This was our first Princess cruise and my 3 rd total. This will definitely not be our last Princess cruise as we were totally wow'd by the wonderful service, the great dining and the entertainment. Embarkation couldn't have been ... Read more

We thought we done a lot of research before choosing our cruise and travelling from Sydney Australia with my Adult sons and their partners to Houston Texas. Well were we wrong!!!! Before I criticise this ship I would like to point out ... Read more

We chose this cruise for two reasons: the port of Houston was drive able for us and we wanted to visit Cartagena, Columbia. We were familiar with the other ports, but enjoyed some anyway. Embarkation and debarkation were relatively easy ... Read more

Our daughter in law drove us to the terminal and there was a short wait for someone to assist my husband in a wheelchair. Our room was ready when we got onboard so we dropped off our 'stuff' and headed to the dining room for a very nice ... Read more

Having read a couple of negative reviews I feel compelled to balance it, in favour or Princess who, in our opinion were impeccable. There is one recent review that frankly after reading the 6th sub heading I stopped, and it says to me ... Read more

Compared to our first sailing with Princess, this ship did a fine job with service. The Caribbean Princess was also in better condition. On the Grand Princess (sailed 2011), the stewards and dining room staff were so overworked they ... Read more

This was my first Princess cruise. Compared to my other cruises all on Carnival I rated this one average. I was surprised at how much ship movement I could feel, bouncing from wall to wall on occasion. The staff was overall very helpful ... Read more

We are experienced cruisers, but this is the first time we have ever cruised with Princess. 29 members of our extended family joined us over Spring Break to help celebrate our parents' 60th wedding anniversary. The staff was very helpful ... Read more

This was my 5th cruise, but my first cruise with Princess. I have sailed with Disney and with Carnival for my other cruises. I absolutely love cruising and being out on the ocean, and try to look at the brighter side of things when things ... Read more

First of all we have 9 cruises with Carnival and was very excited about going on a b2b on Princess. So, many of our comparisons were based on our experiences with Carnival. We have always gotten a balcony cabin so booked sidexside with our ... Read more

First, a caveat. I assume a lot of people like Princess. After two cruises, we do not. We are Celebrity Elite status cruisers and find Princess no match for Celebrity. So, maybe my comments will help others who are not sure what line to go ... Read more

Our embarkation port was Houston (Bayport). It's about 60 to 90 minutes depending on traffic, from the airport to cruise terminal. We drive our car car and park on site for about $100/wk. safe gated area. Embarkation is very efficient. ... Read more

I'll start with the bad to get it out of the way. There were only 2 things that I felt were bad on this cruise. The first and foremost being the smell of sewage on some areas of the deck. I am assuming they had some kind of ventilation ... Read more

Travel from Hobby airport to Kemah a day early, close to terminal took over 2 hours and $80+ on I45. This was twice what we expected at 3pm on a Saturday. Traffic was bumper to bumper the whole way. Perhaps the cab driver took advantage ... Read more

We can't say enough good things about this cruise on the Caribbean Princess! All of the crew were genuinely happy to help if we had questions (where to find Coral Dining Room, for example). Embarkation was a breeze, compared to other ... Read more
