We booked this with 9 family members to celebrate Thanksgiving hoping for a stress free holiday. what we got was 4000 people on the ship, Long lines for everything and poor service' Dining: We were forced to book 7:10 before we left on the cruise asw nothing early was available. Only one dining room for reservations. The other two was a free for all.Dinner took two hours with no time for ...

We have taken many Princess cruises before and enjoyed all of them! We are now on the Grand Princess with a few more days till we return to Melbourne Medallion set up confusing . We got it partly set up and decided they could complete the process at the check in. It seems we had actually finished it Check in was chaotic! It was delayed due to needed extra Covid clean. Well meaning guides ...

Tired old ship. Not particularly inspiring. Frustrating online services and administration.

Apologies for the lengthy diatribe but context is all. Booked for this trip two years ago but was cancelled due to covid. Had the option for refund, cruise credit or go on same trip Melb to Melb on the 4th of November. Chose to go on same trip as birthday was on 3rd November. A choice we came to regret bitterly. Should have opted for cruise credit. Today’s date is Monday the "14th ...

The worst Princess cruise ever

Post Covid we missed cruising after 30 plus cruises with a bit more than half with our preferred cruise company Princess. We did a short cruise in Queensland on the Coral in late June and making allowances for post-Covid adjustments the cruise was overall a good enjoyable experience. We also had credits from Covid cancellations to use. Now the Grand (far-from-grand) experience. Pre ...

Worst ever cruise

Have been on 19 cruise with Princess but this the worst ever. Besides the Covid which hubby got, and we do not blame them as a lot of protocols but could do better. The weather, we know beyond their control, missed three ports, but compensated. The real issue was the lack of honest communications. Got to Melbourne finally after three changes to date and change to itinerary. Meant people who had ...

We saw this was available and matched up with our planned cruise so booked on the spur of the moment. We managed to get the same cabin however we were upgraded to a mini suite at the last minute for this short time. Getting onto the ship was easy in Sydney, the train takes you directly from the airport to Circular Quay where the ship docks. Smooth boarding. COVID safe, masks inside at all times ...

First cruise since Pandemic. First cruise with Princess. Boarding at OPT, Sydney extremely efficient. Despite being lowest level of loyalty, on board within 15mins and rooms were ready at 12.45. Guarantee balcony cabin. Assigned A632 AFT cabin on Aloha deck. Cabin very nice. Great view from balcony. Queen bed extremely comfy. Plenty of space. Desk & chair but no couch. Balcony had two ...

Well, we had our second cruise on Coral Princess and our third. (don't worry the 2 cruises totalled 5 nights) We were hoping to see some improvements to our last trip in August. However, it was ground hog day. Still couldn't book a specialty restaurant as they were booked out way in advance. On the August cruise the pools were heated to a nice temperature but on this one they were freezing. ...

Being my first cruise post covid lock down, and our very first princess cruise, I had very high expectations. I have only previously sailed with Royal Caribbean and found the 12 night Queensland cruise and its ports on offer from princess very appealing. Once we boarded the Coral princess the high standards of its crew started to show. The crew were always very happy to see and greet you as ...

We originally booked this cruise to have a break from work as my husband and I are self-employed. You can't help but relax on this beautiful ship. However, my head agency (I'm a travel agent), made this cruise our conference cruise. So this worked in really well for me. The crew on the ship are so happy to be back. They were so welcoming and nothing was a problem. They would all say "Hello" as ...
