Third time on Princess-many other cruises for us on Royal Carribean, Norwegian and Crystal. Pretty good food overall-afternoon tea definitely worth it though service could be improved-not attentive at beginning then rushing diners at end. ... Read more

This is the second time we have cruised with the Princes Line. Unfortunately we were disappointed. I would not cruise again with the Golden Princes. The majority of staff were not friendly. Quite rude in fact. The entertainment was ... Read more

First, a caveat. I assume a lot of people like Princess. After two cruises, we do not. We are Celebrity Elite status cruisers and find Princess no match for Celebrity. So, maybe my comments will help others who are not sure what line to go ... Read more

Princess is my favorite cruise lines. Crown Princess is NOT up to the high standards set by Princess. Nowhere is this more evident than in their 7 night cruise to the Mexican Riveria. Pay special attention to the actual time this ... Read more

We didn't pick this cruise for our first cruise. My family picked it and we decided to tag along. It was a nice ship, the staff were super, and I did enjoy it. But 5 days at sea were a little long for me. My sister thought it wasn't long ... Read more
