I have sailed on this line several times before but it will be a long time before I sail with them again, if ever. I traveled with my two adult daughters and got a balcony room for three. I was not told that only two chairs would fit on ... Read more

Please turn off the flamethrowers. I am complaining about some things that may appear minor to others, but they did put a definite damper on our spirits during this cruise, okay? I am a TA member with the login of chatschats, and have ... Read more

My wife and I went on our second Princess cruise,. The Crown is a little older ship but still pretty nice. I was surprised that the average age for this weekend cruise was much younger than the Caribbean cruise we were on before. ... Read more

Overall, the cruise was good. The crew was great...always pleasant and helpful. The ship was overall clean, but of course, not spotless. The food was better than when I was on the Ruby Princess when it was in the Caribbean. There were ... Read more

Our experience with Princess was a mixed bag of goods! We took an 8 day cruise from Los Angeles to Mexico. The ship itself was nice. We had a balcony room on the top floor in the back. It was a bit rockier than the front as well as ... Read more

This was the only cruise out of LA going to Mexico. We have traveled with Princess before and always been very happy. This ship is beautiful and our mini suite was lovely. The food was delicious and our waiter, Michael, in the ... Read more

My husband and I went on this cruise with our two friends and their 15 month old daughter. We had an obstructed ocean view cabin on the Emerald deck, E224. The cabin was small. We had a lifeboat partially obstructing the window, but it was ... Read more

Most comfortable bed I ever had on a cruise. New mattresses were installed a month before we sailed. Staff was friendly but there wasn't a good bartender on the boat. All the drinks tasted watered down. We bought a soft drink card and ... Read more

We selected this cruise because our travel agent had a great deal on a balcony cabin with grats and beverages included, and it was the chance to see some different ports of call. A few months later I found another good deal on the same ... Read more

We selected this cruise due to living near the port and the affordability. The ship was well maintained, crew was friendly and helpful, food was better than average, and the stateroom was comfortable. We obviously were happy enough, ... Read more

The cruise was very nice and the weather was great. You are within sight of land most of the time so the ocean does not get very rough, however on our first day and last day it was fairly rough for a few hours as a cold front passed and ... Read more

After many years of hosting Thanksgiving dinners at our home, we decided it was our year for a break. The 5 day cruise to Cabo San Lucas was the perfect option for us given that we live less than a half hour from the LA port where this ... Read more

Having flown in to LAX early in the morning, we were greeted by the Princess staff at the airport. We had about a 3 hour wait ahead of us so the staff suggested we go to the coffee shop in the iconic Theme building. It was nice to get a ... Read more

Princess is our favorite cruise line because of the best organized activities onboard, but we've only been on Holland, P&O, Carnival, and Royal Caribbean. On this trip, we had Theo from Brazil as our Zumba instructor, he is the ... Read more

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

A getaway for a California cousin's birthday over Thanksgiving was the impetus for selecting this five night getaway. The pluses: Easy, swift boarding as an Elite Member. Photography team: pleasant and not pushy. Outstanding ... Read more

My sister-in-law decided to celebrate her 60th birthday by organizing a family cruise to Mexico on the Ruby Princess. We sailed 11/19/2016 - 11/26/2016. Embarkation was remarkably easy and our luggage was quickly delivered to our ... 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

I chose this cruise because it was R/T San Fransisco at the time I needed. Everything was extremely smooth from the time I got to the pier through my return. Got all the spa appointments when I wanted them. The meusus' were wonderful ... Read more

We choose this cruise on The Grand Princess to the Mexican Riviera because of the Port ( San Francisco) which is close to our hometown First off, for those who choose a mini suite there is no overhang so if it rains you will be inside ... Read more

I choose Princess this time as the itinerary was what I needed. I think it is important to note that I am a solo traveler. I normally sail on Holland America and friends have raved about princess and I thought I would give them a try. ... Read more
