we choose this cruise because of the itinerary. not many options to sail from use to hawaii. we have sailed with princess before and were happy with it. ship needs refurbishing but service was very good especially captain. he was very visible all the time. would not go again. 9 days at sea is too much and i prefer a hot holiday. very cold at sea. embarkation was very long but the disembarkation went smoothly. dining room staff were very good. the head waiter was there every night not just on the last night for the tips. they need more sitting areas around the centre area to watch entertainment before going to dine shore excursions are very pricey so we did our own with other companies prices on the ships seem to get higher and they seem to be charging more for any extras the shops say duty free but the prices are about 1 1/2 times more than what you would pay at home for the same item. however i do like the fact that they had laundromat on site.

we choose this cruise because of the itinerary. not many options to sail from use to hawaii.

we have sailed with princess before and were happy with it.

ship needs refurbishing but service was very good especially captain. he was very visible all the time.

would not go again. 9 days at sea is too much and i prefer a hot holiday. very cold at sea.

embarkation was very long but the disembarkation went smoothly. dining room staff were very good. the head waiter was there every night not just on the last night for the tips.

they need more sitting areas around the centre area to watch entertainment before going to dine

shore excursions are very pricey so we did our own with other companies

prices on the ships seem to get higher and they seem to be charging more for any extras

the shops say duty free but the prices are about 1 1/2 times more than what you would pay at home for the same item.

however i do like the fact that they had laundromat on site.

Cabin Review

Cabin b527
the cabin was comfortable. at first we were in the oceanview. cabin smelled. sink was plugged and plumbing leaked all into our cosmetics. went to the desk to state my concerns after 2 days they upgraded us to balcony but we had to pay. cabin was comfortable but definitely needs to be refurbished.
