This was a 'mother & daughter" get away. Just one day from Vancouver to Seattle then returning on the Quick Shuttle back to Vancouver. Boarding took a long time but the problem was the US customs trying to clear a 'gazillion' ... Read more

Was a 4 hour wait just to get on the boat, therefore we hardly had anytime to enjoy the amenities. During the 4 hour wait partially we were in an area where there were no seats, no water, no food. My husband actually left as he is not ... Read more

This was our 45th cruise ... only the second with Princess. 4 days from LA to Vancouver. First time we had a walk-in closet in an interior cabin. Outstanding bed - well appointed room. The entertainment on this ship was fabulous. ... Read more

We chose this cruise to get a feel of what Princess is all about. We have an Hawaii cruise booked with them and since this is our first time sailing with Princess, we thought we would take this mini cruise to get our feet wet with Princess ... Read more

We live in Georgia. We booked this cruise for a halfway meeting point with friends from Hawaii who are also frequent cruisers, and to make a port call in Oregon, a state we have never visited before. This is our 30th cruise overall, 25th ... Read more

We had a wonderful time on the 6-day Pacific Wine Coastal on Island Princess, Los Angeles to Vancouver. I had read the posts on the refurb and it took a little bit to maneuver the ship but I never found it annoying. You just adjust. ... Read more

We chose this itinerary because it fit our available time frame and looked like a nice way to enjoy a 4 day trip from San Pedro, Los Angeles, to Victoria and Vancouver. It was beautiful the first day, May 2, in LA Harbor but once we got ... Read more

I was so dissapinted with Princess. At least we had a good itinerary. The only good thing on this cruise was the hot dogs at the grill. Delicious & not salty. Evening food at the main dining room at night was just ok. Buffet food for ... Read more

This was billed as a Wine Country cruise but was really a repositioning cruise with 2 more ports than usual. The extra 2 days were a big draw for us, and the main reason we chose this cruise. The Ruby was the only ship at the San ... Read more

Is Princess Cruises losing it? This ship was badly overcrowded, with half-hour lineups to get into the dining room, standing-room-only in the theater, and no seats available in the buffet. A light lunch in the dining room one day took ... Read more

We took this cruise to do an overview of European cities/ports. From toboggans in Funchal to tours of Aix de Provence and ending up in Rome, it was great and the time passed very quickly. The penthouse suite was spacious ,the bathroom ... Read more

This was a cruise of firsts! It was our first time on Golden Princess, our first time in a suite (hence, the title), and our first try at a two-day 'taster' cruise. And we thoroughly enjoyed every moment! Pre-cruise: We spent a few days ... Read more

Long-time Princess cruisers, our first Transatlantic (five days after retiring!). Embarkation at Fort Lauderdale was consistent with other cruises from this, our home port - chaotic, but pretty fast. We settled in for a very relaxing ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise overall and the second with Princess. The full Canal Transit was our main reason for going, which left few options in our choice of ship. Complaints have been made here about the Island Princess, but on the whole ... Read more

We always wanted to go through the Panamacanal and i choose Princess, because the sailing dates fitted our plans best. The Island Princess is a small, older but nice kept vessel. Our fellow passengers were at an average in their at ... Read more

The worst food and service we have ever experienced in over 35+ cruises. Simple dinner in a non-crowded dining room took over 1 hour and 45 minutes! Customer service was not present, except possibly our room attendant. I can count on one ... Read more

The embarkation was simple and well done. We had an obstructed balcony but since it wasn't really hot we did not spend a lot of time on the balcony. We did sit out there in port. The obstruction was not horrible because the boat only ... Read more

This was our first TA and we had chosen the Crown Princess because we had been on the Caribbean Princess at the end of 2016. That experience was only okay, but we got a good price for our accommodations based on a "Hugh" onboard ... Read more
