We choose this cruise for the ports of call, which were all good. But the ship albeit shiny new and very clean was very disappointing the entertainment was very poor, only one show all week, pianist on several times a day, boring after the ... 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 choose this cruise for the itinerary as we did a cruise with Princess last year at the same time. The service and dining were very good but room for improvement. One evening we waited a full hour for our main course. The Caesar salad ... 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

We scheduled this TA Cruise because we were visiting Italy for the 1st time for 8 nights before the Cruise. In the past our TA Cruise was 1st and then the vacation after the Cruise. This was much nicer being able to rest and relax at the ... Read more

We chose this cruise after sailing on the Regal Princess and being wowed by her. The experience on the Royal was vastly different though. Don't get me wrong, the ship is stunningly beautiful and the staff all top notch, no complaints ... Read more

I have sailed with Princess cruises several times and have always loved it. This time however, this was not the case. Princess seems to be cutting corners all over the place and while we (my sister and I) were expecting a wonderful ... Read more

We had done this in reverse in April 2015, had a great time then, expected the same. Although this was a nice cruise, it definitely was not stellar. Embarkation was smooth, as was disembarkation, but several things were not. The ... Read more

We choose this cruise for the ports in Turkey and Malta. As results of the security situation in Turkey the cruise was rescheduled to other ports such as Corfu and Kotor. We were not happy with this change but understand why the the ... Read more

We had been anticipating our first family cruise for quite a while. With an early fall break for the kids due to Eid, this seemed like the perfect time to get to some great ports of call. Original schedule had Rome, Istanbul, and Athens ... Read more

Desperately upset with Princess. Embarkation was flawless ... from there on it went down hill. At some point (probably during the frequent itinerary changes) my preferred cabin was changed without my knowledge. In the end I was ... Read more

Our fourth cruise, all with Princess, and our second this year, booked fairly late with a decent deal for a balcony room, but what a disappointment! This review comes on the back of a fabulous trip on the Star Princess around South America ... Read more

Princess Cruises has built the most dysfunctional and perhaps the poorest-designed ship I have ever sailed on- a complete disappointment. I was lost the entire two weeks we cruised the Med. First of all, there is very limited outdoor ... Read more
