Loved the Cruise,the ship and the itinerary. Liked the layout of this ship better then the others on the princess line, Food was good but Coffee still needs help.We used all Princess bookings. Let me just say I don't like to shop high end so any shopping I was looking for was homegrown. We used all Princess bookings. Stayed at Grosvenor House London pre-cruise. Nice location but under new management and re-construction occurring. Rooms were lovely. Would we do this hotel again?-no. All transfers to and from the ship were handled great.We flew into Heathrow. Ship was awesome, we liked the Royal Princess ship better then the Carribbean princess. Better Layout of Public areas. Ports and Shore excursions- St Peters port was a tender,Highlights of Guernsey tour by the bus was boring. If the weather is good walk the town. Cobh- Train to Cork was good, shopping is really just a mall. Cobh has great pubs and music in the afternoon. Liverpool- Highly recommend North Wales Highlights tour -Chirk Castle tour was , my favorite. Beautiful Castle , great grounds , the 1/2 hour train ride was OK, but the little village you get time to shop in was adorable. Dublin- Glendalough tour was boring , had a better time in the city of Dublin in the pubs and window shopping. Greenook- nothing to do in this port, it is used for the Tattoo so don't bother wandering around. Tattoo was great fun-transportation and direction in and out of the venue from staff was great. invergordon- Great port town to wander, very friendly. We did Cawdor Castle tour which was just ok not great, Outside of castle was interesting but inside was to modern for a castle. I would go to inverness next time. South Queensferry- Tendered and good souvenir shops at the port. We loved the area of Edinburgh so much when walking to the tattoo we took the public shuttle back to the castle and walked the Royal mile. The public shuttle from South Queensferry, drops you off near Prince street in Edinburgh,which is the high end shopping district. You can walk to the castle within 15 minutes. This was our favorite town. It had everything, cute shops, pubs, cafes, and the buildings were spectacular. LeHavre- we took the Paris city drive and Seine River cruise tour. Tour did provided as offered but you really needed to walk the city more to appreciate. Bus seating was very tight. A boring 3 hour ride to and from Paris, a drive by the attractions and the river cruise was not worth our time. Although the lunch cruise was a lovely boat I would have wanted more time wandering the city. Would not recommend to see Paris this way. All things considered , great cruise. Food and entertainment better then on Princess cruises in the Caribbean region. and entertainment better then on Princess cruises in the Caribbean region. Read Less
