Royal Princess Cruise Review by Tammy&Shane

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2018
  • Destination: the British Isles & Western Europe
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

We had a great cruise. The only bad thing was we missed a port due to winds and not one that you would expect to miss.

Large ship with many passengers so tendering was a bit of a wait to get off. We came back early and heard it was a nightmare to get back on if you waited until the deadline.

The buffet Omelet line needs to be organized better as people were trying to get food all around the order section and no one really knew where to stand to wait so there was always someone in the way.

Lots to do on the ship but a lot of things took place at 9:15 and if you were a late diner you always missed this unfortunately. We enjoyed meeting new people and would even do this itinerary again.

Liked being on the Lido deck even though it wasn't warm enough to use the pools sadly!

Cabin Review

Cabin BC L229

This was a deluxe balcony and the only difference was we had a small couch in the room. The balcony was exactly the same size as the others on the ship. Room was nice and location was great.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


We took the train from London Waterloo and a taxi to our hotel (White Star Tavern). The town was very walkable!

Cobh (Cork)

We did a Paddywagon Tour to Blarney Castle. We had two hours there which wasn't enough, then two hours in a town which was way too long.


We walked into town (quite far) and did a walking tour then went to Guiness. Prebuy your tickets for there if you are going during a busy time.


We did the Fab 4 - 5 hour tour with Casbah tour. We had an excellent guide and highly recommend


We did a small van tour of 8 people with City & Causeway Tours and went to Giants Causeway. We were driven around the city of Belfast and would highly recommend

Greenock (Glasgow)

We had a great tour with Scottish Terrier Tours. There were 6 of us and we had the owner as our guide. Would highly recommend.

Edinburgh (South Queensferry)

We paid $6 to take the bus from the ship into town and We did the HOHO bus (only one route). We went to the Castle and there was way to many people there. Wandered around but ended up going back to the ship early as it was a tender port and it took us quite awhile to get off the ship.
We should have stopped and did a drug store run in the city as the little shops by the dock didn't even have a cough drop.
