This was our 6th cruise with Princess and our first as Platinum members. Arrival: We arrived in Houston Friday night around 8pm and met the Princess representative at baggage claim, and were put in our own van for the hour ride to Galveston. Hotel: Princess booked us into the Hotel Galvez. It is a lovely old hotel, and very clean. The lobby is being renovated so you couldn't see the ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 50s

This review is based on my objective opinion and observations. We try to take one cruise a year. The last time we sailed on board Princess was in 2010. In 2011 we sailed with Celebrity. Last year we opted for a land vacation by renting a Class A RV for 15 days. We are a family of four and brought along my Mother. I do most of the planning when it comes to vacations. The wife is rather ...

My husband and I are not new to cruising. This was our first cruise with Princess but we have been on a total of 6 previous cruises including Carnival and Royal Caribbean. Hotel Info: My husband and I drove from 4 hours west of DFW and spent the night in Webster at the Hampton Inn off I45. We have learned to stay in the Seabrook-Webster area of Houston as hotel prices are about half of what ...

We sailed on the 3/23 sailing of the crown princess. Everything about the trip was problem free and enjoyable. We arrived at the port around 11am and walked right up to the suite line with no wait, then had a lounge to relax in with beverages. Within 20 minutes we were welcomed aboard, went right to our room and started enjoying our vacation. The suite was beautiful, the steward was nice and ...

My last cruise was in 1999 and much had changed in cruising since then. Though I loved those earlier cruises, both my husband and I really enjoyed every moment aboard the Crown Princess. The entertainment was so enjoyable, the food (of course) delicious, and the staff was incredible. Being a first-time cruiser, my husband packed his passport in his suitcase, so -uh oh - when it came time ...

7 Night W Caribbean on Crown Princess Mar 23, 2013 Perspective: We are both 50ish ;). We have cruised 25 or so times mainly on main stream cruises, and did cruise once on Crystal. We favor value for the buck and cruising off season away from school holidays. Usually we cruise just to be on a ship and enjoy a relaxing vacation. This cruise was booked one week before sailing. It was close to Spring ...

This was a really fun, nice cruise. Of course, it helped that we had great weather and very calm seas. I have done this cruise two times previously in the month of April, and the weather this time was much better. There is so much to do on the Crown Princess, or you can just relax with plenty of lounge chairs, both in the sun and in the shade. They also now have a 15 minute rule for saving ...

To give you a bit of background information, we are a family of four (husband and self in our mid -forties and our two boys, ages 16 and 13) from the Seattle area. This was our 12th cruise. Transportation from George Bush Airport to Galveston: There's been numerous posts on the easiest and most economical way to get from Houston to Galveston....well, I think we found the answer (at least for a ...

Love Princess Cruise Line. Have cruise many times. Was not crazy about the Galveston, TX Port, however. We have always cruised out of Porto Rico or Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Galveston was not convenient. Our plane was delayed due to snow, rental car place was closed when we arrived in Houston, took a crappy (not Princess sponsored because we flew in the day before) shuttle to Galveston to spend the ...

My husband and I went on the Crown Princess for our 5th Anniversary. We have always traveled with Carnival in the past and was hoping for an experience with less children. I was pleasantly surprised to find out there were less than 30 children onboard the ship and it was at full capacity. Embarkation was a nice and calm experience and I never once felt like we were being herded like cattle ...
