First time on Princess

Review for Caribbean Princess to Transatlantic

This was our first time with Princess. We loved how on embarking, you were not forced to eat in the buffet. Past cruises have guided all guests to this area. So, that was a good start. Because most of the activities were scattered in other areas of the ship, the atrium was a relaxing place to sit and listen to the music, while enjoying a tea or coffee. Didn't like having to pay for a pot of ...

Always wanted to cross the Atlantic, and very happy we did. Many complained that Princess failed them when they dropped a couple of ports and substituted a couple of others, but we didn't mind - it's all about the ship for us and CB was looking sharp coming out of her major dry dock. We sailed her only a year ago, so the changes were obvious for us. Most Notable: Horizon Court is no ...

The itenary started out good, but due to circumstances beyond their control we were unable to complete the tours originally booked. The traditional dining food was good, the menu unexciting and the service was disappointing. Our CABIN(E214) was situated a floor above the Princess theatre and as a result we were bombarded with continual noise from about 11 am to 11 pm. Also the cigarette smoke ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary but then it was changed to eliminate 3 ports we had wanted to visit. We considered cancelling but decided against it and am glad we did. We really enjoyed the weather as it was very warm every day. We were given an upgrade to a balcony and it was nice but needs to be refreshed. The bed was very comfortable but the rug had stains. The crew were very ...

The only reason we decided to do this cruise was because it was such a fabulous bargain. I mean $398 for a balcony on a 15-night cruise ... How do you pass that up? Add in to the calculations the $250 OBC for being a veteran, and the deal got even juicier. Finally, as an extra, extra bonus, they gave us each $100 OBC for the change in itinerary. We seriously debated whether or not to do such a ...

Many people cancelled this cruise when it was announced that the ship had a propulsion problem and would be traveling slower. They also changed the itinerary to accommodate this reduced speed. But I have to say that you really missed out on a wonderful cruise. We never had any mechanical problems and the ports were good, and the staff, food , entertainment, etc. were outstanding. We traveled ...

We sailed the Caribbean Princess from Southampton 9/22/17 to Ft Lauderdale 10/7/17. It was our 45th cruise, but first transatlantic. We used Princess’ EZ Air for Virgin Atlantic BOS to LHR and enjoyed a day in London pre-cruise. Overall we had a very good, relaxing time. We love sea days; the first two were very cool, but the other eight were fantastic. We relaxed on a Lido Deck chaise ...

I just read a review from someone who sailed on this cruise who claimed Le Harve was experiencing a port strike and they missed going to Normandy because the ship didn't dock there. This is false. We certainly did dock in Le Harve and many, many of the guest on board went to Normandy. I spent a very lovely day with my friend, who traveled with me, in Honfleur. Others went into Paris, but we've ...

Tired old ship with tired old onboard activities & substandard shore excursions

Pricing: Princess originally offered this 5-port transatlantic voyage at $2k each for midship balcony cabins. Upon eliminating 2 ports and substituting 1 port, the balcony price reduced to $1,500. We were told the skipped ports were because the ship was operating on only one engine instead of two, and could achieve only 18 knots instead of the normal 20-something.Onboard we learned that some ...

This was my 2nd Transaltlantic with Princess and my 6th overall with them. We really enjoyed ourselves. Check in was easy and although I am Platinium, I was not given priority boarding until I showed my number to a Rep. and she then let us aboard, not a biggy, but for sure can set a tone. Our inside cabin on Riviera Deck was fine, every thing we really needed, It was our first inside for such ...
