Chose this trip as a 27 day itinerary. However they also sold as two different trips confusing their own systems and people. Transatlantic itinerary was changed dropping some ports (Rotterdam, Vigo, Azores) and ...

Tired old ship with tired old onboard activities & substandard shore excursions

Pricing: Princess originally offered this 5-port transatlantic voyage at $2k each for midship balcony cabins. Upon eliminating 2 ports and substituting 1 port, the balcony price reduced to $1,500. We were told ...

Ports of Call great---ship needs some work done on it.

We enjoyed the ports of call except for missing Le Havre on the 12 day British Isles portion of the cruise. But the ship needs some serious work done on it. The air conditioning didn't seem to work all through the ...
