Chose the cruise to see the leaves changing in new england and to relax. Seems like we had the “B” team on the cruise....there was a noro virus outbreak on the cruise prior to ours, so boarding was delayed for the ship to be sanitized...when we got to our cabin we found someones 1/2 drunk sprite in our mini fridge and their shampoo cap on the shower floor...clearly our bathroom and fridge wasn't cleaned, much less sanitized between cruises. The food other than the Santini italian place was very bland...tasted like cardboard. It was an 11 day cruise... 1 of the 2 driers on our level was broken the whole time and our toilet wasn't cleaned after the initial cleaning( that we had to ask for...). The entertainment was disappointing compared to celebrity cruises. Actually everything paled in comparison to our Celebrity cruise experiences... oh well, live and learn...no more princess for us Read Less

We chose this cruise for the itinerary, After first day I was injured and not able to return to ship, due to being hospitalized for 4 days. No one from Princess has yet to inquire what happened to us, or where we were. So much for checking in and out with the new Medalion system. They had our phone # do they not care about their passengers? It's been 2 weeks. Yet they were happy to charge my credit card.i called Princess from my hospital bed, but was put on hold and then hung up on. Port authority was able to get our belongings fedexed to the hospital, and asked them to cancel our shore excursions for St Johns, but that didn't happen either. Since we arrived home I have received several how was your cruise surveys, and here are some future cruises you can chose from. I did send them an email but have had no reply, so much for being Elite. Read Less

We chose a fall cruise to celebrate my landmark birthday and to see the fall colors. We spent two nights in NYC (Columbus Day weekend) before getting on the ship. We were fine our first two ports, but then a Nor'Easter storm landed us in Boston and lost us two ports by the time the weather cleared. You really did not want to leave the ship and explore as they kept changing the time we would depart. Bar Harbor and Saint John were casualties, and we were most disappointed to miss Acadia National Park. I understand it was for our safety and they did give us a little discount on a future cruise, but I had read on the boards they miss Bar Harbor about 50% of the time. Our tour company (not Princess) told us they canceled our tour long before Princess admitted we were not going there, our guide knew they had closed the port. The other ports were fine, really liked Newport Beach. Quebec City was lovely, very glad we added two days on after the cruise. Halifax was also nice, as was Charlottetown. Sydney was just okay. The outer decks were cold and windy, I missed not being able to utilize the outside of the ship. I don't think I'd cruise this late in the year again. The colors were also muted this year and the further north we went the colder it got. This was the last sailing before they left Quebec and headed down toward the Florida/Caribbean runs. We were on Deck 10 and it was fine, see cabin review. There is only one laundromat per floor, two washers and two dryers, and it was competitive! Would be nice to have more than that for all those cabins. Food was okay, good not great. Some things were very well done, and some were just mass prepared and mundane. We found the martini bar where they knew how to mix a drink, and got our cocktails from them each evening (Crooners Bar). We splurged on the Crown Grill one night. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!! It was one of our worst meals. They tried to sit us near the host stand/kitchen, and when we asked to be moved, the host muttered a comment which was very unprofessional. They messed up my husband's drink, and his meal as well. The waiter was very kind, but forgot the mint jelly for my lamb chops, I did not realize it until I saw someone else served and by then it was too late. We come from a town with great steakhouses and this was nowhere near the quality. My lamb chops were small, not a nice chop, and my husband's steak was tough and poor quality. We chose a regular seating for our other meals, and the waiters grew to know us and it was a pleasure to dine each evening. We ate breakfast and lunch in the restaurants most of the time, not buffet lovers. There had been a norovirus on the cruise before us, so they were very careful with hygiene on this cruise, the first few days in you could not even salt your own food and they served you from the buffet. The entertainment was mostly lame, one magician was wonderful, and one night we could not get in to see a different show (piano-comedy I think) because it was too full. They still offer Zumba, which was fun, I also used the fitness center one morning. I was given a $50 spa credit, so it made my service affordable. Otherwise the prices they charge are outrageous, $138 for a manicure/pedicure as an example.(Plus tip.) We took one tour with Princess to see Peggy's Cove and the Titanic graves, and it was well done. The rest of the time we did our own thing, as we prefer to explore on our own. This was a somewhat older crowd, we were amazed at the scooters parked under the stairs one night, but people were mostly friendly and we did see a few younger people and even a few children, but not the norm. There was a bar at the top of the ship in the back, Skywalkers. They seemed to use this for Elite functions a few times, they also had a special line in the dining room for club class. We were asked to leave Skywalkers early one evening as they had to ready it for a function. The whole ship should be accessible for all. Met the captain, very nice and approachable, a few stiffs at the front desk but overall the staff goes out of their way and works very hard. Our steward was a doll, as were our dining waiters. Would I cruise Princess again? Possibly. We're taking our first Viking ocean cruise next year so it will be interesting to see the difference. Read Less

This cruise is not my favourite itinerary but we did want to see the East Coast, especially New York and Quebec and both were fabulous. Could not get into Bar Harbor or St. John due to rough seas. I would have rather gone in September for better weather. The staff were all awesome except for our room steward who was not that great. We had an accessible room and it was fabulously large as was the bathroom. Unfortunately, the bathroom smelled like a urinal and it was not able to be rectified. Our embarkation and disembarkation were seamless. The medallion worked great. The ship's public areas were nice but not enough seating inside for those days at sea. Too cold to sit outside. My biggest disappointment was the food. It was adequate but only very average. The waiters and the maitre'd were wonderful. Our next cruise is with Celebrity around the horn in South America!

