Quality - but at a price

Princess Cruises is an American company and so I blame myself in part for not spotting the warning signs, even though I have visited the USA many times. Unlike the UK, where the price you see is the price you pay, every purchase made in the USA will cost far more than its advertised price with all kinds of extras added - most significantly, tips. Which is why my extras bill following my 14-night ...

This review includes information on our July 27, 2019, Mediterranean Explorer cruise on the Sapphire Princess. We chose this cruise because it included several less-visited ports that were of special interest to us. CRUISE ITINERARY: MEDITERRANEAN EXPLORER (14 DAYS) Southampton, England; Portimão, Portugal; Cádiz, Spain; Málaga, Spain; Ajaccio, Corsica, France; Ceuta, Spain; Lisbon, ...

I just took the 10 Days Regal Princess out of New York last November and had the best food service and selection so I gather a group of friends to do the 10 Days Euro Explorer cruise and what a disappointment! Everyday the breakfast buffet is exactly the same! Where is the smoke salmon? If is behind the station and you have to ask for it! Water down coffee and hard as a rock toast! Lunch ...

Excellent in many ways but badly let down by poor staff attitude throughout.

Ship was not tired as others had advised and we thought it was in good condition. Embarkation and disembarkation were excellent and UK Customs Checks happened on board 2/3 days before docking at Southampton. Restaurants were all excellent and we ate in 8 of them. Food was fantastic, however the service from the waiting staff was at best, variable. From shocking to good.Horizons was the worst ...

First Med cruise and first cruise with Princess. It exceeded our expectations. Everything was perfect. Staff were so nice. Food was fantastic. The activities and shows were all very good. Such nice treatment from all the crew. We met people from all over the world. This cruise had started in Singapore, picked up some more people in Dubai and then Rome, where we got on. 10 days of spoiling from ...

I went on the London (Southampton) to Rome 10-day portion of this 35+ day cruise. The itinerary went on through Dubai, India, to Singapore. Most of the people I met were on for the full cruise. This was my 10th cruise, 9th with Princess, but my first time seeing Europe by cruise. I am 60 years old, live in the Midwest US, and a solo traveler. The ports were the determining factor in choosing ...

The ports and length of cruise was why we decieded on this cruise. Wanted to see each one of the ports. Some excursions booked with the Princess and some through other companys. Lo ved our large balcony. Lots of storage space. All our bags fit under our beds. Magnets hooks were a great idea for our walls to hold our laynards. Plenty of hangers for two women. food was good, but expected a ...

We have been on 8 cruises so far-Princess, Carnival, Holland America, Celebrity and Royal Caribbean. We chose this cruise because of the itinerary, length of cruise and the way the days at sea were distributed between the port days. It worked out very well. We love the overall design of the ship. Many nice areas to sit, listen to music, have a drink, or be alone (on our balcony). The ...

Just wanted to start of by saying that this is the first time after 12 princess cruises I have posted a review. Usually have every intention but never get around to doing it. What's made me post a review this time is by simply reading a couple of the previous negative reviews which considering we were on the same ship and in some cases the same dates, I am amazed we were on the same cruise as ...
