Review summary

Due to mechanical problems, we did not leave Dover until the next day and had to miss our first port, St. Helier. Huge disappointment. We loved Waterford, Dublin, and Edinburgh. The food on the cruise was the absolute worst food we have experienced. Old, inedible, disgusting in the main dining room, buffet, everywhere. We ate off ship in every port. Other than our wonderful room steward, service was poor. We will never cruise Princess again.
