Yes, there are parts of this cruise and this ship which weren't perhaps as good as other Princess cruises we had been on, but I have to disagree with some of the petty complaints that some of the other cruisers have put in the past (and ... Read more

We chose this cruise because the ports of the British Isles were just what we wanted. The ship is a little tired and probably due for refurbishment. We hired a driver in Belfast to take us around to family ancestry sites. Best thing ... Read more

Overall, the cruise was fine. First, the ports were places I always wanted to go and see. The weather for the most part was pretty good and the cities which we visited were extremely clean and the people were incredibly kind and ... Read more

Ports were the main attraction to us and the two other couples we traveled with. Especially fun I would say were Normandy, Kirkwall, Inverness, Dublin, Guernsey Islands, and Cobh. Entertainment and cruise staff were first rate, ... Read more

I chose this cruise because my family had never been to the British Isles but was familiar with the history of the cities and wanted to see it first hand. We had always heard of the beauty of Ireland and Scotland, the kindness (and humor!) ... Read more

We selected this cruise because of the Celtic destinations, and it did not disappoint.The beginning was a real positive as we encountered the most efficient boarding process we have encountered in 30+ cruises. I thought the customer ... Read more

This was an itinerary that was on my bucket list. Very port intensive. We felt France (LeHarvre) was a waist of time for this trip - it was a holiday and everything was closed. As far as the ship was concerned, things were clean, the ... Read more

Chose this cruise because we liked the itinerary. The itinerary is very good. All ports were very good, and gave a good sample of the UK. Food quality has slipped, Steaks no longer offered daily in the dining room. Cuts of meat ... Read more

We chose the cruise mainly for the destinations, which were just what we wanted; the timing was right and we thought we would try a bigger ship than previously. Also, very importantly, it sailed from Southampton. We were upgraded, ... Read more

We were very unhappy with the food. Besides having numerous entrees that we disliked, I was not able to eat my usual healthy choices. I generally eat eggs, yogurt, and berries for breakfast. The scrambled eggs tasted like salty powder. The ... Read more

The British Isles is a wonderful itinerary having a mix of larger cities (Dublin, Edinburgh) but also having more rural areas to explore in the Scottish Highlands. The Caribbean Princess is a wonderful ship. Only comment is vis-a-vis how ... Read more

Poor food quality throughout the ship, the worst we have had on any other cruise. The buffet has very few healthy food options and the coffee was terrible. Disembarkation through tenders slow and poorly organized. Most of the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. We thoroughly enjoyed each and every port we went into. We were not able to get into Cobh due to poor weather conditions. That was a disappointment. We found the crew to be courteous and ... Read more

We selected this cruise because of the ports of call. We do not stay with one cruise line, but rather choose our cruises based on ports of call. The ship is older, but all of the public areas have been renovated. There are new mattresses ... Read more

I read a review about Princess written by an Elite cruiser, I have to say that I agree with what she said so here goes. The good Crown Princess is a lovely ship, but there is a lot of wear and tear that needs addressing. The staff ... Read more

We liked the itinerary. We knew it was early in the season and would be chilly but that worked out ok, our oceanview cabin was small but adequate. Biggest issue was the uneven water flow of the shower, it went from ice cold to scalding. ... Read more