My Husband & I had never been to the East Coast and I was excited to see the fall colors. We are both history buffs and I wanted to explore the history of this region. Our room was excellent and my favorite which is the last balcony on floor 14 as the balcony is a bit larger and the view is better for me. Our room Stuart was excellent. The bed and pillows were very nice. Room service in the morning was very good but the menue is very limited. A nice pot of coffee is the most important and it was always prompt and hot. I like smaller ships but thought I would try a ship with 3000 people to see if things ran smoothly. Well EVERYTHING was crowded and a hastle. The Buffet was a nightmare! No matter what time we went between 5PM and 8PM the seating was so crowded you would wander around with plates of food looking for a place to sit. There was a virus outbreak so you could not serve yourself and all the waitstaff was serving buffet items. There was no one on the floor to get you water or coffee and you could not go near the beverage area! One time I ran down to my room to get water for my meal! It was so irritating. Why dont they seat you and get your drink order, reserve the table, then send you to the buffet? I tried to make reservations at the specialty restaurants but everything was full. I was told to come on by and see if someone did not show up for their reservation. This was for the Anytime Dining Room too! Soooo many people. I love the production shows so the 1st show I went about 20 minutes early and barely got a seat with my husband. Next production show I went 30 minutes early with the same results. The last show I went 1 hour early and got good seats. In all the shows there were people standing along the side of the theater during the entire production. This made me most uncomfortable. What if there were a fire - yikes. WAY TOO MANY PEOPLE! The excursions are usually good and well organized. Well not this time. The 1st port (Newport) we were to be tendered to shore. This is usually not a problem as we meet at a location and our entire tour is tendered togather and in plenty of time for the tour. This time we were left on our own to compete with the rest of our 3000 closest friends to get to shore on time. We were in the loby at 10 AM and did not get to shore until 12:15 - A WHOLE HOUR LATE FOR OUR TOUR!! WTH! The Excursion Staff said OOPS! Refund. REFUND! By the time I got to shore I had no time to book another tour to see the Mansions I was looking forward to. The Excursion Staff suggested I could shop. SHOP! I can do that at home! We had to skip two ports due to the weather (so again there were no reservations for the Dining Rooms or the Specialty Resteraunts and I was stuck at the buffet again!). We were offered a 20% discount on a future cruise, and altho this is a nice touch it could have been more. Especially becasue of this Norovirus thing. So other than not getting into many of the shows in the Princess Theater and not getting to eat at any of the good restaurants this cruise wasn't too bad. I advise you to make reservation for all resteraunts prior to your cruise. Make reservations for your dining the day you arrive When you are on one of these Ships with so many people! Also missing 2 ports was especially disappointing (especially since I feel I missed the Newport port also). I feel I need a "do over". Maybe I will start shopping for another East Coast Trip -- with Princess???? I do not know. Let me get over this disappointment befor I make that commitment. I hear Viking river cruise on the Hudson is great and they have small ships and don't nickel and dime me to death. Hummmmm... Read Less

We have not been on Princess for about 8 years and decided to do the Canada New England itinerary on the Caribbean Princess. She is definitely not the right ship to do that itinerary. It was cold and the decks were unusable which led to overcrowding inside. If the ship had had a covered pool at least we would have been able to spend some time outside. When we joined the ship we were delayed in New York for several hours as they were doing extra cleaning for Norwalk. We were under Norwalk protocol for several days - we found out when we got on board that they had had Norwalk for several weeks and hadn't been able to control it. There were many gaps in the protocol (allowing people to handle condiments at the hamburger and pizza bars and the paid coffee bar). Most annoying was the lack of seats for the show. There were 3019 people on board. The theatre only held 848 people and there were only two performances of any show - so 1696 could see it. If you weren't in the theatre at least an hour before the show started you were not going too get a seat. With the deck unusable there weren't a lot of entertainment options. Tried to talk to the front desk about it - they didn't care, left a note for the cruise director - he never got back to me, left a message on Princess' Facebook page - they told me to contact the front desk (which I already had), emailed Princess Customer service a week ago - haven't heard from them. We spent an extra day in Boston and missed Bar Harbor and St John and Princess offered us a 20% credit on a future cruise - so we have to buy another cruise to get any compensation. Definitely not good enough. The food was okay - but as we haven't been on Princess for 8 years we saw a definite deterioration in the quality of food offered in the dining room. The steak has been removed from the "always available" menu and replaced with a hamburger, there was chili on the dinner menu in the main dining room! All in all a disappointing cruise for many reasons. Read Less

We have been to many of the stops on this cruise, but the price was right and we have wanted to see the fall colors. Plus it gave us a chance to see the Atlantic Provinces of PEI and Nova Scotia. The colors did not disappoint although we missed Bar Harbor and St. John due to a storm that blew in while we were in port in Boston. We did none of the Princess offered tours (I'm just not into herding cats on busloads of people). The ship itself was quite nice. A recent refurbishment, plus the addition of the Medallion system made the sea days very enjoyable. It is a large ship and things can get quite crowded when it is full, but we always seemed to find a place for a quiet interlude if we wanted to. Princess has been striving to produce some new entertainment shows and we could see that paying off in the shows on this cruise. Let's just hope they do enough of them we don't hit too many repeats when we cruise again next year on another ship. The food was much better this cruise compared to our last Princess cruise to Hawaii in March 2018. The variety of dishes were good, the food delivered hot, and cooked to order. Read Less

