I love their motto "Come Back New" and I came back new. The cruise from LA to Hawaii from 11/4 to 11/19 was refreshing, relaxing, and totally awesome. Everything yes everything was perfect. I slept better on a very comfortable bed in a very comfortable room. I swam in a pool where I could swim laps which is my main form of exercise. My cabin was on Lido which is deck 14. Close access to the gym, the pools, the sun decks, and the food. I walked along a very nice walk path on deck 15. I watched sunrises and sunset from deck 15. The dining experiences were fantastic. The nightly shows were like Broadway. It is an incredible peaceful experience to cruise four days at sea out to Hawaii. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets and the sky full of stars. Spiritually I made some life decisions on where I wanted to go and what I want to do. I came back new. Read Less

We wanted to try a cruise aboard once of Princess's Mega Ships. Having cruised on Princess for over 20 years, We have sailed on most of their Grand Class and smaller ships. Royal Princess did not disappoint. Beautiful, ship with a great crew, many entertainment choices and a fun Cruise Director. Some Positives: Great Princess beds, Medallion Class Crusing , Buffet and Pastry Shop on Deck 16 vastly improves the buffet experience. Alfredo"s Pizza. Many entertainment choices. Great crew and service. Mariachi group, cruise director Matt O. Halloween celebration and decorations. Some negatives: No walkable prominade deck on deck 7, there is a walking track on deck 18 but most evening after dinner too windy up there. Tiney, tiny balcony almost a JOKE. Smoke in the casino. Food: I know food is subjective but we have seem the food quality go down hill over the last few years. The specialty dining (with an upcharge) was good. The buffet was vastly improved. The main dining room menu was great on paper but sometimes it was just so-so on the plate. We usually don't send food back but this time it happened two (don't worry we found other enters to substitute). I would rate the MDR on the level of a chain dinning on land. Not sure if we will choose a Royal Class ship in the future or return to a Grand Class ship but we always have a great time on our cruises because we make it our own! Read Less

Was told how others had enjoyed the cruise and on board experiences. The staff was outstanding, the dining experience was outstanding along with the menu and excellent food. Enjoyed the entertainment especially in the princess theatre. Music was very good. I was in a wheelchair and everyone was gracious and very accommodating. Would not hesitate to travel alone even being 75 years of age and handicapped. Went on the excursion Swimming with the Dolphins. Enjoyed the experience very much. The staff helped me with my physical challenges. The steward for the cabin was excellent and took care of all our needs. Was terrific to wake up in the morning and able to look out on the balcony and enjoyed the motion of the ship. Would like to see something done with the elevators, as the congestion is horrible. There are so many wheelchairs and walkers and everyone pushes the buttons, so you never know if you are going up or down Read Less

We chose this cruise for the locations. We traveled from the UK and had three days in Vegas and three days in Los Angeles before joining the ship in San Pedro. Embarkation was very easy and quickly carried out, on board within half an hour, no hassle at all. We had been upgraded to a partial blocked view balcony cabin which we found to be really good. The cabin was spacious with plenty of storage space with the biggest amount of hangers I’ve seen on a cruise ship! Only two outlets for electrical items, both flat pin type for readers from UK? We were booked for anytime dining, but only used the main dining room once as we found the service a bit slow? Other diners around us had finished their meal before our main meal had arrived. We chose to use the Horizon Bistro or Court instead. The food from there was just as good, with plenty of choice. No problem with seating either. Plenty of activities available,gym,basketball,table tennis, shuffleboard etc, I only used the putting green.Also a running / walking track available. The service on board was overall very good, but some of the deck bars could have done with more help? Also in the Princess live ,theatre only one waitress, had to go to the bar outside to get a drink. We didn’t use Princess excursions as along with other cruise lines we find them too expensive, as always you can get them cheaper! Entertainment was ok, have seen better, but the game shows etc were good fun, the comedian was very good in the main theatre. If I had a real complaint it would be that there was a real lack of sanitizer available in the restaurants? Another one was my wife was really ill one night with vomiting, we went back to our suite and then she developed diarrhoea ,as per the info in the Daily Platter we contacted the health centre to inform them about this, the health official then informed me this was not an emergency and if they had to come out to see her they would charge us?? Disembarkation was as easy as embarkation was, least fuss ,done in an orderly timed way and luggage waiting on the dock side unit. We had booked transport to the airport via Princess, which as I have said was a bit more expensive, but we bit the bullet to make sure we got there without mishap? Overall a very good cruise with good ports of call except for Ensenada ,if you are just getting off for a walk around the port area not a very nice place to visit ,dirty and full of tat ? Read Less

