I chose this cruise because my 87 year old mom wanted to go on a cruise to see the Panama Canal where her uncle had been stationed. This was her first cruise. As a person living with a Gluten Free diet, she did have some concerns about food options. This was quickly alleviated when she found how accommodating the Staff were to her needs. The options in the Main Dining Room were superb and by ...

From checking in to checking out this was a great experience. The food was great. Entertainment top rated! The ship layout is easy to navigate which I can't say is true on all ships. The crew was very friendly-made you feel special. They captain was informative and not stiff in his talks as most captains are. The panama canal locks were special sight to see. We overnighted in Cartagena. Many ...

We had the Panama Canal on our bucket list. Since we sailed many times with Princess (Platinum members) we chose the Emerald Princess even tho it was an older updated ship. There were so many issues. Our room C604 was always warm. We talked to the desk and room attendant and while courteous and encouraging it remained warm for the whole 10 days. We paid for drink package but we’re told every day ...

I choose Princess Cruise for the variety and quality of their food. Princess culinary is the best, to my opinion. The restaurant menu are different each couple of days. Princess prioritizes quality over quantity. The amount of food in each plate is adequate for me but may be small for others. This is a plus, because we have the opportunity to order more plates and can teste more ...

Great Crew, Good Food, Fun Games, Entertainment and Ports. Poor Embarkation and Unsafe Excursions.

Princess does a great job of selecting and training their staff to be friendly, knowledgeable and fun. We enjoyed the games, dining and entertainment. All six of us had fun playing bocci ball, golf, croquet, etc. The food selection was good and tasty. The Indian curry was a big plus. The comedy, dancing and singing were fun. We took at least one excursion at every port. We all enjoyed the ...

Princess Emerald is a great ship, the staff is wonderful ,the food is awesome and the excursions were great! My husband and I had a great time. The disembarkation was made easy, very organized which made life good. I will definitely book another cruise with Princess in the future. The ship was exceptionally clean , having everyone wash their hands before entering the eating areas. We were on the ...

I chose this cruise because I wanted to go through the Panama Canal, but I did not want to do the longer cruise that goes Florida to California. I also chose it because there were few days a see and interesting port. It is a great cruise. The entertainment was great. There was always something to do. The staff and service was wonderful. The Crooners Bar always had great service and musicians. ...

Princess Cruiselines never fails to impress! We’ve just finished our 4th cruise and the level of quality has been consistent both before and after COVID. The buffet changes were handled very well also. It was a pretty seamless transition from self-serving to being served, cafeteria-style. Hand washing was encouraged inside each entrance and I’m confidence these policy changes would also ...

I chose this cruise because of the dates, as well as the destinations. I enjoyed going to the spa, Ma Hernonette Lapira gave me a few great massages and information about how to take care of my muscles. Marc and his team at the Sanctuary helped me get extremely relaxed and feel pampered. Lyn and Christina provided excellent service at Crown Grill, and John at Crwn Grill put in extra work on some ...

Not the Princess We've Been Accustom To

Princess Cruise Line had always been my first choice for cruising because the food, entertainment, daily offered activities, and just the personal touches were exceptional but no longer. We wouldn’t be so disappointed had we’d been told Princess was not up to par, but we weren’t and so we are highly dissatisfied. The concept of the mobile app is great, but the application is terrible. Most ...
