Sailed July 2013
We started our vacation in Dover at the Wallett hotel. The next morning we took a taxi to the castle and then on to the Ocean princess ship. This is a small ship with about 600+ passengers. I have sailed many times before and getting on ... Read more

This was our second cruise on the Ocean Princess, this time a short cruise around Britain. The ship is well maintained and very clean - almost all the staff are incredibly helpful and always have smiles on their faces. We like the small ... Read more

Our family sailed the Star Princess in January 2013 through Cape Horn and it was a huge ship. We noticed the quality of food had improved and even the fellow passengers were fascinating, mostly from South America so I was willing to give ... Read more

We wanted to find a cruise that either began or ended in Hawaii so we could spend some extra time there. Easier said than done. Most French Polynesia cruises begin and end in Australia or New Zealand and none that I could find included ... Read more

The Ocean Princess is a refreshing alternative to the mega ships that abound. It's nice to walk around the ship and see familiar faces (people we have met) instead of being squashed by throngs of strangers. The cabin stewards, internet ... Read more

This was a 10 day cruise from Tahiti visiting 5 other nearby islands. We booked our flights through Princess and they put us on Air Tahiti Nui. The flight to Tahiti left LAX about noon and arrived about 8:00 PM. Our return flight was at ... Read more

This was our 4th cruise having previously been on Holland, Carnival and Celebrity. First off, the ship is really small compared to any of the previous ones. But knowing that ahead of time, we didn't have a problem with it at all. But we ... Read more

We flew in to Honolulu the night before the cruise departed and used the next morning to tour the Pearl Harbor Memorial, which I would highly recommend. The ship was docked at Diamond Head Terminal, a short walk up Punchbowl Street to the ... Read more

We stayed at Hotel Tahiti Nui, in downtown Papeete. Taxi from airport to hotel was $40. Lots of taxis available, and there were enough people who spoke English at airport and hotel. Hotel was nice, modern, but dark corridors at night, ... Read more

Having spent many years wanting to visit the Greek Islands, we took the opportunity to book this cruise on a "small ship" rather than one of the bigger Princess ships. The atmosphere was fabulous, with a much more intimate feel about ... Read more

What a great experience to sail on this beauty. Small on size but not on service, comfort and friendship. The ship is beautifully clean, cabins more than adequate, and food great all round. Very easy to negotiate every level with 4 lifts ... Read more

This was a spectacular cruise in nearly all respects. Service, food, entertainment, itinerary, ambiance, and fellow passengers altogether resulted in this cruise leap-frogging ahead of some of our other Princess sailings we heretofore ... Read more

We loved sailing a small and intimate ship. No lines and very little hassle all around. The ship itself at first appeared old, but in an elegant and not a tired way. The dark woods and brass rail stairways are elegant and welcoming. ... Read more

I've been on about 15 cruises since 1989, on many different lines, so I guess you could say I am an experienced cruiser. I have cruised Tahiti twice. The previous one, on Renaissance (now defunct) was my favorite cruise ever. Here is a ... Read more

We picked this ship because it had the ports of call that we were looking for -- we wanted to either start or end in Greece and Princess was one of the few that did this. We had never sailed with Princess before and had heard some good ... Read more