We took this cruise because we wanted to see Fall foliage, enjoy some cool weather and visit a part of the country we hadn’t yet visited. The ship went to great measures to avoid a repeat of an apparent increase in the level of GI outbreak they experienced on the previous cruise. Crew was constantly wiping down, and no passengers were allowed to handle buffet serving utensils for nearly four We had to endure four long sea days due to cancellation of two port calls caused by high winds up to 95 KPH. Very disappointing. We were only offered 20% discount on a future cruise as compensation. Saw very little fall foliage color change until our departure home out of Montreal. We took no excursions, as they didn’t look very interesting and were VERY pricey. The onshore taxi tours available were much less expensive. Highlights were the Newport mansions from the “Gatsby” era and the Marine museum in Halifax. The port cities themselves were pretty dull. Very modern buildings, lots of museums and old cathedrals. The dining room and buffet food was very underwhelming. Carved offerings, deserts, breads and pastries, were lousy. Lots of casseroles (perhaps re-purposing?). Minimal veggies. The Indian food was okay. First cruise I’ve gained NO weight! Buffets and seating areas were very crowded, and a lot of walking involved to find everything. The Crown Grille was the exception; outstanding food and service! The outdoor deck ice cream and coffee bar had the best soft-serve ice cream I’ve had. Hot dogs and pizza by the pool were good, but the burgers were mushy. The chili they use is NOT chili. Very limited boutique on-board shopping with very small selection. The biggest surprise was the entertainment! Best we’ve experienced on a cruise! All the performers were so highly experienced, multi-talented, professional and gifted! Every show was worth attending, even more than once! Great variety of superb entertainers! The Medallion system used by Princess is really innovative and worked well. Great ease of room entry, ordering drinks, gaming, embarking/disembarking, locating your fellow travelers, chatting, etc. The internet was the best we’ve found on a cruise. Easy to connect, pretty fast and great value for unlimited use of four devices. The barista style coffee drink package was a very good deal. Very limited live TV in cabin, but good movie choices. The shower was smaller than those found in a travel trailer. Don’t drop the soap! The new beds are wonderful! The cabin steward we were assigned was excellent and very friendly. Most of the rest of the crew always seemed like they were pissed off about something. Nice outdoor movies, but usually too cold and wet to enjoy. Not much else going on outdoors this time of year. The hot tubs were just lukewarm, so no one used them. There were no kids on board other than a few babies. Lots of seniors like us. Many walkers, wheel chairs and scooters on board that seemed to get around without too much difficulty. Bottom line, this cruise was several notches down from the last Princess cruise we took in 2005. But then so were the last Norwegian, Royal Caribbean and Holland America cruises we’ve taken in recent years. It seems great food and service has moved to the higher end cruise lines. Everything on the cheaper lines seems more geared toward families and individuals wanting to consume mass quantities with little discretion toward quality. Read Less

First cruise on Princess although we've sailed on other lines.We chose this cruise for ports of call and that there was only one day at sea. This was a medallion class ship although our medallions never worked, and although promised, were never replaced. Pros: Room was clean with good closet space. Room steward was great Project 5 band was awesome Ship was updated and o.k. Embarking and disembarking was pretty smooth except for the medallion issue. Cons: Shipboard entertainment and activities were boring and catered to the over 70 crowd. Food in Main dining was hit or miss, more misses. Service was slow. Staff not too friendly. Menu was not inspiring. Buffet was pretty good although as time went on, there were too many leftovers and stale desserts offered. Lack of information about norovirus spreading. We couldn't touch food utensils in the buffet and this slowed everything down. Interestingly the cleanliness in the buffet area lacked even though they were worried about spreading viruses. Time in ports of call was shorter than advertised. We got to Quebec City, late because of reduced speed for whales, however, that was known by staff so far in advance that it shouldn't have been a problem. Day at Sea lacked interesting activities. They were similar to port days. Movies were outdoors despite the weather and blankets and cushions only came out in the evenings, not during cold afternoon movies. Cruise line touted the bed comfort but they were not comfortable. Interior cabin door was so much smaller than the opening that all the hallway light flooded the room-TERRIBLY Read Less

My wife and I wanted to do a different cruise this year so we decided on the New England to Quebec cruise. After looking at several cruise lines we choose Princess because of the itinerary and the reputation. We arrived 2 days early in New York and stayed in Brooklyn not far from the cruise terminal which worked out great, as we could drop our bags in the morning and then take the NYC Ferry to NYC and back to the terminal. Embarkation was smooth and so easy with the Medallions. Our room was nice, the bathrooms are what you can expect on most ships. The bed was a bit short. Comfortable but short. Our steward was very nice and did a great job. He kept the room clean and always had ice in the fridge. Our only real room glitch was we ordered some items to be in the room on arrival to the room but they were not there. We ordered robes to be in the room and I ordered a Stanley Bear to be in the room. The robes did not show up till a full day or more later and I had to go get the Bear at the shop, which kinda killed the surprise. Oh well. We went to the Steakhouse on the first night and it was lovely. Wonderful food and attentive staff. We used the buffet for breakfast a few times, had the Ernesto Burger by the pool, went to anytime dining, went to tea in the dining room twice and had our daily coffee at the International Cafe. The buffet was your average buffet. The food was good and tasty, I would have liked to see more fruit, including bananas. Due to a gastro-intestinal issue on the previous cruise we could not handle the salt and pepper which made seasoning eggs and such a pain. We ended up buying salt/pepper shakers on an excursion as well as some hot sauce and took it to the buffet and morning dining room. The international cafe and the coffee card were perfect for us in the AM. and the egg muffin sandwich was great for early excursions or on debarkation. Loved the International Cafe. The Ernesto burger was very good indeed. Well worth the 15 minute wait. The anytime dining was good. The food was on par with other cruise lines I have been on. Service was a bit slow but not terribly so until the last 3 days and it seemed to get slower and slower. We did have a couple of mix ups at dinner. Like not having the curry sauce on a dish with curry sauce and not getting a appetizer portion of some pasta even though it was ordered. I eat too much on cruises so that last one is not a real issue. The desserts were great especially the chocolate items. I would have like to see more vegetables though. The itinerary was action packed. 9 stops in 10 days. All of them were excellent and offered something for every one. We planned our own excursions or simply walked around town. there was plenty of time a each to enjoy the port. I had a couple of disappointments with the overall experience which makes me think that maybe Princess is not for me. 1. On board activities often overlapped so I could not get to all the things I liked. for instance the photo classes and the go pro classes were at the same time or overlapped so i could not do both. I did as much of the trivia challenges as I could but many were so tight on the schedule I could not do them all. 2. I love the medallion. It made getting off and on the ship a breeze and getting into the state room easy. Paying for stuff was also easy. The Apps were not as flawless. there is a disconnect between the website the apps and the written items on the ship. Also the staff does not understand the app or what they can do so sometimes I ended up know more than the staff . I felt like a beta tester and that the apps were a little rushed to get out. Overall I really did enjoy the cruise and the ship. I just don't feel that Princess is the right line for me at this time. Read Less

