I chose this Cruise line because there are quite a few older people on the Princess lines. My mother, who was on her first cruise, is 85 and I wanted her aound more people that were her age . She had a great time and loved the cruise. ... Read more

What a beautiful ship. We had sailed on its sister ship, the Regal Princess, and the layout, and in fact much of the decor was identical. Our balcony room was nice, but seemed smaller than usual. Leizal kept it spotless for us. We are ... Read more

I will start off by saying this was the most unfriendliest crew I have ever seen on any of my cruises. There was no cheerful hellos and it seemed as if the crew had been yelled at before we got on. I don't know what the problem was but ... Read more

Our second NZ cruise. One different port ,Picton. Enjoyed onboard activities, did our own thing for tours, found most onboard offered tours too expensive. Food was excellent, we dined any time, buffet and dining room. Entertainment was ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was going to places not seen before and ship was recommended by friends. Compared with other ships, we found Diamond Princess too big, our cabin too far from facilities. (800 metres to go to breakfast)! ... Read more

We chose this cruise as we wanted a full transit of the Panama Canal and we only needed to fly 1 way as our travel agent, Zoe of Zoe Cruises and tours provided buses for those of us living in the Sacramento Valley to the cruise terminal. ... Read more

Ship was very nice. It has some aging but nothing that interferes with a good trip. The staff was fabulous!! Don't do anytime dining. Princess just can't seem to get it right. If it assigned, get on board and go immediately to the ... Read more

Many cutbacks and they are missed. For example, the dining menu used to include steak as a daily alternative. It was changed to beef medalions. NOW we have hamburger as a daily alternative. Menu is too fancy and just for those trying to ... Read more

My husband and I are more of the stateroom hugger type. I love sitting on my balcony chair and watch the sea go by. He just loves the peace and quiet. (We were in much need for relaxation time!) We didn't do any excursions this trip but ... Read more

This was our second cruise on the Golden Princess and not a lot had changed in 12 months. Apart from our cabin steward, who was great, most of the other staff we dealt with seemed to be suffering from the after effects of the big storm in ... Read more

The itinerary was the draw for this cruise. 29 nights around Australia. WOW it was great. Due to the length of the cruise it was mostly seniors and I only saw a hand full of kids. This was also know as the hop on hop off cruise because ... Read more

Round Australia itinerary was a perfect close to our touring of the more visited areas on land. We often do private tours, but the ships tours were very good, but a bit more expensive which is typical of cruise ship tours. Some port ... Read more

Wanted to cruise from Australia and had never visited these areas. Started our holiday with two nights in Sydney at the Phillip Street Travelodge. Excellent location and easy to get to Cruise Port. We have previously cruised on the ... Read more

We were a group of five couples sailing from Port Everglades to the Eastern Caribbean. We stopped in three ports. Amber Cove, in the Dominican Republic, was the first stop. Several in our group took tours and were saddened to see the ... Read more

We chose this cruise for a couple of the ports it was going to. Debarkation was always a mess and getting help was impossible. This ship is to large. Our account had charges on it for stuff we didn't even order. I asked at the shore ... Read more

We chose this trip when it went on sale in December. We had done the Valparaiso - Buenos Aires three years ago. We booked as we like long cruises with sea days. BUT not this time. We like sea days because Princesses has always had ... Read more

This was our first cruise, and is likely to be our last. On paper embarkation and disembarkation were well-organised. However the queues were horrendous. We did not expect to be treated as passengers on a poor-quality budget airline. ... Read more

Picked this cruise because it was a 10 cruise to the deep Caribbean. The Royal is a very nice ship. Lots to do and well laid out. I love the central court and all that goes on around it. Dining was very good in the Horizon Cafe and I ... Read more

This was our 24th cruise and having sailed on the Regal cruise in November we were hoping the Royal would live up to the high standards that the Regal set for us. The Royal did not disappoint. So on to the review and then plenty of ... Read more

Loved the ship, food and service were very good. Embarkation went smoothly considering we arrived at the peak time. Our room was ready and our room stewart was great. We asked for a top sheet on the bed and had one that evening. He was ... Read more

We chose The Royal Princess because of our previous cruises on this ship. The addition of the stairs in the forward area was a big improvement. It is still a difficult ship to navigate because of the size. Getting to the Allegro dinning ... Read more
