Our relatives chose this cruise and we tagged along. However, it was very convenient for us, living in the LA area, that it was a round trip to and from LA. Captain Michele Tuvo was an exceptional captain - he was friendly, funny, fun ... Read more

Love Princess! Rarely disappointed! Our room was terrific and ditto for Eddie our cabin steward. Loved the room location at mid-ship. Our wedding coordinator, Alex, from customer service was outstanding! Loved breakfast at Sabatini's. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it began and ended in San Francisco, which is only about an hours drive from our home. It was our first long cruise, and Princess Cruises kept us informed on line through their website of all that we needed. ... Read more

It was a fantastic cruise to Hawaii. Had great weather and calm seas. Grand Princess had been in dry dock before our cruise. We had the new bedding and the ship looked like new. Enjoyed all the shows in the Princess Theater. Best ... Read more

First time Princess was a disappointment. We chose this cruise because we wanted to cruise to Hawaii. We knew the ship was older, however, we thought with the renovations it would have been much better. The rooms are very small, carpets ... Read more

We love cruise days but unfortunately the weather did not cooperate. It was cool and some days had very rough seas. We didn't find too much to keep us busy that we were interested in. The shops were few and very small. The sun came out ... Read more

We picked a cruise to Hawaii and it was the most disappointing cruise we have ever taken. Our cabin had a very loud banging noise under the floor of the cabin. It took 9 days to get moved to another cabin. We didn't get any sleep for 2 ... Read more

This was a bit bigger than we like but it never seemed crowded. Weather didn't cooperate on our many sea days, we were able to entertain ourselves up until the last few rainy days. The ship is older, still has wooden lockers on the ... Read more

We have done the Hawaii round trip cruise numerous times now....each time it seems more and more things have been removed from the experience. Singers and dancers only perform 3 times during the cruise and the rest of the nights are some ... Read more

The Grand Princess is grand no more. The dry dock in December 2016 brought new carpet in some public areas, amd new mattresses. The state room carpets are still in need of replacement, and the old girl is showing her age in many other ... Read more

This is one of my favorite itineraries. I love the sea days and really appreciate Princess providing 3 varied lecturers over very different topics to help occupy the sea days. I like the fact that the desserts are NOT in the main buffet ... Read more

We went on the Grand soon after her last dry dock and our impression is very favorable. She still shows her age in some insignificant areas but most of the improvements are welcomed. First and foremost if you have ever complained about ... Read more

We chose this cruise in order to visit Hawaii, which we enjoyed. The ship may be a "grand old lady" but the emphasis is on"old" and her wrinkles were showing. For example, the air con. varied greatly from one venue ... Read more

It has been six years since my last Princess Cruise but I have been on six prior to this LA-Hawaii round trip (1/09/17). I was disappointed with some aspects, pleased with others. Bad news first: 1) An unconscionable wait for ... Read more

This was our first time on Princess after six cruises on Celebrity. If the 'Star' is representative of the Princess product it will probably be our last. First I'd like to say the staff was great. Everyone went out of their way to make ... Read more

We had not been on a Princess cruise in three years due to work demands. We planned this cruise far in advance in honor of our 40th anniversary. The improvements were evident in every aspect of the cruise. Food: (We are vegetarians who ... Read more

Main reason, PRICE. Age range of passengers, 75 to 90. Food, going down hill from past Princess cruises. Menus repeated every 4 days and very boring. Lots of sick passengers spreading disease to others. Rough seas every day. Many ... Read more

We were in cabin A701, and it was a great location. Attila, from Hungary, was probably our best room steward, ever! Our cabin was close to the aft elevator; walk directly aft on 12-Aloha deck, go thru a door, and you're at an outdoor ... Read more

This was my 14th cruise with Princess. The last one was on the Royal, which is one of the newer ships. In contrast, the Star Princess is really beginning to show its age although the service was consistently outstanding. It is a disservice ... Read more

I found everything to be really excellent. The food was always great and the shows and other activities were a real pleasure to watch. I thought that dollar for dollar value was really there and think that you get a lot for the money. ... Read more

We love this cruise being from Los Angeles No Flights are needed to get to and from the ship. My wife needed a wheel chair to get from the car to our cabin. Wheel chair service for embarkation was very POOR. However, it should be noted ... Read more
