Decent cruise, but ships should be fixed when they need to be fixed

We wanted to celebrate our 48th anniversary and we've always enjoyed Princess. Our experience on the Island Princess and now the Crown means we'll only use Princess if it is a newer ship. We had fun on the ...

Saw some nice things, BUT!

My first experience with Princess and I have to say on this size ship it will probably be my last. The ship itself was fine, although the elevators were always crammed with people and mobility scooters etc. which ...

Number of movies and venues was great. Food in dining room terrific.

The cruise was free from a L .V. Casino. We did pay $99 to upgrade to a deluxe balcony from the free inside room. Cabin steward Herman was wonderful, efficient and readily met all of our requests. Dining waiter, ...

We chose this cruise because it went around parts of Australia and the overall package seemed a really good deal to us. We hadn't cruised Princess before but had heard good reviews and that it was a step above RCI ...

First Timer Princess Cruiser - Solid Traditional Cruise Ship & Experience

Overall score would be closer to 4 than 3 stars. Royal Princess was a solid traditional cruise ship and experience for their great service and good food. As a couple in their mid 30's, we felt we were the ...

Nice ship, but too crowded.

We had a great time last year on the Caribbean Princess, but not this time on Sky Princess. The embark/disembarkation was easy, the Medallion worked fine to get in and out of the room and buy drinks (all we used it ...

Very good value for money - a good average cruise ship

One of the attractions of this cruise was that it left and returned to Melbourne, which saved us the trip to Sydney. We were a group of six - myself and husband and our 2 adult kids and their partners. We wanted a ...
