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

This was my 50th cruise on Princess. My travel companion has over 70 with Princess. We had been on a few weeks earlier and my opinion is that there was good, there was bad, and fortunately no ugly. The good news is that we thoroughly ... Read more

We enjoyed our stay in Santa Monica for a few days before the cruise, and then boarded the Ruby Princess. Here's some feedback: The embarkation process was not good. We sat in a huge room for about 2 hours before they started boarding. ... Read more

My wife and I have been on a dozen cruises on several of the standard cruise lines. This was our fourth time in Princess. We found that over all service is diminishing. The food in the dining room was adequate but the service was not up ... Read more

Just came back from the 7 night cruise to Mexican Reviera (Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo) and my first Princess experience in 9 cruises overall. I have to say Princess is a notch above in several respects. They seem to be better ... Read more

I'm not a great fan of cruising, once you've seen one ship you've seen them all really, but my husband loves them so we compromise and it's an easy way to experience places you've never been to before. The ship was a bit tired, dated and ... Read more

This was our third Princess cruise and 17th overall. We choose this cruise for the ports and that we did not have to fly into LA. We don't drink and enjoy good food and self touring. Pre cruise was a breeze, embarkation went very quickly. ... Read more
