We love to cruise and generally like to have a minimum number of sea days on our itinerary. As a result, we were a little hesitant to book a transatlantic cruise with a 7-day crossing fearing we'd be bored. Not the case! The Royal ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it stopped in many ports in Spain where my daughter is now living. We chose a Transatlantic because for a very busy working couple it was nice to start the cruise with some days at sea where we could totally ... Read more

My husband & I took this cruise because we've taken many cruises but never Trans-Atlantic. For the most part it was very enjoyable but i don't think I would do it again as it was too many sea days for us. The first week became a ... Read more

We chose this cruise, as we wished to do a transatlantic sailing, on a large ship. We also liked the ports of call. We stayed on the Baja floor, interior room. The room felt wider than other cruise lines, but it had depressions in the ... Read more

Mainly chose this cruise for the number of sea days, knowing it would be an older crowd. Also chose Princess, having cruised 20+times on a variety of ships and companies. The seas were excellent, the food was the best we have ever ... Read more

We loved the Caribbean Princess trip across the Atlantic. The staff was wonderful, all of them, and as busy as the ship was, with many passengers, they made the experience terrific. Princess is our favorite cruise line and that will not ... Read more

This is our fourth transatlantic and we really enjoy the relaxed sea days. There are still plenty of activities to choose from. Also, it is easier to adjust to the time changes since it is more gradual. The shore excursions to ... Read more

Although we are highly experienced cruisers, we had never been on a Transatlantic cruise, nor had we been to any part of Europe. Most of our experiences were 7 nights, returning to the same port of embarkation. We chose this repositioning ... Read more

We got a brochure that had an excellent price and a time frame we liked. We also liked that we could fly to Houston non-stop. The tips were paid by Carnival so that was another selling point for us. We also have wanted to see Paris and ... Read more

Embarkation was a bit slow because there was a festival going on and traffic was really backed up. But once we got in the terminal embarkation was quite smooth. This was our third time on the Regal and she is just as beautiful as the first ... Read more

We took this cruise because it left from Houston (we live in Texas), it was a transatlantic, and it went to ports that are not on the usual transatlantic crossings. Everything was pretty much what one can expect on a 3,000 passenger ship ... Read more

Embarkation went smoothly once at the pier; problem was it took almost an hour to get to the pier. Princess needs to try to upgrade the approach to the pier which hasn't changed in 20 years. The ship has a beautiful, elegant interior ... Read more

We've sailed on a number of cruise lines, from Norwegian to Seabourn and Princess is the best in our book on the basis of quality and value. (Nothing can beat Seabourn, but the cost such that we can't make it a consistent way of life.) ... Read more
