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

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

We love sea days! Those are the best days to just chill. At that time of year it's a hit and a miss for pool days, but it's always a good day for the hot tub. But, mostly the destinations. Spain and Portugal and England all in one trip!! ... Read more

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
