Disappointed

Age 50s

We have cruised with princess before so had high expectations. However, meal choices had been greatly reduced and as i had the nerve to ask for my fillet steak well done in chops grille, the chef decided to punish me by beating it to within an inch of its life (was as flat as a pancake and we paid a service charge of 25 dollars for the pleasure). evening entertainment was poor resulting in us ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 50s

We've sailed Princess five times. We like the line, even with the sales push, but this cruise was just okay. You have to pay for some things that used to be included, like king crab and lobster, and the ship needs repairs and upgrades... The ship just feels worn, and some failing systems are evident. Our shower sprayed dark brown dirty water one morning. It was disgusting, it turned my towel ...

Age 70s

Last time we cruised, we notice those cool looking balcony rooms next to the small Terrace Pool (aft) near Horizon dining area. There are two on each side on the Riviera floor. We always get a balcony on that floor but usually it is near the center Starboard side (around 607). But this time, we decided to try a rear balcony. BIG mistake. Normally, we spent about an hour a day (or more) on our ...

DH & I returned from our first Princess Cruise recently. Overall, it was ok, but there were good and bad things during the week, like all cruise lines. First the Good: We arrived at Port Everglades about 12:30 and it looked bad, with lines half way down the walkway outside, but the line moved forward quickly and we were aboard by about 1:15 PM (the most efficient boarding we've ever ...

Second Time Cruiser on Princess

Age 60s

Our first cruise on Princess was aboard the Golden to Alaska. Our second was aboard the Ruby to the Caribbean. The Ruby was much more modern and showed less wear and tear than the Golden did. Service, across the board, was great, other than the Horizon Court. Out of 7 days we were on-board, we were only offered something to drink twice, maybe three times and we had to go fetch it ourselves when we ...

the nov 29--dec 6 cruise to st thomas,st maartin &grand turk was good, not great. staff allowed an excursion operator to cancel a trip ON THE DOCK !!. only allowance was "we will refund your money", of course you will !, the trip was canceled !! little things like a smaller assortment of hard rolls and danish, cheaper pizza, etc. give an air of cutting costs. staff STILL superior, hope they ...

Age 70s

We're just off a 5-night Western cruise, only ports were Princess Cays and Ocho Rios, so I'll try to make this brief. Pros: Service was mostly excellent. Our room steward, Cecile, was one of the best we've ever had - and we've cruised a lot on nearly every major line. Happy hour every day between 3 and 4 at the Wheelhouse bar, buy one get one free. Princess drinks are VERY expensive, so a BOGO ...

Age 70s

Ruby Princess, early December 2014, Eastern Caribbean. Grand class ship, 3,000 passenger capacity. Passenger demographics. Seemed to be two age bands, around 40 and a somewhat larger group, around 70-80, very few children. I had the impression of a tendency towards "couch potato", not very lively or sophisticated. Entertainment (Since Princess is American, I've used USA Dance tempos). Club ...

This will be short and sweet, Princess has entered the 4-5 day cruise market. And this is NOT their forte. Leave the shorty cruise to momma Carnival. For those Princess die hards used to the 7 day cruises, let me tell you what you WON'T find. No welcome back parties on the 4 day cruise. No liquid soap AT ALL for non-Elite or suite guests. No towel figures in your bed at night. Nightly premium ...

First Time Cruiser

Just got back today; figured I'd write a review while it's fresh on my mind. Pros: 1. Very clean public rooms, state rooms, dining rooms, etc.: all first class. 2. Service and attitude among staff was professional, friendly and courteous. 3. Nightclubs/dancing (at Explorers): Thank goodness for the Liquid Blue Band. They were an awesome party / dance band that played in the Explorers Lounge. ...
