Cruise was great. Medallion Class app? Not so much.
") But the worst part of the cruise prep was dealing with the Medallion Class app.Pre-cruise Covid testing wasn't as bad as we expected with the at-home test kits done with a live online proctor...."Read More

Another fantastic Princess cruise complete. We were on the Grand from LA to Vancouver in April. It was originally a 6 night cruise but 2 nights were canceled due to the ship going into dry dock after we disembarked in Vancouver. From arrival at LAX, meeting up with the Princess rep, a smooth transfer to the ship, very efficient Covid testing prior to check in and a seamless embarkation. Very ...

I was presently surprised at how easy and seamless the Princess Medallion was! It was just as easy as Princess had demonstrated!! It’s so easy to find your travel companions or order your drinks anywhere on the ship! Very nice addition! After 2-years of not cruising because of Covid 19, our first cruise out was on the Grand Princess April 19,2022 we had a mini suite. Our cruise was ...

I have plenty to say here, mostly negative, but... in all fairness... there were positives to note: PROS Embarkation process was very simple Using the Medallion for room access and purchases was very easy Outstanding nature presentations Excellent musical entertainment, comedians The ship band/orchestra is REALLY good Alfredo's Pizzeria (complimentary) produces consistently ...

The new "Medallion" tool is awful and there is no alternative offered to this horror

We chose this itinerary for the seadays involved in getting to and from HI. We'd also had nice experiences with Princess pre-pandemic so we opted for them again. While we were in lockdown, Princess spent two years developing an onboard network tool called Medallion. It's a device, the medallion they issue you on boarding to wear on your person, and it's a network for interfacing with ...

Disappointed in Princess

This was my retirement cruise. I alerted Princess and added the milestone in the Medallion app, but nothing was done to acknowledge. The ship should be in drydock by now, but should have been done much sooner. There were plenty of water leaks, a shattered window in the buffet. It is long overdue for maintenance. There were a lot of people / staff getting COVID. The Cruse Director, Steve, ...

We choose this cruise as it's been a "bucket list" cruise for us for a while, but mostly because back in November we were very concerned that our two week Caribbean cruise would be canceled, so we cancelled it proactively and booked the 15 day Hawaii cruise. We had previously sailed on Grand in December for a 10 day Mexico cruise and really enjoyed it. The trip across the ocean from LA to Hilo ...

There arent too many positive things I can say about this cruise. The ship was kept uncomfortably cold the whole trip, the food was mediocre at best, entertainment was only fair, staff was pleasant but overworked, and the ship had numerous problems, including toilets either not flushing or overflowing. The food at the buffet was not hot at any meal. We ate breakfast and lunch there everyday, ...

Great cruise, familiar ports (Cabo, La Paz, Loredo, Puerto Vallarta), good food onboard, exceptional staff and area has lovely weather. Cabo port requires using a tender to get to the pier. Since 2 other cruise ships were already there, our ship used its tenders which are a bit slower than Cabo's. La Paz is a walk-off port and a 40 minute bus ride to town. Once there, you'll see fun sculptures ...

Amazing Service but Old Boat

The customer service for this cruise was spot on, all the staff members were great! We stayed in a mini-suite which was very nice and the room service and cleaning staff were great. The food could have been better, I wouldn’t say it was bad, but definitely not amazing either. If you go on this cruise expecting five star dining, lower that expectation. My favorite food ironically was the pizza, ...

We liked the ports the ship was going to, Cabo was just okay... to built up. PV is busy but much more to do. The ship is nice but needs a refresh. the food in dining rooms was very good. we were un happy in the steakhouse and the Italian restaurants, they were over booked and the food suffered. Te shows were better than we have had in the past we were very surprised. Buffet breakfast is good but ...
