska destination because most of us had never been to Alaska and the trip was planned for June. We were a diverse group ranging in age from ... Read more

This was a bucket list item, and Princess had the itinerary we wanted. They appear to be one of the only cruise lines that offer this itinerary and that is why we choose them. We had not cruised with Princess in the past. We loved the ... Read more

Just back from a 7 day cruise aboard the Royal Princess departing from Barcelona and ending in Rome. This was our first time on a Princess ship. Previously, we have sailed on RC and Disney. We were traveling with our 15 yr old son so I ... Read more

This was our 11th cruise since April 2004, which ironically was on the Caribbean Princess. We have been on 3 Princess cruises and again, ironically, all on Caribbean Princess. My sister-in-law and I turn 50 years of age this year, so our ... Read more

Chose this cruise line because of the ports (7 in all) we would visit. Not disappointed. Best cruise I have taken thus far. Whatever good you have heard about Princess is true. Best dining ever including the main dining rooms, good ... Read more

This was our third cruise with the Princess Cruise line. Our past cruises with this company were quite memorable. But this time things were slightly less fantastic. Our cabin was clean and comfortable and the service people aboard the ... Read more

The ports on this cruise were of interest to us. Embarkation was the easiest of any cruise we have been on. We chose to book all of our shore excursions independently, we were pleased with all of our excursions. We were not pleased ... Read more

We sailed as a family of 9 to Alaska. We had a one year old grandchild, our 5 kids (mid 20's to 30), my husband and I (50's), plus my elderly mother (80). I was worried before we left that our wide range of interests and ages would leave ... Read more

This cruise, aboard Royal Princess, is certainly one that the cruise line can boast: a ship beautifully appointed and maintained; a staff worthy of recognition; fascinating ports and professionally escorted excursions! With 23 cruises ... Read more

My husband & I traveled with 10 other family members. This was my 3rd time with Princess but my 19th cruise. Yes I am very blessed :-) We were in balcony cabin A501 on Deck 12. The cabin itself was very roomy with plenty of storage. ... Read more

Our first time cruising. We were on Deck 11, Baja, and the room was great with the balcony. Our steward was very accommodating and helpful. Always called us by our last name respectfully. Our only glitch was at the Victoria, BC, ... Read more

Alaska was always on the bucket list, but travelling from the UK we wanted to make the flights worthwhile so chose to leave from San Francisco rather then Vancouver or Seattle. We didn't have time to explore San Fransico before sailing but ... Read more

I would have to say this was hands down the worst cruise my husband and I have ever been on. My husband summed it up best by saying it was extremely underwhelming. The ship itself was pretty good, it's an older ship and could use to be ... Read more

Our family group of 16 just got off the Grand Princess after ten wonderful days in Alaska and Victoria. This was my second time to Alaska and it was just as fun as the first. This time we went to the newer port, Icy Strait Point, and ... Read more

I chose this cruise to explore Alaska. The ship itself was great but the embarkation was absolutely terrible. Huge lines in customs and even that we had booked a penthouse suite, we were all in a very long line. The Cabin was very ... Read more

Embarkation at Seattle: Easy. Line always kept moving. Room was ready when we got there. Service: Exceptional. I’m not one who usually goes for being “pampered,” but I felt like a king (or a prince since this is ... Read more

This extended family of 8 cruise was my mother's wish to celebrate her 80th birthday. As first time cruisers, my husband and I were already wanting to do it again before we disembarked! We can't say enough about the Discovery/Animal Planet ... Read more

In January 2016 we found out about this cruise to the British Isles. A stop in LeHavre/Normandy is what sold us on it. Finally time to go! We flew to Heathrow and took the National Express bus down to Winchester for two nights before ... Read more
