We have sailed Princess four previous times and have been extremely pleased. This time, not so much. The Royal had just got out of dry dock prior to its Rome departure. It should have stayed there a while longer. It was not ready for a ... Read more

We scheduled this TA Cruise because we were visiting Italy for the 1st time for 8 nights before the Cruise. In the past our TA Cruise was 1st and then the vacation after the Cruise. This was much nicer being able to rest and relax at the ... Read more

We chose this cruise after sailing on the Regal Princess and being wowed by her. The experience on the Royal was vastly different though. Don't get me wrong, the ship is stunningly beautiful and the staff all top notch, no complaints ... Read more

I have sailed with Princess cruises several times and have always loved it. This time however, this was not the case. Princess seems to be cutting corners all over the place and while we (my sister and I) were expecting a wonderful ... Read more

Sailed October 2016
We had done this in reverse in April 2015, had a great time then, expected the same. Although this was a nice cruise, it definitely was not stellar. Embarkation was smooth, as was disembarkation, but several things were not. The ... Read more

My wife and I took this trip just to get away. We are platinum members which should indicate we are experienced cruisers on Princess. We rarely complain and are usually quite laid back. However, Regal Princess was a prime example of ... Read more

We loved the cruise. We spent 3 days getting over jet lag and enjoying Copenhagen. It's a colorful and friendly city. Embarkation could not have been better. We got right on the ship with no waiting. went up and got something to eat then ... Read more

Maybe it just wasn't fair... our last cruise- last year a 17 day TA from Fort Lauderdale to Venice was fantastic- wonderful service, from the ding room to lounges to the cabin. Our tours, except one, were more than perfect. On this ship ... Read more

The Entertainment Cruise Director and his staff were excellent but most of the other crew I could only rate as average. The balcony BA cabin was adequate for a 14 days cruise but the balcony was small. The ship itself is great but there ... Read more

We chose this cruise to explore alternative ways to cross the Atlantic to the U.S.A. The Caribbean Princess comes a very poor second to Cunard's Queen Mary 2 in all comparisons. Space: The ship felt cramped and claustrophobic on the sea ... Read more

The TransAtlantic cruise was no more than average. Also, the stop at Lerwick was cancelled due to adverse sea conditions - nothing the ship could have done about that. Food was nothing special, and various national foods left a lot to ... Read more

Normally love TA as there is so much to do on the sea days. The ports were enjoyable which made up for lack of sea day activities. Still don't understand why Princess has given up on organized bridge or having a bridge teacher. Happily the ... Read more

Wanted to see Iceland and North Atlantic area. Bad weather did not allow for Scotland landing, and was a issue in Iceland. Maybe September is too late in the season for this area. Entertainment on board was only so-so. Movies were ... Read more

This is about my 15th trip with Princess and I stick with them because of their rewards program (generous) and their itineraries go where I want. The staff is usually very good and I like the large variety of food and times. The age ... Read more

Great walking access to ship from hotel and embarkation was good. The ship was in good condition but is an older style compared to the newer ships. The cabin we had was quiet and comfortable and inside on deck 11. Biggest complaint was ... Read more