Breathtaking Magnificent Panama Canal transit, great service in the dining room by Alexsandra Vrapcevic, fun activities with cruise director Fernando, Lauren Meyer always extending herself Minisuite D314 was great, weather fantastic. Perfect mix of sea days and ports. Wish there were more stops in Mexico. Very smooth embarcation and disembarkation. Used luggage service direct to airport for first time. That was fantastic, no overweight baggage fees (they are waived) Activities were fun particularly the game show Yes or No and Gender Showdown. Never laughed so much! On board entertainment was excellent, liked all but one of the acts. Cruise lectures about ports of call were well done My husband has a handicapped scooter and it made it so much easier to get around. Two ports had tenders so he couldn't use the scooter but staff very accommodating giving him time to walk We did a cruise tour that included a Gatun lake cruise. They said it was easy for all but there was a long uneven walk on steps and boat ramp. The boat ride was a waste of time. But the tour of the new locks was fantastic Read Less

We chose this Itinerary because of the ports of call and the full transit of the Panama Canal and also because of the cruise line and the ship. The Coral Princess is a great ship with more public space per passenger than most of the big or medium cruise ships, which makes you feel less crowded everywhere you go and is also a very nice designed ship with beautiful lounges, bars, restaurants, atrium, pools, etc. The food on the Coral Princess was very good specially in the dinning room. The quality and presentation of the dishes was excelent and made me order more than one appertizer and sometimes even 2 entrees several nights. Although our waiters service the first night was very slow and made me complain about it, the rest of the cruise the service was excelent and they explain us why the servce was so slow the first night. As in many ships I have been in, the waiters always remember what you like normally and the next days you get that even without asking. The entertainment on the ship was ok but no the best, on a 15 days cruise we just got 3 shows with the ships singers and dancers, which are the shows I most enjoy, the rest was solo singers, comedians, ventriloquists and so on. The productions on those 3 shows with the singers and dancers were excelent and I know any of those cost a lot, but I think they could do more shows that involve the singers and dancers even if the staging is not very elaborated. The Itinerary was also something that made us choose this cruise, all the ports of call were great even though there are some better than others but definitely all of them were interesting and beautiful. We were very pleased with the food which was excelent in general and the service was also very good all around the ship. Remarcable good was the service we got by our cabin steward, who was not only very friendly and efficient, but also resolve us a lot of requests we had along our stay. The ship is in great conditions for being a ship with 17 years in service, and they still mantain it in great shape. Read Less

Previous cruise with Princess to Alaska had very nice service. This one reinforced my opinion of Princess professionalism. We are looking forward to our next cruise! For anyone who has never enjoyed the pleasure of CLUB CLASS, I fully recommend the experience. no waiting and professionalism of the wait staff. it is like watching a highly trained dance team. The buffet was also convenient for variety. The theater is beautiful and the performers added fun to the evenings. Arrive early to avoid the crowd. Mini suites are the way to go for comfort an space to relax. With the size of the ship it was almost impossible to feel movement while sailing. You have to get a mini suite with a balcony for best views when sailing into/out of ports comfortably. Princess covered the before and after cruise logistics of transportation with bus services to/from airport and to/from hotel after the cruise. Thanks for a great time. Read Less

