  3. Crown Princess
I chose this cruise for the itinerary. It was a 7 night Mediterranean cruise beginning in Athens Greece ending in Barcelona, Spain. We were a group of 4 adults. However, we were overwhelmed by the outstanding service on the ship. We booked our first mini suite club class cabin and received some extra perks. We were able to embark without delay but it seemed like the regular lines were moving quickly and smoothly. Upon arrival in our cabin, we were greeted with a glass of champagne from our cabin steward. The cabin also included a small bottle of white and red wine for our cabin. The best part of the cruise was the excellent service in the dining room. Our servers were kind, knowledgeable and very pleasant. Their recommendations were always on point. They even gave us advice on the areas we visited. We booked all of our tours privately so I have no knowledge of the excursions. Princess should be very proud of their staff. After the cruise we extended our stay in Barcelona for two nights. On the morning of our departure, a representative from Princess came to the hotel to make sure we got our transfer. (This was 2 1/2 days after our cruise ended) Also at the airport, we were met by two Princess representatives who escorted us to our check-in area. I've been on many cruises and this was a first. I would highly recommend this ship and look forward to another Princess cruise.

Service was outstanding!

  • Acropolis
    Private tour. Saw so much. Tour guide was excellent and had a driver to leave us out and pick us up. Asked to drop us off to get some dinner after the tour and forgot my camera in the van. Driver returned it to my hotel later that night. Highly recommend. Found tour on Viator.

  • Private Tour
    Barcelona is a beautiful city. Our tour guide, Xaivier was excellent. He loved the city and his love was contagious. We took a half day private tour around Barcelona and went to Park Guell. He was very knowledgeable and explained all of the architecture around the city. Amazing! We were picked up at the cruise ship after the cruise and dropped off at our hotel after the tour. Highly recommend.

  • Kotor
    Very surprised about how much we loved Kotor. The village town was very enjoyable. We walked up the mountain to the church and had a very enjoyable lunch afterwards. The server brought out freshly caught fish and we picked out one, They charge by the gram. The server grilled it immediately. He then cut and served the fish at the table. What a wonderful experience.

  • Amalfi Coast
    Can not tell you how much we enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide Giovanni was like a family member. He was so pleasant and knowledgeable. He did not waste time. He took us to Positano, Sorrento and Pompei. We drove along the Amalfi Coast. Highly recommend this tour.

  • Pompeii Walking Tour
    Booked tour with Rome in Limo. Rosemary, our Tour guide met us in the afternoon prior to going back to the ship. She was excellent and took us around Pompei and explained quite a bit. Happy we paid for a tour guide to get her knowledge.
