2nd time on Star Princess and doubt we'll be back. We didn't choose the cruise, it was chosen for us by relatives. Embarkation was smooth up until actual boarding - Princess has a very slow system of taking your picture once you're ... Read more

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

I chose this cruise because Princess is meant to have a good reputation. This was advertised as a 5 star cruise and had been re-vamped prior to us boarding. This ship has been re-furbished in some areas but not all and our cabin was not ... Read more

Aside for combining the cruise with a visit with my son's family in San Fran, Hawaii, like most people was on our bucket list. As well, my wife was turning 65 the next month...... Sailing right by ALCATRAZ and under the GOLDEN GATE ... Read more

Chose this cruise by the itinerary. Wanted to sail under the Golden Gate Bridge, lots of sea days and visit 4 islands. Encinada was a waste of time, even the photographers didn't take photos of our arrival as they did on all the islands. ... 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

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

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
