First-time cruise with wheelchair

We saw the cruise advertised in our city's newspaper and thought why not. I've been wheelchair bound for the last 3 years and this was our first attempt for me to travel again. It was also our first cruise. From ...

Good itinerary, but cancelled excursions last minute and erroneous charges

We loved the itinerary, but were so disappointed to find that our excursion had been cancelled last minute by Princess with no offer to help replace it. So we were on our own in Wellington. Then the ship had a ...

Embarkation was the quickest I've ever experienced! Literally took less than 30 minutes - disembarkation was also the same. Amenities and stores on board were above expectations and the staff were all very lovely ...

Terrible, worse cruise ever!

We have been on more than 10 Princess cruises and this ship by far is the worst. Mini suite is so much smaller than on the older ships, had to move the table each time to be able to walk past the sofa. Balcony is ...

Such a fantastic ship and the step up in quality from our previous provider was HUGE. I didn't think it would be that different from our previous cruises but it really was. The rooms were so much tidier and ...

Cruising the Fiords

This a cruise you can do regularly and never get bored. The Princess ships make it one of the most comfortable and easy cruises to do. They provide the smoothest embarkation and disembarkation, the finest food on ...

First Princess Cruise & Last

Chose this cruise because it had an associated land tour after the cruise. The major issue was neither the cruise or land tour. It was what Princess did during booking. We booked a room almost one year before the ...

Smooth sailing on the Majestic

This is only the sixth cruise of my lifetime (on five different lines) and it was easily the best of the lot - to say nothing of the tremendous value it represented versus Regent et al. Even if all six cruises had ...

The three CCCs ship

This was our first Princess cruise. We chose it because we are booked for the 2019 World Cruise on Sea Princess, and this was a kind of "dry run" -- if one can have a "dry" run at sea! We are pleased we did it, as ...
