Never having been to Dublin, we were excited to be able to spend a few extra days in the city (prior to and after the cruise). Once on the ship, we had a terrific time. Although we totally agree with other reviews that the ship is not in perfect shape, most public areas are lovely (not public restrooms), the entertainment, service and food were great! We had anytime dining and always had a table for 7 or 7:15. Alex, our waiter was perfect and we decided to ask for him every night. The itinerary was great with only 2 sea days. Dublin - we came 2 days early and had a great time. Belfast - Viator (Irish tours) shore excursion of giant’s causeway with Belfast city - $49 per person. Tour bus met right outside to right of the terminal. They filled 2 buses and it was a great and interesting day. Greenock- we had predetermined there was a train or bus to Glasgow. As you exit the terminal, the bus company sold tickets (8 pounds round trip) and since it was raining, chose this as closer to walk to bus than train. It was an express bus and about 35 or so minute trip. When arrived in Glasgow, had to walk a few blocks to get to the main square and pedestrian streets. The train brings you closer on that end... Getting back - it was not an express and took an hour 15 - so, much longer...so give yourself plenty of time. Greenock- Viator shore excursion from thistle tours of outlander sites. Very nice tour - but please be aware you have to go outside the port gate and meet the purple clothed representative - and then walk 5-10 minutes to the bus. ALSO - there is a booth at the end or the port that sells 3 or 4 different tours. It is the same walk to their bus. So - there are options! Our tour went to clava cairns and culloden battlefield, cowdor castle and gardens, which was lovely - through inverness, along lock ness and to buelly priory. We had a great feel for the highlands. Edinburgh - take the 9 pound round trip X99 bus - it is parked at the dock - next to the princes buses. Everyone takes this bus - you do not need the on your own princess $69 transportation - they shouldn’t even offer it as it’s identical! We had prebooked the castle ticket - and walked right in (even though earlier than our specified time). If there is a short or no line for the Crown Jewels- do that first. Otherwise a long wait for much of nothing. Take the free 30 minute tour. We did wait for the gun to shoot at 1 pm - very loud. Don’t waste time to see Harry Potter hogwarts building as covered up for lots of construction and off the beaten path. Just go walk down the royal mile until you feel like walking back to the bus. It’s an amazing setting! Le harve - we took the princess shore excursion to the Normandy beaches. A true highlight to see. A lovely lunch was included at the the town by Gold beach. We collected a little sand at Omaha beach and planted a small flag at the American cemetery. It was my husband’s favorite stop. Southampton- we were going to take the ferry to Isle of Wight to see osborne house, but decided to just be lazy and walk to High Street (easy from the ship - left at end of port and right on High). There is a good long walk of shops, costa coffee and mall with medieval arch midway and other historical buildings to see along the way. We were out a few hours. Guernsey - tendered in and had an RSVP for the guernsey explorer 90 minute bus tour for 10 pounds. Walk across the street from the port to a sign that says “Stand A” - they had some open seats or email them to save a spot. Nice ride and audio. Before the bus we walked in the town streets for 45 minutes. It rained when we came back couldn’t walk to the fort/castle. Cork - toured with e-coach / Butlers - trip to blarney castle and kinsale. Great day - good weather. There was a 90 minute line to climb up and kiss the Blarney Stone and only 1 person on tour went and almost missed the bus to leave. Not the tour to do that. We walked the property and then went to the gift shop and shopping across the street. Kinsale was a sweet town and shared a fish and chips from Dino’s take away and sat in the park to eat. Disembarkation in Dublin was terrible - no taxis waiting and long lines - we used our FreeNow/My Taxi app and had a cab in 2 minutes. We knew about this from spending the 2 days before the cruise.

We chose this itinerary for the destinations. They were all good. Unfortunately there were some disappointing areas that need improvement. The shore excursions were well organized and mostly interesting but quite expensive. The Horizon Court dining venue was always overcrowded caused in part by guests hogging tables to read etc. also they utilize plastic dishes and glasses. Difficult to get dinner seating in the main dining rooms without sharing a table. Overall the staff were very good. We found everyone to be friendly, courteous and professional with very rare exceptions. The food we experienced was also very good with just one or two minor exceptions. There was lots of activities to engage in on board and we found most of the entertainment venues to be good. The Princess Theatre entertainment was largely disappointing but other acts around the ship caught our attention in a positive manner. The new Princess beds are very comfortable. Read Less

Everything was great from getting on to the ship at embarkation day it was fast, it took at least 10 minutes to go through everything. As soon as we got on the ship, our rooms was ready to go so we went to lunch food was super yummy. Then the fun began as soon as we started to sail away. We saw beautiful places all over the British Isles it was so much history and culture learning about people from the past. We loved the dining room team was super friendly they knew us so well, from every detail. We really enjoyed the Canadian beaches tour when we got to Normandy, France it was very emotional but also gave a lot of pride and great for a group of Canadians. The Crown Princess is big ship as well easy to navigate around, I love watching Movies under the stars its super relaxing and peaceful with some chills. Read Less
