Disappointing Food
By Kathleen Shaughnessy on 14 March 2019
Princess Cruises | Majestic Princess

We were very disappointed with the food onboard. We ate in the dining room only twice because of the limited choice of menu and several other couples we talked to had done the same. The food in the buffet was limited in choice, probably because of the number of items provided for the large number of Chinese people on the ship. Whilst we understood this, we were more disappointed that the food was often not...

It has to be a 3 star for me.
By Edgar Hall on 28 February 2019
Princess Cruises | Island Princess Reviews

At a closer look, the Island Princess is showing its age. The rooms are very comfortable, but small. The beds were the highlight, very comfy. The cabin attendant was excellent and thoughtful. However there was no tea/coffee making facilities in the cabin, so you could only order for the morning tea/coffee (complimentary) but the rest of the day, you had to find that beverage elsewhere. (a small thing, but its just a kettle and makings...

Enjoyable but flawed!
By John Hammersley on 25 February 2019
Princess Cruises | Coral Princess Reviews

Overall an enjoyable cruise. Spoiled a little by the 4 hour delay to board (no apology and no plausible reason given), workmen on the ship throughout the cruise, 40 minute queue for anytime dining (resolved after we complained).

Anytime Dining Menu not so good
By Wendy Homeyard on 14 February 2019
Princess Cruises | Star Princess Reviews

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our cruise but some night’s we struggled with the content of the menu in the anytime dining restaurant, also if it said pie that was exactly what you got nothing else but the Horizon buffet was fine great selection of everything. Wine was a bit expensive probably upwards of £7 for a medium sized glass & then there wasn’t much choice ‘by the glass’. Also could have done with a variety...

10 days Panama Canal
By William Martin on 05 February 2019
Princess Cruises | Island Princess Reviews

It was unfortunate that we couldn’t use tenders for our first stop at Grand Cayman which meant that we had three days at sea at the start of the cruise – one of those things – that’s cruising! The seas were however, rougher than we expected but we are used to that. The partial transit of the Panama Canal was the highlight and we resisted the temptation to get off the ship so that we...

Disappointing ship
By Marjorie Adderley on 04 February 2019
Princess Cruises | Golden Princess Reviews

Having been on many Princess ships that we’ve enjoyed, this being our reason returning to Princess, unfortunately, we found the Golden Princess not up to their usual standard. Very noisy whatever part of the ship you were in, even on our balcony loud music could be heard coming from the upper deck. Quite a number of leaks around the ship, so having to dodge buckets. Seating in the atrium very uncomfortable as the insides of...

Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

Arrived home on 23rd Jan 2019 from a 14 day cruise around Asia. Joined ship in Shanghai and it was delayed. We were supposed to board at 1300hrs. But they made excuses, Fog, Port closure, Immigration till this day never been told the truth! So we ended in what can only be described as a ‘Holding Pen’ with the ship in site. No reps from the ship no updates, only local Chines herding you into...

Not good enough
By Elizabeth Cameron on 21 January 2019
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

Incomplete information provided on all sales materials – failing to advise that their glass floor “Sea Walk” heavily utilised by all guests – shadow balconies at levels 14 and 15. So paying for a private balcony and unable to use it during the whole trip! Food and service in all three “speciality restaurants” excellent, unfortunately not the same in other main dining areas. Food continually served cold, and massive inconsistency of service, which went from...

Standards dropping
By brian on 03 December 2018
Princess Cruises | Caribbean Princess Reviews

Our 13th cruise with Princess and dress code standards are dropping. Gentlemen were allowed in main restaurants in the evening wearing shorts. Also on formal nights, approx 50% of gentlemen in main restaurants did not wear a jacket or tie. The ship has been redesigned since our last cruise on her. Princess Links (putting green) is now on deck 19, the highest deck with no wind protection making it unusable while the ship is at...

Hawaii Islands
By Peter Clark on 28 November 2018
Princess Cruises | Star Princess Reviews

Old ship in need of refurbishment. Very expensive drinks, food not as good as previous (they seem to be using cheaper foods and not much choice or variety). Very pricy tours. Hawaii was good but not rushing back.

