We chose this cruise for price and supposed value. This was my fifth cruise so I have something to compare it to. The ship itself was ok, and the balcony view was worth it. The crew was mostly curt. The Drink deal they try to sell you for ... Read more

We had made flight arrangements through Princess with their EZ flight program, out of Denver. This was the first concern. We tried to ascertain our seats but couldn't because this was not the policy. We had to check in with Delta 24 hours ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it suited us for the dates available and for the destinations in ports of call. Quite honestly felt that the standards had slipped considerably in the sanitising department. We had just come off another cruise ... 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
