Disappointing Experience on Several Fronts
"We sailed on Grand Princess on February 11th, 2020, out of San Francisco and south along the coast of Mexico. We chose this cruise because friends were going, and because we had never visited any of the ports..."Read More

We didn’t want to get off the Grand Princess ship after completing a five day trip to Cabo! We had enjoyed ourselves so much with staff we didn’t want to go home so quickly! The Facet Salesmen were so fun to talk with and they gave us the best deals! Harry the Manager, genuinely cares about your shopping deals are good for you. None of them are pushy, they suggest items similar to compare to make ...

We chose this simple 4 day cruise just to get back to cruising again after 5 cruise cancellations this past year. We wanted to see for ourselves the new protocols and procedures that are currently in place. We wanted to be prepared for the cruises we have booked for early 2022. This was a fun, short, cruise that answered those questions. Princess , and particularly the Grand Princess were well ...

Princess is Back and Keeping Us Safe!

So great to be be back! This is actually my second cruise back. I went on one 2 weeks ago. Ships are running at reduced capacity. Everyone is vaccinated and tested before they board. Not crazy about all of the people running around in shorts and flip flops in the dining room. But Princess' Covid protocols are on point. Some passengers are being jerks about the onboard mask mandate - but ...

An almost complete let down compared to prior princess cruises

We had decided to cruise on princess for our third time this October and brought a friend for their first cruise on princess. Prior to going we talked up the wonderful experiences we’ve had on princess before. What a let down and embarrassment this cruise was. With the exception of the wonderful staff this was the worst cruise I’ve experienced. It seems that princess is cutting corners and costs ...

What a Great Crew

This was my first cruise since the pandemic began and I was eager to get on a ship. Selecting a cruise that departed out of Los Angeles (home), and rather brief, seemed a no-brainer. In my opinion, Princess went to great lengths to insure the health and safety of guests and crew alike. Requirements included proof of vaccination, a Covid test within 48 hours of sailing, and wearing a face mask in ...

We are new to Princess and wanted to just get away for a short time. We did two back to back cruises (the 4 day and 5 day out of LA) to enjoy the days at sea along with the ports. We arrived at LAX at 8:30 am on the day of the cruise (booked through Princess) and waited until 10 am for the bus to the ship. We were in group 1 for boarding; the check-in process was seamless and waited in the ...

Best Show I’ve ever seen anywhere!

I’d always heard this ship was fun. It is! Great food, service- But we saw this show, An entertainer named DARREN DOWLER. Singer, guitarist, impressionist, darn good looking! Truly it was the best show I’ve ever seen. Many people were upset because it was the first night and they missed him. He should have been on the first real sea day. He’s a legit star. Most cruise shows are so-so, but this was ...

THANK YOU Princess for enforcing vaccinations, distancing and wearing masks! While others complained in their reviews about "medical terrorism", I hope they will never have to go through COVID-19 illness and find out the reason why we prevent in the first place (we have, and we don't want it again). Basically everyone was compliant (crew 99%, passengers 95%), and not grudgingly - of course you ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

This was our first Princess cruise, so we truly didn't know what to expect other than what we had read and what Princess is known for. Embarkation was a breeze even if we were required to fill out a medical questionnaire stating our exposure, or lack of exposure, to Covid-19. No temperature check or screening of any kind. Once onboard, we found evidence of what all the previous reviews had ...

My partner wanted to sail under the Golden Gate Bridge one last time so he convinced me it would be great for both of us. I had expected to have sunny days with a little bump here and there but that is not what happened. No sun, cold wind and all kinds of sea bumps. I enjoyed the food in the buffet and the dining room but my partner did not. Our cabin seemed smaller than usual for a balcony ...
