We had a great time on this ship. I appreciate the size of it. For the first time since I began cruising, I didn't need to take any motion sick meds. Embarkation was smooth- we waited until around 2pm (it started at noon). We were met at ... Read more

We choose this cruise for the Ports of call, and we thoroughly enjoyed them all, especially Italy. As for the 'Royal Princess', the ship common areas are very nice, and clean. We did have an interior stateroom on deck 11, the room was ... Read more

The ship held over 3500 people with ease. There were plenty of lounge chairs and the staff in the Horizon Court was quick to bring you beverages. The tables were preset with dishes and flatware. This saved a lot of aggravation from ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise on the Royal Princess, and I do love this class of ship. The enhancements that were added in the most recent dry dock really made a difference--the main one was adding the mid-ship staircase and the side entry ... Read more

We chose this cruise to relax after doing a Trafalgar bus tour through Europe. Embarkation was easy. As we had a mini-suite, we had priority boarding and were lead through to a separate area to wait for our turn to board. We didn't ... Read more

We booked this cruise because of the online deal and we had always wanted to do a Mediterranean cruise. We arrived a few days early into Athens, stayed in the Plaka area to do the touristy stuff on our own (walk Ermou St., Monastariki ... Read more

We choose Princess cruises as we had a previous cruise still in our minds, the Diamond Princes sailing out of Sydney heading to Perth April last year and everyone of our party had a great time, we have cruised fourteen times prior and on ... Read more

This was my 6th cruise so I am starting to make my second cruise on a few lines. Previous to this cruise my best overall experience had been on Princess (Ruby Princess) so I decided to use Princess again to see if there was consistency. I ... Read more

Overall this was an excellent cruise. The royal princess is a beautiful ship with highlights being the atrium, sea walk, the crooners bar and Movies under the stars. We found the main dining room had an edge above all other cruise ... Read more

This cruise was, in short fun for a couple of old geezers from Canada. We chose the 14 day option, Barcelona to Athens. We spent 3 days in Barcelona (Tip, book your tour to Guardia Familia more than 3 days ahead or it's full in high ... Read more

There was a real disconnect between what actually happened onboard and the "Cruise Personalizer" website function, which got our trip off to a bad start. First, I had indicated that we wanted bathrobes in the Cruise ... Read more

In Sep 2106 we saw the promotional material for a 2 week Mediterranean cruise from Barcelona to Athens in May 2017. We rang Princess direct to find out where the ship went after that and were told back to Barcelona - that it was a circle ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it visited ports that were on our must see list and it would give us a taste of each, so we could decide if we would revisit again and spend more time in the future. Embarkation was smooth, although the queues ... Read more

Prior to boarding this ship, we did a week long trek across Italy, along a similar line to the cruise tour option, but as we've been to all of those places before (Venice, Florence, Rome) we did our own version. Upon arriving in Rome, the ... Read more

We have been on the Royal before and think she is a great ship. The major issue is that on Royal you cannot walk around the whole outside of deck 7 Promenade like you can on other Princess ships. Service was great and our room steward ... Read more

Embarkation was easy in Rome and our cabin size was as expected & comfortable. The balcony is a bit small but adequate. We used anytime dining and as we were happy to share never waited very long. The restaurant food was patchy and ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the destinations! Princess offered great ports. It was unfortunate that Istanbul was removed from the itinerary, but due to safety reasons in that part of the world, it was a good decision. Regarding the Royal ... Read more
