This cruise was not all that bad but it wasn't all that great either. Past Princess cruisers we met on board asked us to give Princess another go. We cruise based mainly on highest value - lowest price for high quality. Pros: The cruise went to three places we had not yet visited, Bermuda, Ireland, and Cornwall. We arranged our own excursions and would use these tour groups again. For Bermuda we hired Ricky's Island Tours and Minibus Service for a 14-person bus tour from King's Wharf through Hamilton to Georgetown and back, stopping at scenic vistas and beaches for photos and snacks. For Ireland we hired About Cork Taxi Tours for a 4-person tour to Blarney Castle near Cork and Charles Fort in Kinsale followed by a good lunch at Jim Edwards pub in Kinsale. For Cornwall, we hired Cornwall Discovery for a 4-person tour to St. Ives, the vistas en route to Land's End, scones and tea in Mousehole, a view of Saint Michael's Mount then back to Falmouth. The entertainment by the Caribbean Princess Singers Dancers and Orchestra including the seating and lighting was among the best we've experienced from our 14+ cruises including two prior TAs. All four shows, Piano Man, Born to Be Wild, Broadway Ballroom, and Bravo, showcased very talented musicians, singers and dancers with excellent choreography. The highly talented ventriloquist Kieran Powell had a hilarious show with a Dating Game audience participation segment. The Chapman Twins presented two enthralling high energy shows singing and dancing to MoTown, 60's, and 70's hits. We even enjoyed the sometimes divisive afternoon trivia hosted by the lively cruise staff. For lunch we went to Slices and the Salty Dog Grill to feast on delicious pepperoni and cheese pizzas, hotdogs, chicken sandwiches and burgers. Two days we enjoyed British-Style Pub Lunch in the Crown Grill featuring fish and chips, bangers and mash, and Beef Wellington with Yorkshire Pudding. The World Fresh Marketplace had a good variety of breakfast offerings but the omelet station was not well-organized such that people stood in front of the ready-made omelets and eggs waiting on their orders. Cons: The food offerings were just average in the Coral Dining Room for dinner. For example, one formal night we could choose either Prime Rib, chicken, fish, or a single lobster tail for the main. We only were offered Baked Alaska the last dinner of the cruise. One time we tried room service for breakfast but found the food quality and options severely lacking; the only egg or bacon offered was an english muffin combo which was cold and stale. We went to the World Fresh Marketplace for lunch once but the offerings were not very appetizing (Eastern Destinations -noodles, rice, and soup, Western Destinations - roast turkey, chipped beef, chicken drumsticks and wings, salads, and a variety of desserts). Public restrooms were in various states of disrepair with signs marking toilets out of service throughout the voyage. Waiting for elevators took too long. You could see that elevators would bypass the floor without stopping. No inviting area to observe the ship's forward voyage except for the vacant unstaffed SkyWalker's Lounge on deck 18 aft. A complete waist of a nice 320 degree view with a dance floor and bar! Read Less

50th Anniversary Celebration and the excellent itinerary! We booked this cruise to celebrate our 50th anniversary and husband's birthday! We loved the itinerary because we were able to see ports never visited before! We love sea days and this cruise gave us lots of relaxing, unhurried days to do whatever we wanted....or to do nothing at all. The food was very good but the staff makes any cruise good or bad! Our waiter and Jr. waiter were excellent. They did everything and more to make sure our dining experience was memorable! Our cabin steward was so efficient. He cleaned when we were away and turned our covers down while we dined at night. We love cruising and feel it's the best value for our money. We always meet new friends from all over the world and this diversity adds to the enjoyment of our cruise. Princess is committed to making each cruise special and this one was special for us!

I always wanted to go on a trans alantic cruise and found it a very relaxing way to cross the ocean. The Princess Caribbean was a great ship and lots to do during the day or night. I didnt really like the upgrade or re-do of the buffet on Lido deck, less choices to eat, but I really enjoyed dining in the palm dining room for breakfast, supper.I always wanted to see Paris, but it was real cold, but no rain. Wales port was great, their was alot to see around Falmouth port. Ireland was a great stay in port also enjoyed the pubs at the port we stopped in.Bermuda was a great port also, we enjoyed just visiting the area around the port, but did take a local bus to the town , but took the ferry back to the princess ship at the dock, I would recommend the ferry over the bus.