We had been planning with some friends of doing a New England Fall colors tour for more than a year and selected this cruise due to (1) reasonable cost and (2) itinerary and (3) prior experience with Princess. We have always enjoyed Princess for it's service, dependable food, and moderate pricing. Some highlights of our cruise: A. We were a bit startled when we received an email about a day before boarding (NYC) informing us that we would be boarding late due to a virus outbreak on the previous cruise. This left us a bit apprehensive but it turned out well because very few people got sick on our week. One major reason for this was Princess went to extraordinary lengths making sure passengers didn't touch food in the buffet area and that we all washed and sanitized our hands before eating or socializing with other passengers (I've never washed my hands so much in my life!) All in all, the results were worth it though. B. Leaving from New York City harbor at sunset is a great experience! Went close to the Statue of Liberty and a great view of Manhattan sailing away. This was partly due to great weather on most of our trip (only the last several days in Canada were a bit rainy and cool). C. The itinerary was, for the most part, great - Newport, Boston, Bar Harbor, Halifax, St. John (NB) and Quebec City were spectacular. The only stop that didn't rock our boat, so to speak, was Sydney. While the tour of Alexander Graham Bell's museum was extremely interesting, we're not sure a full day stop in Sydney was warranted. All the other stops were very good - our favorites included Newport, Boston, Bay Harbor, Halifax, and Quebec City. Princess handled all of our shore excursions and did a good job. We always feel they tend to be a bit "pricey" on excursions (compared to doing them yourselves) but they handled everything well. The ship was in good shape and the crew handled it well - we have cruised on this "class" Princess before but this was the first one that had the higher capacity (about 3,000 passengers). It seemed a bit crowded at times (especially in the buffet and the Princess Theater) but overall they handled it well. On the entertainment, the production (or what we refer to as "Broadway") shows were outstanding (Princess keeps getting better on entertainment). The other shows (cabaret singer and a cello/vocal duo) were also very good and the magician they had on board was the best we've every seen. Surprisingly, for late September/early October, we didn't see as much "color" as we would have expected until we got to Quebec. There it was very good. Overall, though it was a great cruise which we would do again. Read Less

Being a Travel Advisor, I wanted to experience the Medallion Concept. It was wonderful. So easy to get into your stateroom, by just walking up to it. Also great to keep in contact with family members. The wi-fi was wonderful. Better than any cruise we have taken before I also had this cruise on my bucket list and it did not disappoint. My favoite ports were Boston,Charlotte Town, and Quebec. It is a must to get to the Princess Theater show room in advance or else you will not get a seat. The staff was very friendly and food choices were very good. In the buffet area, they have the greatest system for egg dishes. They give you a buzzer that signals when your eggs are ready to pick up. They were always hot and cooked to perfection. Great service with choices for my friend with a gluten free diet. There was an issue before our cruise that required special sanitation, so while onboard, we were not able to use the salt and pepper shakers on our own. The staff did it for us at the table. It was alittle annoying but kept us all well. All in all it was a great cruise. Read Less

I have been fighting a death diagnosis for 2 years and I gave this to my husband to thank him for his love and support before heading back to treatment. From the day prior this was a nightmare. Norwal virus outbreak on previous cruise delayed our departure. When we finally got on ship it was chaos. No one knew what the other was doing. Food was truly inedible. Not once did I have a hot meal served. Many guests complained about this decline with Princess. No restaurants were open on port days so you were at the mercy of the virus plagued buffet. Room service food was worse than taking a chance on the virus. No eggs.. only eggbeaters. Princess Theater only holds 1000 guests. Only 2 shows were offered per night. 1600 guests didn’t get to see shows EVERY night as shows changed dailyWere . 3 Excursions that we purchased were not what we got. Were supposed to spend time at the Kennedy Library. Bus was 30 minutes late. Had 45 minutes to see it. Then spent 3 hours touring the city on a bus - we did not want or purchase it. There would have been some salvation if we hit the historic parts but it was a trip down memory lane for our guide. In Bar Harbor we bought a 2 hour carriage ride through the Park. Again we spent an additional hour on a bus ride and only a one hour carriage ride. Everyone on that tour was upset. Our tour to the Titanic Gravesites- our Guide did not wait for us all to get off the bus before heading there. A portion of us were running to try to catch up but never did. We missed the entire part of that. Read Less

