This was a cruise round trip from San Pedro to the Hawaiian Islands. I suggest you use John Wayne airport and avoid LAX. We arrived the day before and spent the afternoon and evening at the Double Tree. They have a free shuttle to the ship. The embarkation was amazingly quick and easy. Our luggage was delivered to the cabin as we arrived. We has a wonderful dining experience due to the friendly outgoing wait staff and head waiter, our table mates, and the quality food. Our every request was quickly fulfilled. We loved the shows. They had a singer from New Zealand who was absolutely fantastic. They had a ventriloquist who was out of this world talented and funny. The ship premiered a new music and dance production (first time in the Princess fleet) that was outstanding: great numbers, wonderful music and a lot of fun. The Passenger Service staff was amazing. I had a malfunction of some medical equipment and they went above and beyond in their efforts to resolve the situation. They really went out of their was to help! The Captain was great. He was very visible throughout the cruise and spent a lot of time interacting with the passengers. He set the friendly tone for the crew and it showed. The excursions were wonderful. I highly recommend Volcano National Park on Helo. The view from the Research Center overlooks a volcanic caldera that was full of molten lava and was spewing lava into the air. All in all, we had an amazing trip and really had an opportunity to rest and relax. We really loved the ten sea days. We highly recommend this cruise!

One of the best!

Cabin Review

Cabin D332
Our cabin was spacious, clean, and in good shape. The bed was very comfortable. Our cabin stewart was attentive but not intrusive.
