Lovely ship in beautiful places

7 nights from Athens to Barcelona. Boarding in Athens - hot! Now yes - it’s Greece in the middle of summer - however the terminal is a huge marquee. There were air con units but they were not really making much difference. If we had been able to board at our allocated time then we would not have been there long, but everyone seemed to think they can just turn up when they want and Princess ...

We went on a 2 week cruise of the Mediterranean and should have booked for 3 weeks to complete the cruise. The staff was courteous and efficient to a degree. The Sanctuary was fully booked and was difficult to get a space even though there were obvious openings (empty cabanas and lounge chairs) I think because the area was understaffed. We had booked Club Class and the dedicated anytime dining ...

The destinations were what inspired us to take this cruise. Entertainment was excellent. The Princess musical group was top rate and thoroughly enjoyed. Excite and others were terrific. Magician was not of the same caliber as the other entertainers. The DJ made the volume unbearable and played the same play list repeatedly. I think he controlled the volume of the movies during the day. Again the ...

We did R/T Barcelona for 3 weeks or 3 cycles. This ship had people boarding at Barcelona, Rome, Athens (and some at Crete). The cruise had wonderful ports (maybe too many!) and we had a beautiful Eastern and Western Mediterranean trip. Ship was new, clean, lots of amenities, nice staff, little ship movement (even sailing in lots of wind) and generally a wonderful floating hotel from great port to ...

We choose this cruise mainly for the itinerary. It was bucket list locations that my husband wanted to see and it was my first trip to Europe. Getting to see the beauty and history of Greece, seeing MT Etna and the sites of Pompei. The wonder of Kotor and Naples. And the under city in Naples was a wonderful way to not only hear about ancient history, but history from WW II, the 50’s and ...

A Cheap cruise it was but I expected far better - this isn't good Princess

I'm only giving this 3 stars because it was excellent value for money (ie cheap) but almost everything about Princess and the ship, in general, was a bit of a disaster. I was glad there was room for 1000 more guests as that kept the ship bearable. I would like to see this ship full! Despite not having a full ship the service was terrible, with a lack of trained staff in way too many areas. ...

Inaugural Voyage Summary

We boarded the inaugural cruise at Athens (Piraeus). The bag drop and check In was a tented affair on the dock car park. The overall process was quite informal, and not quite the song and dance that we assumed would accompany such a memorable occasion. We were asked to leave our bags at the entrance to the tent, but oddly no receipts were issued. We were welcomed by a member of staff whom guided ...

Let's start with the great.... the entertainment was off the charts, much superior to any other cruise we have taken, all STELLAR! Embarkation and debarkation were organized and a breeze. The food and service was best in the specialty restaurant Sabatinnis. If you love Italian food, don't miss it. There were plenty of choices in the Speciality restaurants and although we did not try them ...

First of all like to say the cruise living is fantastic and as usual was very well looked after by wonderful staff. Cons- Beautiful new ship with plenty of room to wonder around without feeling crowded. Alway found seat in Buffet area with new layout, plenty of couples seat and tables for larger groups. Food in fine dining restaurants was always good although usually lukewarm ...

I’ll admit, this was my first cruise so maybe I don’t have anything to compare it to but I came away from this cruise totally thrilled. Sure there were hiccups, it was the inaugural cruise, but the very good far outweighed the bad. The Sky Princess is gorgeous, especially the piazza. Our cabin with balcony was more spacious than I expected with tons of storage facilities. Our steward was ...
