Princess gets more Carnival like every cruise
"That was the limit of anything Mexican on the 10 day cruise.Princess gave each of us $25, which did not begin to cover what we spent in SF, let alone not having the day onboard...."Read More

We were party 8 people traveling from December 30th, 2021, to January 4, 2022, to celebrate the New Year. On the last day of the cruise 5 of us tested positive for Covid. My husband slipped on the wet deck, that the crew had not cleaned up. Princess tried to charge medical bills, but the safety officer reviewed the tapes and found that he was not at fault. Since we arrived at home he is still ...

Cruise was great. Medallion Class app? Not so much.

This was our 11th Princess cruise and our 14th cruise overall. We were desperate to get away for a few days after all this Covid lockdown time. It was an eight-hour drive to Los Angeles for three of us (the worst part of the trip) and a flight from SLC for the other two. Cruise prep was fairly onerous. Pre-cruise Covid testing wasn't as bad as we expected with the at-home test kits done with a ...

I was nervous to sail as Omicron was just identified but I did feel “safe” as one could due to all the precautions/changes implemented by Princess. We were all vaccinated & tested negative just prior to sailing (proof required & reviewed), passengers were masked & distanced indoors and at venues (except for food & drink). Embarkation was amazingly swift with the medallion, Muster was modified to ...

This was a short, 5 day cruise, going solo, to celebrate my recent retirement. For me, it was about a short time alone to just decompress. The cruise was everything I needed. And, I may consider cruising solo again. It was great to set my own pace. The room, with a balcony, B510, was ideally located. I could get to the DaVinci and Bottechelli easily enough. The Stewart, Estivan, was ...

This was a short 5 day cruise to Cabo San Lucas. I've taken this cruise many times before. The food was horrible in the dining room. Couldn't tell from the menu listing what kind of food you were getting. Waiter didn't even know what the word "Beef" meant when I asked if there was any available. Waiter forgot to serve 1st courses. Head Waiter(?)/ Maitre de was very rude, condescending and should ...

We were looking to get away for some sunshine and relaxation and booked the Grand Princess 10 day Sea of Cortez cruise. We had a wonderful time. Yes, there’s restrictions with covid precautions, but that didn’t have much impact on our enjoyment. The staff in every department onboard the Grand Princess were absolutely fantastic. Dining: Princess has redone some of the menus. The ...

We chose this cruise because it left from Los Angeles and returned to Los Angeles which meant no flights for us. The itinerary was great. It was a treat to be back in Cabo and especially loved that we stayed there overnight. La Paz , Loreto and Puerto Vallarta were fun to walk around. The ship had activities going on all day and night. There seemed to be something for everyone, although we stayed ...

It was our 5 th Mexican riviera cruise. This time however it was not the standard 7 day ,same ports as last time cruise. Princess came up with a 10 day itinerary that included two new ports in the sea of Cortez as well as two nights in Cabo. Princess has upgraded many of their ships to medallion class during the off time. This was our first medallion cruise and all in all it was a success. ...

My wife Liz and I have been wanting to go to Cabo so we just jumped in. Got a balcony room, bought the packages and got to it. First thing is that dining room food is great, but buffet was minimal. Minimal crowd so that was nice. Cruise Director and staff are really something special. Gary and Steff and the lot-wonderful. I'd say being an older ship it was good but not great. But the entertainment ...

I will preface this review by saying I am copying from my posts on the Live from that @hbccruiser authored. I’ve modified it bit to “read” better but I don’t have the time to rewrite all. So it will be “choppy”. I was happy to be on board the Grand again. We sailed at 20% capacity so of course there were no lines and embarkation, disembarkation were a breeze. Even though there were so few on ...
