I have plenty to say here, mostly negative, but... in all fairness... there were positives to note: PROS Embarkation process was very simple Using the Medallion for room access and purchases was very easy Outstanding nature presentations Excellent musical entertainment, comedians The ship band/orchestra is REALLY good Alfredo's Pizzeria (complimentary) produces consistently ...

We choose this cruise as it's been a "bucket list" cruise for us for a while, but mostly because back in November we were very concerned that our two week Caribbean cruise would be canceled, so we cancelled it proactively and booked the 15 day Hawaii cruise. We had previously sailed on Grand in December for a 10 day Mexico cruise and really enjoyed it. The trip across the ocean from LA to Hilo ...

There arent too many positive things I can say about this cruise. The ship was kept uncomfortably cold the whole trip, the food was mediocre at best, entertainment was only fair, staff was pleasant but overworked, and the ship had numerous problems, including toilets either not flushing or overflowing. The food at the buffet was not hot at any meal. We ate breakfast and lunch there everyday, ...

The new "Medallion" tool is awful and there is no alternative offered to this horror

We chose this itinerary for the seadays involved in getting to and from HI. We'd also had nice experiences with Princess pre-pandemic so we opted for them again. While we were in lockdown, Princess spent two years developing an onboard network tool called Medallion. It's a device, the medallion they issue you on boarding to wear on your person, and it's a network for interfacing with ...

Disappointed in Princess

This was my retirement cruise. I alerted Princess and added the milestone in the Medallion app, but nothing was done to acknowledge. The ship should be in drydock by now, but should have been done much sooner. There were plenty of water leaks, a shattered window in the buffet. It is long overdue for maintenance. There were a lot of people / staff getting COVID. The Cruse Director, Steve, ...

Missed Hawaii because of positive test

We chose this cruise for DW's birthday. We'd been to Hawaii before, but this would be a great second half of a B2B. I tested positive on test day before turn around and DW tested positive the next day (her birthday). We went to isolation for 11/10 days and thus missed all of Hawaii except what we could see from our balcony. That wasn't much since most of the ports were working ports and not ...

HAWAII!!!! Beautiful. Everything I imagined and more. San Francisco was just as the media describes. Although we arrived a day early and our hotel was in a great location on Nob Hill, we decided to not go out. Embarkation was confusing. It started late and there was a very long line that we waited in for over two hours. The ship did not get underway until after 7 (instead of 4) and there ...

Initial booking, BB guaranteed. I specifically stated during booking that I did not want an upgrade. The day after booking and payment, I was upgraded to the cabin I specifically said I didn't want. The ship was understaffed. Embarkation / Demarcation – both unacceptable, 2 hours late for each. Check in especially bad because I couldn't do pre-cruise doc's on their App, I was assigned ...

We chose this cruise to be with friends, and also to be a "bucket list" trip to the Hawaiian Islands. Unfortunately, all the friends had to cancel for various reasons, so we made the cruise as a solo couple. We require handicapped-accessible accommodations as my wife is scooter bound. Pre-cruise issue 1: The Medallionclass app We were supposed to enter our pre-cruise information and ...

We chose this cruise as we wanted to visit Hawaii and the ruby princess seemed like a nice ship. Embarkment - well what a disaster everyone turned up to embark at the same time which led to massive queues everywhere total chaos took us over 4 long hours to get on board. No apologies no information just felt we were left to get on with it. When we did eventually get on board our madellion class ...
