We chose this as a last minute Christmas cruise. As always we were impressed with the Hotel Staff. We were very fortunate with the weather, given the disastrous previous cruise, but that is the luck of the draw. We chose the Diamond ... Read more

Loved the three days at sea. The Regal Princess is a huge ship so we always found a place to sun tan or to sit for breakfast or lunch at the buffets. We did notice that our wine tasting event did not give us their shooter glasses as they ... Read more

With respect to boarding and disembarking, I think that everything is very fluid and functional with the exception of boarding or asked to fill out a form asking to move forward and make the inspection of our items that we brought with us. ... Read more

We chose this cruise specifically to experience the Panama Canal passage. We also wanted to visit Costa Rica and always enjoy Aruba and Grand Cayman. When we first boarded we went to the Horizon for lunch. My wife asked a couple if we ... Read more

Main reason, PRICE. Age range of passengers, 75 to 90. Food, going down hill from past Princess cruises. Menus repeated every 4 days and very boring. Lots of sick passengers spreading disease to others. Rough seas every day. Many ... Read more

The Island Princess is for us a large ship. While we are much happier and comfortable on a ship with no more than 1500 passengers, Island princess did have adequate space for quiet lounging or reading. The crowded areas were the dining ... Read more

We flew to LA and spent a few days touring before the cruise. When Sunday arrived we returned to LAX for our transfer to the Crown. Much to our surprise, instead of having to wait in long lines at the terminal we were taken to the Sheraton ... Read more

It started out all wrong with a 3 hour line for checkin. No water, seating or apologies. We were 1.5 hours late in sailing. I've never been on a cruise where the luggage arrived at your cabin before you did. The dining room menus were ... Read more
