I won't use Princess again. Always trouble with time lines including being crammed into a room before embarkation. 3 of 5 tenders were down for Panama excursions which left little time on land, 7:30 am early disembarkation turned into 8:00am. Food in MDR started out fine but got worse - poor cuts of meat. We were told to get our outgoing mail in by a certain time each port. Problem? They ...

This is not the company that we knew, our previous cruise was 5 years prior to this and we have 16 Princess cruises to measure this disaster against, We chose the cruise which was over Christmas and New Year going through the Panama Canal. Embarkation took over 2 hours , we stood outside in a line with no refreshment , check in was tedious. Christmas decorations were minimalistic with ...

Desired a short cruise over the Christmas season. However we chose a large ship with a large passenger capacity and the ship was completely full. Tours were poorly organized. Tenders were not all in working order. Missed our tour of Panama City due to lack of maintenance of tenders and disorganization of moving people off ship to get to shore. Complete power failure on one occasion - very ...

Two words to describe it, below expectations. Our cabin steward was very efficient with what he could be in control of but we never got bathrobes! He can't supply what he does not have. It took two days to get pre-bought water two days for soda cups and nvere did get coffee card cups. We had as per norm deluxe balconey and we saw spring breakers from inside cabins walking all around the ship even ...

The title says it all. Lots of Spring Breakers doing some serious drinking--boys and girls. Glad no one went over board. It was one big party for them......ill leave it there. Our state room (Riveria deck) never got cool, always felt stuffy. Cabin steward did great job. Many workers seemed overwhelmed by the number of Spring Breakers and just let things go. My problem was with over ...

Real Disappointment for Princess

I have sailed princess crown x 2, ruby, then the emerald. This was an 8 day cruise on the Eastern Caribbean for New Years! I would have thought that champagne for the new years toast would have been complimentary-- but that was not the case. Even in sea days, the decks lacked lounge chairs set up despite having a full ship. People were fighting over the chairs that were available. The ...

Boy, what disappointment. We have sailed many, many times on Princess, as well as a few time each on Royal Caribbean and Carnival and once on Holland America. We have always preferred Princess because between these 4 lines, their food was always vastly superior, but no more. The food in the dining room was poor at best. The menu choices were lacking, the service not attentive. Many of ...

Traveled on the Emerald from Jan 30th-Feb 6th of 2016. This was our 4th Cruise with Princess and don't think we will sail with them again!! Menu was the same thing night after night with some sort of FISH fixed 50 different ways. Main dining which should be special took for ever to get our food but after the 3rd night there was nothing to look forward to. Starters were always shrimp, only one ...

I am Elite on Princess and this was without a doubt my least favorite cruise. I am usually very understanding and forgiving but this cruise caused me to wonder if I really want to continue with Princess. Embarkation: We were traveling with a sight impaired person and embarkation was awful! Had to sit and wait in line for wheelchairs and there were only 2 available. After 1-1/2 hours, I ...

Having been on a couple cruises before, with Carnival, we expected a lot more from Princess than what was delivered. Signed up for the basket of fruit in our room everyday, received exactly 2 baskets for the 8 days aboard. Water ran to the hot side only in our cabin. Cabin was small! Food on the buffet was on par with Golden Corral Country Buffet. The fruit selection included overripe ...
