Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2018
  • Destination: Trans-Ocean
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

Travelled to Asia to join Cruise and Shanghai embarkation was abysmal. After arriving at the allotted time we were shown to a holding lounge for a bus transfer. The bus arrived and all passengers were told to load their luggage into the bus as the driver would not open the doors under the bus- those of us who could load the bus did so and helped those who were unable to do so. The bus arrived at portside and the driver stopped, jumped off the bus and we reversed the process to unload all the luggage procedure. We entered the shed and for the next four hours we waited while a Princess person was wandering around but did not have the courtesy to advise us of what was going on. We were the lucky ones as some passengers waited outside in the sun for some 90 minutes with no water or wheelchairs to help the not so well passengers - absolutely disgraceful of Princess. Our luggage finally arrived ay our cabin at approximately 7-30 PM. The cabin was small but clean and our balcony could just hold the 2 chairs and small table but the staff were very helpful. The Dining experience ( L6 dining) was not good with long delays in receiving warm food and a fairly ordinary menu. The Maitre d" of Hotel was very aloof and had no interest in upholding the dress code as noted on the Princess Patter - may need retraining. We found very limited areas to walk for 3500 passengers and in the L16 pool area people would be knitting or sleeping and the problem was even worse on L17 and the pools on both levels were so small for this size ship. The entertainment was average to say the least and will need to improve. The staff on the boat were mostly very helpful but the Service desk needs some people who understand english and know the job they are supposed to do. Shore excursions were expensive and passenger who have travelled more than us said they would not go on this ship again and that also applies to our group.

To sum up - will avoid this boat again and very disappointed with Princess and the way we were treated - Ship to big, more like a floating hotel rather than a cruise ship.

Cabin Review

Cabin BA A610

Cabin and Balcony was very small as it appears Princess wanted to cram as many people onto the boat as possible. Extremely small shower / toilet area and the two balcony chairs used up almost all of the space. Beds were comfortable and the staff looking after the room kept it clean with a very positive attitude
