Great cruise for those living close to the SF Bay area for easy embarkation and disembarkation. The ports of Santa Barbara and San Diego offer a lot of things to do. Long Beach not so much, and Ensenada is, well, Ensenada, but it is needed ... Read more

We have sailed Princess four previous times and have been extremely pleased. This time, not so much. The Royal had just got out of dry dock prior to its Rome departure. It should have stayed there a while longer. It was not ready for a ... Read more

We chose this cruise after sailing on the Regal Princess and being wowed by her. The experience on the Royal was vastly different though. Don't get me wrong, the ship is stunningly beautiful and the staff all top notch, no complaints ... Read more

The repositioning cruise was chosen because it seemed to be well priced and was a nice way of returning to Australia. The ports were an annoying interlude between the sea days. No bridge Director on board yet lots of sea days. Sorry ... Read more

We chose this cruise for it's length (30 days) and ports of call. Princess does deliver on quality every time. It's not the most luxurious ship out there and the cuisine isn't outstanding but overall service is very good. The cabins are ... Read more

Although we were on the 30 day portion of this cruise there were a number of disorganized or poorly administered issues that prevented this from being a home-run. Most notably among the administration issues was the India visa fiasco. We ... Read more

My wife and I chose this cruise due to the price, the duration and the departure date. Our cruise was for 30 days sailing from Southampton at the end of September, so we avoided some of the autumn at home in the UK. We considered the ... Read more

This was our 2nd cruise to Hawaii, both on Princess. The first was on her sister ship the Golden. I read the reviews for months and was not sure if we had made the right choice but was glad we continued with our booking in the end. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because the Canal was on our "bucket list" and the last minute deals to fill the cabins were excellent. We like the size of the Coral Princess but if you need water slides and discos into the night to ... Read more

Great (different itinerary) with a few extra days in Vancouver BC. Embarkation was crowed because 3 ships were in Vancouver the day we left. The ports were beautiful and there was plenty to do in each port exploring on your own. Vancouver, ... Read more

Hello, this morning we disembarked from the Ruby Princess after a one-day re-positioning from Seattle to Vancouver. Our cabin was C409, we paid about $140 each for a balcony, but we had started out booking an inside room. About a month ... Read more

We choose this cruise because going through the Panama Canal had always been something we'd wanted to do. Although this is listed as a 15 day cruise we actually got on in Vancouver which made it 18 days. Vancouver is a great city to ... Read more

This was a Pacific coastal cruise--somewhere I wanted to see. It was vintage Princess, but the Coral Princess is very nice no matter what you may read in these reviews on Cruise Critic. Yes, there are a couple of chips, etc here and ... Read more

Chose this cruise because we wanted to see the Panama Canal and it embarked from our home city of Vancouver. Embarkation went smoothly but dis-embarkation took a while to get rolling but went smoothly once it started. Ship organized ... Read more

The Island was repositioning from Vancouver to Ft. Lauderdale and offered a three day segment from Vancouver to San Francisco. Since I live in the SF Bay Area my friend and I thought it would be a fun getaway. We splurged on a Suite ... Read more

Maybe it just wasn't fair... our last cruise- last year a 17 day TA from Fort Lauderdale to Venice was fantastic- wonderful service, from the ding room to lounges to the cabin. Our tours, except one, were more than perfect. On this ship ... Read more

The Entertainment Cruise Director and his staff were excellent but most of the other crew I could only rate as average. The balcony BA cabin was adequate for a 14 days cruise but the balcony was small. The ship itself is great but there ... Read more
