Sailing around Cape Horn in South America in January sounded like fun: got a good rate for a balcony cabin, so off I went on CROWN PRINCESS. Medical emergency made us 1 day behind on the itinerary and weather was also an issue between ... Read more

There will be plenty of people who will post unhappy reviews about this January 4 - 18 Crown Princess cruise, but we will not be among them. Was this a wonderful cruise? No. Was this the “cruise from hell”? No. But ... Read more

An old saying says, "You only get one chance to make a first impression." Princess's first impression in Rio De Janeiro was a disaster. We flew into Rio on flights arranged by Princess. We purchased a transfer to the ship. ... Read more

One of the older Princess ships in need of a major refurb. The casino is still smoking! If you can believe that and you can smell the smoke outside the doors, very unpleasant. The theatre only holds 850 people and many shows there were ... Read more

We chose this cruise around South America because it visited a number of places on our bucket list and because our previous cruise through the Panama Canal on the Island Princess in 2014 was superb. However where as everything about our ... Read more

Don't ever ask for Any Time Dining on a Princess ship. They will only accept seating at 5:30 or 8:15. We asked for 6 PM and told they won't accept a reservation for that time. Told we could come down and stand in the wait line. Waited ... Read more
