Hi we wewre on the Allegra in May this year they have three formal nights which were very enjoyable. We had the early sitting 6.30 which suited us as by the time everyone had chosen and eaten their meal it was about 8.30pm when we left the restaurant the later sitting 8.45 pm means you dont leave the restaurant untill about 10.30pm so we felt it was too late. This of course is down to personal choiceThe ship was lovely the ents team did very well considering they had to cater for different nationalities. The itinery superb .

We had three formal nights; all very enjoyable. If your experience s anything like ours you will have regular visits by the Captain, Head chef and others to make sure you are happy! The so-called theatre is small and you will need to get there early to secure a good view. we had a great time on this "old" ship and like most, we were there for the itinerary rather than exotic luxury! Have a great trip. Hugh Jackson, Stafford .

Thx Hugh - - this is actually for my parents so your comments really help - they are in their 80's and have been a little worried about this cruise which has been booked for their 60th wedding anniversary!

By Tom Harding

Tom Harding's blog

Princess Cruises are set to fall upon the UK Market in 2019 with a record breaking year as they base, not one, not two but three ships in Southampton and that accounts to more than 1 million sailing nights from Southampton and Dover. They will base the Crown Princess and surprisingly enough the Sapphire Princess as we had been lead to believe 2018 would be the only year shed sail from the UK Well it isnt and she will be back from the Far East for 2019 and they will also have the Pacific Prin...
