I chose Princess Cruise Lines because we have a history with this line and actually have never sailed with any other Cruise Line. This is my 9th cruise with Princess and have attained Platinum status which comes with a few perks. Usually ... Read more

I had work on this cruise, which is how my family ended up on this particular one. But we are now hooked on Princess, and we would recommend this cruise to others. The islands we visited were incredible, the cruise ship was fun with an ... 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

Overall, the ship was amazing. The dining was a WOW!! Although the entertainment was average, with only 4 or 5 musicals, the ship still kept our family of 4 busy throughout the whole day. The sporting and fitness facilities on the ship ... Read more

This was our 23rd cruise (mostly on RCI) that includes 1 cruise on the Crown Princess about 10 years ago so we're Princess newbies really. I have to say that this cruise easily ranks as one of the best cruises we've ever been on. ... 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

We flew to San Francisco 2 days early to explore the city. We enjoyed riding on the hop on, hop off bus. We went around the city. The weather was a little bit cold but manageable. I chose this cruise because I would like to experience all ... Read more

We chose this cruise mostly because San Francisco is so close to home. No flying! Embarkation was a breeze, and we were able to get into our stateroom right away. Our room was on deck 14, which we loved. Sail away was delayed a bit due ... Read more

After many years of hosting Thanksgiving dinners at our home, we decided it was our year for a break. The 5 day cruise to Cabo San Lucas was the perfect option for us given that we live less than a half hour from the LA port where this ... Read more

Princess is our favorite cruise line because of the best organized activities onboard, but we've only been on Holland, P&O, Carnival, and Royal Caribbean. On this trip, we had Theo from Brazil as our Zumba instructor, he is the ... Read more

The cabin was totally outdated. There needs to be better accommodations when you have a third person in the room. Paying $2900. and sleeping on a generic pullout is unacceptable. There was not enough onboard activities. Two ports were ... Read more

Our last 2 cruises have been with RCL and wanted to try something different. Embarkation and disembarkation went very well on Princess. No long lines. Our cabins were very small and balconies were so small you could barely walk on ... Read more

My son and I went with my mom and one of my sisters. Embarkation went well; we explored the ship and it looked very nice, though there were about 5 elevators out of order when we left port and at least a couple still out or that went out ... Read more

Let me first say that Princess is normally a great line to cruise on. This was my eighth cruise on Princess and the first time I have really been disappointed with the cruise. We had a mid-ship balcony room and the balcony appeared to ... Read more

We were pleasantly pleased by this cruise and the Star Princess. My wife and I traveled with two children aged 6 and 8. One with a casted up broken arm. The kids had a blast, wanting to stay on board during the port days to be part of the ... Read more

I wrote an earlier review of a cruise on the Star one month previous to this one. I had mixed feelings on that first coastal cruise, but this Mexico cruise was much better. There were still some concerns I suppose it could have been a ... Read more

We just sailed on the Regal Princess to the Western Caribbean. We had never sailed the Princess line before and so only have Celebrity, Disney and Carnival to compare this particular cruise. To say we were underwhelmed would be an ... Read more
