Mini Review Discovery Princess January 21-28, 2023 Mexican Riviera We are Darren and Cindy from Great Falls, Montana. We are in our 50’s and regularly cruise on both Princess and Celebrity. We left Great Falls, Montana on Friday, January 20 in a Blizzard. I am glad the Alaskan Airlines plane took off to Seattle, then a connection to LAX. All was on time. We stayed overnight ...

Since new ship that was doing around trip LA, picked this cruise and especially it being a 10 day and holiday cruise. Been to Sea of Cortez ie into the Gulf of California before but it is worth doing again. But when got on board was disappointed that it did not feel like a new ship. The walls were not real wood but artificial wood ie pictures of wood behind clear plastic to give appearance of ...

I have sailed 8 times with princess. Mom likes princess because that is the only cruise line she has gone with. She is not one to complain. However we all agreed on the following. Staff was extremely rude and condescending at times. Did not go out of their way to make it a personal encounter. Everyone seemed like strangers and very unhappy. We opt for formal dining our server and wait ...

Overloaded and excursion guide was 45 min late

The ship is beautiful but was 500 passengers overloaded and way under staffed. Thanksgiving week. Our excursion guide was 45 minutes late for a 4 hr $250 trip. We returned early because there was a 2nd group waiting. We got 3 hrs of our 4 hrs paid for. The excursion desk did nothing. When I found a real top person and complained, the manager of the excursion stated all was on time. He ...

Beautiful ship, but the Medallion app was a concern

We had cruised earlier this year on Majestic Princess (a sister Royal-Class ship to Discovery) and loved the experience. But as with Majestic, we had some issues, many related to the Medallion app (note: the actual Medallion itself worked flawlessly). Medallion app- absolutely useless on embarkation day. 1 - it removed us from the "green lane" when we arrived at the port. We then closed ...

Discovery Princess, a fine ship to return to cruising

After 3 years finally a return to cruising and Discovery Princess didn't disappoint. Overall an excellent cruise with a few minor blips but that is to be expected. Embarkation: We were in the green lane and had an 11:30 boarding time and had no problems getting on the ship. We were probably on board by 11:45. Dining: We ate in the Ketchikan dining room and the food there was ...

DISCOVERY PRINCESS and the dumbing down of Princess Cruises

Back in 2015, my wife and I took a 10 night repositioning cruise from New York to Ft. Lauderdale on REGAL PRINCESS. Despite the ship having a few quirks, we had an amazing time. Service, food and entertainment were pretty much top-notch. All of this made us really look forward to sailing on DISCOVERY PRINCESS. First of all, like the REGAL, DISCOVERY is stunning. The ship is absolutely ...

Loved this Alaska cruise, and loved (a bit surprisingly) the Discovery Princess

We booked this cruise last minute after a cancellation by another cruise line. After booking I read reviews here and my heart kind of sunk thinking we'd booked a pretty sub par Alaskan cruise on a sub par "older style" ship. Well, I'm VERY pleased to report that was not the case for my wife and I. The Good Entertainment (Top notch!; Rock Opera + Spotlight Cafe were both fantastic!). ...

Medallion Class Crap

This sailing was very near full. According to staff on board telling guests it was also a sailing with a significant number of new employees on board who were training...and it showed. The level of service was extremely disappointing with many crew members saying "no" and being generally unhelpful or short with guests starting from the first day. Order the same drink three times and get three ...
