It's hard not to compare to previous cruises on Celebrity Solstice but to sum up first Sun Princess is an older ship with older guests. Solstice excels on style and dining but that's not what matters , what does matter is "did we ... Read more

We last sailed on Princess about 20 years ago, and it was pretty dismal. That being said, it was the itinerary around Mexico which swung it for us this time after having some poor experiences on Carnival and Costa in recent years. Our ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the ports. The cabin was just ok. When we arrived there was black dust on the desk no ice and no bathrobes as we requested. We had to request several times from the cabin steward for ice and the bathrobes. ... Read more

We took this cruise as part of a longer holiday in South America. Frankly I am amazed at the two earlier whinging reviews published but then again, regular cruisers will recognise the types who never seem satisfied. It must be ... Read more

We chose this cruise as a New Year 'getaway'. We were on Deck 7 cabin D740. The bathroom didn't have a bath that didn't bother us but the size of the bathroom was very very small. The shower curtain was too short and continually wrapped ... Read more

Overall, the ship was amazing. The dining was a WOW!! Although the entertainment was average, with only 4 or 5 musicals, the ship still kept our family of 4 busy throughout the whole day. The sporting and fitness facilities on the ship ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of its suitability for our plans; ie we wanted to spend time in Beijing (seeing the Great Wall etc etc) and the Cruise Itinerary would see us right home (through Japan, Taipei, Bali etc) to Melbourne. That it ... Read more

We wanted to do a New England cruise, and stops in Newport and Boston were mandatory. This was the only cruise that visited both ports and worked well with our wallet and schedule. Trying Princess was also a plus, since our other cruises ... Read more

We chose this cruise around the top end because it visited the places, particularly in WA, which we had always wanted to see. Others had told us how great the cruise was. The ship itself is tired - it is being sold next May, so it ... Read more

The embarkation was the best we have had. The evening meal got off to a poor start. Steak pie in a pot was on the menu, and that was all you got - no potatoes, no vegetables. Was told there were vegetables in the pot. The pastry was cut ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to try the Princess cruise line, to check out a newer ship, and because we had never been to the Eastern Caribbean. I found this to be a beautiful ship. I was impressed mostly with two things: 1. ... Read more
