We choose this cruise for the Ports of call, and we thoroughly enjoyed them all, especially Italy. As for the 'Royal Princess', the ship common areas are very nice, and clean. We did have an interior stateroom on deck 11, the room was ... Read more

Having cruised Princess nine times in the past we though we knew what to expect from the grand daddy of west coast cruising. Needless to say everything was extremely disappointing. The cabins despite the refurbishment in 2016 tired, with ... Read more
