Having sailed with princess on five previous cruises, there was no contest as to which cruise line we would choose again! We sailed from Southampton to the Western Med and thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. Result? We're booked again on the Crown Princess out of Rome/Civitaveccia (?) late July 2018 sailing in the Southern Med. Looking forward to seeing the 'upgrades' to the Crown! As far as the food was concerned, we generally enjoyed all but the 'Salty Dog.' But then again we aren't 'drinkers,' so maybe our experience of the 'Salty Dog' was biased. The entertainment in the Princess Theater was up to the standard we had come to expect. The only "bad" experience we had was a trip we had booked by train to Rome, and the tour operator 'botched' the whole thing, which resulted in us not actually going in to Rome. But Princess was very generous in reimbursing us for the full price of the excursion PLUS an additional amount for onboard credit. Read Less

Delayed at Southamton although not princess's fault ship was late getting into Southamton due to weather in the bay of Biscay which can be very fickle. We checked in and we're informed that as ship was late getting in boarding would be delayed and if you wanted princess were organising free shuttle busses into Southamton to kill time. However we decided to stay put which was just as well as we boarded within half an hour of checking in all credit to princess and check in staff. We have cruised with P&O and Cunard and princess our are favourite so far, I can't aggre with previous reviews that the ship needs a re fit as I found no evidence of tatty carpets etc. We had a mini suite on dolphin deck which was great as you get a bath as well as shower, however if there is more than two people in the cabin there is no curtain to separate the main cabin from the bed sette (as on P&O Brittania) We had fixed dineing but the couple on the table opposite us were constantly moaning about the service and were rude and belligerent to the waiters so as a result we only dined in Botticell's three times, we also ate in the sterling stakehouse and sabitinis which were both excellent. Will more than likely book princess again Read Less
