Actually my kids chose this cruise, because they were in their HS Marching Band and played Scottish music, naturally they want to learn more about Scotland. We stayed in London for 3 days before getting onto the ship. The embarkation ... Read more

I have cruised Princess two other times, a few years ago, and unfortunately have noticed a decline in the on-board atmosphere on this cruise on the Caribbean Princess. Food seemed average in the main dining room. Service seemed rushed ... Read more

We booked on the Caribbean Princess about a month out from our 3/30/17 sailing. The ship had recently come out of dry dock so we expected everything to be in tip top shape. Unfortunately, this was not the case. The exterior looked new and ... Read more

Princess had the right British Isles itinerary and that is what we went for. We had low expectations for the ship based on a previous cruise with Princess and Cruise Critic reviews, and it was about as expected. Princess would not be our ... Read more

We took this cruise for the itinerary and also because we had previously taken a Princess Cruise although not for more than 15 years. Initially it seemed as though we made a good choice but once the cruise embarked certain things became ... Read more

Was a back-2-back cruise. Sailed the Baltic aboard "Crown Princess" immediately prior to this. Dates chosen to coincide with our 50th (Golden) wedding anniversary occurring on June 10 whilst in St. Petersburg, Russia. ... Read more

I'm an active, independent cruise veteran with 53 cruises over the past 42 years. I flew to London and had private limo transportation to the ship. I've toured London several times, so skipped the city this time and was comfortable ... Read more

My oldest nephew graduated in May and his brother graduates next year. As a graduation/pre-graduation present and family vacation all wrapped into one, we wanted to visit Ireland. The thought of everyone trekking around seemed a bit ... Read more

Having previously cruised with NCL, Celebrity and Royal Caribbean, and as this ship is rated about a 4 star we were expecting a similar experience – but whilst I would probably use Princess again (if the price was right) this cruise ... Read more

The last few cruises I have been on with Princess has been disappointing. They seem to be going downhill a little more every the time. I think I am done with them. The ships are looking a bit worn and the food in mediocre at best. The ... Read more

If you are looking for a cruise where you are busy every port, this is it. I enjoy a busy cruise and on this one, I got my fill. There's little down time because every day practically is a new destination. And these are really good ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it had sites I wanted to see and because my sister and her husband asked me to go with them. I was expecting a Princess cruise to be run smoothly and provide the ultimate cruising experience and this cruise ... Read more

If this had been our first cruise with Princess it would have been our last. We chose this trip because of the itinerary which didn't disappoint, but were very disappointed with Princess. Up until now we have only sailed with Princess ... Read more

We have traveled with our son, his wife and 3 children on 5 cruises. We choose large ships for the activities for the teenagers and preteen. The Caribbean Princess had a marvelous itinerary of the British Isles, but the ship needs a ... Read more

We usually cruise Holland America but their British Isles cruise was way too high so we thought we'd try Princess, which is supposed to be comparable to HAL. Wrong!!! HAL is superior in almost every way. Except Princess's Italian ... Read more

We chose this cruise (actually changing from another cruise line) because it had a stop in Le Havre and the Normandy beaches. The embarkation was one of the smoothest we had - no lines to speak of and on board in approx. 30 minutes. We ... Read more

Some of our best friends love Princess and wouldn't cruise on anything else. When we saw this British Isles tour it had the ports we wanted so we thought why not - let's do it! I'll start at the beginning. We were glad Princess had ... Read more

We chose this particular cruise because of its itinerary, particularly the Orkneys since it is an area we would be unlikely to visit independently. It was also undertaken at the end a of 4 week trip in Spain prior to returning home to ... Read more

First, about the ship: My husband chose this cruise for his 60th birthday. We splurged a Window Suite, as Caribbean Princess is one of the few that has them. (very large room, all suite amenities, but no balcony makes it a price-point ... Read more

We chose this cruise because the ports of the British Isles were just what we wanted. The ship is a little tired and probably due for refurbishment. We hired a driver in Belfast to take us around to family ancestry sites. Best thing ... Read more