This brief cruise to Cabo San Lucas and back appealed to my wife and me as we have reservations to sail aboard in December. We will be taking a family cruise with kids and grand kids on the Royal over New Year’s this year. We have sailed on six other princess ships and this was the largest. I will admit we were a little concerned because of her size and 3000 person capacity. However we found crowding was seldom an issue and there are some improvements over other ships that really make sailing on her fun. Embarkation from San Pedro is from the old terminal. Very crowed there, but lines kept moving. The ship is too long to dock at the new terminal and even backs out of the harbor to the breakwater before turning around. The check in involved a lot of walking in the cavernous structure. We were given medallions even though we did not complete the medallion registration before the cruise. Our room was to the all the way aft on deck 11, Baja, the last balcony before the suites, close to the aft elevator which runs up to the Horizon Court on deck 16. It is straight down to deck 7 where an outside sitting area is. There is no outside Promenade deck running the lengths of the ship. There are two sitting areas on each side of ship.The ride was exceptionally smooth. Everything worked and was in good shape. The beds are especially comfortable. We had a neighbor several cabins down that tried to hang an article of clothing on a hanger to dry by sticking it in the fire system nozzle on the ceiling. The glass rod sensor in the nozzle broke and the whole room had to be redone, carpet included. Ship staff did it in a day. We were very impressed by the efficiency of the staff. The biggest plus was the Horizon Court Buffet. Unlike other Princess buffets, with one way in and at times overcrowded, this design uses four separate serving lines separated by about 20.’ Each line is about 50 feet long. And the food is unbelievable. Usually four carving stations with beef, pork, ham, as well as, shrimp prepared multiple ways, cold, cooked, fried, this flavor that flavor and so on. The seating was also not a problem ever at peak times, always seating available. There was even a separate room, The Pastry Shop, with multiple deserts. This design is a winner. We also ate at Crown Grill which with excellent service, food and wine. Alfredo’s Pizza is on this ship on deck 6 and has an expanded menu which includes antipasto salads and calzones. Don’t forget you can have what you want on board, so I ordered a double pepperoni…mmmm good. In the past we liked dinner at Sabatini’s, but on our last two ships they did not offer Lobster Three Ways. On the Royal it’s back on the menu. Although we did not eat there, we will in December. Princess should keep this item on all their Sabatini menus. The casino seemed a little crowded, but not bad. We found a couple of friendly slots, hit many bonuses, and left with only a loss of $8 for both of us. We felt like winners. The pool area, usually very crowded on other ships was remarkably spacious. In addition to the usual pool lounges, there is comfortable patio furniture in conversational clusters. We always found a seat there. The glass floored Sea Walk is on both sides of ship on this deck. It extends out over the sea and is a little scary…but not too much. Had pizza one day for lunch. Great as usual. Ordered a double cheese burger for dinner one night and felt like Guy Fieri biting in to it. Very good. Finished with the free ice cream on way to room. The large atrium is a very positive improvement. Twice the usual size, more seating and decorated in a very dazzling manner. We watched the paper airplane contest there. Very nice. There were just over 300 kids on this cruise. I have to say we observed them in the pool area, buffet, atrium, etc. All were well behaved and looked excited to be on the ship. The buffet had a small kids offering of mac and cheese, pigs in a blanket, PB+J and baloney sandwiches. The Medallion system was a mystery to us before this cruise, but we are sold. Wear it on a lanyard, put it in your pocket or wear it as a watch. As you approach your stateroom, the screen by the door welcomes you, shows your picture and unlocks the door for you. When visiting a bar, your icon is on an IPad, and confirming your stateroom number, the staff just touches icon. Transaction done. Same in the stores, photo department, and if you order drinks in a dining room.There were folks with cell phones using the locator feature to tract down kids or friends. The same when going ashore. Just touch it to the reader. There are other features we didn’t explore, but embrace this, it is terrific. By the way, the internet was as fast and easy to get on and off. No problem sending or downloading pictures. We went ashore in Cabo each day we were anchored there. The Royal has a new lifeboat design. They are bigger and seating is at the same level as the entrance from the ship. No more stairs down to a hold. The hull has a main keel rather than a catamaran design. There is still roof seating. Cabo was hot and humid since a tropical storm had just departed. We walked all the way to end of water front and enjoyed the stores and a couple margaritas. I didn’t have my picture taken with an iguana this time. Their big marlin Tournament was in progress so there were many fishing boats in the harbor. One complaint is the lack of Port talks. On all previous cruises we always attended, even if it covered a port we visited previously, and learned something every time. People want to know about where they are going. A naturalist talk would have really been nice even though this was a short 5 day cruise; there were two sea days and a couple half sea days. A couple foot health lectures could have been scrapped. Our seas were smooth for the cruise. We had a couple of exceptional sunsets and a great sunrise sky one morning. The last sea day was mostly overcast and a little cool. We did see dolphins several times but no whales. Disembarkation logistics at this older terminal needs to be redesigned. There must be ways to reduce the amount of walking/running people were forced to do. The handicapped, elderly, and folks dragging bags and travel treasures were exhausted by the crush of humanity. The luggage workers were terrific and knew some short cuts. If Princess plans to continue having the bigger ships calling here, they need to negotiate a terminal redesign with the Port Authority. Can’t wait to get aboard again in December. Read Less

