Our suite flooded on the Island Princess during a Panama transit in February. Princess initially offered $100 compensation for 2 days loss of the unit. We pointed out it cost us $1,000 for 2 days. Eventually it was upped to $250 but had to ... Read more

The ship Princess Regal was beautiful, but the stateroom was not convenient for 4. The bunkbed setup was dangerous. The edges were sharp and we kept hitting our heads. There was definitely not enough outlets (just 2) for 4 people. When ... Read more

We loved the Regal. Nice ship with ample room for so many passengers. Beautiful! Crown Grill and Allegro have great steaks and specialty foods. The Horizon has variety but of course as Lido it has a lot of people and warm not hot food. ... Read more

Restaurant has to many fish dishes. Not as good as Celebrity. Horizon service was poor. Food very good. Need cushions on out door chairs. Entertainment very repetitive. Sure excursion expensive and often not good. Doesn't sound like ... Read more

Stayed in cabin C-102 which is on deck 10. Room was fine, except for: 1. Bed was too soft and sank significantly when I slept on it. 2. Cigarette smoke was smelt in our room during the morning hours. Appears to come from air ... Read more

We chose this cruise because the Canal was on our "bucket list" and the last minute deals to fill the cabins were excellent. We like the size of the Coral Princess but if you need water slides and discos into the night to ... Read more

Star Princess to Hawaii Sep 24 2016: The service was good. People were genuinely welcoming. If you are lucky you will get a cruise Captained by Michele Tuvo. Prepare to be amused, charmed and enamoured of him. You'll see. I'd book a ... Read more

Vancouver is easily accessible from our hometown of Kelowna, B.C. Better than having to travel to Ft. Lauderdale as we did for our last cruise. I found the cruise generally boring, however, my wife found it better than that. I guess I'm ... Read more

My wife and I have cruised over 50 times and we wanted to just get away for a week. The last time we cruised on Princess, we did the British Isles, 5 yrs ago and had a great time. So we decided to take the new Regal Princess. We chose a ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was r/t out of NYC and it didn't require that we fly. We are both seniors and after about 27 cruises, the ship is our destination. We are longtime Celebrity cruisers. We still enjoy Celebrity, but have ... Read more

We chose this cruise for our first-time cruise experience because it was short and because we thought it would be interesting to make two stops in Canada. The ship was well-maintained and the staff keeping our room clean was ... Read more

After an impressive cruise with Royal Princess earlier this year, we were very disappointed with this Ship particularly the Horizon Court buffet layout, quality, choices, and service. It seems you feel like a bunch of chicken running ... Read more

This was a Pacific coastal cruise--somewhere I wanted to see. It was vintage Princess, but the Coral Princess is very nice no matter what you may read in these reviews on Cruise Critic. Yes, there are a couple of chips, etc here and ... Read more

We chose this cruise mainly because it was from Southampton, in September and on Princess which we prefer. We enjoyed the cruise in the main but a couple of things we felt could have been better. Firstly could not fault the crew. They ... Read more

Chose this cruise because we wanted to see the Panama Canal and it embarked from our home city of Vancouver. Embarkation went smoothly but dis-embarkation took a while to get rolling but went smoothly once it started. Ship organized ... Read more

The main reason for doing this cruise was to revisit the Solomon Islands. The fact that it included various PNG Islands and Vanuatu was a bonus. We had sailed on Sun Princess previously and were interested in seeing how the upgrades had ... Read more

The Star Princess seems to be geared to shorter cruises - around 7 days. We were upgraded from deck 5 to deck 11, which was a lovely surprise. The Horizon Buffet section is very limited compared to the Dawn Princess which we did a 26 ... Read more

We have always wanted to see Alaska, especially the glaciers, so this seemed the perfect opportunity. Our embarkation went smoothie and we found our stateroom easily and we were thrilled with what we found. Unpacking was easy and there ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it suited where we wanted to go at a time we wanted to go. The ship itself is a nicely laid out ship although a bit tired. It was being repainted during the course of the voyage. The cabins were of average ... Read more
