Best Princess cruise yet

I just read a review from someone who sailed on this cruise who claimed Le Harve was experiencing a port strike and they missed going to Normandy because the ship didn't dock there. This is false. We certainly did dock in Le Harve and many, many of the guest on board went to Normandy. I spent a very lovely day with my friend, who traveled with me, in Honfleur. Others went into Paris, but we've ...

This was our first time with Princess. We loved how on embarking, you were not forced to eat in the buffet. Past cruises have guided all guests to this area. So, that was a good start. Because most of the activities were scattered in other areas of the ship, the atrium was a relaxing place to sit and listen to the music, while enjoying a tea or coffee. Didn't like having to pay for a pot of ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary but then it was changed to eliminate 3 ports we had wanted to visit. We considered cancelling but decided against it and am glad we did. We really enjoyed the weather as it was very warm every day. We were given an upgrade to a balcony and it was nice but needs to be refreshed. The bed was very comfortable but the rug had stains. The crew were very ...

The only reason we decided to do this cruise was because it was such a fabulous bargain. I mean $398 for a balcony on a 15-night cruise ... How do you pass that up? Add in to the calculations the $250 OBC for being a veteran, and the deal got even juicier. Finally, as an extra, extra bonus, they gave us each $100 OBC for the change in itinerary. We seriously debated whether or not to do such a ...

Tired old ship with tired old onboard activities & substandard shore excursions

Pricing: Princess originally offered this 5-port transatlantic voyage at $2k each for midship balcony cabins. Upon eliminating 2 ports and substituting 1 port, the balcony price reduced to $1,500. We were told the skipped ports were because the ship was operating on only one engine instead of two, and could achieve only 18 knots instead of the normal 20-something.Onboard we learned that some ...

This was my 2nd Transaltlantic with Princess and my 6th overall with them. We really enjoyed ourselves. Check in was easy and although I am Platinium, I was not given priority boarding until I showed my number to a Rep. and she then let us aboard, not a biggy, but for sure can set a tone. Our inside cabin on Riviera Deck was fine, every thing we really needed, It was our first inside for such ...

We chose this cruise for itinerary. Unfortunately the second half ports were changed before final payment. We thought long and hard about canceling. Sorry now we didn’t. We flew to Heathrow on Princess EZ air. Flights went well. We landed at 6:15 am and it took almost two hours to get off the plane and through passport control. A nightmare. We found our princess transfer easily and were ...

Many people cancelled this cruise when it was announced that the ship had a propulsion problem and would be traveling slower. They also changed the itinerary to accommodate this reduced speed. But I have to say that you really missed out on a wonderful cruise. We never had any mechanical problems and the ports were good, and the staff, food , entertainment, etc. were outstanding. We traveled ...

Nice Trans-Atlantic Crossing

Chose this cruise because of the sea days. Ports of Le Havre, Bruge, and Lisbon were very interesting with perfect sunny weather. Did not take any of the overpriced Princess shore excursions. Caribbean Princess is beginning to show its age, but is still a nice ship. Dining room service at dinner was very good, but open-seating breakfasts and lunch had only so-so service. Fish dishes were very ...

We sailed the Caribbean Princess from Southampton 9/22/17 to Ft Lauderdale 10/7/17. It was our 45th cruise, but first transatlantic. We used Princess’ EZ Air for Virgin Atlantic BOS to LHR and enjoyed a day in London pre-cruise. Overall we had a very good, relaxing time. We love sea days; the first two were very cool, but the other eight were fantastic. We relaxed on a Lido Deck chaise ...