Nothing but great things to say about this experience. From the check in to disembarking it was flawless. The staff was wonderful and tried to get all involved. Inwas nervous if I would like it, being a first timer, but it was AMAZING! Had wonderful excursions and met a bunch of wonderful people. They had a great system for departing the boat for Cabo and plenty of tenders going back and forth. The food and wait staff was amazing for our scheduled dining. Great photographers and the cost was very reasonable to purchase our photos. Wonderful pools and hot tubs and very well staffed. They were always on task to make sure you had everything you needed; no matter how busy. The had a cake extravaganza and the cake were beautiful. The club's were great and well maintained and staffed. Overall wonderful experience. We just got home and already planning the next with Process. Thank you Princess Royal! Read Less

I organized this cruise with 18 of my clients who love to sail on Princess Cruises. We have been on this cruise before and enjoy the ports and the time at sea. Sailing on the larger ship was a little overwhelming in the beginning of the cruise but very shortly found our way and found that there was so much room especially the piazza area and the pool area and the entire ship. The food was outstanding in all the dining rooms and specialty dining restaurants. We also enjoyed the sushi bar and the piazza café. Loved having coffee in the piazza in the morning before breakfast. Also, loved the buffet area. So much more room and the food was delicious. I was very happy with our dining room and having 18 people in my group Generoso Mazzone arranged a great dining room and table location for my group. All of these people are Princess cruisers and were very impressed with the ship, the dining rooms, specialty dining and activities on the ship. The entire Princess staff were very helpful and pleasant and they are all a credit to Princess Cruises. Read Less

I chose the Royal for a new sailing experience, looking for exciting adventures and it was all this and more. The ship is absolutely stunning and has great offerings of food, entertainment and activities. Many events centered in the Piazza. However, with a larger passenger list, there is not enough crew. Longer than usual wait times for drinks and meals at dinner. At times we were unable to find waiters for a glass of ice tea, or coffee in Horizon Court. Our room attendant was unable to keep up with the demands of having 18 mini-suites to clean thru little fault of his own. Sadly, the Effy store had so many aggressive sales people I was turned off and refused to buy an anniversary ring. The Sanctuary service was fabulous! We tried the Sanctuary Cabana and were very pleased to not regret the $140 per afternoon cost... it was that great. Also, I got a world class hair makeover from Yureli in the Salon and I couldn't be happier. I wholeheartedly recommend the Royal... bear in mind to be flexible and in some ways lower your expectations. Who knows, may your cruise on the Royal Princess will be a 10. Read Less

