Tired of cruising the Caribbean and skittish about Europe we decided to fly (not a favorite thing of ours to do) to LA and take a 15 day cruise round trip LA - Hawaii. We have never been to Hawaii so this was a great choice. We chose ... Read more

Embarkation was slower than usual. At the airport, we learned that there were two Princess ships in port and leaving at the same, so the shuttles were performing double duty from the airport to both ships. Once at the ship, 1/2 the ... Read more

Overall the ship was ok, a little tired in places but basically clean. The ship certainly catered for the older clientele because out of 3000 passengers there was only 500 under the age of 70 so entertainment included knitting and ... Read more

The ship is quite nice. Very similar to the other Princess ships with some changes, i.e., Crooners Bar is on the port side of the ship instead of the starboard as on most of their fleet. Also Sabatini's is no longer on this ship and now ... Read more

This was my 16th cruise on Princess. I enjoyed this trip very much but it is hard not to notice how much things continue to decline with quality and service. I realize competition is much greater and forcing these cost cutting measures. ... Read more