An excellent Cruise BUT……………
By Christopher Harley on 29 October 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

We left Southampton on time and arrived in our first port Vigo to mixed weather – we did not book any Princess tours/excursions as they were so expensive – our second port of call was supposed to be Madeira but because of Hurricane Leslie we had to miss this port and go directly to our third port Arrecife; We arrived at about 12noon on Saturday but found the local shops all closed at about 5pm....

Excellent cruise.
By Louie Wolstencoft on 29 October 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

My husband myself and 2 friends arrived back from the Canaries cruise on 21st October. We enjoyed every minute aboard. The crew were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent with plenty of choices at every mealtime. We missed going to Madeira due to the threat of hurricane Lesley but we had 2 days in Lanzarote to compensate. We were able to travel further afield than 1 day allows. On sea...

My first cruise
By Mrs Diane Davies on 23 October 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

Public seating area’s inadequate at peak times (Cafe and bar area’s) also if you did not allow at least 30 minutes prior to evening shows in the theatre you could not guarantee a seat (standing room only in most cases), followed by a rush at the end to find seating in other entertainment area’s, not a very relaxing experience. Also, sea days could have done with more activities please. However we found the shows were...

Short break – short change
By Matt Andrews on 18 October 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

Itinerary included a tender visit to Guernsey, which was cancelled before we boarded the ship. The reason given was forecasted high winds. Redirected to Brest, France which was virtually closed being a Sunday, struggled to find a cafe and nearly resorted to going into a Subway. Additionally, the crew had only rigged up one working gangway, which served both on and off. It was not suitable for this level of traffic, especially as at times...

weekend break
By roy gordon on 16 October 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

Our first cruise with Princess very disappointed. Layout of the ship seemed wrong as there was nowhere to sit that was not connected to a bar Food was basic and staff seemed flustered especially at breakfast. Entertainment was adequate what there was but long gaps where nothing happened except quizzes, which we do not like. Being a weekend trip there were lots of groups who were noisy and often worse for wear. The chosen itinerary...

Mediterranean Cruise
By Veronica on 15 October 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

We had a lovely time on the Saphire Princess. The weather was perfect, the sea very calm. The ship was in very good condition, especially the comfy beds and pillows, just heaven! We were very impressed with the staff. Everyone on the ship went out of their way to be helpful and every request was received with a smile and very helpful response. The food was excellent and served by happy, efficient and knowledgeable staff....

Autumn break on Sapphire Princess
By Mike and Hilda May on 15 October 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

We left Southamton with gale force winds but by the time we arrived at our first port of call Vigo the sun was shining and the temperature was 27c which we had for the next 12 days. With over 2,500 passengers at times everyone seemed to want to go to the most popular entertainment, you had to arrive early and sit around for ages, so we missed quite a lot, what we did see was...

Mediterranean Adventurer
By Michael Wright on 15 October 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

Really enjoyed the cruise, couldn’t fault it at all, the service to and from Southampton also excellent, only one gripe, I wasn’t all that keen on Ceuta as a port call, but as Florence and Toulon were places I really wanted to see I overlooked that.

Mediterranian cruise
By R.A.Fisk on 15 October 2018
Princess Cruises | Sapphire Princess Reviews

Excellent cruise on a fine, well organised ship. One complaint only . The theatre is far too small. On every occasion we arrived at the theatre at least 20 minutes before the performance, all seats were taken. Otherwise, a delightful experience.

New York to Quebec
By Michelle McDermott on 15 October 2018
Princess Cruises | Royal Princess Reviews

Sailing from New York in September should have been a pleasant experience, unfortunately a torrential downpour and the lack of supervision by Princess resulted in dry luggage becoming soaked, the luggage was delivered to the cabin after the ship had sailed in a terrible condition. Clothing wet and in a poor state. The ship’s answer was to provide tokens for the self-service laundry machines, however, as elite members of Princess Captains Circle, we were able...
