We are experienced cruisers and we have found that some cruise ships are better that others , some are good in certain areas and poor in others . This one was by far the worst cruise we have ever been on . The one saving grace was the ... Read more

This was a special cruise as I'm a travel agent and completed Princess' Education Program. For me, it was particularly special as it was my first time back to Vietnam since 1971 when I was there for non-tourist reasons as a young Navy ... Read more

The Captain always concluded his PAs with, “Please enjoy the magnificent Golden Princess.” Sadly we didn’t find the Golden Princess to be magnificent at all but very tired and with problems. For us, this had to be our ... Read more

This was my 8th Princess cruise and probably my worst one. Embarkation was a bit hopeless but that was nothing unusual, Princess contractors and Chinese officialdom are not a good combination. My cabin was clean and the cabin steward, ... Read more

The 5 major areas Princess failed miserably are as follows: 1. EMBARKATION IN TIANJIN: Upon arriving at the Tianjin Pier after the long 4 hour drive from Beijing was total chaos. There was no system for queuing or where we should go ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Princess Cruises and we were very disappointed with the ship. It lacked any wow factor, the entertainment was poor and very repetitive, the food choices weren't great but the quality was fine. There were ... Read more

Reading other reviews I'm beginning to think I was on a different ship. Maybe we were just lucky but our cabin was beautiful, comfortable and clean. You could get food 24 hours a day and was delicious. Some cruise lines (P and O take ... Read more

We've become quite addicted to cruising, but this cruise really burst our bubble. Embarkation in Tianjin Port was chaotic at the time we arrived, due to long holdups on the highway from Beijing and buses arriving at the same time - the ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise aboard sea princess. She is an older ship but well maintained and very comfortable and not as glitzy as the American ships so pleasant to the eye. The staff onboard were pleasant, fun and courteous. The ... Read more
