15 day Hawaii Cruise from San Francisco. We are senior couple, cruise was easy and enjoable for us, in total 10 days at sea, in mostly bad weather, went fast, did not feel long or boring. Very clean, nice ship, in great condition, we did not see any sign of age at all. Crew was constantly cleaning, washing, painting in each port. Delicious cuisine, in main dining room and buffet, better than at our previous cruises. Healthy, small portions in the main dining rooms, various enough for any taste and culture. Overall good Service, friendly staff, talented, funny, very enjoable Cruise Director, sea days and evening activities for all ages, enjoable and various evening entertainment. Well organized, easy boarding and disembarcation. We took two island excursions with Princess, both were very good. Silcon Valley Tech Tour was not good, uninformative and boring. Internet, like at our previous cruises, had problems, though I purchased the most expansive all-time package, was able to connect most of the time. Texting was working only IOS to IOS, Apple to Android did not work. Would be nice to know it in advance. Despite those minor things, we definitely enjoyed the cruise, and recommend this cruise to others, especially to senior people.

Great ship!

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BF E207
First impression was that it is small, it has everything two people need, Great large private balcony, full view, weather was chilly, windy, with rough waters, but balcony is well protected from all sides and was pleasant to be at even in bad weather.
Though small, surprisingly cabin has enough storage and was quite comfortable for two people.
Even though located in the forward part of the ship and sea was very rough waves did not bother us, balance was good. We would select this cabin again.