Our daughter and son-in-law chose this as their first cruise and asked us to join them. We've been to Mexico several times with Princess, but never sailed on the Royal before. I was impressed that we never felt crowded despite the number of people onboard. She's a huge ship, so walking from one end to the other was a workout. (We were glad our cabin was almost midship). Our mini-suite was excellent, as always, and the staff members were outstanding all across the ship. It was some of the best food we've had on a cruise ship and the entertainment was top notch. The highlight of the trip was snorkeling with wild sea lions in Loreto on a private excursion for 4 people with Sea and Land Tours. I highly recommend them as they were waiting for us at the port, customized the day for us, and even fed us the best tamales we've ever eaten. Manzanillo is a rather unexciting port, but Cabo and Puerto Vallarta are always fun with a plethora of activities to enjoy. Read Less

Our short trip from LA to Cabo on the Royal Princess was very relaxing and refreshing. Just what the doctor ordered. We arrived a little before our scheduled embarkation time, but we just got in line and wound our way through. I had already received our Medallions, so we didn't have to show anything other than that! It really couldn't have been easier. Once on board, my husband, who was a first time cruiser, was amazed at the grandeur and beauty of the Piazza. Even though I had shown him pictures, seeing it in person is amazing. We dropped our luggage off at our room and then hit the buffet. Again, my husband was amazed at the selection and quantity! Our room was M535, a balcony room, just below Horizon Court. I was worried there would be noise from there, but it was insignificant compared to my husbands snoring. I brought earplugs for the later and apparently it blocked out the former :) Our cabin steward had our room looking great and kept it that way the whole trip. He really did a great job and was always friendly when we passed in the hallway. The wait staff in the traditional dining room, Allegro, was delightful. My husband enjoyed chatting with our waiter, Victor, so much, that he didn't want to miss a meal. We had a gift meal at Sabatini's (which was very nice) so we did miss one meal there, much to my husband's chagrin. I loved the food. I'm not hard to please, I will admit. If someone else makes it and cleans up, I'm fairly certain that I will be happy with any food that is not too adventurous. The very first night I had the prime rib. It was so good I wanted to cry happy tears! The next night was filet mignon, and another night was chicken and another night was salmon. I wish I could eat there every single night of my life! Again, I am not a foodie, far from it. But my husband and I both enjoyed the food. Horizon Court was great for lunch and breakfast. My husband loved the cookies! We watched the movies in the afternoon and napped. I got caught up on several movies that I didn't see during the summer. That was a bonus! The bed was comfy. I was very pleasantly surprised at how awesome the dancers and singers were for the big show performances. We saw "Soul" and "Encore" on this cruise. Both were wonderful and had my husband standing up and cheering at the end. I was cheering too, but that isn't remarkable :) Jeff the Juggler was super funny and very entertaining. Getting off the ship to go into Cabo was the only glitch, but it wasn't anyone's fault but the weather. We eventually got into Cabo and stayed about 30 minutes. It is true what people say about bartering. Decide what you are willing to pay for something, and you will probably get your price. We also had the free tea every day at 3:00pm. I loved that so much I want to continue it at home! Their scones are so delicious. The tea itself was only meh, but I like regular Lipton tea, so bear that in mind. Disembarkation was a little tedious (be prepared to wait for elevators), but since we were walking off with our luggage, we just left when we were ready. Typical lines to wait in, but honestly, when you are off-loading about 3,000 people, what do you expect? Overall, it was a wonderful time to relax and getaway from the daily grind. I honestly didn't want to come home and have to think about what to fix for dinner the next day! Read Less

We chose this cruise due to multiple reccomendations. A wonderful experience and our first cruise! We will return! The dining room experience was awesome We used the buffet for breakfast and lunch. There were many healthy choices. We exercised each day and were pleased with the work out choices. The highlight of our cruise experience was the Balcony Dinner and th excursions in Cabo. We did the snorkeling and swim with the dolphins. The experience in Cabo felt save and relaxing We were glad we were able to stay 2 days. Getting on and off the ship in Cabo was easy and effortless. The return back to the U.S. port in San Pedro was just the right amount of time being on the ship Leaving the port, we took the airport transfer provided by Princess, the bus was reasonable and air conditioned All in all no negative incidences. This was my husband and my first cruise, we will be back! Read Less

