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

Cabin A722 Deck 12 balcony, Aft. We loved the new mattresses and bedding. No issues with the cabin or staff. We like the aft section as we hang out by the rear pool and hot tubs. We find it less crowded. We flew to LA 2 days ... Read more

Ruby Princess was nice. All but one staff was friendly and helpful. Food was good for the most part. Wish they (and all cruise ships) made "American taste" pastries. Most are more "European" and not sweet enough or ... Read more

Another great Princess cruise! Top marks as always on Princess food, service, decor, ship amenaties, and cleanliness. Best things: This 10-day itinerary was appealing because of the stops in less frequented ports of La Paz and Loreto. ... Read more

We went on the 10 day cruise and this was our 1st experience with Princess and this ship. We have cruised over 10 times on 4 different lines so far. The ship loading was normal for all cruise lines with no surprises. The room ... Read more

Princess is my favorite cruise lines. Crown Princess is NOT up to the high standards set by Princess. Nowhere is this more evident than in their 7 night cruise to the Mexican Riveria. Pay special attention to the actual time this ... Read more

We sailed the Crown last year before it went to dry dock. Many things changed, but some were NOT for the better. First, yes, the carpet and soft goods were renewed. But many things were NOT. Some of the upper decks were neglected, ... Read more

We enjoyed this cruise. However, we cannot say that it was great. Stateroom: We had a balcony cabin on the Caribe deck, which meant that the balcony was comparatively big (maybe 70 sq. foot) but the stateroom felt cramped (about 160 ... Read more

This was my fifth cruise and my first as a solo traveler. First, I'll say that it was the quickest, smoothest embarkation I have ever experienced. The port in Los Angeles had plenty of parking and the check-in process once inside the ... Read more

This was our third cruise on the Crown Princess and our ninth cruise on Princess. We booked our air and transfer through Princess and embarkation was flawless. The ship is getting older, but she is still as beautiful as ever. Although we ... Read more

Caribe Level 10, cabin C404. This is an inside cabin which only has an adjoining room on one side. It is close to the laundry and elevators yet a quiet location. The room was very clean but as expected not very big. Your only place to ... Read more

Arrived in LA and arrived at the terminal around 1:00 smooth embarkation and was in our room by 1:30. We were bumped up to a cabin at the back of the ship to a Suite. C748. Did not feel any turbulence or noise at all. Beautiful, great ... Read more

The ship and itinerary are very nice, but the overall on board experience and crew disappointed. I know the prices are very reasonable, but it seemed that Princess had cut back on quality since a similar trip 2 years ago. Our mid ship ... Read more

We have taken this itinerary several times with Princess, but this was the first time on the Grand Princess. We live right across the Bay from the cruise terminal and took BART and the F-line to the ship. The new cruise terminal was very ... Read more

Sailed out of SF which was so nice: easy embarkation, close parking ($18/day), beautiful weather! Princess has done a great job with their embarkation & disembarkation process- both so very smooth. They have 'progressive' check-in and ... Read more

First of all, we stayed at the Best Western Plus San Pedro on the Friday night before our cruise, and it was an excellent choice for comfort and convenience. I have reviewed the hotel over at tripadvisor.com if you are interested in more. ... Read more

We consider ourselves fairly experienced cruisers with sophisticated palates and appreciation for good music. Our experiences with Princess have always been good although an 11-day Panama Canal Crossing on the Coral Princess was amazing. ... Read more

The Crown Princess is the largest ship we'd sailed on, and this was apparent from the get-go, as embarkation was a well-organized but lengthy process: 90 minutes from terminal to boat. In the past, we've sailed onto cruise ships. Not so ... Read more

We had always wanted to go along the Mexican Coast, so took this cruise when Princess returned to the area. Embarkation was smooth and easy, efficient and seamless; as was disembarking. We choose to walk off with our bags. Food was ... Read more

This was our 12th cruise (all prior with Royal and Norwegian) and first with Princess. We won’t be booking Princess again. First, the good. The interior stateroom was well laid out with plenty of space for storage and moving ... Read more

My wife and I are a bit younger than the usual crowd on Princess, in our early 40's, with a couple of young children who spend most of their time in the kid's club or in our cabin with us playing games and reading. We like cruising ... Read more

As we have done this cruise many times before, we were mainly looking forward to relaxing on the sea days. And we did relax but we also had a great time with our Cruise Critic group and the special activities planned by our travel agent. ... Read more

Mexican Riviera cruise on the Grand was grand! We had a good time, part of which was largely due to the Cruise Critic Roll Call group we cruised with who not only set up a very well run Meet & Greet the first sea day (with small gift ... Read more

My parents treated me to my 1st ever cruise...a 7 day Mexican Riveria cruise from L.A. We had a mini-suite (Dolphin Deck - deck 9, and mid-ship) so it was a great location for a cabin. I was so not sure of what to expect, I expected to ... Read more
