Sail Date: Oct 2018
Cabin: Balcony
Rainbow Falls in Hilo

We chose this cruise for being round trip from Vancouver.

Embarkation was very fast since we were almost the last to board the ship. Our luggage arrived inside our cabin very quickly. The seas were rough leaving Vancouver and we couldn't sit by the pool till day 5 where we watched Mamma Mia!

We were disappointed with the selection and food in the dining room. The Crown Grill and Share were excellent! The staff in the Wheelhouse knew our evening drinks. Now that is service.

Cabin Review


Cabin BE

The cabin was aft and we felt the rocking and rolling when the seas were rough. Our cabin was kept immaculate by Leo our cabin steward. The cabin and shower were small.

Port Reviews


Took Princess' transfers from the airport. On our way to the port, our driver pointed out the sights and history of Vancouver.


Great bus driver Bobby who showed us the sights.


Since we had to tender in, there were problems which delayed our getting on a tender. We had to wait an hour to get off. Going back was the same problem. We had to wait at the pier at least 45 minutes. Very disappointing.


Can't remember if I read that the luau was on the beach. We came dressed and it calls for very casual attire. If casual attire and that it is on the beach is not in the ad, it should be.


We should have been told that in Pearl Harbor you cannot take a pocketbook. We wished the memorial would have been opened, but a very moving experience.


A great day to relax by the pools and have tropical drinks and food.
