Have used princess on several occasions on repositionings instead of flying. Fact that I live in Houston made it very convenient eliminating flying. Room was as expected and itenerary was interesting including stops in Liverpool, Holyhead ... Read more

We took this cruise because it left from Houston (we live in Texas), it was a transatlantic, and it went to ports that are not on the usual transatlantic crossings. Everything was pretty much what one can expect on a 3,000 passenger ship ... Read more

The ship was beautiful, the staff very accommodating. The dining room meals were very good but the choices not as many as we have experienced in the past. The waitstaff both in the dining rooms and buffets were very good. Embarkation ... Read more

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 took this cruise with the expectation of going thru the Panama canal locks. Found out that the ship was too long. Having cruised on NCL,RCCL and Celebrity, we were disappointed in the overall lower quality compared to competitors. ... 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

We have cruised with Princess many, many times and this was one of our only two so-so experiences. First, the positives. The waiters, stewards, and other workers were great...very accommodating and friendly, and the cruise staff was ... 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

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

We chose this cruise because we needed to get away . What we didn't realize was that Houston has expensive taxis the cruise port was 100 dollars by taxi from the airport. We figured it was just the cost of traveling. We had a good time ... 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
