Have used princess on several occasions on repositionings instead of flying. Fact that I live in Houston made it very convenient eliminating flying. Room was as expected and itenerary was interesting including stops in Liverpool, Holyhead ... 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

We disembarked this floating nursing home as soon as it arrived on the European continent in Cherbourg, France. We counted the days when we could get off this ship. We walked 20 minutes to the train station and bought tickets for the train ... 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

I am new to princess cruises, and they made a good 1st impression as far as the ship, crew, food and itinerary. The only complaint i had was embarkation at fort lauderdale port. First, boarding was running late, apparently because it ... Read more

We chose this cruise based on the transatlantic itinerary. Embarkation and lifeboat drill were flawless. We particularly like the inside lifeboat drill where you are able to sit in air conditioning for the 20 minutes or so. Other lines ... Read more

After spending a few pre-cruise days in Venice, we boarded the Island Princess, our first time with them so we were naturally wondering what we would find! The boarding was quite good, everything ran smoothly; the cabin was ready and ... Read more

It was a shame what the corporate office did when they decided to add 200 more rooms on the ship. Apparently they didn't account for the 400 more passengers to eat in the main dining room. We had my time dining and most nights were given ... Read more

We relied on the very good reviews of this ship when we booked our cruise late in 2014, and the resulting high rating of the ship , but unfortunately most of the reviews and the resulting rating predates renovations that were recently ... Read more

This was our fourth transatlantic, our 20th cruise on the Princess Line and the third on the Island. During this 31 day repositioning we found the Island clean, though a little dated, with excellent always-with-a-smile service and the ... Read more

Best Transatlantic cruise ever. The cruise departed from Southampton (London). I went over to London 3 days early and took in many sights and experiences that London has to offer. The ship had excellent dining venues. The regular ... Read more

We had no expectations and were so pleasantly surprised by this cruise. The ports were pretty good but the ship activities and layout were the best. The cruise director, Martin, was so amazing. He had great jokes, was warm and open to the ... Read more

This was my 13th Princess cruise. The first and last on the new Royal. My biggest disappointment in the ship is the lack of an outside promenade deck. You are cut off from the sea unless you go to the top of the ship to the jogging track. ... Read more
