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

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

First off, I'll start by saying a cruise is what you make of it. Embarkation was fast and easy. We drove to the port and once in the building we were on the ship in 20 minutes. If you follow the guide Princess sends, everything goes ... Read more

Awesome pizza!! Great pools! The two main pools are deep with absolutely no shallow end, so bring a puddle jumper for your toddler or she will be stuck using hot tubs when you want to hang out together in the main pool area. Must ... Read more

We are elite with Princess but before we had a chance to say this, we were whisked into the long line to check in. It did not take too long, but we could have avoided the wait. We booked an inside cabin this time and found that we had ... Read more

This was our first time sailing on Princess. The staff was very good, but not the best we have ever. The ship is starting to show some wear and tear. The carpet was worn and frayed in many areas. The couch in our room was stained and ... Read more

Like Jay Leno once famously said: "even a bad pizza is still a pizza" reminded me this cruise. Grand Princess is a nice but aging ship and it shows. Our mini suite cabin couch was in a shape that I didn't even come across at a ... Read more
