Great way to see the UK highlights. We were not interested in the stop in France, but a lot of cruisers wanted to see Paris or the WW2 sights. In my opinion, I would have preferred a strictly UK route with 2 days in Dublin. The day in ... Read more

My wife and I are late 50s and live in the Toronto, Canada area. We chose this cruise based on the itinerary. Never having been to the U.K. before, we thought a "sampling" of several major cities would be ideal and help set the ... Read more

The only reason we booked this Cruise to Norway was the perfect date for shoot term finish. We had stress free travel down to Southampton, which we loved, but the Mini Suite does not look any different to the Balconies we experience on ... Read more

We selected this cruise because we loved the itinerary. We hadn't cruised with Princess before, but loved the chance to see the Orkneys and visit Juno Beach. There wasn't any major issue wrong with this ship, but a whole bunch of little ... Read more

My husbandq and I cruised British Isles July 12-24 on Caribbean Princess. First and last Princess cruise, ship too big, lacked personal touch. On Holland America, (which we have cruised 7 times) the captains greeted passengers at formal ... Read more

This ship has been recently redecorated while in drydock & looks great but there were some plumbing issues in our bath room that still needed to be fixed-slow shower drain & flusher not working. The beds were new & ... Read more

Great cabin, plenty of room and we had a larger than usual balcony. Mattress was poor and the new bedding made it even worse-especially for those with a bad back. Bad idea.Staff was warm, friendly, professional & exceptional. ... Read more

We actually spent 4 days in London prior to the cruise. I arranged for Silver Fleet Car Service to pick us up at Heathrow and take us to the flat we rented on the East End. Ian was our driver and we had fun and informative conversations ... Read more

We chose this cruise as a gift for our 17-year-old granddaughter. She wanted to go to St. Petersburg. We chose this cruise rather than the one on the Regal Princess with a similar itinerary because it started and ended in Southampton, ... Read more

In my opinion, Princess always has the best itineraries. We have done Alaska, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Norwegian Fjords and Baltic and chosen Princess each time based on the best itinerary. The food is good, not special. Club ... Read more
