Review summary

We love cruising. Love Princess. Saw a lot of different ports. I really enjoy being able to see the history of the different places. People are the same wherever you travel. We need to remember that! Fantastic cruise

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Very smooth

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food is always great on Princess. Just wish I could eat all of it! I am celiacs and they do a wonderful job in the main dining rooms, and buffet with normal parts of the meals. Desserts for GF people still need work. More cookies, pastries and cakes. We cannot survive on just soft desserts

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
My husband and I are more laid back, and don’t join all the classes and other activities that are offered. We do the gym, promenade deck. And pool. Princess does not have rock walls or roller coasters etc. they cater to the more mature acting adult. Our grandkids always have a fun time, even without all that extra stuff.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Love the entertainment although we cruise enough that we have seen most of the shows.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Princess goes above and beyond. The staff is always willing to help and always there. We did the ultimate ship tour this time and you see just how hard they really do work.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Always working and maintaining the ship

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Actually, just before sailing we took the ‘move over’ deal and gave up our mini suite for a balcony cabin C442. Our steward, Geraldo was great, the cabin was clean all the time. Size was good—even being just a balcony and very comfortable.

Ship tip

It is quite large. If you want to do the steps instead of elevator, book a cabin mid ship

Ports of call

Copenhagen, Denmark

5 out of 5
We were here a few days prior to the cruise and walked around on our own.

Stockholm, Sweden

5 out of 5
Did the ice bar and old town.

Helsinki, Finland

5 out of 5
Lovely area. Toured town and village. Always like the older aspects the best

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

3 out of 5
Did the river cruise one day and the 2 palaces the next. You go thru passport control each day as though you are entering and leaving the country whenever you leave ship. Felt a bit uneasy there, but knew we were safe with Princess. Would NOT have taken a tour outside of Princess or walked around on our own. They have done a wonderful job restoring all that was bombed out

Tallinn, Estonia

5 out of 5
Tallinn was beautiful. Walked around on our own. Picture perfect

Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany

4 out of 5
3 hour train ride into Berlin. Had to see all the historical sites. Part of me wishes I’d just stayed in the port town of Warnemünde. It was so picturesque.

Oslo, Norway

5 out of 5
Oslo is gorgeous. Why did my great grandparents ever leave?

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Very easy and smooth. Got us to the airport early
