We have, 4 adults, have traveled together for over 40 years. We were disappointed in our balcony cabin as it was tired-dated bedding, decor, tile cracked in bathroom but good storage. Day one we rented a bungalow in the Sanctuary. Too far to walk so they changed to bungalow. Day went well although island could use some landscaping. Tram never came to pick us up so we walked halfway and a waitress ...

An excellent captain, pleasant and enjoyable voyage but tragic.

After cruising on Royal Caribbean for most of our previous dozen plus cruises, we took this 15 day cruise to the Hawaiian Islands aboard the Grand Princess. To be honest, we took this cruise mostly for it's itinerary. We have neighbors who sail Princess almost exclusively and after listening to them, felt comfortable taking our first Princess cruise. We had our friends who live just a bit north ...

The Worst Cruise I have Taken So Far!

Let me start out by saying that I have traveled the Caribbean five other times with four other lines, and I would recommend all of the other lines over Princess. Which is surprising to me because I truly expected excellence on this line. My grandmother and her friends traveled through Alaska with Princess a few years ago and loved it! We traveled with Princess through the Caribbean and hated it! ...

A Wonderful and memborable trip with out two sons and grandsons. Our 4th cruise, sons 3rd cruise and Grandsons (ages 5 & 6) first cruise! Justice is/was in a cast and the crew of the Grand Princess took very good care of us and him. From the time we got out of the taxi to get on the ship and until the time we left the ship at Fort Lauderdale. They were very helpful in all aspects of him and us ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 90s

Ten years ago my wife and I cruised on the Grand Princess during it's inaugural season in the Mediterranean and she was a Grand ship.Today she is showing her age and desperately needs reconditioning. This was our 15th cruise with Princess and we have cruised on other lines so we have a reference to compare. I must say that this cruise was our most disappointing. There were some good points but ...

First I want to preface this by saying that we have gone on cruises before with two other companies, so there is something to compare to. Obviously, this review is somewhat subjective. WHAT WENT WRONG: 1. We booked the cruise about 3 weeks before sailing online - this was over xmas and new year's December 2008 for 14 nights (Wester Carib). You have to register online through Princess website, ...

Traveling was myself 43 and my husband 50, another couple around the same age and my son and his girlfriend (mid-twenties). Let me start off by saying we are already planning our next cruise. We flew into Ft. Lauderdale the day before we left and stayed at the Ramada Airport/Cruiseport. The hotel had nice landscaping but the rooms were not very nice. All of our rooms smelled. And the outside ...

We took our first cruise ever last week. In honor of our 15th wedding anniversary - we left the kids with Grandma and took off for the Western Caribbean! What a great way to travel - should have listened to all of the seasoned cruisers a long time ago. We flew in to FLL on friday - just to avoid any delays (bad weather in Nashville lately). We stayed at the Spring Hill suites (Marriott) as they ...

This was our 5th cruise - we have spent 3 with Carnival and one on NCL. We took our 12 yr old son and 14 yr old daughter, and mother-in-law. We picked the Grand due to the stops on Jamaica and Grand Cayman. We flew out of Des Moines for a pre-night at Embassy Suites in Ft. Lauderdale - a great spot where we could see the tops of the cruise ships in port from our hotel balcony. The Princess rep ...

Arrival This was our first Princess cruise after 2 with Carnival. My wife and son and I flew from LAX (we live in So Cal) to Miami where we stayed with friends prior to boarding on Saturday. The embarkation process was quick and efficient and we were guided to our Baja balcony stateroom (B503). We then had a happy reunion with our daughter who is a crew member on the Grand and had been gone since ...
