Worst Cruise in a Lifetime of Cruising
"This was the first half of the 2016 world cruise. The main problem was the entertainment staff. There was very little organised activities, and those that were were aimed at 6 year olds! These included a craft..."Read More

Good service, bad food, too many missed ports.

We choose this cruise as a family vacation that would take us half way around the world, Southampton to Singapore, in 37 days. We had some good times and some not so good times, and met many new friends, but I can not recommend the Sapphire. The service is good, but the food is not good. You can always find something to eat, but as a rule, the overcooked meats buried in tasteless brown sauce, ...

Excellent choice of ports. Princess has good value and consistent and organized product. Food is excellent but occasionally disappoints. Good coffee still seems to be a weakness although café bar at extra charge is a nice touch. Value added features are pushed and not good value for money especially excursions. You have to be careful as you can quickly find the bill for your holiday much higher ...

WORST PRINCESS EVER TAKEN

Main reason was to go along the Suez Canal and then see Petra. We saw and liked the Suez, but Petra had to be cancelled due to the flood there the day before our arrival. Practically nearly all of the other ports we had visited before, and this ship and it's itinerary (apart from the Sea or Sun Princess World Cruise) go through the Suez and gave the chance of going to Petra. Had we seen ...

Overall a great cruise with nothing negative to comment on. Great itinerary, excellent ships staff, good food good entertainment, what more could one want. Sailing down the Solent in daylight was a great experience, a good selection of continental ports, the weather could have been better but did not impinge on our enjoyment.visiting the many classical sights through the Mediterranean including ...

Had sailed on Sea princess before, a suitable size with just under 2000 passengers, but still plenty of room and easy access to all areas of the ship. Cabin was very suitable and convieniently situated, only a noise problem at night being over the Crooners Band, although it normally went off about 10.30 most nights. Dining generally satisfactory except there appear to be too many exotic ...

I have come to really like long cruises. With a one- or two-week cruise you're just getting to know the ship when it's over; with a 30-day cruise you have time to enjoy it more. For this cruise, when people asked, "Where did you go?" we said, "Everywhere!" Started in Southampton, made our way down the coast, through the Mediterranean, through the Suez Canal, around the Middle East, around India ...

We had a fabulous 30 day cruise from Southampton, England through the Suez Canal until we reached Singapore. Very interesting ports of call including Dubai, Aqaba (Jordan), Cochin (India), Phuket, not to mention Italy and Sicily. Princess did a great job managing a very full ship of passengers. The food was very tasty at every venue, the service was great, and the lecturers on board were so ...

The repositioning cruise was chosen because it seemed to be well priced and was a nice way of returning to Australia. The ports were an annoying interlude between the sea days. No bridge Director on board yet lots of sea days. Sorry Princess now sailing on Cunard. On the previous leg the Cruise Director told the bridge Director they could take all the equipment if they wanted as they were ...

It would take us some hours to list all the issues (from a customer’s viewpoint) that need immediate addressing by Princess, as a result of our experiences during the 48 day Southampton to Sydney cruise on the Emerald Princess, but here are just a few to start with, just off the top of our head: UPGRADING TO MINI SUITE: When we originally booked the cruise, we wanted a mini-suite but were ...

Good way to get home after touring in England, Good length of cruise. Really enjoyed the cruise in general, the only negative was the Indian visa requirement, don't know why Princes continue to include India, when it is such a pain to acquire visa and it costs so much for a single day. On the up side: 1/ The inclusion of the Share Restaurant was a real bonus, initially thought the $39 ...
