We chose this cruise mainly based on the itinerary but also our only previous cruise experience had been with Princess on an Alaskan cruise and we had a great time. Overall we had a wonderful trip and really didn't have any of the negative experiences/issues I had read about on this site. We had one of the club class mini suites which has a more central location on the ship but the main perk was ...

Good service, food and entertainment but public areas need new upholstery- old, stained and grimy. The excursions were enjoyable except for the “foodie walking tour of Naples”. We paid a lot for tiny portions eaten on our feet. Walk around on your own. Our foodie tour in Rome was much better. Toni Brancatisano did an excellent job of showing us her local places. Our archeology tour in Santorini ...

Great Itinerary--Ship not so great

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. The crew is excellent and the true wealth of the Princess Cruise Line. The balcony cabin on the Aloha deck was tired and in need of a serious makeover. The food on this cruise was sub-standard and poor quality--tough pork and beef--poor selections--fish (trout) that the wonderful waiter told me not to order--he had already returned several portions ...

How can they have a Mo Town Review with no black performers? They put one man in a black afro... In other performances, wonderfully talented singers and dancers were stuck with mediocre material. The Crown Band was great. The Magic to Do show was fun. We liked Eileen Gray and the 3 Tenors. There was a problem with people saving seats. Princess needed to give out tickets and if people ...

The food is uninspired. With a small number of offerings at the Horizon Buffet that changed only slightly from day to day. Food from venue to venue tasted pretty much the same. Except for one dinner at the Crab Shack. That was marvelous. And one dinner at Sabatini's. Sabatini's was excellent with superb attention and care from the waiter. The Salty Dog... pass on that. The worst hamburger at ...

We had cruised with Princess several times before and were very pleased with the ships and cruise line in general. We had a very easy embarkation and the staff made the process very easy. The ship was a little dated in decor although very clean. Our main disappointment was the quality of the food on this trip. We ate in the dining room each night and most of what we encountered was poorly ...

The food leaves much to be desired. The food buffet was horrible. The speciality restaurants and dining room were a notch above the food buffet. The friendliness of staff was non existent. The staff literally herd you on and off the boat like cattle. No smiles, not a please or thank you . Simple manners were non existent even with a lot of the passengers. The rooms and ship were clean. The ...

We were on the 7 day cruise from Barcelona, Spain to Rome Italy. We were traveling with our adult children, ages 20 and 22. It was a beautiful trip. We have never traveled with Princess before. It was very average, nothing over the top. I have definitely been on better cruises. The food was not the best. I have had food on other cruises where I couldn't wait for dinner or wanted all on ...
