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

Choose Princess as embarking in Rio. Spent 4 great days there before cruise. Embarkation was the start of the nightmare. Arrived at our assigned time of 4 PM to find a huge room full of people who had been there all day. Did not appear ... 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

I have always sailed Princess, am elite status now after about 18 cruises. I do this for the same reason people stick to a particular airline. I have in the past been on Carnival, Holland America, and NCL. It was almost as if this ... Read more

We chose this cruise purely because of it's destinations and the fact that they had a kids club as we were travelling with our 12 year old son. Embarkation was a total nightmare - preference was given to those that are elite/gold status ... 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

We chose this particular cruise because my companion has wanted to take it since we met a couple several years ago who had done the sailing and raved about it and the adventure it was. They had gone on Holland America. This year we ... Read more

Embarked on MV Crown Princess on a 27-day cruise from Los Angeles to Montevideo, I had been driven away from poolside by the thumping music. So I found a deck chair in a quiet region, stretched out happily, and opened my book. Presently, ... Read more

We flew to LA and spent a few days touring before the cruise. When Sunday arrived we returned to LAX for our transfer to the Crown. Much to our surprise, instead of having to wait in long lines at the terminal we were taken to the Sheraton ... Read more

We looked forward to this cruise for over 2 years after having to cancel the same cruise in 2015 3 days before travel due to an unforseen hospital admittance. Our embarkation at LA and the first couple of days were good, but then it went ... Read more

Let me start by saying, my husband and I are not frequent ocean cruisers. We did a lot of ocean cruising when we were younger. In the last few years, we travelled with Norwegian and Celebrity and were very pleased with those voyages. We ... Read more

We have cruised with Princess enough times to get to Elite status which indicates we have been very pleased with the cruise line. This one gave us the opportunity to see several cities and country for the first time. We were blessed ... Read more

It started out all wrong with a 3 hour line for checkin. No water, seating or apologies. We were 1.5 hours late in sailing. I've never been on a cruise where the luggage arrived at your cabin before you did. The dining room menus were ... Read more