We chose this cruise from vacations to go for a last minute trip. The price was really great and the destination was northeast and Canada. Embarking was super but the room was disappointing. Not for location, but for cleanliness. The rug in the room was old, stained and dirty. We did not bring slippers because we called princess earlier and the rep said all we had to do was ask. Well that proved to be futile, I emailed Princess during the trip to complain and we finally got them day 3. Meanwhile, I had lined the floor with pool towels. Day 4 we asked for our room cleaned. The steward (who we pre tipped in cash although we did opt to pay gratuities) made up our bed in the same sheets, they were wrinkled with hair in them. The bathroom had hair, the sink wasn't cleaned and the rug had not been vacuumed. I know because we removed the pool towels prior and some cookie crumbs were on the rug. They were still there. The soap on the sink was mashed into the pre formed counter top. There were tea ring stains on the desk. etc. The ship ran out of smoked salmon day 5. Even though they were in nova scotia! The hash browns are GREASY!! There was no lactose free food in the buffet, everything except cold cuts had milk, cream, cheese and butter. No dairy free desserts except jello. Later on, while we were in the disco, an employee entered our room without permission with our privacy notice on the door to bring us chocolate strawberries that neither of us could eat. All of our personal items were out in the room, our handbags, our jewelry, my computer was up and running, they entered and violated our privacy. Princess has changed from our 2 previous cruises with them. Floor supervisor was nasty. When customer service called to ask why we were not happy. She said she was sorry we did not appreciate the gift of strawberries.

My cousin and roommate, Joan Ruxton, wanted a cruise up the east coast of North America to see the fall colours. I said I'd like to join her, but I told her, "It has to be a Princess ship', because I had so enjoyed my 15 day Princess cruise to Hawaii. Highlights of this latest cruise: 1st. Just being on the ocean would have been more than enough, however, on Princess much more was available; 2nd.: The company around the table in the formal dining room could not have been better. Warm, interesting, convivial, charming people from all over the globe broke bread with me and my cousin and made the dinner times sparkle; 3rd.: The food was a m a z i n g; 4th.: Awesome onboard entertainment - truly exceptionally talented dancers and singers worthy of Hollywood, put their hearts, souls and enthusiasm to work for our enjoyment. The comic I saw was a delight, bringing members of the audience up to the stage to 'help' him make us laugh and laugh we all did! 5th.: Princess has a library! How great is that?! Whenever I wanted to just relax by myself, books were free and easily accessible; 6th.: Our cabin stewart was wonderful. Just so meticulous, reliable and friendly; Read Less

This was our 35th cruise and our first one on Princess in about ten years. We left from NY and stayed at the Brooklyn Bridge Marriott the night before embarkation. The hotel was great and everyone was friendly and helpful. My brother and his wife traveled with us on this Canada cruise. We arranged though the hotel to get a van to take us to the port about noon and boarded with a short wait. The ship looked fine and we had no issues with our balcony room. I don’t think we are as picky as some. However, the bathrooms was the smallest we have had in many years. Our room steward was quick to introduce himself and did a great job for us the entire 10 nights. We used room service a couple of times and it arrived earlier than our earliest requested time by ten minutes. We like that Celebrity calls when it is on the way. The breakfast menu was more of a continental breakfast, but the coffee was good & hot. We found the Buffett, Grill and the MDR food disappointing. I disagree with the review that said the food was like a Cracker Barrel, more like A Golden Coral buffet If your not familiar with Golden Coral they serve a lot of Buffett food but not of high quality. The speciality restaurants were pretty good especially the steakhouse. We ate at the steakhouse the first night (coupon book buy one get one free) and it was a disaster(service) but the second time was fine. The Italian restaurant was just OK. We had the drink package and were very disappointed in the wines by the glass available. The ones available were generally good like Decoy Chardonnay and Merlot. Mixed drinks were generally fine and well prepared. The bottled water for the drink package was small Kirkland bottles, yes Cosco water. No soft drinks in a can but fountain drinks only for the drink package. If your not not on the drink package you could get canned soft drinks and nicer bottled water. Pretty cheap on Princess! Entertainment was good but as other reviews noted you had to be in the theater at least 45 minutes prior to the show to get any seat. We do think Princess does better overall entertainment at lounges, main theater, etc. than most cruise lines we have been on lately. Overall service in dinning room and lounges was very good. We rarely had to wait for anytime dinning going about 6:30 or a little latter. Overall we had a good time but would probably not choose Princess for our next cruise due to food quality issue and not the being able to get a seat for the shows in the theater. Read Less

We were excited about a trip to Greenland with Princess. We had not sailed with Princess in a number of years, last trip was on the Star Princess from Italy to the Greek Isles. Princess has cut expenses in every category. The experience was very mediocre. Cabin very small, shower for midgets, food that tasted like it came from Cracker Barrel, waiting 2 1/2 hours to get a tender to shore, another hour to get back on board, no port talks, 1 hour pre arrival time to get a seat for the show in the theater, very little to do other then spend money at the casino or cheap gift shops. I could go on but this is certainly enough for you to reconsider booking with Princess. Most fellow passengers were very experienced travers and expressed the same concerns. The trip to Greenland was the draw. Good bye Princess, this was such a subpar experience I am not willing to take another chance with your Cruse Line. Read Less

