My husband and I have cruised several times on several different cruise lines. Our first cruise was in 1998, and since then, we have felt the service and ambiance of cruising has fallen and become much more common- until this cruise. The ... Read more

This is our 8th cruise since 2010 when we went with the family on this ship. My wife wanted London and Paris this time and we had the chance to pick up other ports that were cancelled in 2010. Two were St Tropez and Portofino. It seemed ... Read more

We flew into LHR one day prior to cruise and had private service pick us up and deliver us to the Tudor Marriott in Maidstone. The guys were golfers and the hotel is a country club, which allowed them to start their golfing cruise by ... Read more

This was our 13th cruise and in some ways, our best. The Ocean Princess sailed from Dover on June 6th, headed north to the Norwegian lands above the Arctic Circle. The ship itself is like a cruiser from times past - elegant dark woods, ... Read more

This was a long awaited cruise , so we made it the trip of a lifetime with pre cruise land content, including safari parks. At the end, I was satisfied that I had seen much of sub-Saharan Africa. Though many onboard had sailed from ... Read more

As a couple in our 50’s, we’ve enjoyed traveling all over the world, but this 10 day Polynesian cruise on the lovely Ocean Princess ranks at the top and should be on everyone’s bucket list! The multiple island itineraries ... Read more

We just returned from 10 days on the Ocean Princess sailing on February 19, 2014 from Papeete to Papeete. I would say this has to be the most economical way to go to 6 islands in French Polynesia. We love to travel and we have been to ... Read more

This was a smaller ship, 680 passengers, mostly older, but we enjoyed this thoroughly. When we considered this I settled on Air France from LAX to PAP. However, at the end the itinerary showed return to Papete at 8pm day 9 and disembark at ... Read more

Twelve months prior to this cruise we did a cruise on the Sea Princess out of Australia. It was very disappointing and not what we normally expect from Princess. However, this cruise restored our faith in Princess. This is our second time ... Read more

We took Air France to Tahiti as it leaves LAX late in the morning and arrives first thing in the morning in Tahiti. This is a pleasant schedule. We flew in 3 days early to enjoy some off before joining the cruise. As usual, one of our bags ... Read more

This was our third "small ship" sailing and it did not disappoint. You get to know your fellow passengers and the staff so much better on these small ships than on the larger ones. The cruise was not without its challenges, but was overall ... Read more

Although we have taken 10 cruises on 6 cruise lines, (Princess is our favourite), this was our first on a smaller ship. We selected this cruise first, because of the ports; second because we were intrigued by the reports on the Ocean ... Read more

This was our first experience of Princess Cruises, we were attracted by the itinerary and the opportunity of the " smaller ship" experience. There were pros and cons to both aspects but we certainly would not agree with the contention ... Read more
