Contrary to some of the reviews I have seen, I found the ship to be in excellent condition. All carpets and chairs looked new and all venues were well maintained. Embarkation and disembarkation both went very smoothly with no waiting at ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary which Princess offered. Mainly the Normandy Beach excursion. I booked off ship excursions which I recommend. Food was below average. Service in the main dining rooms were very slow and not ... Read more

We were very excited about our first cruise which has probably turned out to be our last. There are parts of cruising my wife and I simply do not enjoy. Mainly the crowds, the limited exposure to an area - only getting a short stay at ... 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

Friends invited us on this cruise, and it was lovely catching up with them. Norway is magnificent, beautiful scenery. Cruise was expensive so I was expecting great things. Unfortunately not. First drinks ordered were a fiasco, ... Read more

The Emerald Princess is indeed a beautiful ship. Embarkation and disembarkation at the end of the cruise was efficient and swift. The décor throughout is excellent. So why only 3*? Well, to start with, when one orders a ... Read more

We chose this trip for the itinerary and had a wonderful time. The experience onboard was just average, but provided convenient transportation to Ireland, N. Ireland, Scotland, and one day in France. Following a pre-visit to London, we ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. The stops were great, used other tours for most of the stops because of what they offered. Princess tours were huge and rushed. The stops were: Guernsey, Cobh, Dublin, Liverpool, Belfast, ... Read more

Princess had some good, some medium and some really bad things. The good was the food in the buffet and the pizza(this coming from a pizza snob New Yorker). The main dining room had poor service and food that was so bland and poor that it ... Read more

Overall we had an excellent experience on the Caribbean Princess. A few things to take note of. Unlike the other cruise lines we have sailed on, the orange juice at breakfast must be poured by the wait staff. It is not available for ... Read more

I strongly agree with all the points that a previous contributor-'cherub flashpoint', has already noted; impolite security staff who have no ability to smile, waiting staff that hound you constantly for drinks( God help you if you try to ... Read more

We always wanted to visit the British Isles and after doing some research, it turned out that Princess had the best itinerary for us. May was the perfect month for us as we didn't want to be there during the heat of the summertime or when ... Read more

This was booked late at a reduced price as the timing, Southampton departure and ports not previously visited suited us. We have previously cruised about 12 times, twice before with Princess so felt confident about the cruise. However, ... Read more
