We chose this cruise to relax after doing a Trafalgar bus tour through Europe. Embarkation was easy. As we had a mini-suite, we had priority boarding and were lead through to a separate area to wait for our turn to board. We didn't ... Read more

Overall this was an excellent cruise. The royal princess is a beautiful ship with highlights being the atrium, sea walk, the crooners bar and Movies under the stars. We found the main dining room had an edge above all other cruise ... Read more

Have done tens of long European cruises with Princess in the past and this one has me rethinking in the future. The ship was shiny and new which was great. Problem is that allot of the choices in building make this a ship to avoid. ... Read more

Sailed on the brand new Majestic Princess at the end of April for a Greek Islands cruise. Elite status made for a very expeditious boarding with almost no waiting at all. The Majestic is well appointed since it is a new ship and, as ... Read more

Wife and I chose this back to back cruise because it was a brand new ship and for 3 of the ports never visited. We travel often and usually opt for private transfers, so it was a pleasure to have our driver waiting to whisk us to Piraeus ... Read more

Many of the CC passengers on the Sept. 3, 10, and 17 cruises on the Royal were extremely disgruntled with all the itinerary changes, so by the time my husband and I embarked on this cruise, we had low expectations. It was NOT the cruise ... Read more
