Our experience with Princess was a mixed bag of goods! We took an 8 day cruise from Los Angeles to Mexico. The ship itself was nice. We had a balcony room on the top floor in the back. It was a bit rockier than the front as well as ... Read more

This was the only cruise out of LA going to Mexico. We have traveled with Princess before and always been very happy. This ship is beautiful and our mini suite was lovely. The food was delicious and our waiter, Michael, in the ... Read more

My husband and I went on this cruise with our two friends and their 15 month old daughter. We had an obstructed ocean view cabin on the Emerald deck, E224. The cabin was small. We had a lifeboat partially obstructing the window, but it was ... Read more

Most comfortable bed I ever had on a cruise. New mattresses were installed a month before we sailed. Staff was friendly but there wasn't a good bartender on the boat. All the drinks tasted watered down. We bought a soft drink card and ... Read more

We selected this cruise because our travel agent had a great deal on a balcony cabin with grats and beverages included, and it was the chance to see some different ports of call. A few months later I found another good deal on the same ... Read more

We selected this cruise due to living near the port and the affordability. The ship was well maintained, crew was friendly and helpful, food was better than average, and the stateroom was comfortable. We obviously were happy enough, ... Read more

The cruise was very nice and the weather was great. You are within sight of land most of the time so the ocean does not get very rough, however on our first day and last day it was fairly rough for a few hours as a cold front passed and ... Read more

After returning from our cruise last year we decided to look and book our second cruise from Princess, we really enjoy to cruise on Princess for the atmosphere and the fact that they still sail out of Los Angeles. We so far have booked ... Read more

I choose Princess this time as the itinerary was what I needed. I think it is important to note that I am a solo traveler. I normally sail on Holland America and friends have raved about princess and I thought I would give them a try. ... Read more

new beds were great. We cruise Princess a lot. Nothing new stood out. A couple of things we did not like. Portions and choice on menu down. TV has movies but no in room guide. You have to go to the menu on the TV and that is an adventure. ... Read more

For the most part it was a good cruise. Entertainment was first rate. However, smaller entertainment venues never had enough room to sit. Room attendant (Andrei) was excellent. Cabin and ship was in good condition. Cabin layout is the ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise. We had previously cruised on the Disney Fantasy and Dream (in the past five years) and the Grand Princess during her first year, 1999. I was a little nervous after reading some of the reviews, but I want to ... Read more

This was our 13th cruise with Princess and we found this trip to be the most unsatisfying ! It mostly revolved around the food! The food on the other ships has been good and much improved over what we have had the last few years. The ... Read more

After two wonderful trips to Alaska on Princess Cruises, at the suggestion of our travel agent, we opted for a California Coastal experience. Needless to say, we were NOT disappointed. After leaving Los Angeles, we were at sea for a ... Read more

Close to home,, no flying, easy ports. We wanted just a quick getaway and Princess offered us a great deal. We like to listen to the daily lectures, on this voyage there weren't any of relevance. We celebrated a birthday on board, went to ... Read more
