I chose this cruise because my family had never been to the British Isles but was familiar with the history of the cities and wanted to see it first hand. We had always heard of the beauty of Ireland and Scotland, the kindness (and humor!) ... Read more

We selected this cruise because of the Celtic destinations, and it did not disappoint.The beginning was a real positive as we encountered the most efficient boarding process we have encountered in 30+ cruises. I thought the customer ... Read more

This was an itinerary that was on my bucket list. Very port intensive. We felt France (LeHarvre) was a waist of time for this trip - it was a holiday and everything was closed. As far as the ship was concerned, things were clean, the ... Read more

Chose this cruise because we liked the itinerary. The itinerary is very good. All ports were very good, and gave a good sample of the UK. Food quality has slipped, Steaks no longer offered daily in the dining room. Cuts of meat ... Read more

We were very unhappy with the food. Besides having numerous entrees that we disliked, I was not able to eat my usual healthy choices. I generally eat eggs, yogurt, and berries for breakfast. The scrambled eggs tasted like salty powder. The ... Read more

The British Isles is a wonderful itinerary having a mix of larger cities (Dublin, Edinburgh) but also having more rural areas to explore in the Scottish Highlands. The Caribbean Princess is a wonderful ship. Only comment is vis-a-vis how ... Read more

Poor food quality throughout the ship, the worst we have had on any other cruise. The buffet has very few healthy food options and the coffee was terrible. Disembarkation through tenders slow and poorly organized. Most of the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. We thoroughly enjoyed each and every port we went into. We were not able to get into Cobh due to poor weather conditions. That was a disappointment. We found the crew to be courteous and ... Read more

We were on this ship a year ago and liked it very well...so we wanted to take it again. The cruise was very good. I think they have a different food manager now than they had a year ago and I don't think the food was as good as before ... Read more

We selected this cruise because of the ports of call. We do not stay with one cruise line, but rather choose our cruises based on ports of call. The ship is older, but all of the public areas have been renovated. There are new mattresses ... Read more

My husband and I chose this particular British Isles itinerary on the Caribbean Princess because the dates matched up with our plans for 2-weeks of independent European land travel prior to the cruise on May 13, 2017. We were anxious to ... Read more

We liked the itinerary. We knew it was early in the season and would be chilly but that worked out ok, our oceanview cabin was small but adequate. Biggest issue was the uneven water flow of the shower, it went from ice cold to scalding. ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the same reason I always do, the itinerary. I thought the timing was really good too since I knew the ship was just coming out of dry dock in the Bahamas. Unfortunately, turned out they weren't there to do ... Read more

Consistent with other Princess Cruises. I thought the food was better than other recent experiences, my wife did not agree. Had the free specialty dining, was probably my worst meal. The free drink package was over the top. Loved all ... Read more

After my experience with Princess Cruise line Customer Service, I have decided not to do cruises anymore. I booked this cruise to see Kirkwall in the Orkney Islands. They decided to not to dock there, and the Captains, 'oh well, we'll ... Read more

As indicated in the title, we really enjoyed the British Isles itinerary. The excursions were very well-planned, entertaining, and informative and the weather was better than expected. Our balcony cabin (C259), however, was cramped and ... Read more

We sail on Princess almost every year, and this cruise was slightly disappointing. The itinerary is what we went for, and we only missed one port, Orkney, but that happens. What almost never happens is mediocre food, and this was the ... Read more

I selected the Caribbean Princess because of the itinerary. Because I am a solo cruiser, I chose an inside cabin. On both of my Princess cruises, I selected to have the beds separated, which gives me much more floor space. On both ... Read more

We are experienced travelers (cruise or otherwise), this was our 12th cruise. Very much enjoyed this cruise. Reality tho is that we booked for the ports of call and the cruise line was irrelevant. But feel we got great service and ... Read more

We picked this cruise to see a good slice of the British Isles without having to drive on the other side of the road or pack and unpack almost daily moving around. For that it worked great. We had a room with a balcony which was really ... Read more
