This was an itinerary that was on my bucket list. Very port intensive. We felt France (LeHarvre) was a waist of time for this trip - it was a holiday and everything was closed. As far as the ship was concerned, things were clean, the ... Read more

I chose Princess on other people's recommendation, but I was not impressed and don't plan to use Princess again. I had been on two other cruises on Carnival and found them much more fun, well-planned, and friendly. First of all, our room ... Read more

This was a 'mother & daughter" get away. Just one day from Vancouver to Seattle then returning on the Quick Shuttle back to Vancouver. Boarding took a long time but the problem was the US customs trying to clear a 'gazillion' ... Read more

We were very unhappy with the food. Besides having numerous entrees that we disliked, I was not able to eat my usual healthy choices. I generally eat eggs, yogurt, and berries for breakfast. The scrambled eggs tasted like salty powder. The ... Read more

We have traveled on both the Allure and Oasis of the Seas with RCI and Solstice and Millennium with Celebrity. Compared to them Princess is unfortunately a way way distant last. First and foremost the quality of the cooking in the main ... 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

This cruise was the centerpiece of our trip to South Korea and Japan. It was our first time visiting the far east and we wanted a part of our trip to be easier and more relaxing so decided to take a one week cruise. We started our journey ... Read more

I chose the Royal Princess based on the itinerary. I spent over a year planning for this 'once in a lifetime' trip with my 21 year old daughter. I am sad to say it certainly did NOT live up to our expectations. Primarily because of the ... Read more

I have no idea why we picked this cruise. At the time if seemed like a good idea to take my disabled (wheel chair bound) wife on a cruise to PNG to see where I grew up. Bad move - this cruise was full of the rudest people I have ... Read more

We have been on many cruises with 10 different lines, with about half on Princess (30+). I'll admit this review is biased. Having plenty of advance warning about the "wonderful" changes Princess had done to the Island Princess, ... Read more

Family cruise for my dad's 70th and we were a party of 10. Ended up on the Golden Princess because of the destination (we wanted to go to Rabaul where most of my family are from) and the timing suited majority of the family. I was a ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the same reason I always do, the itinerary. I thought the timing was really good too since I knew the ship was just coming out of dry dock in the Bahamas. Unfortunately, turned out they weren't there to do ... Read more

As indicated in the title, we really enjoyed the British Isles itinerary. The excursions were very well-planned, entertaining, and informative and the weather was better than expected. Our balcony cabin (C259), however, was cramped and ... Read more

First time I went on a cruise and I honestly had the best experience there is! It was comfy, I didn't experience any motion sickness at all while at sea and everything was smooth. The crew was amazing. There are too many of them to mention ... Read more

If you fly from the East Coast to Hawaii you may spend 11 hrs flying. However, 5 1/2 hrs to SFO, hop in a cruise ship and you maybe saving $1500 if you count airfare, hotels, food, tours etc./ Things to remember: passport, book your ... Read more

Warning: This review is long, but worth reading if you are seriously considering a cruise on the Star. If you want to move on quickly I’ll say my overall impression of the ship (including all services and amenities) is below average, ... Read more

Wonderful food at the buffet, dining rooms and specialty restaurants, and the service was superb. We had an aft stern room with a bit bigger balcony, and it was fantastic. The rooms were quite sound proof, we only heard our neighbours door ... Read more
