We had been on several other vacations this year including Europe and Hawaii, but when this cruise came along at a good price, we decided to book. Princess is one of our favorite cruise lines so we were looking forward to a good ... Read more

Having only cruised on Carnival I wanted to try a more "upscale" cruise line. Based on their reputation I expected much more. All things being equal I'd go back to Carnival or try another line. I wont say that I'll never go ... Read more

Great balance of relaxation time, fun time and port time. Traveled with my brother and his wife and we were able to connect our balconies for afternoon happy hour meetups on our decks. The food was fantastic on this trip. And I've been ... Read more

We have always cruised on Princess Cruise Line. Embarkation was pretty painless. The ship is beautiful, we had a mini-suite and it was very comfortable. We did anytime dining which gave us flexibility and we shared table with other ... Read more

We chose this cruise to take our parents for their 60th wedding anniversary. It had always been their dream to do this cruise. They are in their mid 80's and it was a cruise with the days at sea that they love. Princess provided a lifetime ... Read more

Btw this was my 12th with princess, 23rd overall and 235 sea days under my belt. Our experience in the main dining room was such; that after two attempts we just quit going and relegated ourselves to the buffet and room service. The ... Read more

Day 1 - San Pedro / At Sea Arrived about 2 pm, check in and boarding were efficient and straight forward. We had easily found our cabin (with balcony) by 2:30 or so and dropped our hand luggage. Our steward stopped by and explained ... Read more

We have cruised multiple times on Princess, but this is the worst cruise experience we've ever had. We opted for Anytime Dining, since Princess instituted "Club Class" which takes over one of the anytime dining rooms from 5:30 - ... Read more

Easy access by plane. The Da Vinci dining room was like a Five Star restaurant. Our waiter was Benjamin--his attitude and extraordinary abilities made the evening meal so very pleasant. Even the buffet on the upper deck was wonderful. ... Read more

Every few years my DH's grandparent take the family on a cruise. We have sailed many cruise lines and we were excited to try Princess for the first time. The grandparents had sailed Princess previously and gave rave reviews. I myself ... Read more

I have sailed on this line several times before but it will be a long time before I sail with them again, if ever. I traveled with my two adult daughters and got a balcony room for three. I was not told that only two chairs would fit on ... Read more

Please turn off the flamethrowers. I am complaining about some things that may appear minor to others, but they did put a definite damper on our spirits during this cruise, okay? I am a TA member with the login of chatschats, and have ... Read more

Overall, the cruise was good. The crew was great...always pleasant and helpful. The ship was overall clean, but of course, not spotless. The food was better than when I was on the Ruby Princess when it was in the Caribbean. There were ... Read more

I live in the Midwest and most cruise experiences are departing from Florida. Since this was a girls trip for 50 yr old women, two of which reside in Los Angeles we decided to take something out of Los Angeles. Because I am fairly easy to ... Read more

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

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
