Disappointed in Princess

|

Never Again on Princess!

Even though there was only one other couple ahead of us in line, check-in for this cruise was very slow, due to a very elderly check-in clerk who appeared to be confused by their passports. A full thirty minutes ...

First trip with the Princess

Anytime we make it out of HO-HUM Nebraska is a real treat for us, however we had a rough start out of the gate and were set back a bit from the experience we had cruising from port Everglades. Embarkation went off ...

Sub par and disappointing

This was our third cruise. The other two had been on Royal Caribbean and in retrospect, we should have stayed with RC. Part of our disappointment were the ports of call and certainly the entertainment. Ports of ...

Things have changed

First, I want to make an observation. If you are a first time cruiser then you will not agree with a lot of this review. But, if you have cruised in the last 5 years you may. Embarkation was a breeze. Princess ...

Emerald Princess not a gem!

Having sailed on Carnival once and three times on Royal Caribbean, we decided to give Princess a try because we heard it was a step up from our previous cruises. It was more of a step backwards than a step above. I ...

This was my third cruise with Princess. I was excited to be on the larger ship again. My first cruise was on the Crown and second on the Coral. For some reason I find it easier to navigate a larger ship. ...
