I loved the itinerary offered on this cruise. I had not sailed on Princess since 2005 so I was looking forward to my cruise. Even though we were not able to get into Samoa, we had a couple of extra days in Hawaii and one in French Polynesia. The ship is 13 years old but I thought for the most part it was very clean. The staff was outstanding and the Captain was amazing interacting with the ...

We selected this cruise in order to escape some winter in Michigan. The sixteen sea days appealed to us. The schedule was changed in route and we were unable to visit American Samoa which meant we spent more time in Hawaii, Bora Bora and Papeete. Still a restful experience. The response time of the Internet was reasonable but the system was unstable at times causing people to lose their ...

28 days in Fantasyland

Well, if 28 days aboard a beautiful cruise ship, being catered to, sailing to Hawaii and Tahiti - AND not getting sick isn't Fantasyland for the Senior Set, than I'll have what you're having. Embarkation was uneventful, after a night at the Long Beach Hilton and a Princess arranged transfer. We enjoyed the cruise card again, perhaps for the last time, as the Medallion era is now upon us. The ...

Our 20th cruise with Princess, 20 days on the Crown in January/Feburary 2019, was one of the three best we’ve taken with this line, thanks to the creative activity and entertainment options on board. (You can read my review here on CC). Our 21st Princess cruise, through the Panama Canal December 3-18, was, on board at least, pretty much the worst. We felt like second-class citizens because of the ...

This was my longest ever cruise, at 15 nights aboard the Emerald Princess. I got to be reacquainted with the good, so-so, and bad in the 2+ weeks. Embarkation was a nightmare. The inbound arrival was 5 hours late in disembarking. Check in actually stopped, as they had no place to put anymore people without violating the capacity for the fire escapes. Unfortunately, the Los Angeles vendor staff ...

We love sailing with Princess and enjoy the traditional atmosphere and older crowd. This cruise was great except for a few issues... Embarkation was bad from the start due to customs issues and computer problems. But I think it was just a fluke, It took several hours even for priority boarding ...They gave us free drinks on board with a nice apology for the delays. We were a party of three ...

I always wanted to visit French Polynesia and this turned out to be an excellent way to see Bora Bora, Tahiti, Moorea, and Samoa. We also got to visit Hawaii again. We had a wonderful time from start-to-finish with no complaints at all. Everything was great - food, service, ports, and the ship. We always book a mini-suite mid-ship or near mid-ship aft. Love having all the extra room, and a ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary and met several cruisers who had been on this same cruise 3-10 times. I'd never been to Hawaii, Samoa, or the South Seas islands of Tahiti, Moorea or Bora Bora, so this was a big thrill for me. Embarkation and disembarkation were a breeze. It probably helped that we were some of the last people on (2:30pm) and off (10:30am). With a 28 day cruise, there ...

I initially chose the cruise for the dates and the aft patio stateroom availability, which was taken from me. I booked the room and after they charged my american express card and sent me the info, they had assigned a room to us that we did not book. That was very disheartening. When i called them about it they said it was an "upgrade". They said that there was nothing i could do about it and ...

The Hawaii islands were as green and pretty as ever, but I didn't see any rainbows due to the overcast clouds. A tour took us to the lava fields on the big island where we walked on a lava field which was laid down back in June. When were told it was a recent flow it was a surprise! I was on a bus trip to Hilo Hattie's which filled my needs for buying trinkets. After stops on Hawaii, Kauai, and ...
