We didn't pick this cruise for our first cruise. My family picked it and we decided to tag along. It was a nice ship, the staff were super, and I did enjoy it. But 5 days at sea were a little long for me. My sister thought it wasn't long ... Read more

The Hawaii Cruise is always enjoyable (our third). Weather could have been better on this trip (overcast days seemed the outnumbered the clear days and some rough sea conditions). Kauai, in my estimation, was the best part of the cruise ... Read more

My wife and I have been on a dozen cruises on several of the standard cruise lines. This was our fourth time in Princess. We found that over all service is diminishing. The food in the dining room was adequate but the service was not up ... Read more

Just came back from the 7 night cruise to Mexican Reviera (Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo) and my first Princess experience in 9 cruises overall. I have to say Princess is a notch above in several respects. They seem to be better ... Read more

Embarkation went very smoothly. We thought it weird that you have to bring life jackets to muster drill. The buffet was one of the best we've experienced (we are huge royal Caribbean fans). The pizza everyone seems to love really isn't ... Read more