I wanted to visit Greenland and since the ship was going right out of NYC near where I live, I thought it was an easy choice. I'd gotten an upgrade from obstructed to unobstructed view but they'd forgotten to mention that it was right above the forward gangplank so whenever we got to a port, we were woken very early. :( The ship was well maintained and comfortable. However, I have a number of complaints. 1) The food was only okay (even the specialty restaurant we tried was okay) and I think Princess needs to work on making the food more flavorful and their steaks less tough. 2) The entertainment was good (the last show was excellent) but we had to get to the theater an HOUR plus before the show just to get any seats. It was standing room only for the productions shows and we didn't even see one because of the crowding. They really need to have other things going on during the shows so that more people would have something else to do. 3) The tender situation in Greenland was awful. The two GL ports with tenders had hours long lines to get in and out. We waited 2 hours to get off the ship and about an hour to get back on in one port. The other GL port, Nanortilik, was worse. If you go, get off as soon as the ship docks early in the morning. That being said, Greenland did not disappoint. I was sooooo glad I went. It was gorgeous and the people friendly. 4) Back to the ship. There were NO port talks at all so except for the printout for each port, there was no way to get information as to what to do there. This was completely unacceptable especially since GL had very little info online anyway. 5) And don't even get me started on the excursions. I waited for months for the GL excursions to come up so I could book them but much as I checked, they never appeared on the Princess website. So by the time I got to the ship, everything was booked and there were waiting lists. Since I'd gotten frustrated 5-6 months before the cruise, I did book a trip with Viator in Nuuk on my own and I'm very glad I did because I'd have been very frustrated otherwise. 6) They are starting a new thing with medallions. I really didn't like them and found them creepy (your face came up on the room screen before you got into the room and other places, too - the privacy issues were a problem for me). Also they didn't work if you were ordering drinks since the bar staff had to take down your name and room number anyway. The not complaints The embarkation and disembarkation were very easy. The ship was lovely. The ports were great. Read Less

Greenland has always been on my bucket list and when Princess announced they were doing a round-trip from New York with three port stops in Greenland, the price was a little high but I signed up immediately. We did get a substantial price drop, at the expense of my husbands AIB package. We have sailed the Caribbean Princess several times, she is and older ship and she tends to show her age, but Princess is attempting to update he with the implementation of Medallion class in May this year. We utilized Princess EZ-Air from FLL to LGA, never again! LGA is under major construction and our Princess Transfer from the airport to the port took close to 3 hours, one hour to get out of the airport alone. Once at the port Medallion made check in a breeze. We visited Halifax and Sidney before heading to Greenland to visit Nuuk, Qaqortog and Nanortalik, with a stop in St. Johns NF on the way back. Princess offered limited excursions for all the Greenland stops and we were very disappointed that there were no enrichment lectures in regards to the ports. There was one lecturer on board who talked about Hollywood, Disney and film. The demographics of this cruise were mostly seniors who are elite Princess cruisers who are very demanding (as said by several crew members), we are also elite members but much younger then the average on this ship. While we heard that the production shows were excellent, we did not see them as they began to line up 1 1/2 hours before each show and the theater was always full when we arrived at the 1 hour mark, we refuse to go any earlier as we find it absurd to go any earlier. We were able to catch the simulcast of guest entertainers in the lounge and did enjoy most of these shows. There was a lack of evening entertainment, no deck party, no theme parties, guess they figured that most guests were in bed after the show. Ports: Halifax - We did a private excursion "Halifax Titanic Historical Tours with Paul McNeil". We found this small group excursion through our CC roll call. Paul was so knowledgeable of the history of Halifax and proud of his city and this showed through his narration through the whole tour, he also had photo's and videos that were shown on a large display in the front of the van. We were able to hit all the highlights of the city well before all the tour buses returned from Peggy's Cove. We visited two of the Titanic cemeteries with a drive by the third which no longer allows visitors, Paul was very respectful while viewing the sites, insisting we not walk on the graves. We also visited the Memorial to the Halifax Explosion, where he explained several hidden facts throughout. We finished off the tour with a stop for a fabulous lunch in a small uncrowded fishing village which served the best fish & chips we have every had. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking to get away from the crowds and tour buses. Sidney - we did a ship tour to the old Gaelic Village which we found very interesting. This is an interpretive village with several "players" who were in character for their era in time. We found it quite interesting the changes they went through over the years. After the tour returned we walked through town and enjoyed a local brew and some lobster poutine at a local pub. Greenland - Our ship stopped at three ports in Greenland, Nuuk, Qaqortog and Nanortalik all three were scheduled as tender ports, however at the last minute we were able to dock in Nuuk. Princess offered limited tours in all three ports and most were quite expensive for what they offered so we opted to walk all but Nanortalik on our own. My research showed that they all offered museums, churches and were quite walk-able on your own. In Nuuk we were off the ship early and able to get to the church, memorial and museum well before the tour buses from the ship dropped off. We enjoyed the beautiful city with it's quaint colorful houses. We walked the waterfront and climbed what appeared to be newly build stairs up the bluff. After we found a local brewery and enjoyed a local brew. Qaqortog was a tender port and did not offer much more than Nuuk, we visited the Museum which was much smaller than the one in Nuuk. Again we walked the town, enjoying the stone art carvings that were displayed throughout town, we visited the fish market and church before we went off the main road and found a path to the top of lookout that provided a great view of the ship in the bay, the town and a nearby lake. Our last stop was Nanortalik, this was also a tender port. We had an excursion so we were one of the first off, but we heard later that some without tours waited for almost 4 hours to tender off the ship. We booked our excursion through the ship as I could not find any private excursions, I felt the price was very over inflated when I booked it and still fell the same. We took a small boat (six people) to the glacier where we were able to walk on the rocks and had a shot of scotch over glacier ice. Our tour guide and boat driver were locals and provided us with a wealth of information about their small town of less than 1000 people. After our tour we walked through the small town and visited the museum before getting in line for the 2 1/2 hr wait to tender back to the ship. We felt that this small town was not prepared for the 3000+ people from our ship, although we were happy to donate to the church and school which seemed in need. St Johns, NF - Our last port, we booked a 2 hr harbor cruise with Iceberg Quest, while we did not see any icebergs or whales, we did see the lighthouses, caves and I spotted a puffin. We then leisurely walked through town, we stopped by St. John the Baptist Church, but it was Sunday and they were having services. We stopped by the YellowBelly Brewery and enjoyed a local brew before heading back to the ship. Upon our return to New York disembarkation was a breeze. We can now cross Greenland off our bucket list, but we consider it a one and done, we won't go back there is not much to see and do, excursions were few and over priced. We will however visit Halifax, Sidney and St. Johns as there is so much we did not get to see. Read Less

