This was only our second cruise on Princess, an October 2016 28-day round trip run from LA to Hawaii & the South Pacific. We have always concentrated on Royal Caribbean because of their excellent affinity program so they are our ... Read more

Good itinerary included 4 Hawaiin islands plus Ensenada in Mexico. Embarkation in LA very efficient - as was disembarkation at the end of the cruise. Highlights were the excursions we booked in the 4 Hawaiin islands - superb trips, well ... Read more

This was our first cruise to Hawaii, and I hope it will not be our last!. We arrived at port early (before noon) but were able to board right away. Our cabin was very comfortable and spacious..we had upgraded to a mini-suite. The cabin ... Read more

We wanted to cruise to and around Hawaii, but we didn't want to spend extra time in the air getting there. The embarkation was good, the disembarkation was a nightmare, so I averaged them and still came up with a "terrible" ... Read more

Was not happy with the service, charged for coffee and tea in one area of the ship and it was free in other areas. Shows were being shown at the same time. Didn't have much to do on sea days. Cruise Director was not engaging. ... Read more

My husband and I went to Hawaii on our honeymoon 49 years ago, and we thought it was time we went again. This cruise on the Crown Princess seemed appealing, as we enjoy sea days and it was convenient for us and my husband's brother and his ... Read more

Just returned from Crown Princess 15 day cruise to Hawaii. Having been on the ship during its first Inaugural cruise in June, 2006, we were eager to see what shape she was in. While we did notice some normal wear, and some rusting in ... Read more

We took this cruise to Hawaii to have a vacation. I booked it over a year ago. We live in So Ca so it is close to the port. Embarkation was extremely easy. We are Platinum Members so we don't really have to stand in line. The ship is ... Read more

1st cruise with Princess - not impressed. Food was average. Service in dining room was good and bad - one day coffee for breakfast was served promptly, another day, waited over 10 minutes. Regular dinner menu had hamberger on it, other ... Read more

This was our first cruise, selected because we wanted to see Hawaii and Pearl Harbour. We had already been to LA and seen a bit but thought we could go to the Iowa and Queen Mary, which we did... Boarding was quite laborious and ... Read more

We are particularly critical with two things in this cruise. Food and food service. Food on this ship was generally bland, from main dining room to buffet. I understand salt and spice diet may be needed for some cruisers but I don't think ... Read more

Stayed in cabin C-102 which is on deck 10. Room was fine, except for: 1. Bed was too soft and sank significantly when I slept on it. 2. Cigarette smoke was smelt in our room during the morning hours. Appears to come from air ... Read more

I would love to give this review 5 stars, however, I cannot. I realize the cruise industry is very competitive, and cutting costs to keeps fares lower is necessary, but when it affects service, it might drive people to try other lines. ... Read more

After an impressive cruise with Royal Princess earlier this year, we were very disappointed with this Ship particularly the Horizon Court buffet layout, quality, choices, and service. It seems you feel like a bunch of chicken running ... Read more

Chose this cruise because it was different than what we have done before. It started in Vancouver and then went down the Pacific coast: Seattle WA, Astoria OR, SanFrancisco CA, Santa Barbara CA and finished in Los Angeles. Seemed like ... Read more

Great (different itinerary) with a few extra days in Vancouver BC. Embarkation was crowed because 3 ships were in Vancouver the day we left. The ports were beautiful and there was plenty to do in each port exploring on your own. Vancouver, ... Read more
