We have been on the Royal before and think she is a great ship. The major issue is that on Royal you cannot walk around the whole outside of deck 7 Promenade like you can on other Princess ships. Service was great and our room steward ... Read more

Embarkation was easy in Rome and our cabin size was as expected & comfortable. The balcony is a bit small but adequate. We used anytime dining and as we were happy to share never waited very long. The restaurant food was patchy and ... Read more

We did b2b Rome to Athens and Athens to Athens. Great time to travel and the weather was perfect. Embarkation was a breeze and we were on the ship in no time. The ship itself is beautiful. Although there were crew varnishing parts of ... Read more

We hadn't taken a Princess cruise for a few years and were really excited to try a brand new ship. The Majestic is beautiful and sparkling without being gaudy. We knew that there might be problems to be worked out on a new ship, and ... Read more

We travelled down by train from Rome for a mere €5 fare and decided to walk in the sunshine from Civiavecchia train station to the dock gate. It is almost a mile, but on level ground and manageable in half an hour, even for us ... Read more

We are big fans of the Royal Caribbean and Celebrity format, but last year we sailed on the Emerald Princess because the price was reasonable and we hadn't done the itinerary before. We rather enjoyed the Emerald, particularly the happy ... Read more

What a wonderful cruise with an attentive, personable crew that made our transatlantic cruise one of our best (of many). The main dining room food was well prepared, served at the correct temperature in almost all cases, well presented and ... Read more

This amazing small ship, the Pacific Princess, is from another era. As previous reviews have noted, this ship is great with less than 700 passengers on board at any given time. However, the ship needs some renovation and that is scheduled, ... Read more

If you like cozy and getting to know your fellow passengers and crew as well as visiting ports off the usual grid, then this ship is for you. Cabins are slightly larger too with lots of storage and closet space. Even the bath had plenty ... Read more

We chose this cruise at the end of the season to avoid crowded ports and we liked the idea of a small ship, 629 passengers. We loved the relaxed atmosphere and the crew on this ship, it was purchased from the Renaissance line and ... Read more

We have sailed Princess four previous times and have been extremely pleased. This time, not so much. The Royal had just got out of dry dock prior to its Rome departure. It should have stayed there a while longer. It was not ready for a ... Read more
