Great itinerary sailing from Tianjin to Melbourne however the overall cruise experience was poor. Much of the entertainment was in the Piazza which was too small to view the action plus the noise generated made it impossible to deal ... Read more

My wife and I chose this cruise mainly because of the Asian itinerary as we haven't travelled to those ports before. We also wanted to experience princess. Embarkation went fairly smoothly in Tianjin and soon we were on board and to our ... Read more

The 5 major areas Princess failed miserably are as follows: 1. EMBARKATION IN TIANJIN: Upon arriving at the Tianjin Pier after the long 4 hour drive from Beijing was total chaos. There was no system for queuing or where we should go ... Read more

We had a Vista Suite on this Cruise from Beijing to Sydney. We travelled last year on the Diamond Princess from Japan to Sydney and had a wonderful time. Unfortunately the Golden Princess was a not nearly as good as the Diamond. The ... Read more

I totally agree with all reviews that have been left so far. We had high expectations of Princess lines...but unfortunately this cruise did not live up to these expectations. The ship itself was fine (except for the area near the Vista ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Princess Cruises and we were very disappointed with the ship. It lacked any wow factor, the entertainment was poor and very repetitive, the food choices weren't great but the quality was fine. There were ... Read more

Reading other reviews I'm beginning to think I was on a different ship. Maybe we were just lucky but our cabin was beautiful, comfortable and clean. You could get food 24 hours a day and was delicious. Some cruise lines (P and O take ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it was a one way trip from Beijing to Australia and it worked well with a land tour of China we had booked. The service was good and overall the meals were great. The ports of call were interesting with stops in ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the ports and to disembark in Melbourne. The entertainment was poor with many walkouts. Activities during the day were repetitive and staff trying to sell you products. Very few lectures, information on ports was ... Read more

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

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
