A good time and great people.
"It was quite a trip however, with two people taken off for medical reasons by helicopter in the dark of night, a flood that left several rooms with inches of floating water, two small fires, one in the kitchen and one in the laundry and a three hour delay in arriving back in Vancouver.After the first one, I wasn't sure I would cruise with them again as I found the ship, the Emerald Princess that time, extremely crowded...."Read More

The Good (lots of it) and sadly the Bad

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Embarkation: VERY GOOD. We were on the ship within 25 minutes of dropping off our bags. Note for when sailing out of San Francisco, the port is off The Embarcadero and there was heavy traffic getting to the pier. We made the mistake of dropping off our luggage on the street a block south of the pier because of the traffic. If we had waited 5-10 more minutes, we could have dropped it off ...

No Aloha on this cruise.

We bid on an upgrade and were successful. Initially we were in a penthouse suite on Riviera deck. Room was too noisy to sleep so we requested a move. We were moved to Aloha deck at the back of the ship and unfortunately it was actually worse than the previous room. The guest service supervisor was rude and dismissive and told us we expected too much and should have spent more money on a better ...

Baseless Trepidation

Greetings from aboard the Crown Princess! We are on a 16-day cruise to Hawaii, RT San Francisco. I boarded the ship with great trepidation. The Cruise Critic comments about the ship and the itinerary caused me to think that perhaps we'd made a grave error in booking this cruise. However, that angst was put to rest the first day. While more traditional (vs. glitzy) in appearance, the ship ...

I chose this cruise because it was a good value for the money I paid for it. It was my 2nd time on Princess. I would cruise with this line again but it is not my favorite. The shore excursion to the Waimea Canyon in Kaua'i was awesome, as was the one to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park in Hilo which included a stop at the Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory. There were too many nights in which I ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Words to describe our first time on Princess: average, uninspired, meh, just ok. We usually cruise on Royal Caribbean or Norwegian, but since Crown Princess had a sailing out of SF during our ski week, we decided to try it. Going in, I knew it would be a smaller ship without the activities of an Oasis class RC ship. What I didn't expect was how average it all was. Nothing blew us away. We ...

We chose this cruise because we wanted a cruise longer than 7 days. We enjoy sea days and this one gave us 5 glorious days to relax. Embarkation was a mess as far as dropping off luggage, they appeared to only have 5 or 6 guys collecting luggage. Once we dropped our bags the rest was a breeze, basically walked through security and onboard. Our cabin was in a great location, we chose the Lido ...

Elevated dining experience on crowded ship

DINING: This was our second Princess Cruise and the experience that impressed us the most was the elevated cuisine in the main dining room (Botticelli). Having previously sailed on Celebrity (Millenium), Holland America (Zuiderdam), Cunard (Queen Elizabeth), and Princess (Ruby), I would have rated Princess at the bottom of the list for dining. After this cruise on the Crown Princess, I would now ...

Noisy Room!

Friends were traveling on this cruise ship and I was invited to go with them. They had a balcony room on 14. I had to pay double for a room because I was considered "traveling solo!" Public restrooms were horrible! Water was leaking from a light fixture in the ceiling while we were waiting for our room. That was a sign of things to come. Several leaks throughout the ship. Don't ...

We froze in san francisco till after midnight, told there were sandwiches at hyett, not true. Ship didn't leave until 2am on the 13th so we miss a whole day. No farewell party. Princess, $25.00 will not save your reputation. 2 days later, found fridge wasn't working and my husband's meds went bad, they couldn't find anything to replace it in any mexico ports. Our last port and the rest of our trip ...
