Hello: My Dh and myself can not say enough about our trip. I have never been so happy with something. We arrived the nite before sailing and stayed at the Crowne Plaza at the airport. At 10 am we went back to the airport to meet The Princess staff to be transferred to the ship. They were there waiting and we left in 10 minutes to the ship. Embarkment was amazing. We were not in any line up and ...

Greetings all, We, my wife Kathy and me, have cruised previously, 4 times with Carnival and once with Royal Caribbean. We have been talking of going to Hawaii for over two decades, we booked the 15 day round trip cruise out of Los Angeles to Hawaii, then to Ensenada and back on the Diamond Princess, now it was finally time to start the planning. Due to increasing pain in my ears when flying, we ...

For many years we have wanted to do a cruise to Hawaii. DH has previously flown to Honolulu, cruised the islands and then to Ensenada with a bus trip back to LAX and didn't wax all that poetic about the experience. This left me none too enthusiastic about it being my "ideal Hawaiian cruise vacation". Several months ago a neighbor mentioned round-trip cruises from LA to Hawaii so I thought I'd ...

My DW and I booked the March 17, 2008 cruise through our TA in Dec. 2006 which gave us 15 months of anticipation. In July we had done Alaska on Holland America's Volendam and were very pleased. We chose Princess for this cruise because a friend said it was better than HA and it left from Los Angeles which meant less hassle w/ our luggage AND we could take our golf clubs. We had a fantastic cruise ...

Diamond Princess - Hawaii Cruise - March 2-17, 2008 The Port of Los Angeles is actually in nearby San Pedro. Long Beach is the nearest airport, but most people fly into LAX because there are more flight options. All Princess transfers assume that passengers will use LAX, but we made our own air transportation arrangements and chose to fly into Long Beach one day in advance. We stayed at the ...

Our 13th cruise, second time on Diamond Princess, previous cruises with Cunard (3), Disney (3), Celebrity, Holland America (2), Royal Caribbean (2). Travelling with two kids, 12 and 15 years old. Flew into LAX day early. We rented a car from Enterprise as they had good rates despite the $25 drop off fee. They are the only car rental agency in San Pedro, besides the Crowne Plaza Hotel with a free ...

We looked forward to our Princess cruise after being away from that line for 7 years. Boarding was efficient and moved quickly. We went immediately to our stateroom which was ready at noon and we were happy with our mini-suite. We then went to the buffet on the Lido Deck and although we boarded very early it was already crowded! The buffet is set up in a very, very small area and it is difficult ...

This was our third cruise having cruised the med. with royal Caribbean and the Caribbean with holland america. Princess was by far the superior cruise experience. The weather was not the greatest especially cool at sea for most of the 10 days sailing at sea. In Hawaii we had showers pretty well every day but mostly wonderful warm days. Hawaii is so sweet anyhow. It was our second visit to ...

We are seasoned cruise people - this being number 15 for us. We have also cruised to Hawaii from California before on RCCL - Radiance of the Seas - NEVER again will we sail Princess. While we made our own fun, and enjoyed time alone and away from home there are just not enough activities that are interesting. The ship was clean and well taken care of - no complaints there. The cabins are much ...
