Now the trip I dreamed of. Rushed and the food was not good.

Jul 7th, 2019

Not what expected. I would have thought the food would have been better. The balcony was a big disappointment. This is my 3 rd. cruise and I don't believe I would go on one again. The shore excurions were rushed and just a lot of tours junk.

Most horrible return trip ever

Jul 3rd, 2019

My family booked our cruise and all travel arrangements through princess cruise lines. There was a total of four couples on the trip coming from various places in the United States. My wife and I were coming from Des Moines Iowa we chose to fly out of Omaha Nebraska. My sister and her husband were coming from Dallas Texas. We had two couples coming from Austin Texas. All of our flights were supposed to join up in New York City to fly to Athens Greece. This did not work out because of the airline has nothing to do with princess cruise lines. Our flights on leaving Barcelona you would think that all eight of us would travel to New York and then separate from there. This was not the case our flight went from Barcelona to Zürich Switzerland and then to Newark New Jersey and then on to Omaha Nebraska. The couple that were from Dallas flew from Barcelona to Germany to Dallas and the couples that came from Austin Texas flew to London to New York to Austin Texas. My wife and eyes flight in Switzerland was delayed and we would not be able to make our connection at the next stop so they rerouted us to Germany. From Germany we flew to Chicago with only one hour to make it through customs and onto the next flight. Emotionally my wife was not able to handle and had a breakdown in customs. If it was not for a couple of TSA agents we would’ve not made our flight the lines were at least three hours long with less than one hour to make our flight. I do not understand why for couples wanting to travel together and princess cruise lines setting up all the travel rangement‘s could have done this to my family. I feel that there was no regard to trying to keep us together after the cruise. Just made our trip on a trip that we will never forget and that’s not in a good way. It took my wife and I almost 40 hours to get back from Barcelona Spain to Omaha Nebraska because of the arrangements that princess cruise lines arrange for us. We had a decent cruise except for a couple hiccups but because of the travel arrangements a princess cruise lines arranged for us we will not be using them ever again .

Great Transatlantic Cruise

Jun 22nd, 2019

The only complaint we had about this ship is that there wasn't anyplace to sit and read quietly, without music blaring. We finally found one place, the Adagio Bar, that was comfortable and quiet.
