Everything about this cruise was fantastic. From the ports we visited, to the length of the cruise, the onboard entertainment, the exercise class choices, the gym facilities, the games and competitions not to mention the food, all exceeded our expectations! The restaurants were impeccable and the food was first class. The d├ęcor is exemplary and let's not forget the compliment the cruise staff. The cruise director and his assistant were very high achievers, always at the ready to assist with entertainment and of course anything that a passenger might request. The production entertainers put 110% into all of their performances. The cabins were well appointed and always well maintained by the cabin staff. We were even fortunate to have the weather in our favour with only 1 rainy day and 1 overcast day at sea. Most shore excursions were value for money and the arrangements for departing the ship were co-ordinated with great precision. Well done Princess Cruises!!!! Read Less

I just took the 10 Days Regal Princess out of New York last November and had the best food service and selection so I gather a group of friends to do the 10 Days Euro Explorer cruise and what a disappointment! Everyday the breakfast buffet is exactly the same! Where is the smoke salmon? If is behind the station and you have to ask for it! Water down coffee and hard as a rock toast! Lunch buffet is no better unless you go down to the dinning room and catch hell from their waiter staff and yells at you when you do not sit at the right table. No flexibility when you want to eat before 8pm or else buffet is your option! The ship was supposed to be recently refurbished but the cabin still looked aged and only new TV and bed. But I must say the bed is really good and comfortable to sleep on! TV has very good movie selection but you can not check the ship's day program and only via your cellphone or mobile device... why not? Who is their IT Program Director that can't even come up with this basic function? The TV is HD but the in-house program that talked about the shore information recorded from the live sessions are not so you will see all the fizzy video the you can't even read the wording they are showing on shore info.

Ship was not tired as others had advised and we thought it was in good condition. Embarkation and disembarkation were excellent and UK Customs Checks happened on board 2/3 days before docking at Southampton. Restaurants were all excellent and we ate in 8 of them. Food was fantastic, however the service from the waiting staff was at best, variable. From shocking to good.Horizons was the worst and the Manager handled our constructive comments about the service, very well. But even now, 6 days after the cruise our overall thoughts and memories are that the service was the poorest we have ever experienced on any cruise. It was so bad it affected our enjoyment of the holiday. Cabin was excellent - large and good bed, pillows and shower (if a bit small). TV had Sky Sports live and Sport 24 (all the live football and golf you could wish for). On Demand service included the films from the previous day's shown in the Cinema and pool sire Screen. we watched - A Star is Born, Mary Queen of Scots and The Wife. All fantastic and recent releases. Signage for each floor is not clear or intuitive. The gym is good, but staff unwelcoming and stand-off ish. Information provided was mostly "selling" literature which was annoying. Good App, printers to run off on board expenditure and good street maps of the forthcoming ports to allow planning to get off ship. Library was shared with future Cruise Sales - so not a library - more a store for second hand books to be taken away. Ports were fine - best were Monaco, Barcelona and Gibraltar. Although I loved the walk to Le Harve and its museums and beach area. Unless Princess Cruises get their act together on staff attitude towards passengers (staff working in security, gym, restaurants, cafe on Deck 5, Guest relations, common areas and Horizons) we will not be back.
