Embarkation was the best yet! We were on ship by noon! Loved the "soda" card and the the milkshakes and hot choc! We have always wanted to go Hawaii and this was a great way to get there. Relaxing and pampered! Days were ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it left out of San Francisco and it was 15 days. The cruise was nice. The ports were good. The food was okay. The room was very comfortable. The entertainment in the Princess was exceptional. I enjoyed every ... Read more

We were on the April 23, 2017 departure to Hawaii on the Grand and I have to say I had some misgivings prior to the trip due to some unflattering reviews. But we could not find much wrong with the ship: small areas of rust (it's a SHIP, on ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we had never sailed to Hawaii and I wanted to see how well I would do on long Sea Days across an Ocean. The embarkation went very quickly and there was no wait, we boarded around 1:15 pm. This ... Read more

We did not have a chance to explore San Francisco before departure since we travel from the east coast the same day as departure. Don't expect to get airport transfers from Oakland to the ship, there aren't any...so, you'll need to take a ... Read more

Chose this cruise at short notice because it was a 2-week duration, the price was reasonable and the destination was appealing. The 4-day journey to the islands was cold, windy and wet (San Francisco to Hilo), so outdoor and balcony ... Read more

Never been to San Francisco or Hawaii so this was an excellent 1st time experience to these places. Did not manage to get to the meet and greet, so didn't meet any of the fellow passengers on this cruise from the Roll Call which was a ... Read more

Easy embarkation and debarkation from San Francisco. Awesome to sail under Golden Gate Bridge and past Alcatraz island. Ship showing it's age but overall very nice. Elevators are slow as everyone tries to pack in with no elevator ... Read more

I chose this cruise because Princess is meant to have a good reputation. This was advertised as a 5 star cruise and had been re-vamped prior to us boarding. This ship has been re-furbished in some areas but not all and our cabin was not ... Read more

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

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

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
