Third trip on the Royal and loved it again. Big enough to swallow up all 3K people and never feel crowded. Booked a suite R611 and was happy we did, the extra space let us entertain our friends and plenty of room to move around in. In ... Read more

This was my 8th cruise with Princess, and most likely will be my last. I first sailed on the Island Princess 9 years ago to Alaska and the experience was so wonderful I had since become a habitual cruiser. However, in the past 9 years the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because friends had been onboard and really loved the ship. We have been on another similar line for many years and wanted a change. The ship was very clean, nice, had a lot of activities with the cruise staff and ... Read more

Nice break for Easter holidays with 6 ports to keep it interesting. Beautiful Piazza with more going on there than other ships. Dining room food about the same - usually very good and sometimes on either side of that. Rooms (I was in ... Read more

This was our first TA and we had chosen the Crown Princess because we had been on the Caribbean Princess at the end of 2016. That experience was only okay, but we got a good price for our accommodations based on a "Hugh" onboard ... Read more

Enjoyed this cruise in spite of some times bad weather. Mother Nature will do what she will do, no matter how much you may wish otherwise. We were expecting warmer weather than we got in the Mediterranean, but we soldiered on. The ... Read more

Wanted to do a transatlantic and this was my opportunity. Food was great and the opportunity to meet new people was easy. The broad range of activities was nice. There's always something to do. Liked the open seating concept during ... Read more

Cabin C252- a SAFETY HAZARD for sure-folded up bunk beds on side walls, no room to get down the sides of the beds plus head hits bunk beds causing bruised head and shoulder and broken eye glasses. These bunk beds do not show in the room ... Read more

We have always taken transatlantic cruise on other Princess ships and had great experiences. However on this cruise there were numerous issues. -The first night in the dining room we were given 3 pats of butter at a table with four ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it had ports we were interested in, plus between the on-board credit and free gratuities you could not beat it. The other reason I am writing is the previous review I feel was way too biased. It is true ... Read more

This was our first transatlantic cruise, second on this ship, third with Princess, and seventh cruise overall. Because we enjoy at sea days and onboard activities, this cruise was a lot of fun. Many people asked us how we keep from ... Read more

My boyfriend (late 20s couple) and I sailed on the Crown Princess's Transatlantic Crossing from April 8-22, 2017. Our experience left much to be desired, and we have quite a number of complaints and issues. Our issues with the cruise, from ... Read more

The ship is older but the food was good, the service was excellent. We never felt like we were imposing (like the bigger ships you can be). We joined up with a Great group of people (from cc) and it felt like family (in a good way). The ... Read more

We sailed out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and since we live in Florida we didn't go until time to board the ship, the Caribbean Princess. We were celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Our cabin was nice but not as large as some ... Read more

We chose this cruise as we are Elite Princess cruisers and this trans-Atlantic cruise gave us a chance to end up in London to spend some time with our youngest son and his wife. We booked a Club Class mini-suite. We will never book ... Read more

We received an email stating that boarding would be delayed and not to arrive until 5:00 pm. Since we live close, this wasn't a problem. We did show up a little earlier as a friend said that they boarded with no problem. Our boarding ... Read more

After several cruises, we decided to go for a transatlantic one and see how we would like so many days at sea. We liked it a lot! We live in Florida and rented a car through Budget for drop off near the cruise pier. This worked real ... Read more

This cruise was not all that bad but it wasn't all that great either. Past Princess cruisers we met on board asked us to give Princess another go. We cruise based mainly on highest value - lowest price for high quality. Pros: The ... Read more

We were on the CP for the transatlantic after it came out of drydock. We have been on the CP twice before, and thought I'd post my opinion of some of the changes, good and bad. Hits - New beds very comfortable, new layout for buffet ... Read more

Chose this cruise to get to Ireland. We have sailed about 18 times with Princess. The newly refurbished updated Horizon Court was very nicely appointed. The problem was the food at lunch was not very good. There was not much variety and it ... Read more

We had an adequate transatlantic crossing. It had some good points, but overall was just OK. We've been on 22 cruises and traveled many lines, some luxury and some mass market, but this was our first time on Princess. First the things ... Read more
