Dining on board with Princess Cruises

If you're like me, the first thing you think of when you imagine Princess Cruises is the food! :-P Honestly I just thought I would be eating from the buffet every night - little did I know they have more than 10 different dining options on board, ranging from 24 hour cafes and grills to speciality dining venues such as Sabatini's Italian Restaurant, Crown Grill Steak House and The Salty Dog Gastropub! I could definitely get used to this kind of travel ;-) #DiscoverWithPrincess

When I was invited on the trip aboard Crown Princess with Princess Cruises, boarding in Barcelona for a week-long adventure around the Mediterranean, I jumped at the chance to cruise once again.
Crown Princess Cruise
In September I boarded the iconic Crown Princess in Barcelona with seven other bloggers for the trip of a lifetime. We headed off on an incredible week-long adventure around the Mediterranean, stopping at five cities, in four countries in only one week.

My First Cruise with Princess Cruises

In all my years of travelling, one style of holiday I had never experienced was a cruise. That is why I was so thrilled to have the chance to journey aboard the Crown Princess ship with Princess Cruises, visiting the highlights of the Mediterranean including Barcelona, Gibraltar, Marseille, Genoa and Florence over seven days.
Cinque Terre
There are many misconceptions about cruise holidays, the most common being that they are only for older travellers. Well as a 25 year old who recently headed on a 7 night Mediterranean Cruise with Princess Cruises, I can safely say this is something which needs to change.

Luckily, last month I finally got the opportunity to hit the ocean again on a 7-night cruise of the Mediterranean with Princess Cruises, docking in Barcelona, Gibraltar, Marseille, Genoa and Livorno, and it was even better than I remembered as a child – partially because I could drink cocktails this time around!

Are you dreaming of the ultimate 7 Day Princess Mediterranean Cruises Itinerary? Here is everything you need to know for your cruise from Barcelona to Rome!
Princess Cruises experiences
We all know the worst part after unpacking from a vacation is the first part: packing for it. And while some of us pack way ahead, double-checking if the accessories and clothing match, others end up with a last-minute pile of things stuffed in a suitcase. Is that you girl?

Being on holiday on a cruise ship can actually be all-energy consuming! Princess Cruises has 15 decks on their Crown Princess, and when you’re not sunbathing, there’s a chance you’ll be walking all over it getting from one end of the ship to another to get to your next activity.

Straight up: I’ve always been skeptical about going on a cruise. Regular Teacake readers will know that I’m the type of gal you’ll find hiking in the mountains of China, biking through the mountains of Vietnam or driving from the UK to Mongolia in a Toyota Yaris. ‘I don’t do cruises’ I said.

Ahoy there cruiser! Are you new to riding the waves of travel? I was too just a couple of months ago, but I’ve now been bitten by the cruise bug and I’m planning my next trip already. There are many things I learnt, and many tricks I picked up along the way on my 7 Day Mediterranean Cruise with Princess Cruises.
princess cruises with Jess Gylnn
During my recent trip around the Mediterranean Sea with Princess Cruises, I asked you guys on Instagram if you had ever been a cruise before. A staggering 98% of you said that you hadn’t been on one YET, so I guess I have some convincing to do ;-)
During my travels I have experienced many different styles of trips, however (until very recently) I had never been on a cruise. To be honest, although I had thought about it, I always had a number of concerns about going on a cruise – whether the other guests would be much older than me, if I’d get bored during the days at sea, and whether the restaurants and activities would be good quality.

Exploring The Mediterranean With Princess Cruises

Although I had not cruised before, as soon as I read the itinerary for Princess Cruises seven-day Mediterranean tour, I was excited. Over one luxurious week, the itinerary visited some of the Mediterranean’s cultural and culinary hotspots, providing ample opportunity to experience many of the delights of the region.

The Jewel Of Italian Riviera:Cinque Terre

Like many travellers, I’ve long dreamed of visiting the Cinque Terre. Nestled against the rugged coastline of Italy, photographs of the pastel-coloured houses perched precariously close to the cliff-face are some of the most iconic visuals of Italy. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to experience it for myself on a stopover with Princess Cruises.

What To Pack For A Cruise Around The Mediterranean

On my most recent cruise around the Mediterranean, I explored five incredible cities, visited four countries and in the space of only one week I didn’t have to unpack once… I did however spend weeks before the cruise preparing my outfits for the trip, making sure I had the right outfits for each destinations and evening entertainment, including Formal Night.

How To Spend 24 Hours In Provence (+ Provence Vineyard Tours)

For our fourth day aboard Crown Princess we embarked at one of my favourite regions, the French Riviera, on the south east coast of France on the Mediterranean Sea, at the foot of the Alps. We jumped in a taxi and headed an hour away from the coast to Provence – one of the most popular holiday regions in the south of France located within the French Riviera and is famous for its sunny weather, colourful countryside, tradition, wine, food, and language.

How To Spend A Day In Gibraltar (+ Climbing The Mediterranean Steps)

After a whole day at sea and a bout of seasickness, we disembarked in Gibraltar for our first day off-board the ship! I was super excited to be exploring this country after my mum told me that my grandad had always wanted to visit but had never got the chance before he died.

24 Hours In Barcelona (+ Cookery Class)

On our first day of the trip I made the journey from London Luton to Barcelona Airport, where I met Jess from Gap Year Guru. We jumped in a taxi and headed to the Port of Barcelona, before checking in to Crown Princess. Our plan for the day in Barcelona was to explore La Rambla, head to the Gothic Quarter and then join a Barcelona Cookery Class for the evening

11 Things To Know Before You Take A Cruise

For many people, travelling is about the thrill of the new, of discovering things you didn’t know about, satisfying a curiosity to experience something you’ve never seen or done before.
