Truly a Grand Mediterranean

Our first trip on the Royal, but we cruised three times on the pretty much identical Regal Princess. We did not and do not have a thing to complain about or any regrets about taking this cruise at all!! The ship, ...

Poor Food Quality/Variety was a Sad Surprise

This was to be our 5th cruise and our 4th cruise line we've been on, and we were excited, having heard great things about Princess and their high food quality, the more adult crowd, and we liked the layout of the ...

Great Itinerary, Nice Ship

Once we decided on the Mediterranean, this itinerary and ship worked well for us. Although I wasn't excited about sailing on such a large ship I knew it would offer more variety of on-board activities, ...

Could Be Much Better for a Good Brand as Princess

Never saw the entertainment team really, as when onboard we were on top deck and they never done any entertainment that we saw or read in the itinery up there. The band 'atomic' were excellent but only did one sail ...

11 day med cruise from Barcelona

Overall experience was very good. We booked a fly cruise from the UK, and the flight was uneventful and punctual. The transfer to the port was good, and the embarkation process very efficient, despite the fact that ...

So disappointing

Food is mediocre, entertainment unoriginal, excursions not planned well (why am I in a shopping port on a Sunday? Florence on a Monday when museums are closed?). On one excursion we were "dumped" in a town with a ...

Disappointed this time

I chose this cruise as a reunion with an old friend who has never cruised before. I felt that Princess has dropped the standard. This is my fifth cruise with them but never on such a big ship. Its way too big in ...

Great Ship - but too big for us.

We chose this cruise for the itinerary. We ended up loving Barcelona, Genova, Florence and Rome. The ship missed Marseilles (due to weather), Cartagena was not worth a stop and Gibraltar was fun but not ...
