Relaxed vibe on board an older ship
"However these flaws did not detract from a most enjoyable cruise with the highlights being the quality of the food which was first class only marred by a repetitive dining room menu and the great acts they had for evening shows and music in the various venues on the ship.The staff on board, and in particular the dining rooms were first class and we mainly ate in the International Dining room for breakfast and lunches on board and the Savoy Dining room in the evening...."Read More

For a little perspective, this is our 68th cruise, but first on Princess. We are Elite/Diamond members with NCL and MSC (Yacht Club only), and have cruised also with RCL, Carnival, Azamara, Viking (River only), and some others that are no longer around. Japan was on our bucket list and had a cruise booked there with NCL during the end of Covid, but that was canceled as Japan was not yet ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

Staff great. Food great. Itinerary to Japanese islands not good. First two islands just fish markets (1 or 2), very grey and bleak. Not even a cafe. Jeju disappointing. Dirty compared to Japan. Certain passengers from a certain country were intolerable (and there were a lot of them). Spitting, pushing at meal times, pushing on transit buses and in lifts (never wait for people to get out). Never ...

Loved the land portion, the boat's a bore

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Japan and busan were delightful, but this boat is a bore! most of the entertainment has been soloists - a juggler, a magician, a pianist, a harmonica player - and this is in the main theater! the ship is small and there aren't many options provided. the same two violinists, one pianist and a small band rotating around doing the same songs over and over. the food has been unimpressive. some ...

For the first time we were in a suite . Corfu midship. Beautiful stateroom ….great big bathroom! We loved it! Business class at sea! Breakfast in Sabatinis was a treat . The staff there were fantastic. Even sang Happy Birthday to my husband with a candle in a muffin! Dinners at night were very good …the lamb dishes especially. There were not enough sea days to enjoy the ship! Ports were ...

It was our 50th wedding Aniversary.Boarded 6/2/2024 Singapore to Singapore through Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam. We were so disappointed with the lack of hygiene and infection control. There were no hand sanitizer in lobby were lifts were and the hand washing bays in the buffet area were not being used in the beginning. When Gastro came to staff attention on the 17/2/2024, things changed. All of a ...

We did the 14 day Asia cruise on the Diamond Princess leaving from Singapore on 5th January and travelling to Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia. We chose this trip as we had done a 3 week back to back cruise back in 2016 on the sister ship, the Sapphire Princess which we loved, in particular the Atrium feature of these ships which provide a lovely meeting place for groups to meet up at. The ...

Cruise review I consider myself to be a fit and healthy 32 year old. Yet on this 10 night cruise I did not stand a chance !!!! I managed to catch not one but two viruses - gastro and the flu. So I was out for most of it and truly devastated. It was not surprising as staff do not enforce any hygiene protocols. Passengers used their hands to rummage and collect food in the buffet (multiple ...

This was our 11th cruise and 2nd princess (1st experience was Emerald Princess in September 2022 and was excellent) but was the worst ever. 1. Waiting for 2 hour at Yokohama even everything done online but to pick up the medallion. Suggest to narrow the check in window to minimize overcrowding passenger during peak hours. 2. Water shuttle horrible. Some disrespectful passengers picked up ...

This was our fourth cruise with Princess, and the most disappointing one. In general, the whole cruise was mediocre. Check in took about 40 minutes and we were not in the peak period. Room was reasonably clean but some furniture are showing wear and really tired. There was a cold ' Hello ' with the steward, but after I gave a 50 dollars tip the next day, I get some smile. Activities and ...

I was surprised the reviews of the boat were so negative. The boat is fine and if something is not right, the staff will fix it right away. The food was excellent, we had some very tender steaks in the dining rooms. I didn’t think the steakhouse specialty dining room was any better or worse than the main dining rooms. The Italian specialty dining room was an experience though, they gave you 6 ...
