Slightly Disappointing

We boarded the ship easily and was really surprised and pleased our room was ready. Rome, Naples, Sicily, Dubrovnik, Kotor, Corfu, Corsica, Toulon, Barcelona, Toulon, Dlorence, Katakolon, Mykonos, Santorini, Kotor, Naples, Rome. We booked this holiday as a 21 day Mediterranean cruise. When we got on the ship we discovered it was what they call a back to back cruise and we were currently on a ...

Could Be Much Better for a Good Brand as Princess

Never saw the entertainment team really, as when onboard we were on top deck and they never done any entertainment that we saw or read in the itinery up there. The band 'atomic' were excellent but only did one sail away on top deck.... the weather sometimes might have influenced why they undertook their sessions indoors though. All the shows in the theatre were excellent, the entertainment ...

Traveled as a single and loved the Royal Princess

Cruising Europe was on my bucket list after 35 plus cruises on 17 different cruise lines to six of the seven continents over the years. Princess had the best itinerary, called the Grand Mediterranean, which was actually two cruises back-to-back for 21 days total. I had cruised Princess before and liked it, but truthfully only chose them due to the itinerary and price. But from now on Princess ...

Great Itinerary, Nice Ship

Once we decided on the Mediterranean, this itinerary and ship worked well for us. Although I wasn't excited about sailing on such a large ship I knew it would offer more variety of on-board activities, entertainment,shops, eateries and deck areas. The ship was very nice but we both missed the motion of a smaller ship such as Island Princess. It was intimidating for me to try and find my way ...

Poor Food Quality/Variety was a Sad Surprise

This was to be our 5th cruise and our 4th cruise line we've been on, and we were excited, having heard great things about Princess and their high food quality, the more adult crowd, and we liked the layout of the Royal. I like to start out with the Good first, so without a doubt, the staff on this cruise was absolutely THE best we have ever experienced. Everyone we encountered was "genuinely" ...

Our first trip on the Royal, but we cruised three times on the pretty much identical Regal Princess. We did not and do not have a thing to complain about or any regrets about taking this cruise at all!! The ship, and we spent time in 95% of the ships public spaces we always very neat and clean and we always found everything to be in good working order. We booked a deluxe balcony on deck 15, ...

Cruising on the Royal

We chose this cruise because of the ports and we like cruising with Princess. We liked the ship. There was only one negative about the Royal. We usually like to read and relax at some time during the day and have always done so on deck 7 of previous ships where there is comfortable seating and having windows to look out of. On the Royal, they had the area for seating but all the windows were ...

We choose this ship because we were celebrating our anniversary and found it very charming. The service was excellent, the tours were perfect and we really enjoyed the food. We participated in the game shows and really enjoyed that also. I went to the spa and had a excellent message. The shows in the theater were very entertaining as well. The cruise director was great and they had the show ...

So disappointing

Food is mediocre, entertainment unoriginal, excursions not planned well (why am I in a shopping port on a Sunday? Florence on a Monday when museums are closed?). On one excursion we were "dumped" in a town with a map that had been photocopied so often it was no longer readable. In another city, our tour guide was dressed like he'd been living on the street, and we could only understand a ...

Overall experience was very good. We booked a fly cruise from the UK, and the flight was uneventful and punctual. The transfer to the port was good, and the embarkation process very efficient, despite the fact that we are not eligible for priority boarding. The process took about 30 minutes, and we were on board in time to enjoy lunch in the MDR (which is only available until 1.30) which was very ...
