Lovely ship, great staff
Lovely ship but very very cold in some parts of public areas including dining rooms, bars and theatre. passengers were wearing coats even on the formal evenings, it was so cold. Food was acceptable but nothing special especially in dining room. Entertainment was very good and staff very friendly and helpful. excursions were expensive.
Royal Princess is a beautiful ship with excellent service and accommodation. The food was good and varied and followed the American trait of serving huge amounts of meat and one potatoe and sparse veg and I missed the big salads found on other cruise lines. I usually travel with Cunard to enjoy the ballroom dancing but was not disappointed with Royal Princess. Although there is no dedicated ballroom the beautiful atrium is huge with a large dance floor and band to match. All of the musicians were excellent especially Deborah and the party band. Drinks prices as on other ships is a sore point with me as i live near France and can buy 5 litres of cabernet wine for 10 euros ie 2 euros per liter which gives four 25 cycle glasses. The ten euros buys me 40 glasses of wine in Calais or 1 glass on Royal Princess which is ale to avoid tax while at sea. Needless to say the glass of wine which I enjoy with my meal at home is missing whenI go on a cruise. On the positive side the waiters cheerfully served me a free glass of water anytime I asked.. Overall an lovely ship which I would return to. David
Great cruise, visited some lovely places and food on the ship was excellent. The service in the dining room was pedestrian at best and the wines were expensive. The 15% service charge was a joke because there were no wine waiters in the dining room! The bottle of wine you left for us was very appreciated. Thank you. The ship was okay but there was no adults only bar inside on the top desks where we could go for a quiet late in the evening. There were 2 bars on top but they were open air not ideal in an English summer.
It need a b it of tlc. The carpets were shabby and the staff could have benefited from customer service training . The entertainments director Mat O was brilliant ransfe Princess charge for absolutely everything. A 15 m minute transfer was 8 dollars per person each way. total rip off
My first princess cruise ship very good food ok entertainment poor. Princess cruise bar very expensive shuttle buses32 dollars wow.15% surcharge,gratuity 30 dollars per day for two people ., Will never book Princess again money making machine
Ship was good, every where was clean, room was a good size, staff and food were good with plenty of variety, entertainment was ok but could be better, only real moan was the cost of the excursions, very expensive, we did a lot of the excursions on our own for a fraction of the price.
Overall a good cruise, round the UK. The food was probably the best we've had on any cruise. However, gratuities were excessive, and we had to pay for shuttle buses at ports. Good entertainment, and quizzes, but very poor library on board
My husband and I took our very 1st cruise in August this year to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. From start to finish we had an amazing time, We booked through Iglu who were very good to sort our flights too. Will book with them again for our next cruise. The Royal Princess is a beautiful ship, could not fault anything from staff, cabin, food,and entertainment and the itinery around the Med. The staff made our Anniversary so special from baloons, cake, beautiful swans in our room when we arrived back from port call in Santorini to singing " happy anniversary " in the restaurant. FANTASTIC!!!We had a balcony cabin mid aft, Caribe deck 10 not to far from the lifts, great room aand Balcony was enough room to sit and watch the world go by. All in all we would love to thenk Igle for sorting our very special cruise, and the Royal Princess for making us feel very special. One of our best holidays. We are now looking to book with the Royal princess again for 2019. Once again Thank you.
