Round Britain Cruise

We chose this cruise because of the price and itinerary. Embarkation was very smooth. The cabin (a BB grade balcony) was 'cosy' Dining was mostly excellent (had the odd 'strange' meal). The ...

Enjoyed very much!

Loved all the stops, that is why we chose this cruise. Wanted to see all of Great Britain, Guernsey and the beaches of Normandy. The cabin was tiny too small for 4 grown people. 2 people would be good. We got ...

Went under pressure, returned pleasantly surprised

I have never liked the idea of being crammed onto a boat with 3,000 of my closest friends, so resisted cruising for decades. Finally succumbed to family peer pressure and went on a 12 day tour of the British Isles ...

Most of us were forced to be teatotal on this cruise

The check in went smoothly and we were onboard having lunch in the International Dining Room by 1pm. It was a bit tricky to find and you can’t walk thru, you have to go up, along, then down. We had originally ...

Great cruise but marble stairs in the Atrium proved to be my downfall

Had sailed on the Caribbean Princess previously and had such a great time. The food, both in the buffet and restaurants, was superb. My husband doesn’t like fish but he couldn’t get enough of it on the cruise! ...

Best Princess cruise yet

I just read a review from someone who sailed on this cruise who claimed Le Harve was experiencing a port strike and they missed going to Normandy because the ship didn't dock there. This is false. We certainly did ...
