We received an email stating that boarding would be delayed and not to arrive until 5:00 pm. Since we live close, this wasn't a problem. We did show up a little earlier as a friend said that they boarded with no problem. Our boarding ... Read more

After several cruises, we decided to go for a transatlantic one and see how we would like so many days at sea. We liked it a lot! We live in Florida and rented a car through Budget for drop off near the cruise pier. This worked real ... Read more

This cruise was not all that bad but it wasn't all that great either. Past Princess cruisers we met on board asked us to give Princess another go. We cruise based mainly on highest value - lowest price for high quality. Pros: The ... Read more

We were on the CP for the transatlantic after it came out of drydock. We have been on the CP twice before, and thought I'd post my opinion of some of the changes, good and bad. Hits - New beds very comfortable, new layout for buffet ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we like the transatlantic cruises and the ports of call this cruise offered. There were quite a few issues on this cruise as it was just coming off of dry dock and a lot of things were overlooked. The front ... Read more

This was our first Transatlantic voyage. The renovations to the ship were very noticeable as we had sailed twice before. Enjoyed the BBQ based Planks restaurant which replaced the Horizon buffet. They had great tasting options for ... Read more

Chose this cruise to get to Ireland. We have sailed about 18 times with Princess. The newly refurbished updated Horizon Court was very nicely appointed. The problem was the food at lunch was not very good. There was not much variety and it ... Read more

We had an adequate transatlantic crossing. It had some good points, but overall was just OK. We've been on 22 cruises and traveled many lines, some luxury and some mass market, but this was our first time on Princess. First the things ... Read more

This was a repositioning cruise and since we had never done a transatlantic cruise,we decided to try one. The price was an excellent value and one too good to pass up and not do it. The ship was just coming out of dry dock so we were the ... Read more

My husband chose this cruise though we had never cruised with Princess before, due to the itinerary. We had lived in Florida until two years ago so we had no need to explore Fort Lauderdale. Getting onboard was long and tiring even though ... Read more

We have always loved Trans Atlantics but found this one to have a lack of germ control. There was a lot of coughing and lack of hand washing on the ship. There were broken hand washing stations limiting access to sinks entering the ... Read more

We choose our cruises using a combination of itinerary, overall cost, anticipated weather, on board credits and other perks offered. This transatlantic crossing offered some mild weather (a relief from our cold winter) by starting in Fort ... Read more

This is our fifth eastbound transatlantic. It was the coldest and cloudiest of all our transatlantic cruises. The Regal is well designed and for the most part we had a very smooth crossing. The public areas were clean, the entertainment ... Read more

My spouse and I had never done a Transatlantic cruise together and it was on our bucket list. We flew into Miami a day early and decided to take Uber to Ft Lauderdale. Best decision ever - it took the Uber driver 3 minutes to pick us up ... Read more

Decided to take a short cruise mid year before our 15 day transatlantic in October and wanted to visit a couple of ports we actually haven't been to. There aren't many left. So we chose this one since it visited Roatan and Belize - new ... Read more

We were in Balcony Riviera 703....lovely room, without a sofa, and great balcony. However, I picked one that vibrated constantly....not terribly and you do did get used to it. It was beside the back stairway/elevators and super location ... Read more

We were excited to be exploring Aruba, Columbia, and the Panama Canal. We boarded our ship and checked out our room, and got even more excited because the room was of good size, clean and the steward was outgoing. Then it was time for the ... Read more

We wanted to see the Panama Canal and Princess was one of the few lines that was suitable for us given our tight calendar limitations. We have taken numerous cruises on all the other major lines, but this was our first on Princess. We ... Read more

Chose this cruise to revisit the Panama Canal. Itinerary was okay beyond that - too short a stay at a favorite island - Aruba - 7:30 am - noon. Not even enough time to go to one of my favorite beaches - Eagle Beach. Now about the ... Read more