We received a Princess brochure which included Canadian Maritime Provinces and Greenland. It peaked our interest, particularly Greenland which is an unusual destination. We felt it would be an ideal place to visit before it shows up on more itineraries and gets overrun with "tourist" shops; jewelry stores and t shirt shops etc. The itinerary was 16 days, but only 6 ports, so a lot of sea days which are relaxing. We sailed on Caribbean Princess before and enjoyed the ship. Good weather and enjoyed the ports taking 2 Princess excursions in Canada (Halifax and Sydney). We opted for a Hop-on-off in St Johns which was excellent and inexpensive. Greenland tours were extremely expensive and limited so we decide to explore on our own and were pleased with that decision. Tendering at 2 Greenland ports was awful, taking over 2 hours or more. Princess did a dreadful job handling this and they have been to Greenland before so they should have planned better. Very interesting places and very glad we took the trip. Rustic. Almost like a glimpse into the past! Overall meals were very good but not great but we did opt for a few specialty restaurants and these were great. Princess buffet dining is OK for breakfast or lunch but not really as well organized as some other cruise lines. Entertainment was probably excellent however seating was far too limited because of the show times of 6:30 and 8:30pm wherein many people ate at 5pm and went to both shows. Really good music is lounges with something for everyone. Finally, this was a Medallion Class ship. Princess loves this concept but frankly it is much like the cruise card with more chances to buy drinks and gamble, and might be fun for kids. I didn't think much of it. Read Less

This review is being written by a husband with a scooter-bound wife. We chose this cruise for the Greenland destination. In general, we enjoyed the cruise with only a few minor issues. Note to handicapped cruisers: If you or your travelling companion are mobility impaired, understand from the outset that there are many activities you may not be able to do (e.g.; get in and out of a tender to go ashore). If you use an electric scooter to get around, the ship's carpeting will consume your scooter's battery charge at a prodigious rate - you will need to carry your battery charger with you. You will also find many spots on the ship will be a tight fit. These issues are not unique to this cruise, or for that matter, Princess - handicapped cruisers will find them on any cruise from any line. A little forethought will minimize the inconveniences. Now on to the review proper: Embarkation: We used Princess-arranged transportation and flew in on the embarkation day. I recommend other cruisers do the same, as once you get on your flight, getting you to the ship is guaranteed by the cruise line. That said, delays with getting all the luggage screened delayed the ship departure for about 2 hours. Disembarkation: Our disembarkation flight was arranged by Princess. Our originally scheduled disembarkation time was unreasonably close to our flight departure time, so I had it moved up. Our luggage did not come off with our disembarkation, causing a minor panic. In the end, we got our luggage and made our flight; we would not have done so had we kept our original disembarkation time. The Ship: We have been on the Caribbean Princess before. The ship was in good condition, clean, and everything worked. While on the subject of the ship, I took the Ultimate Ship Tour that covers the working of the ship. This tour is not heavily promoted and you can only sign up for it while on board, but it is well worth it. The Cabin: We had Rivera (deck 14) 312 - an interior handicapped accessible cabin which we got as it was the last handicapped accessible cabin available for this cruise. While we would have preferred an obstructed view cabin lower down, this cabin was good. I have two comments on the cabin: 1) the bathroom door was close to the closet, which made for fancy scooter maneuvering for my wife to get in and out of the bathroom, and 2) you only get 2 electrical outlets in the cabin. Both of them were by the desk, which meant we had to get an extension cord to allow the scooter to stay by the bed while charging. Dining: In general, we ate at the buffet, avoiding the dining rooms and upcharge restaurants. We found the quality and variety of food to be good, but sometimes getting a table near an electrical outlet was a problem (see the Note to Handicapped Cruisers above). A minor gripe at the buffet was that the carving station was frequently unstaffed. We did have two "pub lunches" - we found the food at the pub lunches to be authentic and well prepared. Entertainment and Activities: The challenge for seeing production shows in the Princess Theater was getting into the theater in the first place. You had to be in your seat at least an hour before the performance start. To Princess's credit, they scheduled extra performances so eventually everyone could see the shows. The shows themselves were of high quality. Also good was the magician (Michael Barron), who also did a demonstration on how to perform some simple tricks. As is true of any cruise line, many of the onboard activities involved trying to sell you things. I have mentioned the Ultimate Ship Tour showing the working of the ship; do take it. In lighter entertainment, the cruise director lampooned the elevator situation with a game called "Elevator Roulette". Service: We put in an extra shout out for our cabin steward Dexter Dineros for service above and beyond the call of sanity. Other service folks were equally nice and helpful. Ports and Shore Excursions: Since my wife is scooter bound, we were limited to bus tours in Canadian ports (Halifax, Sidney, and St. John's). These tours were excellent. Greenland is very hilly and was largely inaccessible for scooter-bound people like my wife. She did get off the ship and onto the pier at Nuuk, but to go any further would have involved a long hill climb. The ports we visited in Greenland were small, and our cruise ship essentially doubled the ports' population for the day. As for the tours themselves: Nuuk: I took a walking tour that started in a Greenlander's house, we then went to the center of town where our tour guide gave us maps of the city and turned us loose. Qaqortoq: This was a tender port, so my wife stayed on the ship. I took a walking tour of the town, and this tour guide stayed with us the whole time. This tour was nice. Nanortalik: This was a tender port. Unfortunately, my wife and I had developed colds and so stayed on the ship. We heard from other cruisers that the local elementary school had sent its students to the landing to practice their English with the cruisers. Would we go on this cruise again? Yes Read Less

