Perfectly cromulent. Nice cabin. Fine itinerary. Meh food.

This is our 10th Princess cruise; 15th cruise. We had a suite aft of the ship which means speedy check-in and embarkation, concierge lounge, special area of the dining room. All was fine. The cabin and steward ...

Loved the Mediterranean. Loved the ship. Not happy with almost everything else

This was our 9th cruise with Princess and we have never complained about anything but there's always a first time. Food wasn't very good in taste or variety. Ship was often dirty. It always needed vacuuming and ...

Nice ship / dining is so-so

The ship is fairly new and looks to be in great shape. The staff were fairly attentive. Entertainment was mixed. Music and dance were pretty good, but the comic and magician were so so. We liked the live music in ...

Nice time had by all

I choose this cruise because it had several of the port cities I have especially wanted to see -- Dubrovnik, Rome, Barcelona, Toulon/Provence -- so booked the 10 day portion only of the cruise. Princess is our ...

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 ...

Nothing to complain about except the slow internet service.

We loved the Royal Princess even though it was a different layout from previous Princess ships we've been on. It was full with 3000+ passengers but never seemed crowded. We did anytime dining, didn't make ...

Do your homework- read reviews both positive and negative

We chose this cruise mostly due to the shore stops. A few months after our deposit the stops changed due to unrest in Turkey. For some reason Princess booked Kotor stop 3 times! Even though I was dissapointed in ...

First time on the Royal

Prior to boarding this ship, we did a week long trek across Italy, along a similar line to the cruise tour option, but as we've been to all of those places before (Venice, Florence, Rome) we did our own version. ...

Wonderful Cruise

We chose this cruise as it departed from Rome where we had spent a few days. We loved the cities it went to and it was a good cross section of the Mediterranean. We also prefer not to have too many sea days. We had ...

Our worst dining experience ever.

This is my complaint that has been logged with Princess Cruises. First day, 17th May, on board, we had been recommended to Sabatini’s restaurant and decided to book a table on the 20th, my wife’s birthday. ...

Good overall but below average compared to other lines.

Wanted to try Princess. We've been on several lines and heard that Princes was good. We were a bit disappointed compared to others we've taken. I'd say, the overall cruise was good, but below average compared to ...

Dissatisfied!

It was a nice ship and the rooms were kept clean but the food was not very good and the ship was geared towards older people. The only good meal we had was at the Crown Grill which we had to pay extra for. There was ...

Great Ship and Great Itinerary

We have been on the Royal before and think she is a great ship. The major issue is that on Royal you cannot walk around the whole outside of deck 7 Promenade like you can on other Princess ships. Service was ...

No more cruises with Princess.

Everywhere we went there was noise and music all the time. The only place we could find peace and quiet was in our cabin. We booked a trip to Europe and everything was "American" on the ship. I felt like we were in ...

Good cruise but food & entertainment patchy

Embarkation was easy in Rome and our cabin size was as expected & comfortable. The balcony is a bit small but adequate. We used anytime dining and as we were happy to share never waited very long. The restaurant ...

This was our first (and probably last) cruise. The ports were great, and the ship was beautiful, however the food was disappointing. We basically ate for fuel. It was hard to get a spot to soak up the sun on deck, ...
