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 Princess described the lunch for new seafood and bbq grill restaurants. Really nothing more than an extension of the seating for the Market Place. Also, did not find the specialty coffee to be as tasty as on other sailings with Princess. As usual, staff was great and entertainment and food options plentiful. Wish that a shuttle had been provided by Princess into Edinburgh as $65 was a bit steep for a 20 minute drive. You do not always want to do excursions as it is also nice to simply explore on your own. Tender process was slow for Edinburgh (over 1 hour just to get off the boat)-felt as if treated as a '2nd class citizen' because we did not take a Princess excursion in this port.
Nice room on the 14th deck. Easy walk to pools and food.
Able to easily walk around, both in the country-side and in the town center.
Easy to self-navigate. Worth a trip to the Belfast Castle ('cat castle'). Grounds are spectacular with a great view of the city and even our ship. Able to get there by public bus.
Scottish Highlands was a highlight of our trip. Our excursion took us to Inverary Castle and the small town of Luss.
Edinburgh Castle is worth the walk up the hill. Tender process a bit long, so did not have as much time as I would have liked to explore this city.
