We have been on this ship several times in the last couple years. The ship is ok-not our favorite. Had some great crew members take care of this time on the ship. The crew in Crooner's Bar was awesome(especially Vish). Carmine in Vines was awesome as well. We only did one tour with the ship. Most of the time we like to explore ports on our own. The entertainment was good --some just ok but some ...

was thrilled with Princess on this one. I've done them many times and, probably give them another chance but, this cruise ship really need to go into dry dock to be redone. Bed were poor and, the condition of ship wasn't in great shape. We had to wait for 2 hours to disembark the ship in Rio because of immigration which was terrible people standing and, waiting in line for hours . On the other ...

I GOT SICK ON THE SECOND DAY OF THIS CRUISE! And I'm still sick! Thank God we took a 2 day private tour of Iguazu Falls before getting on...or it would have been a bad time overall.. The second night onboard, after leaving the Crown Grill, we went to the Magic Show..I saw clouds of smoke come down from the top center of the theatre.. I started coughing w/ a tickle in my throat for the ...

We have travelled all over the world with Princess since the 1970's and have had some wonderful cruises with them. We, as Elite members, are now very disillusioned and disappointed with the attitude of the captain, senior officers and senior staff. Very Sans Souci attitude---we have your money so who cares!!!! The embarkation in Buenos Aires was a disaster---very few knowledgeable staff to show ...

Somehow I have managed to delete my very long review twice so I'll just make is a short as possible. Herded like cattle at embarkation. No bath towels for two days because they could not discharge gray water. So my arrival was a surprise to them. Could not enjoy the expensive aft balcony as it smelled like rotting food garbage the whole 19 days. Could not enjoy the aft view because it ...

Enjoy quiet days at sea and the cruise visited some Caribbean island new to us. Itinerary up the Brazilian coast was interesting and included many days at sea. Good fellow passengers being a healthy mix - lots of British, Australians and Canadians. The crew were, as always it seems, excellent, cheerful, friendly and always willing to help. Entertainment was quite good overall. The ...

We chose this cruise on the basis of itinerary and were not disappointed. We embarked in Buenos Aires and disembarked in Port Everglades. Both went very smoothly and quickly but we have Global Entry with let us pass the mass of people waiting to clear immigration. Be sure to have your card as they don't have a fingerprint reader. We ate every dinner and most breakfasts in the MDR and found the ...

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary, ticking off our bucket list. The embankment was quick and we were on board and in our cabin in no time, although princess did text us before the cruise saying there maybe long waits but this was not the case for us. A very relaxing cruise with lots of sea days. Argentina and Brazil were well worth seeing we took princess organised trips which ...

We chose this cruise based on the itinerary and a long history with Princess. This ship really needs to be dry docked for R&R (remove and replace) things like, beds, toilets, carpets, railings and a few modern updates. Our Caribe balcony needed cleaning, new carpets and the balcony table, chairs, rails and windows never were cleaned unless we asked the steward to do it daily. What is it ...

We were going to Patagonia, but we decided Uruguay would work better. Embarkation was problematic. We were robbed in security in Buenos Aires. Why have security cameras if the face is unclear? We got to see the film of the guy stealing our stuff. Why didn't all of our stuff come through the conveyor belt? The cabin was comfortable; the service and amenities were good; the food was lovely, ...
