I know Princess has many loyal devotees. How many Princess cruises have u taken? Which ships? And do u have a favorite?
I've only been on two Princess ships.. the Grand and the Ocean, but will be doing my 3rd Princess, on the Golden for the CruiseMates New Years Bash.
So far, Ocean is my favorite.

I just booked #8 this afternoon -- "Scandanavia and Western Europe" aboard MV Royal Princess departing from Southampton on 10 July. This will be my first cruise aboard MV Royal Princess. Three of my past cruises were aboard MV Sun Princess and the other four were aboard MV Grand Princess, MV Sea Princess, MV Ocean Princess, and, most recently, MV Dawn Princess.
I completely concur with your preference for MV Ocean Princess (or any of her three sisters) over MV Grand Princess.
We have been on 3 Princess cruises with the 4th and 5th already booked. Dawn Princess twice once to Alaska and once thru Panama Canal. Sea Princess once to the Western Caribbean loved both sister ships. Have booked for August on the new Golden Princess. Hope will like the bigger ship, because we also booked the new Star Princess for next April. Cant wait for August though, we have never been to the Meditirranean. Tom and Dan
Hi, I just got off The Sea Princess in April and it was my 4th Princess cruise. I have also sailed on The Dawn and The Grand twice. I loved them all! However, my Grand Princess cruise to the Med was my all-time favorite and The Grand is my favorite ship. Actually, Princess is also my favorite cruiseline even though my next 2 cruises will be on The Explorer and The Summit. I wish I could afford the Golden Princess New Year's cruise, too.
I'm getting ready to sail my 14th Princess cruise in September on the Royal, a ship I've sailed twice already, including it's second voyage ever. I love the old girl and will be heartbroken when she leaves the fleet. I've sailed both Pacific and the late Island Princess many times. I've sailed the original Sun Princess, IMHO the most fun ship to ever set sail, never mind Carnival's ads. I sailed the old Star, which was the Fairstar. I sailed it the year Princess bought Sitmar. It was the only bad cruise I've ever had on Princess. Then I've sailed both Grand and Ocean. Like the line a LOT.
I did the Regal In 1994 and the Food was GREAT!! Take a look at the Suites at my website... <www.cruisesinc.com/msinn> Then look for the 360 tours. I know we did a tour of the Crown or Regal. Both are the same. Take a look and have a great cruise!
I have been on 8 Princess Cruises; 2 on the Regal, 2 on the Sky, 1 on the Sun, and 3 on the Dawn. I am also booked on the Golden in September, Barcelona to Fort Lauderdale (can't wait). Has a great time on every trip.
Hi Kuki et. al.,
We have cruised on the Dawn in '97, Sun in '98, Grand in '99, Crown in '00, and are booked on the Royal for the British Isles in Aug. '01. The Dawn has been my favorite cruise ship so far but I bet the Ocean and Sea would be right up there. We enjoyed all our cruises but have to agree with Dorothy on the Grand Med itinerary as the best ever. I'd gladly do that one again on any ship. I am really looking forward to the Royal and have heard nearly all rave reviews about her (rare, indeed). Anyone have any comments about the Royal or the BI itinerary?
Take care and good cruising,
We have only been on one Princess cruise. The Grand (4/00) and loved it. We are going on the Golden in the Med. 9/13/01, Golden for New Years 12/29/01, and probably Golden again on 02/09/02!!! I quess we will get to know our way around the ship. Ha!! Ha!! Happy Sailing. John & Priscilla
Sea Princess to Alaska 8/99, Regal to Hawaii 4/00. Getting ready for and really excited about going on the Golden Princess in the Mediterranean in June. Yesterday surprised ourselves and added the Sea Princess to Alaska for July - could not resist the rock bottom price. After we received the e-mail from Princess in the a.m. we called our TA, booked and filled out all our info on the Princess website. Now all we have to do is choose shore excursions pay the credit card bill when it comes. (Bummer about that cc bill part!)
Wow! All these Princess fans, isn't it great! I've only been on 3, the Royal Princess, the Island and Crown. In September I'll be on the Royal Princess again and I don't mind repeating because she is a classic beauty and one of the few ships I'd repeat. Too many ships out there to keep sailing the same ones over and over (just my viewpoint for me) but the Royal is an exception.
We've been on 7 cruises in the last 11 years, of those, four on Princess.
Star Princess, Sun Princess, Grand Princess & Sea Princess.
Next March we'll be on the Dawn Princess.
Of the Princess ships, we enjoyed the Star the most, the Grand the least. The Sea second (just a little nicer than the Sun).
Our first cruise was the ocean, this past april. it was wonderful. in march 2002, we will be sailing on the golden to the caribbean. We loved the ocean, wanted to sail on it again, but in 2002 it was only doing 10 day cruises!
