Third time on Princess - each time getting worse! No one to meet us at airport after 13 hour flight. They turned up late and told us we had to wait 2.5 hours for bus. Cabin OK although shower curtain did not meet base of shower. Cabin ... Read more

We choose this cruise as the destinations looked perfect as a introduction to the Far East, however sadly this was not to be. We had upgraded our cabin to a mini-suite with balcony, as we were aboard for 13 nights and decided the extra ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the SE Asia destinations which sounded interesting. Embarkation was handled reasonably well, considering the number of people they have to handle. We've only done one cruise before on Dawn Princess, so only ... Read more

Fantastic cruise. Meet some lovely people of all ages (no raging teenagers luckily). Princess had a huge range of activities to do each day which we found fabulous. Their organisation of tenders, getting on and off the boat and the ... Read more

I researched Singapore online before leaving + decided to stay an extra 3 days after the cruise to see the Christmas lights on Orchard Road. I was glad I did. Singapore is spectacular, modern and full of fabulous architecture. As for the ... Read more

We chose this cruise for my 60th birthday celebration, big mistake! The check in involved long waits which we have never previously experienced with any other cruise line but that was just the precursor to disaster. The room was ... Read more

We have sailed with Princess before with our last cruise on the Regal for her inaugural repositioning cruise from Venice to Fort Lauderdale in 2014. We had a brilliant time on that cruise with all the staff being friendly and helpful. We ... Read more

I have looked over other reviews some are squeaky clean others harsh. All cruises are governed by weather and that will not be a factor here.So! Cabin: not bad at all but without a balcony it would have been claustrophobic. T.V. News ... Read more

Embarkation went smoothly in Singapore and was unremarkable. I was just surprised that we were required to surrender our passports. The accommodations on the ship were fine, and I believe we were fortunate to have selected a cabin that ... Read more

Embarkation: Was very smooth and organised. We arrived at 10:45 and were in the Horizon Buffet at 12:30. Check-in staff was very polite and inviting. Our rooms were ready soon after. Stateroom: Was on the Emerald deck aft, with a large ... Read more

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

My wife and I chose this cruise mainly because of the Asian itinerary as we haven't travelled to those ports before. We also wanted to experience princess. Embarkation went fairly smoothly in Tianjin and soon we were on board and to our ... 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

I totally agree with all reviews that have been left so far. We had high expectations of Princess lines...but unfortunately this cruise did not live up to these expectations. The ship itself was fine (except for the area near the Vista ... 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 chose this cruise as it was a one way trip from Beijing to Australia and it worked well with a land tour of China we had booked. The service was good and overall the meals were great. The ports of call were interesting with stops in ... Read more
