Blah with a few good things
"The good so far is the cabins, the food in the dining room, the internet is fast, the cruise director and team are great.Bad are the shore excursions thru Princess as they take no responsibility for quality, the repetitive food in the buffet, the lack of oomph on the part of staff in general as the more seasoned complaints about training the newbies gets annoying, but the trainees are pleasant...."Read More

Review for Diamond Princess to Hawaii

We chose this San Diego round-trip cruise to avoid plane flights and because we enjoy Hawaii. First, boarding the cruise in San Diego too over two hours because of the Port Authority inability to expedite boarding,. Second, all the Specialty restaurants were closed for half the voyage because of staffing shortages (per maitre d'). The food offerings in the Main Dining room and especially on the ...

We chose this particular voyage to sail out of San Diego (first time) and escape the winter cold to Hawaii. Having been on 16 prior Princess ships, we had learned to expect the normal of "Princess perfect" for this voyage, also. Alas, this wasn't to be the case. Embarkation: Both the Diamond Princess and Disney Wonder were simultaneously in port. We discovered that the Port of San Diego is ...

We choose this particular cruise to Hawaii for the itinerary, after trying for the past two years to sail there and being cancelled due to Covid restrictions. While the sail was not a disaster sailing out of San Diego is a disaster. While being issued a boarding time by Princess an d arriving g a the scheduled time we waited 1 hour in line to drop off our luggage and then another 1 1/2 hours to go ...

I chose this cruise for the itinerary and was worried about the ship as it just came back in service. There are only about a 1000 passengers for a ship.that holds 2700. My first impression was Blah and after 10 days my impression hasn’t changed. The cabins are comfortable, with soft comfortable beds. The shower is small. The room steward excellent. The entertainment is poor, but princess ships ...

This is my first cruise post pandemic and chose this cruise to avoid distance embarkation point to avoid flying. Simply driving down to San Diego to board this ship was very attractive to us. We selected mini suite for its size and Club class for dinning convenience. It was well worth it for expedited seating and personal touch. The service onboard by everyone involved was impeccable, it was ...

This cruise was chosen to celebrate our engagement and as an early honeymoon. The fact that we were due to enjoy New Years Eve celebrations in Hong Kong including the expectation of fireworks the world has watched year after year. Instead no contingency plans were in place to make alternative options available and in fact many people who had made their own plans were impeded in attending these ...

Ship was dated, service was very poor, dining was average, take a large bank account with you because they will charge you like a wounded bull!! Don't trust what they tell you as we were told that to certain destinations by foot was not possible but it was, again another ploy to sell you their excursions which are grossly overpriced as are their drinks, note you will be paying a daily gratuity ...

Going around Asia areas Good arrangement Just be careful the Lang Co resort is not safe We will happy have a fee-transfer to central city from the ship, or local shopping mall, this way is more secure and safer May contact to local Saigon tourists or Viet Travel they are very good reputations in VietNam and may not over charge for their service. Toilets in the room is very old, ...

My wife and I chose this cruise for two reasons. We had never been to this part of the world, and we had never been on a Princess cruise. The ports that we were seeing seemed great, parts of the world like Singapore or Vietnam, that we may never go to if not for this cruise. I had read the the ship had just been refurbished in February of 2019, but I would be hard pressed to see that. I found ...

Princess line needs to look at its Customer Experience Policy

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

Princess cruise lines needs to relook at the way it does things. The Cruise Tokyo to Singapore was a good cruise but were there any memorable moments? No there were none I could tell you that related to the performance of the Cruise Liner. Why? Accounting! There policy of doing daily preauthorisation on your credit/ Debit Cards followed by a big debit at the end left me and others not ...
