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

I chose this cruise for several reasons. One reason is I think the Christmas and New Year cruises are the best time for me to cruise with everyone in such a festive mood. I also love the holiday decorations throughout the ship. Another ... 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

More sea than Hawaii on this cruise but we were aware of that. We were looking for a cruise where we could leave from a car approachable pier and arrive back to that same pier. Also looked for a cruise where we could come and go on sea ... 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
