This cruise ticked a few items on my bucket list giving me the opportunity to visit Macchu Pichu and Iguaza Falls. I've been on the Emerald Princess before and she's my favourite ship in the fleet. The cruise was part of a package with flights, transfers and hotel accommodation so everything was done for me. I was in an interior cabin on Deck 10 which didn't worry me as I love the absence of light ...

We wanted to go to Machu Pichuu, and the the tour company who handled this 72 hour excursion was wonderful--pricey but worth it. I wish I could say that about the rest of the cruise. My husband and I have been on 60+ cruises between us, from the high end (Regent, Oceana, Asimar) to the low end (Carnival). This was our first (and last) Princess cruise. Some of the reasons include: mediocre food ...

Needs a major refurbishment and disappointing for Princess

We chose Princess because of prior positive experiences on other ships like the Royal and Regal. We sailed 25 times on Princess before this cruise. We paid a premium for the full South America cruise. Unfortunately the ship was disappointing compared to other Princess ships. Embarkation was smooth and fast. My stateroom was outdated and worn. The carpet was stained and old. The bathroom was worn ...

Decent itinerary. I would sail this itinerary again This ship needs new staffing and DEF new Princess singers! By far, some of the worst singers are on the ship at this time.. The lead male, dark hair an olive complexion, on the short side, is HORRIBLE! We walked out of two shows, so did others! The tall lead male is decent, but no range. The female that wears the blond wig is the best ...

South America was one of the last places on our to-cruise list. Was a mini-disaster. The ship was packed with rude people. Lines everywhere for everything. Loud people. Line jumpers. Angry, politically intense people with election-night hangovers ready for a fight. Hall running kids. Hallway blockers slowly and aimlessly walking, weaving back and forth, arm-in-arm down hallways. A ...

We have been on the Emerald before in 98 i had hoped it had been upgraded more than it has our Suite had one of the new Princess beds which was nice but the couch was worn out and very uncomfortable TV system needs to be upgraded to interactive and larger TV's in Suites. Bathroom i would do away with Tub ...

Enjoyed the mix of sea and port days, but felt they could of offered more on sea days. There was one lecturer on board, who delivered a good variety of talks. The weather wasn’t great so unless you like to gamble and play trivia there was not much to entertain. The ship doesn’t have TV on demand, so I they play movie over and over and you have catch it right. Our room furniture was very ...

Interested in the ports of call. They were ok but, not ones I would definitely return to. However, we did stay a few days in Santiago and enjoyed it there. The entertainment was fine, different than on other Princess ships, were enjoyable. Food was good, I think on the salad bar in Horizon it needs to be better organized. Room Steward I had, Joseph, was great. I was disappointed with the ...

I had a great cruise on the Regal princess in April 2017. Since then, Princess raised my cost for a bottle of Korbel Champagne with tip from $23 to $39.10. That is a 70% cost increase! They raised wine prices greatly and did away with their wine card program which allowed you to pre-purchase a number of bottles of wine at a discounted price. I really think they blew it as the reasonable wine ...
