Great itinerary but a few disappointments...

We chose this cruise for the ports in Norway , particularly in the Arctic , we wanted to see. I have cruised before with Celebrity and MSC ( and enjoyed both) but for my husband it was his first time. We found the clientele were mostly British or American habitual cruisers and it became a bit wearing to constantly hear " cruise stories". The ship is nice but showing her age and the decor is a bit ...

Chose this cruise line for itinery and promise of a wonderful experience and to come back new from Princess. We were disappointed. This ship appeared to be clean, well turned out, welcoming and promised much. It failed in so many ways. Basically the ship seemed overcrowded with too many people competing for too few seats in dining areas, bars and lounges. The dining experience in their ...

We wanted to visit the far North and Nordkapp and this was the only cruise available. Bad weather meant missing Flam which was a pity, but the wind and swell was awful even after our delayed departure from Stavanger so right decision by Captain. Ship too big for my taste but crew were friendly and efficient and food as expected of a good standard. Cleanliness of a high standard. Entertainment ...

We had a great holiday. I was grateful for all the help I found out on forums like this one beforehand so I wanted to leave behind some tips that would have helped me plan my holiday in the hope it will be useful for others. 1) Excursions. The places we visited were the highlight of the holiday, particularly Lofoten Islands and North Cape. Be warned that the ship excursion prices were ...

This was our 3rd cruise as a couple, and our second cruise as a family with 2 children (aged 7 and 5). Our two previous cruises were with Royal Caribbean to Alaska and the Baltics respectively. We chose Norway and the Fjords for 3 main reasons. The embarkation port was Southampton so we could avoid the scrum, exhaustion and baggage weight anxiety of airports. The cruise was to a temperate part ...

We chose this cruise as a treat for my partner who had retired a few days prior to departure. Embarkation was easy and efficient and it was a bonus being able to drop hand luggage to our cabin straightaway. We were in a mini suite which was spacious, well furnished ( the bed is really comfy), bathroom is small but had bath and shower. Large balcony with chairs, foot rests and a table. ...

Choose this cruise for our 25th wedding Anniversary and because it was going to the North Cape. The scenery was beautiful the Norwegians were lovely as always but the cruise left a lot to be desired. The staff were very rude on the whole except for our cabin steward and restaurant waiter. The food was often cold and there were not very good choices compared to other and often cheaper lines. ...

It was a wonderful two weeks, great scenery and ports. Dress warm be prepared for rain. Good entertainment and loved the crooners bar. Definitely worth spending a few days on London exploring before going to the port. Princess gives you great value for your money. I found that the Brits on the cruise to be so friendly and welcoming. The staff was attentive, love having a balcony. Anytime dining ...

In cabin D606 the paper is pealing off the wall, the fridge door is hanging off its hinges. This is a ship that is need of an serious update. 3 star is the maximum I would give it. Drinks are very overpriced,$29 for a Reisling, that can be got in Tesco for £8.00. Campari was $6 a shot plus $2.30 for a tonic. You have to pay for water, $5.95 for a 1.5 ltr bottle Plus 15% gratuity. WIFI prices ...