This was truly the cruise of a lifetime as far as the destination is considered. Greenland did not disappoint for one minute. The weather on this voyage could not have been any more perfect. So much so that I wanted to book this cruise for next year, but will not push my luck and be thankful for the amazing time spent in Greenland and Canada. Let me just start by saying I am well aware that my experience will not be shared by everyone who sailed on this voyage, and for that be thankful. I had the opportunity to sail on the Caribbean Princess in the past 14 months. What a complete change from the first sailing on her. She is a very well appointed vessel, and the updates are well noted,all cosmetic. The change this time was an internal problem, which is harder to fix. Open hostility among staff was visible in several venues on board. In the Coral dining room there were open snide comments between headwaiters and their partners. One morning a loud yelling match over the order of a breakfast item. The passengers left the dining room as not to get involved. The food served in the Marketplace had one thing in common at the best of times, brown or any shade there of. Dinners in the dining room were not much better. How do you get brussel sprouts brown. We were told by a server that fresh veg was in short supply and in great demand on the ship. One evening a table mate sent his dinner back 5 times to get it passable. The waiter in this situation handled the situation with much grace and composure. We were told this was not an uncommon situation on board. Front desk was downright rude at some points, and did not really seem interested in caring. The Cruise Director was very glib and off putting at times. He really needs to have a little more under his belt in training from a more seasoned director. In so many ways Princess could have gotten this right but they missed the boat big time. The Caribbean Princess may have had a refurbishment in dry dock but most of the staff should have been too. Read Less

We decided to take this cruise to visit Greenland which we have never visited previously. Embarkation went smoothly and we were whisked aboard Caribbean Princess quickly with their new Medallion Class. Greenland was an amazing place. Fortunately, we had sunny days with high temperatures in the low 50s. My wife and I enjoyed touring the three ports and cities where we stopped in Greenland. The people were friendly and always greeted us with large smiles. Caribbean Princess' staff went above and beyond in all areas of service which you would expect on a cruise. Our cabin was terrific and kept ship shape by our outstanding Cabin Stewart. Dining on the Caribbean Princess was outstanding. The food was high quality and delicious and varied during the cruise. Entertainment was terrific and ranged from production shows, comics, singers,and instrumentalists throughout the cruise. I would recommend this cruise to anyone who wants to visit Greenland. My wife and I would definitely take this cruise again! Read Less

We left from NYC my home port and it intrigued me to go on a cruise which did not require a plane flight. The ports were in Nova Scotia, Greenland and Newfoundland, a very unique and interesting itinerary. We boarded the ship in record time, although the cruise was fully booked, there were no lines and we were able to access our room before noon. Our luggage was not quite as lucky as us, it arrived sometime during the 8:30 show. The entertainment was spectacular! The production shows were technologically advanced adding to the artistic scenery and effects. The musical performers hit all notes and the dancers stretched their bodies beyond limits. The other nights guest performers singers, comedians and a ventriloquist were talented and exceptional. The only issue was there was not enough seating in the theater. We found that we needed to go an hour early to get good seats. Activities on board were eclectic and appealed to a wide number of tastes. The only thing missing was a destination lecturer which the cruise director tried to make up by interviewing the ship's pilot who was from Greenland. The cruise director managed to add several matinee performances and a concert which hadn't been performed before by the cast. He went above and beyond to make the activities enjoyed by all. We had a large balcony which permitted us to have lounge chairs, this was lovely. Additionally our bed, bedding and pillows were all very comfortable. There was plenty of storage space, the only thing missing was a nice sitting area. Our cabin steward couldn't be more efficient. The cabin was made spotless twice a day and soap, lotion and paper products replenished. The dining experience was less desirable than any other component of ship life. The dining room decor and furniture are old and tattered, as are the menu covers and even some of the linens. The service is very uneven, some servers are extremely efficient while others required reminders to serve pepper or refill water glasses. Most are unaware of menu item components so when questioned they needed to run to the kitchen to ask. Sometimes never to return with an answer. There is plenty of food but the quality is poor. Everything is doused in heavy sauces or gravies, quite possibly to cover up the poor quality of the fish. My husband was happy with the beef and lobster, requesting no sauces before the preparation. The one item which was wonderful at all times was the dinner rolls. Lunchtime, the buffet had nice salad fixings and a large variety of hot foods. The staff kept the serving areas and the seating areas exceptionally clean. Overall we had a wonderful time and would recommend that you try this ship and line, keeping in mind that minus the rich sauces some of the entrees could be prepared well. Read Less
