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

We had a great time, experience-wise on this cruise, despite the condition of the ship. Embarkation and disembarkation were smooth and timely. The shuttles, porters, and other shore-side staff were wonderfully helpful on both ends. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we'd cruised with Princess before and really enjoyed the relaxation and amazing food. This cruise was one for the books. The Embarkation process was absolutely hands-down the best of all cruises we've ... Read more

First of all to avoid Airlines and it was our 36th wedding anniversary. Possibly our last cruise and we wanted it to be a long one. However, we found a multitude of problems. Starting with the drink package we purchased did not ... Read more

1) Just a couple of days after leaving San Francisco we began to notice a foul smell. We found out later, from another passenger, that there was some sort of sewage problem on Deck 9. I was on Deck 8 Starboard and the passenger who ... Read more

Chose this cruise because it went to Hawaii and back without flying. The cruise ship left San Francisco late and we missed going under the Golden Gate Bridge in daylight. The ship needed major repairs and updates. The cabin did as well. We ... Read more

Our Princess cruise was the absolute best. It was the best because the entertainment and activities really got us engaged. I tried the Zumba on a recommendation from a lady who goes to my gym and has been on this cruise. It was fun to try ... Read more

With the exception of the Pacific Ocean being very rough we enjoyed our cruise immensely! There wasn't one crew member who was rude or nasty with us. We felt like royalty. The food was excellent and quite a large variety with the ... 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

This was the typical Hawaii and back cruise out of SF. About half of the guests were from the greater bay area and this is a favorite for regular cruisers. We had a large contingent from the UK, meeting them added to the fun. We were ... 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

This cruise started off bad and got worse. We booked this cruise and selected the room we wanted because of the large balcony. When we got on we were told they gave us an upgrade and moved us without telling us. We ended up a deck lower ... Read more

We had a great time on this cruise even with the unusual circumstances. We are a young married couple in our late 20's/early 30's and had never been to Hawaii. We chose this cruise because we wanted to see multiple islands on a budget. ... Read more

We have always thought the Grand Princess was a great ship. HOWEVER, on this cruise we had a huge issue with both the Grand and Princess. The ship was heading to dry dock in Oregon after this cruise.... However, they also wanted to ... Read more

Some people may think that we like to live dangerously, but we flew into Los Angeles on the same day that we set sail for Hawaii. Our flight arrived at 10:30am and with a pre-booked shuttle to San Pedro, we found ourselves able to embark ... Read more
