Having sailed on 3 previous Princess cruises, we were of the opinion that Princess was one of the best mid tier cruise companies offering good value for money overall. This was our first cruise on the Diamond Princess and overall we must ... Read more

It was interesting reading prior reviews about the Diamond Princess. If all were to be believed, I probably wouldn't have gone - lousy food, noisy engines, bad entertainment etc. Fortunately I ignored the majority of those whingers and ... Read more

This was our very first cruise so we didn't know what to expect. I had read reviews saying the Sun Princess was looking a little old but we didn't notice any wear or antiquated furniture. In fact we couldn't believe how clean everything ... Read more

This was our first cruise on Sun Princess and we found it to be a very pleasant ship to cruise on, not quite as modern as the Saphhire Princess, but like the Sea Princess it seemed to have a very welcoming feel to it! The pre-booked coach ... Read more

My husband and I took this cruise because of the itinerary. I'm in my early 50's and was considered young! We met some lovely people onboard but unfortunately it felt at times like we were on a floating convalescent home. The food in the ... Read more