I chose a Princess cruise because of how highly recommended Princess was by many friends. I knew I did not want to add the time or price of flights to or from another port, so I chose a round trip from my local Los Angeles port. The destination was really not much of a factor in my selection. I was so impressed with the service all over the ship. I've never experienced service like this anywhere else. Everyone was so friendly, helpful, attentive and welcoming. It was amazing! The ship itself is beautiful and the room was much larger than I expected. The food was really good too. I couldn't believe the speed of the service in the restaurants on a sold out cruise. It blows my mind how they can serve so many people so fast. Everything about the cruise was top notch. The bartenders in the Good Spirits at Sea bar were truly memorable. Agus, Don and Patricio were just amazing. Their service was the best and their sense of humor had us in stitches the whole cruise. Matt "O", our cruise director really made the whole cruise enjoyable. He was so nice, friendly, knowledgeable and full of energy day and night. I can't wait to cruise with him again!

It promised a short getaway and definitely lived up to it ! We were able to relax in the Spa’s Enclave. The pool there is so therapeutic, the steam and sauna rooms are a must. Then top it off by lying on the warm stone bed. I also benefited from the seaweed detox treatment and massage. For anyone who needs to rejuvenate this is the place to be. Fasted embarkation and disembarkation ever!! It was very organized and everyone along the way was helpful and so friendly. The food was delicious and always fresh. We had two great dinners in the Symphony Dining room and the rest of the time we frequented the Horizon Buffet and enjoyed the convenience and variety there. And don’t forget the delicious pizza on Deck 16! We took advantage of room service in the morning and it was always on time and exactly what we had ordered. Read Less

The ship was absolutely beautiful and very elegant, not to mention, huge and well maintained! Everything you need is conveniently found on the ship; variety of shops, restaurants and other eateries, casino, theater, spa, pools/jacuzzis, bars, cafes with specialty coffee, Internet cafe, gym, The Sanctuary, the private adult only pool area, plenty of seating throughout the entire ship on nearly every level, AND MUCH MORE... including a medical area!! They provided exceptional service from our stateroom attendant, (MARIO!!) to room service, the Horizon Buffet waiters, and every other staff member aboard the ship. There were great sights on and off board. The views were exceptional! The excursions were great, but please note, the Princess excursion options are much better than private shore ones! The best part of all, we truly were treated like royalty, which is very fitting for the "Princess" line of cruise ships! We will be back cruising again SOON!!! Read Less

We chose this cruise in order to experience the Panama Canal transit. We were welcomed at the airport and transported to the ship. Embarkment processing was completed within five minutes and disembarking from ship to shore was completed within 15 minutes. Our cabin stewart did an amazing job as well as our dining waiter. The meals were great and the main show each evening kept you well entertained. We found time to relax, read books from the library, and made new friends each day. We took advantage of excursions at each port and found them very informative and interesting. The off-road excursion was one that stood out as we traveled the back roads in Mexico and saw how corn was ground and cooked to make tortillas. The town tours provided us with the local history and background of the local areas.I would recommend this cruise for anyone desiring to experience the canal transit. Read Less

I chose this cruise because I heard it had high ratings and was a short 3 day cruise. I really enjoyed everything and the fact that it had a structured schedule of entertainment and activities. We had a great experience at Lotus spa and got a couple's massage and hair style.Every personnel was so kind, knowledgable and helped us in every way. We were very satisfied with them. I was really happy that there was 24 hour cafes and room service along with daily live music that one could dance to. All the entertainers were so talented, I was impressed! We had so much fun and danced, ate and drank a lot. We had a chance to relax while at sea. It was absolutely wonderful and my boyfriend proposed to me on the last night we were there. It was truly a special adventure as it was a special occasion and our first cruise together with the exceptional service of the Star Princess Cruise. Read Less

