We were in Los Angeles already and wanted to remain out west for Thanksgiving holidays. Having been on 37 cruises, though never Princess, we decided to try this short trip to Cabo. We knew it would have many children and families, and ... Read more

After returning from our cruise last year we decided to look and book our second cruise from Princess, we really enjoy to cruise on Princess for the atmosphere and the fact that they still sail out of Los Angeles. We so far have booked ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to go snorkeling in the Sea of Cortez. We found a wonderful price deal and stayed with the lowest prince - an interior cabin on an upper deck. Both embarkation and disembarkation were fast and ... 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

For the most part it was a good cruise. Entertainment was first rate. However, smaller entertainment venues never had enough room to sit. Room attendant (Andrei) was excellent. Cabin and ship was in good condition. Cabin layout is the ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise. We had previously cruised on the Disney Fantasy and Dream (in the past five years) and the Grand Princess during her first year, 1999. I was a little nervous after reading some of the reviews, but I want to ... Read more

This was our 13th cruise with Princess and we found this trip to be the most unsatisfying ! It mostly revolved around the food! The food on the other ships has been good and much improved over what we have had the last few years. The ... Read more

This was a cruise round trip from San Pedro to the Hawaiian Islands. I suggest you use John Wayne airport and avoid LAX. We arrived the day before and spent the afternoon and evening at the Double Tree. They have a free shuttle to ... Read more

I have to admit this was not my choice to cruise the Panama Canal, it was my husband's, but I'm so happy we went. The Island Princess is a smaller ship & the previous dry-dock made it even smaller with the removal of one of the lounges ... Read more
