Return to Princess and the Sea Wow. Just finished our first cruise since February 2020. Had 6 cruise cancellations due to the Covid. Made it back on the Grand Princess for a 10-day cruise to Cabo, then up the Sea of Cortez to La Paz and our favorite Loreto. Finished with a day in Puerto Vallarta. Had good weather and calm seas the whole time. Sometimes a little wobbling to rock you to ...

We liked the ports the ship was going to, Cabo was just okay... to built up. PV is busy but much more to do. The ship is nice but needs a refresh. the food in dining rooms was very good. we were un happy in the steakhouse and the Italian restaurants, they were over booked and the food suffered. Te shows were better than we have had in the past we were very surprised. Buffet breakfast is good but ...

The customer service for this cruise was spot on, all the staff members were great! We stayed in a mini-suite which was very nice and the room service and cleaning staff were great. The food could have been better, I wouldn’t say it was bad, but definitely not amazing either. If you go on this cruise expecting five star dining, lower that expectation. My favorite food ironically was the pizza, ...

Great cruise, familiar ports (Cabo, La Paz, Loredo, Puerto Vallarta), good food onboard, exceptional staff and area has lovely weather. Cabo port requires using a tender to get to the pier. Since 2 other cruise ships were already there, our ship used its tenders which are a bit slower than Cabo's. La Paz is a walk-off port and a 40 minute bus ride to town. Once there, you'll see fun sculptures ...

Hawaiian Adventures 2022

We chose a Princess Cruise to “Hawaii” to enjoy time away after being “stuck at home” because of the pandemic. We have been aboard the Grand Princess two or three times before so we were very familiar with the ship and the amenities. The only differences we saw from previous voyages were associated with the use of the Medallion App which still has “software bugs” and doesn’t work as fast as one ...

A Grand Cruise indeed

We cruised on the Grand Princess in the Mexican Baja peninsula for 10 days at the start of March. The pre-embarkation process was grim. The medallion app is horrid to use and is/was required to enter the required information to be ready for embarkation. It took hours, it didn’t recognize our address and as a result we couldn’t put in return airports etc. Two calls to customer service were ...

Amazing Return To Cruising With Princess

My wife and I returned to cruising for the first time since December 2019 and our experience was amazing. Princess did a great job with their health & safety protocols and we felt safer onboard the Grand Princess than we did at home in a store or restaurant. The Baja Peninsula/ Sea of Cortez itinerary was perfect for a person such as myself who wanted to see whales up close. On the ...

Tavo from Cabo should be the entertainment director not the asst. Director. This is what irritates me about human resource departments and their jaded decisions! Mario, George, Giuseppe, and Fransico great restaurant managers all 10 days went above and beyond! Alix FD manager on cruise should be rewarded by Princess as an elite performer of service! Fransico and Eusepio great waiters! oh yea, ...

First time to La Paz and Loreto for us. Enjoyed both ports. Bus ride from dock to town in La Paz was longer than anticipated. Loreto is a tender port. Short tender ride. Nice town. Cabo is Cabo. Food not so good. Many street vendors. Enjoyed Slims Elbow Room(worlds smallest bar) until the 4 capacity bar filled up to 10 people. Ship is a little old and outdated. Needs renovation. Thought it would ...

First, fill out the Information for the Medallion App way in advance of the cruise. We did and it was a flawless experience from embarkation for disembarkation. Once you do this, the Medallion Class is amazing. Second, if you have any questions, ASK. EVERYONE will help. Also, there are step by step videos that will show you how to do EVERYTHING. Now, on to the cruise. The Sail Away celebration ...
