We chose this cruise because it began and ended in San Francisco, which is only about an hours drive from our home. It was our first long cruise, and Princess Cruises kept us informed on line through their website of all that we needed. ... Read more

We chose to accompany friends on the New Zealand tour, as they are seasoned travellers and spoke highly of their experiences. We certainly had a great deal of pleasure from our first cruise especially being able to choose to do as much ... Read more

We booked this 2-week Southern Caribbean cruise to celebrate my husband's milestone birthday with his family and some friends. There were 9 of us total, and all of our cabins were in the same general area which made it easy to visit and ... Read more

It was our first cruise and we absolutely loved it! The ship itself was magical, we especially loved the Atrium and the Open Deck Pool on Deck 14. The Service was amazing! Every member of the crew we interacted with felt like old ... Read more

BEST CRUISE EVER! We took the Panama Canal Cruise out of Fort Lauderdale. We had been on a couple more Princess cruises that were good, but this one exceeded our expectations! This one was over the top SPECTACULAR! ONE: It is extremely ... Read more

We live near San Francisco, Grand Princess is the only ship based in SF so we use it. We prefer small ships like the Pacific Princess. We use Princess because we think it is good value for money, we like the decor, and the service is ok. ... Read more

We love cruise days but unfortunately the weather did not cooperate. It was cool and some days had very rough seas. We didn't find too much to keep us busy that we were interested in. The shops were few and very small. The sun came out ... Read more

We have done the Hawaii round trip cruise numerous times now....each time it seems more and more things have been removed from the experience. Singers and dancers only perform 3 times during the cruise and the rest of the nights are some ... Read more

We had a good time but the ports were a disappointment despite having visited them before. We took this cruise because we had such a good time on a similar itinerary a year ago. We had to skip Mystery Island. It was too rough for the ship ... Read more

Yes, there were long queues at embarkation but it's a world wide issue as port authorities ignore the need to rethink the embarkation process/facilities. All cruise lines are limited by the design of the terminals. Port authorities need to ... Read more

We had successfully sailed with Princess three times before and when I found that Princess had a cruise from Fort Lauderdale through the Panama Canal around my preferred date, we booked it without really checking alternative cruise lines. ... Read more

My DH does not like sea days so this is the perfect cruise. We were off ship in a different country nearly every two days. The Island Princess is in need of some TLC. Some of the hallway carpets, especially on Emerald deck, were ripped ... Read more

My wife and I love this ship. Great deck plans, so much to do, bands were great, dancing was great, all was great, except the food quality declined since our cruise last January. Our cabin was large and everything was nice, except the ... Read more

A Panama Canal cruise was on our to-do list for a long time. The Island Princess is a mid-sized ship, so it doesn't have a lot of entertainment venues. Our low-end balcony cabin was just right, as we didn't spend a lot of time there. At ... Read more

Chose cruise because it left from Melbourne and we thought it would be a change to cruise New Zealand in the middle of January, which is supposed to be the best time to visit. Embarkation was smooth, on board within twenty minutes as ... Read more
