Too many passengers &/or too few experienced crew

Review for Koningsdam to Pacific Coastal

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

After having itineraries to Istanbul changed two years in a row, we had ‘some’ cruise credit expiring. The pacific coast cruise seemed like a remedy & we’ve never been on the Koningsdam. Perhaps the larger ship just isn’t for us. The crew seemed to be training while this ship sailed which resulted in inefficiency. Particularly popular food items frequently became unavailable. Long lines & ...

Not the experience you would expect from the past.

So we are on a California Coast cruise. Neptune Suite. Have not been on a HAL for 3 years. A lot has changed. New rooms and refreshed ship. That’s nice. No crowded on deck initial safety muster drill. Replaced by scanning your room card at your muster stations. Easier. If you do the Neptune Suite expecting the usual priority boarding, disembarkation, usual exclusive perks, full food selection of a ...

We lost 2 cruises due to Covid and this was our choice to use our FFC. Embarkation was a mess. We were delayed one hour in the sun, on the pier in San Diego, several passengers were affected by the heat and required the assistance of others in line, there was no Holland America presence to offer them assistance. We found the crew to be pleasant and friendly. Menu items in the main dining ...

This was my first time to cruise with Princess. I had a good impression about the cruise. The foods were so delicious and plenty of choices. The decorated deserts were so beautiful and of course it tasted so yummy. I really recommend everyone must try a vacation with princess cruise. I do not eat breakfast often but on this cruise I never skipped breakfast. They have so much foods to eat. The ...

Great Pacific Coastal 5 Day Cruise

Review for Radiance of the Seas to Pacific Coastal

We chose this cruise due to the departure port (Vancouver) for a quick getaway. Vancouver to LA (stops in Astoria, Santa Barbara, San Diego). Weather in Vancouver was perfect for sail-away, and it's always great fun to leave under the Lion's Gate Bridge. The seas were like glass the entire cruise. The ship seemed in great shape, and the crew was by far the friendliest of any large cruise ...

Great to be cruising again

This was our careful return to cruising after a 3-year pandemic hiatus. While both fully vaccinated, we were determined to exercise prudence and avoid crowds. We used Westjet credits from cancelled flights and traveled from Toronto to Vancouver, with pre-cruise stay at the Exchange hotel, 3 blocks from the terminal. We were very satisfied with this property. Dinner was at the Cactus Club Café ...

Terrible cruise with Spring Breakers and Shame on RCCL for not handling ADA issues well.

I chose this itinerary because I was on a B2B2B. I boarded the Radiance on 9/23 for the 11 night Hawaii and stayed on 10/4 for the 2nd Hawaiian cruise and decided to stay on for this 10/15 Pacific Coast cruise. The first two cruises were unremarkable while this last leg was remarkably bad. It coincided with spring break and there were too many unsupervised, unruly kids. I had remained in ...

Discovery Princess, a fine ship to return to cruising

After 3 years finally a return to cruising and Discovery Princess didn't disappoint. Overall an excellent cruise with a few minor blips but that is to be expected. Embarkation: We were in the green lane and had an 11:30 boarding time and had no problems getting on the ship. We were probably on board by 11:45. Dining: We ate in the Ketchikan dining room and the food there was ...

ROYAL Princess - not quite up to "Royal Class" expectation

Review for Royal Princess to Pacific Coastal

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We have sailed over 300 days on Princess ships and chose to take this as the Royal Princess is a "Royal Class Princess ship" sailing out of San Francisco. No question it is a beautiful ship, spotlessly clean. We had had earlier experience in 2022 on Regal Princess in Europe and expected the same standard on the ROYAL Princess. To our complete and utter dismay we were in for a huge disappointment ...

An 'add-on' to the 14 Day Alaska itinerary

Review for Noordam to Pacific Coastal

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

We booked the 6 Day Wine Country & Pacific Northwest Cruise on Noordam (Neptune Suite 7081) immediately following the 14-Day Great Alaskan Explorer which we took in Noordam’s Neptune Suite 7088. One plus of this cruise, it allowed us (as US citizens) to avoid flying on an "international flight" - flying out of San Diego rather than Vancouver. Originally, we had booked these two cruises in an ...
