All in All it was a good time.

Room Type: Balcony

Overall it was a good trip. Princess didn't do a superb job though. Food was of good quality; yet it lacked imagination, innovation or excitement. It was mostly standard fare and repetitive. The on board activities were mostly boring and the ships show performers really weren't that good. They were extremely disorganized on shore excursions that began on the pier. It was blamed on short staffing which if true is not speaking well for Princess when we paid top dollar for the trip.

We very much enjoyed the ports themselves and the excursions. Aside form the above complaints we had a relaxing time in the British Isles.

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Quality food but not much variety or innovation
Service and Staff
Encountered a few rude employee's
Mostly not exciting except comedian and illusionist. Ships dancers need to improve.
Children's Programs not applicable
Onboard Activities
few good ones but mostly boring
Destinations and Excursions
Ports of Call exciting and interesting
Cabin / Stateroom
Great view and near rear elevator which was a plus
Southampton (London), England
Just a port town
St. Peter Port, Guernsey, Channel Islands
Very beautiful and interesting; great guide
Cobh (Cork), Ireland
Pretty scenery and quaint. Blarney Castle is the Highlight
Dublin, Ireland
Very beautiful cit and interesting too
Liverpool, England
Build it reputation around the Beatles so if your a music fan and or Beatles fan, you'll love it here
Belfast, Northern Ireland
Wonderful City with great interest in the Belfast conflict before the peace agreement
Greenock (Glasgow), Scotland
A very scenic and enjoyable day along the Loch's
Invergordon (Inverness & Loch Ness), Scotland
Loch Ness and the Castle were very interesting and beautiful. Would have been better if tour guide new her tour and didn't read from a card.
South Queensferry (Edinburgh), Scotland
Beautiful City but again on the mile city walk the guide was trying for a record in speed. Left little time for pictures and he didn't try to keep the group together. Left too much time for the Palace.
Le Havre (Paris), France
Definitely Paris is a wonderful city and the taste only makes you want more. Fantastic Guide


Mid ship elevators were always crowded and slow
