This 7day cruise was the 2nd of 2 back to back cruises on Royal Princess. We had started this journey with our "dream" of going to Malta being dashed with an unannounced change of itinerary by Princess. We were never advised of ... Read more

Our travels began with a couple of days in Rome. We booked the Albergo del Senato for our hotel. The hotel was wonderful. When we arrived about 10:00 a.m. We didn't think our room would be ready and they would store our luggage so we ... Read more

Booked with cruise.co.uk which was excellent as always. Good service and we got 2 nights in Rome for a lesser price than other companies were charging just for the 7 night cruise. Arrived at the Port very early but were allowed to check ... Read more

The Royal Princess is a great ship. The cinema under the stars was a marvellous moment to spend with the family every evening. All the staff was helpful, efficient, answered all our questions and made us feel at home. All the ... Read more

I chose this cruise because Canadian David Williams, a wonderful pianist/vocalist/composer, was guest entertainer. I met him when he was performing on Sea Princess approx 12 years ago and we have been in touch ever since, mainly whilst ... Read more

This was our first Mediterranean cruise. I've sailed with Celebrity 1x and Princess 3x in the Caribbean. We opted to go with Princess even though we saw mediocre reviews for this ship, Royal Princess. The itinerary and dates worked well ... Read more

Just a quickie for British cruisers joining the ship this summer. They don't have any Marmite on board, so bring your own to avoid disappointment. It has been available on my three previous cruises aboard, but I got caught out this ... Read more

This cruise, aboard Royal Princess, is certainly one that the cruise line can boast: a ship beautifully appointed and maintained; a staff worthy of recognition; fascinating ports and professionally escorted excursions! With 23 cruises ... Read more

Chose this cruise as part of our European holiday just myself and my husband. Whilst the ship is beautiful in decor and very bling it was extremely disappointing. The entertainment was boring and terrible and the food was just as ... Read more

Captain Rick was excellent. We got news of trouble in Istanbul but he monitored it and determined cruisers would be safe. Glad I got to see the Hagia Sophia. And again strong winds so we missed Valletta. But Ercolano in Naples (second time ... Read more

4th cruise with Princess. We have had good experiences in the past with Princess, but this one had a problem with the food quality. Essentially in the Horizon Court the food was often cold, over cooked and lacking in presentation. The ... Read more

Great cruise for me, my husband, his sister, and my aunt. Cabin--Stateroom was very nice, with a a great bed and several dual US/European outlets. We booked R525, 529, and 533 so we could connect balconies. Worked great...narrow, ... Read more

Wonderful, although port intensive cruise. Ship was beautiful, clean and service was amazing. There is plenty of things to do, and lots of ship to explore, but it was also easy to find a couple of favorite places. The ship is large ... Read more

Cabin: Our steward had 19 cabins in his responsibility, by himself without any assistant, so the cleanliness of our cabin (R725 – Deck 14) was pretty much elementary. The toilet disinfection was completely doubtful and toiletries ... Read more
