We were in Los Angeles already and wanted to remain out west for Thanksgiving holidays. Having been on 37 cruises, though never Princess, we decided to try this short trip to Cabo. We knew it would have many children and families, and ... Read more

My wife and I chose the cruise because we had never been to the South Seas before, and didn't want long air flights. 18 days at sea left us a little bored, but there was no shortage of activities and excellent lectures on board. Also, we ... Read more

I have sailed at least six times over the past 20 years in the South Pacific and always found the conditions ideal for a relaxing 'disconnect' from all the distractions at home. I retired about 3 years ago so when I started shopping for ... Read more

Could not believe how bad this cruise was. First the positive: great enrichment speakers, cabin steward and waiters at 5:30 seating were very good. While the TV did not have as many stations or screen qualiy as the Royal Princess (3 ... 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

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

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
