We chose this cruise as the timing worked and we were keen to see Crotia. Hadn't sailed on Princess for a while so after a disappointing cruise with Celebrity we decided to travel with Princess and were not disappointed. Embarkation/Disembarkation was flawless and so very quick. We flew into Venice and got the Princess transfer by coach straight to the ship. Some of those who were less mobile did find it a bit of a trek to the coach but if you found that a trek not sure this itinerary is for you. We found the food to be very good, always plenty of choice and I found it hard to make a selection as there were so many excellent food choices. Oscar the Maitre D' is THE BEST on the ocean, he accommodated our requirements and was a great host each evening. Ports - We did our own thing (walking around town) at Split, Siracusa, Kotor and Sibinek - all beautiful easy walking towns and a very short distance from where we docked. Villefranche was a tender ride in and easy to walk round but in October was quiet and not a huge amount to see or do, next time would venture into Nice/Monaco. In Naples we went on an excursion to Pompeii and in Livorno we went to Lucca - would highly recommend both. We loved this small but perfectly formed ship which as a big ship cruiser I was very nervous about but loved it!

Wonderful time. Excellent Staff

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin MC 8051
Location and layout of the cabin were ideal. Very close to staircase but not noisy. Roomy, light and well laid out. Great balcony for watching sunsets and arriving in ports. My only advice to Princess would be to ask that the three chairs in the room (we also had a sofa) were not necessary (too many) and not at all comfortable so just cluttered the room. Great to have a full bath.
