Beautiful ship, but the Medallion app was a concern

Review for Discovery Princess to Mexican Riviera

We had cruised earlier this year on Majestic Princess (a sister Royal-Class ship to Discovery) and loved the experience. But as with Majestic, we had some issues, many related to the Medallion app (note: the actual Medallion itself worked flawlessly). Medallion app- absolutely useless on embarkation day. 1 - it removed us from the "green lane" when we arrived at the port. We then closed ...

Background Information This was our 17th Princess cruise (26th overall for me) and our 3rd on Discovery. We had originally been booked on the 2/26/22 "Love Boat" cruise on Majestic Princess which was rescheduled by Princess due to Covid. This was our 3rd time doing a Mexican Riviera itinerary. This was our first time doing an official theme cruise. Travel to Embarkation Port We flew ...

DISCOVERY PRINCESS and the dumbing down of Princess Cruises

Back in 2015, my wife and I took a 10 night repositioning cruise from New York to Ft. Lauderdale on REGAL PRINCESS. Despite the ship having a few quirks, we had an amazing time. Service, food and entertainment were pretty much top-notch. All of this made us really look forward to sailing on DISCOVERY PRINCESS. First of all, like the REGAL, DISCOVERY is stunning. The ship is absolutely ...

I'm going to preface this review with a little of our cruising history. My husband and I are very experienced cruisers with 62 cruises since 2005. We've cruised with Princess several times, along with Carnival, Holland America, Celebrity, MSC and, our favorite, Norwegian. Out of those cruises, we'd rate this cruise (with #1 as fantastic and #62 as horrible) as number 55 and that's being ...

disappointing

Ship Itinerary, Food, entertainment and activities has left ti me second thoughts about cruising in the future. First Cruise since Covid, only good thing was it had a challenged new crew which did their best to make it pleasant. Food was a repeat of the last day and same in all the restaurant's, you had no choice of menu change. Buffet so small with a very low standard of selection and tase. ...

Back in service after 2+ years

We were aboard the first Sapphire Princess cruise (10 days R/T LA to Mexico) after she was out of service for 2+ years. Here's what I found: This was truly a shakedown cruise. Minor "technical" issues such as elevators out of service, A/C problems, sound system issues, were pretty frequent. Ship is pretty clean. At least some percentage of the staff has been aboard since March working ...

We were somewhat disappointed with this cruise. The ship itself is showing it's age. It's dated and needs an overhaul. Generally, we expected more food, more selection and better quality. While a few of the meals were superb i.e. in the specialty restaurants, overall we were disappointed. Only certain restaurants were open only during specific times i.e. at lunch. We didn't get to eat in them ...

We cruise using a Club Class mini suite and It is wonderful. The room was clean, well furnished with a good sixed balcony, tub, and shower, All of the crew and staff that we interacted with were friendly, knowledgably, and professional. The cruise itself took us to 4 countries and four very beautiful places. My wife and I love western Caribbean cruises and Princess knows how to do them right. ...

Love the medallion

Overall the three of us had a great cruise on the Caribbean Princess through the Western Caribbean. We enjoyed our ports and stops, our mini suite and the food and service. I really like the medallion over using a card you have to swipe. Our tween met a lot of kids at the camp and enjoyed the pool. The food was really tasty whether it was the sit down restaurant, buffet or poolside. We liked our ...

We chose Caribbean Princess to enjoy the western Caribbean; we chose or cruise in April and so glad! The ship was ready to take us away and forget about the last couple years of staycations, for a week- the staff was attentive and took care of anything we requested. Our dinners were delicious, the food offered at the specialty restaurants-superb, Horizon Court-good choices available at all ...