Four of us women friends from across the map (Toronto, Florida, San Francisco, and Vancouver) chose this cruise as an opportunity to reunite, to hang out and chill, and it exceeded all of our expectations. Originally, we booked two balcony rooms; but when PRINCESS offered us an opportunity to upgrade to a Full Suite at a discount, and we took advantage of the offer. It was completely worth it. We enjoyed welcome champagne, “high tea” one afternoon, and a gourmet breakfast one morning out on our balcony. We made use of the thermal suites in the spa. We enjoyed stellar breakfasts and dinner at Sabatini’s. We took in the comedians, a couple of shows, and then continued our celebration for a couple of additional nights in Vancouver where spring was in full bloom. The weather on the cruise was overcast, foggy, and chilly the whole time. One night, we went to sleep to the sound of the fog horn, but this did not detract from our enjoyment. I would book this cruise again — particularly for a reunion with family. Highly recommend! Thank you, PRINCESS!! Read Less

We decided we needed a break and chose to go on a three-day cruise to simply relax. The price was quite reasonable and affordable for almost any budget. We chose the three-day cruise on the Coral Princess departing Los Angeles on Sunday afternoon and docking in Vancouver BC on Wednesday morning. Both ports provided incredibly easy arrival and departure options. The Coral Princess is one of the best ships in the Princess fleet. And it is now our favorite of all the ships we've sailed. It was comfortable, welcoming and warm. The wait and cabin staff were among the best we have ever encountered. The decor was rich and inviting. The Balcony Cabin on the Caribe was comfy. Those Princess beds are the best. You can just snuggle right in. We chose Anytime Dining in the Bordeaux where the menu selections were many. One of the best appetizers on the menu is any of the chilled soups. The Horizon Court food was always fresh with lots of choices. And finally the entertainment in the Princess Theater was high quality, with some of the best singers, dancers and musicians we've ever encountered on any cruise. Read Less

Quick 3 day repositioning cruise heading north to Vancouver. Flight in to LAX was perfect since Princess has staff at the baggage pickup area. My flight came in at 9:20 am. Bought transfer to ship at baggage claim from Princess personal and waited for bus. Our luggage stayed with staff and we were taken directly to ship. On the Coral Princess ship by 11:30 am. Luggage made it onto ship without any problem & was so nice not to deal with it on bus or pier. Beautiful day in LA. Blue sky and able to sit on padded lounge chairs by the indoor pool and watch the seals swimming near the ship. Nice lunch at Horizon buffet which is at the front of the ship. Went to one production show at the Princess Theater/ front of the ship. Enjoyed the special guest singers, Princess singers and band that preformed. Went to a comedy show at the back of the ship, really like that lounge and comedy was nice with little or no profanity. Relaxing Trip. Still like to watch the Yes, No game. Anytime dining was good. For Vancouver I was in walkoff group 2 taking own luggage off. Although we were slightly late to the dock/pier, I was walking off the ship by 7:45 am. Made prior reservation with Quick Shuttle and able to catch the 9 am bus to Seattle without any problem for my flight. This reposition sailing only offered transfers to Vancouver airport. I really liked the size of the Coral Princess and thought it was a pretty ship and like it, would sail on it again. Someone mentioned no seating by the Atrium on this ship, I didn’t really go there much. Didn’t notice any smoke smell from casino which was really nice. Loved that their was always lounge chairs available to use. Read Less

