Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2018
  • Destination: Transatlantic
  • Cabin Type: Oceanview

Always wanted to cross an ocean as an immigrant to Canada.

This was our first cross Atlantic cruise, our first on Princess and the first ever cruise for my partner.

The boat was very good. We had a great time on this trip.

We were in Europe for 2 weeks before embarking visiting Paris and Rome each for a week.

The staff was great.

The restaurants were to our taste quite too similar. The food was good but the three anytime restaurants had a very similar decor and the menus sounded very similar.

We preferred by far the steak house over the Italian restaurant for the pay a fee restaurants.

We loved the cabin and the mattress and pillows were the most comfortable we ever slept on. Too bad the mattress is not sold in Canada. Our Stewart was fantastic. It was a pleasure to have Wilmer helping us. He did an amazing job.

For activities, my partner would have loved more hands on activities like cooking class.

I enjoyed the movie under the stars. The larger pool was a lot of fun especially with a little sea movement cresting some waves.

We enjoy the coffee bar.

I used an Internet package. It was great to be able to work from the middle of the Atlantic. If possible it would be great if the speed could be increased. At time it was painfully slow.

Regarding the TV, we would have preferred for the movies at least an option to start the movies when we wanted like a Netflix style. A little more selection in movies and shows would be great on such a long cruise.

We only used princess excursions at one harbor. We did our own at the others. We never looked really at the excursions offered. We were used to go on our own.

Embarking was very easy and smooth. Disembarking was good too. Just slow with the us customs to clear.

Cabin Review

Oceanview
Cabin OB P336

Loved the cabin. Only wish the window did not have a bar in the middle but otherwise real good, very comfortable and we had a great stewart.


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Toulon

We skipped because the boat could not dock so day at sea.
