5-day Keelung—Kagoshima—Busan: This was our 9th Princess cruise and our least satisfying. As stated in other reviews, the ship, food and on-board programming has been geared towards the Chinese market. While there is nothing wrong with that and while I applaud Princess for adapting to the sensitivities of its Asian market, what I don’t applaud is the total chaos that underscored the organization of this cruise. Two-hour check-ins, uncontained, unruly and loud behaviour in common areas, consistent slamming of state-room doors with yelling that could be heard through the walls, work-out and stretching rooms dominated by seminars during peak times, consistently huge line-ups at lunch and dinner, a 45-minute wait to retrieve our passport following the Japan leg of the trip, poor organization of excursions—in the case of the Japan one, we were asked to be in the theatre by 8:30 and didn’t hit the road until 10:20, total mayhem to re-board the ship. Ship staff yelled for everyone to get into single file but there were no defined walkways or roped off areas making it impossible for swarms of passengers to know where to go.The combination of large charter groups being led to and fro by barking tour guides coupled with defined times for dinner and excursions meant that congestion was inevitable. A number of ship personnel acknowledged that the system of multiple tour groups just didn’t work and they couldn’t wait until the cruise re-positioned itself in Australia. There was nothing relaxing about any of this cruise and the “escape completely” motto rang true only insofar as we wanted to escape the ongoing gong show. Read Less

This cruise experience was horrible. There are too many people and the food quality is bad. We went to a pay French restaurant for $35 per person for my family 15 pp. The food was bad, we booked it because of the Michelin one Star. If you do take this cruise, DO NOT go to any pay restaurants. The pizza bar is surprising good. The Gong Cha -Taiwanese famous bubble tea shop is horribly staffed and no skills......drinks are watery and waste of money. Ice cream bar tastes bad too, only ice, not milky. The international marketplace for buffet..the food was not good either. If it came out a good food, it will be gone in 5 mins. This is a charter cruise, so we are not in the tour group. So our dining is anytime and need to pre book ahead of time Going to the theater to watch the show is like going to a zoo. U need to line up one hour prior because it will be full in 5 mins except the first night, people did not know yet..... The stateroom is spacious with a decent bathroom - mini suite. I would book a small cruise and an America cruise route next time.... I tried Royal Caribbean Alaska route, it was much better. The shore execution time is very short....late embankment around 9am and need to be back by 4pm, not much can do/tour around since lunch will take 2 hours already. Read Less

I liked the look of the itinerary. However, there was no porter service at embarkation. The two Korean ports were a first for this ship, and nearly no one spoke English in the ports. All onboard activities, including entertainers and cruise activities were conducted in Chinese. And there were no onboard acknowledgments for Elite Captains Circle members. The ships signage is predominantly in Chinese, and the ships map we were given was also in Chinese. Of the 4,000 + passengers aboard, less than 200 spoke English. Service was an issue, as not enough of the staff spoke Chinese, so language barriers slowed service throughout the ship. The room are nice, and the stewards were helpful. But make no mistake...this a "charter" cruise. Princess was the operator, but not running the ship. All menus, tours, dining and entertainment are geared to Chinese tour guests. If you're expecting a Princess Cruise, you will be severely disappointed and feel cheated. Read Less
