Ports were great but not the ship

Whilst we've had good experiences on former Princess cruises, we've never been on a Crown-class ship. We selected the cruise entirely for the itinerary & we loved all the ports visited but I'm afraid we were rather ...

Tired ship, with Tired crew and Tired food.

The food is uninspired. With a small number of offerings at the Horizon Buffet that changed only slightly from day to day. Food from venue to venue tasted pretty much the same. Except for one dinner at the Crab ...

We and another couple took this cruise to see a large number of places as a first visit. We briefly explored Rome for 4 days prior to joining the ship. The embarkation and disembarkation was seamless. We booked a ...

Too pricey

I chose this cruise because of the itinerary. The only good thing about the cruise. Trips off the ship were far too expensive. One trip Princess was charging 149 US Dollars and it was done locally for 52 US Dollars. ...

We chose the cruise mainly for the destinations, which were just what we wanted; the timing was right and we thought we would try a bigger ship than previously. Also, very importantly, it sailed from Southampton. ...

This was our first cruise with Princess having completed 18 other cruises with P&O, Celebrity, Cunard, Royal Caribbean and MSC. We had been somewhat seduced by the hype, the advertising and former passengers ...
