Our experience on the Coral Princess was top notch from embarkation to debarkation. Embarkation was fast, organized, and smooth. Cabins were ready immediately unlike our previous experiences on Norwegian. The ship was up to date, ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary with our entire family (19 of us) on 7/27/16 & we wanted to be on the ship on that day. We also chose it as we felt there would be more for the kids to do. ... Read more

This was a family holiday on the Emerald Princess, which suited our required holiday dates. We thought the ship was in good order, clean and tidy - very similar to P&O's Ventura and Azura. Embarkation was first class, as was ... Read more

We chose this cruise as we wished to go from the UK rather than fly and we had cruised with Princess twice in the past. Emerald Princess and P&O's Ventura are identical ships built in the same shipyard. I looked to go with P&O on ... Read more

Alaska is beautiful. Had a great time. It was only my second cruise, but already I'm turning into a more discriminating cruise-o-phile! Had traveled previously on the Celebrity Solstice last year to NZ. This was our first trip to Alaska ... 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

Having previously cruised (with Princess) on our Honeymoon, we decided to do so again for our 10th Anniversary - this time, with our children (5 and 7) too!! We were very pleased with our previous Princess cruise, although we primarily ... 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 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 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
