Chose this cruise by the itinerary. Wanted to sail under the Golden Gate Bridge, lots of sea days and visit 4 islands. Encinada was a waste of time, even the photographers didn't take photos of our arrival as they did on all the islands. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it began and ended in San Francisco, which is only about an hours drive from our home. It was our first long cruise, and Princess Cruises kept us informed on line through their website of all that we needed. ... Read more

It was a fantastic cruise to Hawaii. Had great weather and calm seas. Grand Princess had been in dry dock before our cruise. We had the new bedding and the ship looked like new. Enjoyed all the shows in the Princess Theater. Best ... Read more

First time Princess was a disappointment. We chose this cruise because we wanted to cruise to Hawaii. We knew the ship was older, however, we thought with the renovations it would have been much better. The rooms are very small, carpets ... Read more

The Grand Princess is grand no more. The dry dock in December 2016 brought new carpet in some public areas, amd new mattresses. The state room carpets are still in need of replacement, and the old girl is showing her age in many other ... Read more

This is one of my favorite itineraries. I love the sea days and really appreciate Princess providing 3 varied lecturers over very different topics to help occupy the sea days. I like the fact that the desserts are NOT in the main buffet ... Read more

We went on the Grand soon after her last dry dock and our impression is very favorable. She still shows her age in some insignificant areas but most of the improvements are welcomed. First and foremost if you have ever complained about ... Read more

We chose this cruise in order to visit Hawaii, which we enjoyed. The ship may be a "grand old lady" but the emphasis is on"old" and her wrinkles were showing. For example, the air con. varied greatly from one venue ... Read more

It has been six years since my last Princess Cruise but I have been on six prior to this LA-Hawaii round trip (1/09/17). I was disappointed with some aspects, pleased with others. Bad news first: 1) An unconscionable wait for ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we'd cruised with Princess before and really enjoyed the relaxation and amazing food. This cruise was one for the books. The Embarkation process was absolutely hands-down the best of all cruises we've ... Read more

1) Just a couple of days after leaving San Francisco we began to notice a foul smell. We found out later, from another passenger, that there was some sort of sewage problem on Deck 9. I was on Deck 8 Starboard and the passenger who ... Read more

Chose this cruise because it went to Hawaii and back without flying. The cruise ship left San Francisco late and we missed going under the Golden Gate Bridge in daylight. The ship needed major repairs and updates. The cabin did as well. We ... Read more

With the exception of the Pacific Ocean being very rough we enjoyed our cruise immensely! There wasn't one crew member who was rude or nasty with us. We felt like royalty. The food was excellent and quite a large variety with the ... Read more

This was the typical Hawaii and back cruise out of SF. About half of the guests were from the greater bay area and this is a favorite for regular cruisers. We had a large contingent from the UK, meeting them added to the fun. We were ... Read more

We chose this cruise mostly because San Francisco is so close to home. No flying! Embarkation was a breeze, and we were able to get into our stateroom right away. Our room was on deck 14, which we loved. Sail away was delayed a bit due ... Read more
