My first cruise and I thought it was great. The main reason we choose this cruise was it departed from San Francisco. Since I live in the Bay Area it was so easy to get to the ship. The embarkation and disembarkation was very easy. I ... Read more

My husband and I have sailed three times previously, all with other cruise lines, and we wanted to give Princess a try. We chose the 10 day Mexican itinerary so that we could have a few extra relaxing sea days. The embarkation process ... Read more

We chose the Grand Princess cruise, leaving San Francisco to Mexico, as we have always been extremely satisfied with the Princess ships and as we live close to San Francisco, this cruise made sense, in that we would not have to deal with ... Read more

My husband and I have sailed with Princess several times and we selected this cruise to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. As cruises go, this was average +. The ship could use a few upgrades and perhaps a few more shows other ... Read more

We had never cruised this itinerary before and we had some time in April to cruise, so I as a Princess Platinum cruiser I jumped on it. We flew into LAX the day before and stayed on a Princess pre-cruise package. They put us up at the ... Read more

Tired of cruising the Caribbean and skittish about Europe we decided to fly (not a favorite thing of ours to do) to LA and take a 15 day cruise round trip LA - Hawaii. We have never been to Hawaii so this was a great choice. We chose ... Read more

Embarkation was slower than usual. At the airport, we learned that there were two Princess ships in port and leaving at the same, so the shuttles were performing double duty from the airport to both ships. Once at the ship, 1/2 the ... Read more

I will stick to items that might help someone along the way. Lots of hangers and hanger space. We like the clothes storage capabilities better than Celebrity, although the cabin seemed smaller than Celebrity. Caribe deck for us since you ... Read more

A fortuitous break in schedules allowed us to jump aboard within 2 weeks of sailing. We haven't cruised on Princess in quite some time (not due to any reason other than we cruised on other lines) and this 10 day itinerary included the ... Read more

Third time on Princess-many other cruises for us on Royal Carribean, Norwegian and Crystal. Pretty good food overall-afternoon tea definitely worth it though service could be improved-not attentive at beginning then rushing diners at end. ... Read more

This is my first review ever, after sailing many other lines and being an Emerald Crown & Anchor (RCCL) cruiser for over a decade. We arrived at LAX and were greeted by staff who knew exactly who we were. After a wait for the bus, we ... Read more

We were on the Crown Princess and booked a mini-suite with a veranda on the port side. As such we had an excellent view of our docking and offloading and of any scenery going down to Mexico. Our dining was an early schedule at 5:15pm in ... Read more

This was our 18th cruise on Princess. This is the only time I have wrote a negative report. This ship needs some major help. They have three dining rooms and only one for anytime dining. Lines were bad. The staff seem to have no moral ... Read more
