We have been on 12 cruises before this, half of them on Princess, but we had never been on a cruise with so many sea days before (10) and were a little worried we'd get bored. We were never bored, but we were relaxed and enriched. We ... Read more

The head waiter and our dinner staff was fantastic, making sure that my dietary needs were meet. The entertainment was also fantastic. Other than that, the cruise was not the best. According to what I have read on Cruise ... Read more

We wanted a cruise both to and from Vancouver, so in spite of a previously forgettable experience on the Star, we decided to give it another chance. Embarkation was about normal except for me being demoted from Platinum to being a ... Read more

“Land Ho!” came the cry from the veranda of our mini suite on Dolphin deck on board the Princess Star. Normally you would think that would be your words after a 5 day ocean crossing Vancouver BC to Hilo, Hawaii. You'd be ... Read more

Chose this cruise because the timing was perfect and it involved no flights. I was impressed with the way the crew responded to a Noro outbreak, and the control achieved. I was not impressed with all of the line ups, for everything. ... Read more

After many cruises on many different lines, I feel that I am able to offer a pretty good opinion of our cruise with Princess. We knew that this was a "trial" - cruising a little early in the year for Hawaii (not to mention ... Read more
