Selected this cruise due to Itinerary we had not visited including Carnival in Rio. and Princess had previously been our first cruise line choice State Room was clean..only 1 chair for 2 people..fridge didn't work. Dining room menu was short and you needed to pay extra to get lobster, steak, etc. All staff were friendly and helpful. They tried to work around HQ dumb dictates Ship was ...

We selected this cruise as an alternative to flying home from an expedition cruise to Antarctica. Cruising is a great way to see multiple countries, have a consistent place to eat, plus the opportunity to enjoy entertainment and other amenities. People should also know they are a captive audience, pay more for adult beverages, excursions, will likely experience nonstop marketing to buy ...

I originally chose this cruise for the itinerary. It may have sounded wonderful on paper but the experience couldn't have been further from the truth. Although some things were not Princess's fault I say 90% was. This is a very old ship that should have been in dry dock. It had problems you would expect like leaks everywhere and a musty smell throughout the ship. 3 in my room alone. The showers ...

Route: 58 days round trip Fort Lauderdale including 21 ports of call, passage through the Panama Canal, rounding Cape Horn, and scenic cruising around Devil’s Island. Total trip 17,591 nautical miles. 1. General Comments: We are regular cruisers, and our focus of this cruise was to get an overview of the South American continent. This cruise showed us that further visits are needed. Five ...

We chose this cruise since it was 58 days and included sailing around South America. We had previously been to South America but never to all the places were we went to on this cruise. Some of the highlights for me was visiting Easter Island, Falkland Islands and Rio De Janeiro. Embarkation went smoothly, however disembarkation was delayed over one hour for our group versus the published schedule. ...

Why did I choose this cruise? I have no recollection of why I chose Princess again after a mediocre world cruise experience in 2018. What could I have been thinking? What "offer" caught my attention and convinced me to ignore my "never Princess again" decision? Whatever it was, it was a mistake to book another long cruise with this pitiful line. I had hoped, I suppose, that the Island ...

Like to travel on Princess ships. This was a amazing itinerary. Two things I really wanted to do was Easter Island and the Nazca lines. For me that was a over the top experience. There where many other things that I really enjoyed. Zumba in the morning, the shows at night. The Entertainment team was super. The whole crew, starting with the captain was concerned to show us a good time and to keep ...

The reason I chose this voyage was the amazing itinerary that was offered. I had only cruised on Princess one time and I wasn’t happy. I had many friends that praise the line so I was willing to try again. Unfortunately, our experience was not a positive one. The itinerary was wonderful and we were able to get to most ports, except one due to a delay because of fueling, weather and ...

Not what I expected from Princess

We chose it because of the itinerary, Around South America. However, on many occasions the pools were closed "under maintenance" especially on some sea days when it would have been ideal to enjoy the pool: no explanation was offered as to the issue. On this cruise of 58 days we were offered two lobster nights and only twice an offering of escargots: we expected a few more evenings with ...
