Been on 8 Princess cruises, this time wasnt that great, the ship was tatty, on our balcony (B531) the wooden rail was loose, the toilet seat was broken, the hairdryer cut out every minute or so. There was a lot of rust. Theatre shows dire, the dining rooms menu hasnt changed since our first cruise and above all we didnt go round Cape Horn as the Captain told us 50 minutes before we should have sailed past we werent going to as "it would have been uncomfortable"... everyone paid a lot of money for this cruise, rhe main reason for booking it was to see Cape Horn. We will be doing this cruise again but it wont be on Princess. Passengers expected it to be rough. personally I feel the captain was far to PC, he should have said get comfy, dont walk round and enjoy an experience you will never forget. The port lecturer was amateurish and shore excursions a total rip off. We paid 100usd on shore for a trip that would have cost 399.95 with Princess.We like Princess and do have orher cruises with them booked but in future they will not be our first choice. The art auctions were just a hard sell and took FAR too long to get going. Prices for photographs were exceptionally high, we never saw anyone buy any ( 169.95 usd for a 16 x 20 ) on the plus side the entertainment team were terrific. No final night party with balloon drop, told it was because Primcess were an environmentall company and werent using single use plastics.. didnt stop them using dozens of large plastic bags for the egg drop, printing hundreds of plastic based photographs no one purchased and printing thousands of A4 flyers for the shops and the spa... out of control hypocracy Read Less

We chose this because of the itinerary and because it meshed with our flight. We had done Princess cruises in the past and pretty much knew what we were getting into. The good: Food in dining room had improved. Production shows much improved. The Bad: Food in buffet probably gave one of us food poisoning. It was one awful night. The "tendering" to ports without excursion was painful, slow crowded, just terrible, 2 1/2 hours. Ugly: The pending virus...no one was ever checked but the coughs increased. The mini suite is the only way to go if you can afford it. The ship was supposedly renovated in 2019 but we were hard pressed to figure out where or how. It has a strange combination of decor. Service is very good in most cases. This was the last Princess cruise I will book. Generally we felt "nickel and dimed" throughout the cruise. Read Less

We chose this cruise for the opportunity to see several landscape/wildlife areas of south america that we have always wanted to see. Tores del Paine National Park in Patagonia Chile was our primary reason for this cruise. We have cruised with Princess on four previous occasions- Panama Canal, Alaska, Caribbean and Rome to Athens. We have only had minor problems with Princess and thus the reason for choosing Princess for our South American adventure.. Unfortunately, this cruise with Princess was a huge disappointment because of numerous problems with shore excursions as well as repeated misleading or false information given to us by multiple Customer relations representatives and 800 Princess operators. The food, cabin service and entertainment were very good to excellent. Our cabin steward Frango was the best we have had in all of our cruising days. Our mattress was totally worn out with a large sag in the middle. The first night was terrible due to the mattress but then Frango figured out how to reinforce the middle so that we could sleep. As stated earlier, Tores del Paine national park in Patagonia chile was the main reason for choosing this trip. However, after we had a confirmed and paid reservation, Princess cancelled the excursion without explanation and then reinstated the excursion without 9 booked and confirmed passengers including my wife and I. We certainly would understand a weather or safety related cancellation but that was not the problem. We heard 6 different reasons for cancelling, none of which were true. The trip is over and we never did get the truth. We were offered $100.00 on board credit for our troubles which as an insult for all of the hours spent trying to resolve the problem. We also had problems with two more shore excursions partly due to weather but mostly due to lack of planning and organization on the part of Princess. We ended up changing the last four days of our South American trip and buying flight tickets from Santiago, Chile to Puerto Natales, Chile in order to see the national park that mysteriously was cancelled by Princess. This all happened two days before we left the US and at considerable added cost to us. One final note- I sent two letters via email to Jan Swarz- Princess CEO about our problems but they were intercepted by Princess Customer Relations as they have " authority to respond to all messages sent to the CEO. PS- this all happened well before the Corono Virus problems so that is not the excuse. Read Less
