My partner wanted to sail under the Golden Gate Bridge one last time so he convinced me it would be great for both of us. I had expected to have sunny days with a little bump here and there but that is not what ...

Not the ending we had hoped for

This was our first Princess cruise, so we truly didn't know what to expect other than what we had read and what Princess is known for. Embarkation was a breeze even if we were required to fill out a medical ...

Easy to sail from San Francisco. Had friends who had taken this cruise and were fairly content, but this was years ago. Ship tired and way to full of “up sale” events. Charge for everything you might ...

Bored to Death.

I would never suggest this cruise. The sea days sucked. 1 or 2 sea days aren't bad but 4 or 5 at a stretch is too much. If your under 70 you will feel like a teenager. I have never seen more elderly people in ...

Wonderful Hawaiian Cruise with Reservations

Princess has it right on Embarkation and Disembarkation. Smooth process proved to be one of the best. The ship is older and void of all the exciting pastimes of newer ships but full of traditional pastimes for ...

Have read some negative comments but I knew I was going on a ship that was 20 yrs old so my expectations were a little lower. I have been on newer ships that I did not enjoy nearly as much as this ship. The staff ...

Chose the cruise to get into warm weather. Met our expectations. Only had one day of cruising with 'rough seas', waves at 8 feet. We wish we had more time at ports; excluding Ensenada (three hours was enough). ...
