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

Princess has excellent level of customer care and organisation. Food superb. Plenty of options for eating. Lots going on throughout the whole cruise. We had a suite on the back with a lovely wrap around balcony, which we took full ... 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

Decided to to take the cruise to accompany my wife's sister for her 70 Bday. Shouldn't have. Have cruised on perhaps 7-8 different lines so I have some comparison. First the positives. The ship was clean and the staff worked hard to ... 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

We chose this cruise because of the ports it visited. We were excited to cruise Princess for the first time. The Royal Princess is nice, but not exceptional, as I thought it would be. Watch out for the dead zone on the 6th floor by the ... Read more

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