We love the Royal Princess Cruise ship. We had sailed on it on a 21 day Mediterranean Cruise in 2016. Enjoy the layout of the ship, which includes the Princess Live. We were eager to try out the new Medallion Class and were were celebrating our 35th. Wedding Anniversary. One of the reasons we chose this cruise is because it finished in Vancouver. We live in nearby Point Roberts , Washington State. We were Happy to celebrate our Anniversary in San Diego, California on Cinco De Mayo. Lots of celebrations going on in Old Town, San Diego. This was the first time that the Royal Princess has been on the West Coast! Matt O’Brien was our awesome cruise director. We selected an interior cabin this time. It was super cozy. Comfortable, and clean. We had plenty of room for our clothes. We preordered waters and beers for our room. Totally convenient! Love the new Medallion Class! Ease of embarking and disembarking! Fast! Great way to order drinks! Delivered directly to you. You use your Medallion for all purchases, everywhere on board. Including the laundry room, and the slot machines! Can’t say enough! It was awesome! Entertainment was good. The comedian, AJ Jamal, was a standout! He was the entertainment for two nights! He was awesome! The food was good. The pizza was available in two locations Alfredo’s Pizzeria , where they make individual pizzas to order. They also have other Italian food available. There is NO upcharge. The pizza is outstanding. Pizza can also be found up by the pool. You can get it by the slice. Delicious pizza! We went to the movies under the stars. Popcorn is available during the movies. Omelettes are made to order for breakfast at the buffet. Freshly sliced smoked salmon and bagels daily. Steak and all kinds of eggs, cereals, pastry. Something for everyone to eat at the breakfast buffet. There were two formal nights. The second formal night had mini lobster tails and risotto. I previously lived in Maine, so I am a tad picky with my lobster. This lobster tail was extremely tiny. We ate in the Steakhouse and it was delicious, as always. It never disappoints! My husband had the rib eye steak and I had the lamb chops. Cooked to perfection. Had salad. My husband had the baked potato with toppings and I had grilled fresh asparagus and the creamed spinach. Delicious. We also had dessert. There is a $29.00 upcharge each to eat at the Crowngrill Steakhouse. I highly recommend this for an extra special evening. Pub lunch! What can I say? We look forward to pub lunch on Princess Cruises. There is NO upcharge. Always a lineup! Usually held in the Wheelhouse Pub or the Crowngrill Steakhouse. They have fish and chips with mushy peas, steak and kidney pie, bangers and mash, English Plowman’s lunch. They also have British Beers available for purchase. It is just the right amount for lunch. We thoroughly enjoy the Pub Lunch! Read Less

One more cruise to be Elite! I pick the cruise that matches the port closest to where I live and the itinerary. Seattle: The Hop on Hop off at Seattle was terrible. Many went to complain and received 50percent back. Do not recommend. San Francisco: Right across street is Street Car stop (cable, trolley) that you can take to go to Fishermans Wharf etc, or to go to San Francisco Trolley tour. Also take it within two blocks of rental car companies. Also Hertz, Enterprise, etc will reimburse you cab fare from car rental. We rented car for the day to drive to Napa. Watch out for extra $14 toll fare added to rental. Hertz AAA Discount. Enterprise thru Costco. San Diego: walk or take bicycle taxi, or taxi down to Seaport Village. 10 of our group took the Seal tour. (Duck tour.) Or book Hop on Hop off either thru ship or independently. Embarkation: New Medallion Class ship. So no preference to preferred boarding. Disembarkation in Vancouver: We took taxis, big mistake. Some took train to airport, bigger mistake. Several cruses in one day. Long line for taxis, then they kept taking the handicapped first and our line did not move until we complained that they were not rotating us. In the future we would book Princess shuttle. We like the fact that the Royal Class ships have the fresh ground coffee not the syrup. Read Less

This ship is old and is showing it's age. There were a few maintenance issues but nothing that would keep me from going again. Ship Captain Tuvo was FABULOUS!! He came to almost every meal in the dining room and greeted us. His presentations are funny and he made this cruise for us. The food and service were top notch and the crew members would greet each passenger with a smile and a greeting as we passed in the hallways. The entertainment was great I could not have had a better time. This is our 12th Princess cruise and we are looking forward to our next one. I have spoken to many passengers on our cruises and a lot of them have been on multiple cruise lines. Some like the benefits and services of another cruise line but most seem to think that Princess has the program and cruises they like best. I personally don't think you are going to find a better value based on the total package you receive on Princess. The entertainment was great and the theatre crew works hard to put on first-class shows. The food and service were marvellous and the deserts are so good it is hard to eat just one. The Excursion crew does a great job of letting you know what there is to do and see in every port. I WANT TO GO AGAIN! Read Less
