Sail Date: Mar 2018
Cabin: Balcony

Almost everything was wonderful on this cruise. Great ship, well maintained, easy embarkation, good food taste and selection, great balcony cabin layout and ship layout as on all Grand Class Princess ships. Shore excursions could have been better.

I love Chile and Peru and have been there several times.

The shore excursions in Chile were not thought out very well and overall were very good. You need more variety for shore excursions which means smaller buses. There were too many stops at churches and not enough free time shopping.

Cabin Review


Cabin BA

Excellent cabin layout, service and cleanliness. Cabin attendant, Romero, was as good as any I have had on my 102 cruises.

Port Reviews

San Juan del Sur

Paracus. Peru, downtown was much better than expected. Wonderful place for shopping, with relaxing sidewalk cafes along the water, excellent food, good beer and cocktails with very good prices. Very safe. I really liked this port, even more than Lima area.
