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

I've previously sailed Carnival (11 sailings) and once each on RCCL, Costa and Celebrity. All of my previous cruises were in the Caribbean so this was my first time sailing from the west coast and my first time on Princess. We stayed at ... 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

We have cruised a wide variety of itineraries and a diverse range of cruise lines. This cruise was very enjoyable. It had many highlights and a few disappointments. Embarkation and debarkation were as close to perfect as possible. Very ... 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

This was my fourth Princess cruise and was definately the best taken on this line. Princess really does the best job in hiring good people and training them well. Service was excellent. The staff is also great at organizing things on ... Read more

Our family has now taken it's 7th cruise. We all agree this cruise was the worst. We sailed with the Grand Princess last year and it was great. This time, well. No shuffleboard. We like shuffleboard. Ping pong, there were two tables that ... Read more

This was to be a fun and relaxing New Year's cruise for two "younger" seniors. It started that way but ended by spending last 2 days in the ship's medical center with Norovirus and needing intravenous fluids (costing over $1,900 ... Read more

My wife and I decided on the Grand Princess 10 night New Year's cruise to Mexico primarily because we wanted to experience a better New Year's party than the traditional dinner, mediocre band, and long wait until midnight. The Grand ... Read more

Since we live close to the San Francisco port, it's very convenient not to have to fly anywhere. Embarkation was fast and we were having lunch in the main dining room about 12:30. Had a great time on the cruise even though hubby had a ... Read more

We just returned from our back to back cruise, on Crown Princess. The first 8 days were fine. However, the first stop was Manzanillo which was a dump with no where to go and nothing to do or see. We went back to the ship. The next ports ... Read more

We have taken about 25 cruises, mostly with Princess and were getting a little tired of this cruise line but this one was probably the best. Mexico is not our favorite destination but very easy for us to do with only a 30 minute drive to ... Read more

We've sailed on the Princess Cruise Line five times before, but not since 2012. We remembered our experiences as very positive, but this cruise fell just a little short. Embarkation: organized and efficient, they make everyone wait ... Read more

Grand Princess sailing to Mexico 20-30 December was filled pretty close to maximum capacity yet aside from some occasions in passageways it did not feel terribly crowded. We sponsored a family member for the Bon Voyage Experience so we ... Read more
