This was our 3rd trip on Princess (the previous being the Coral Princess and the Caribbean Princess). I agree with the complaints of many of the others. The Internet service was HORRIBLE. We spent 4 hours and $99.00 and could only answer 3 emails. Many times we couldn't even connect and spent lots of money while the minutes burned away. We even tried at 1:00 a.m. in the morning and had no better ...

First cruise with Princess, and I was not sure what to expect. My initial impression of the interior design was pleasant. No neon, very classic for the most part. They (and most cruise lines really) cheapen the atmosphere by setting up photo shoots, tables of t shirts and cheap jewelry, and similar up sell stations through out the ship. After my positive initial impression, my feelings dropped. My ...

I loved Princess, I have traveled with them on a few long, long voyages.This was on the Ruby Princess. From the start of this mismanaged voyage there was trouble. In Port Everglades, the ship had lengthy, long lines to embark, no one to tell you which queue was yours, no one to stop many passenger joining in the middle. The wait staff, many of whom did not speak English adequately (to the extent ...

We are elite and have returned recently from Rio de Janeiro on the Ruby Princess - What a disappointing cruise overall. I should add that after full payment, the price on this cruise dropped to the tune of $500 - $1000 per passenger depending on the cabin category......so no money back, but we got a cabin upgrade. I would rather have the money back to put towards shore excursions!! The itin ...

This was our second Princess cruise, and our first cruise longer than 3 weeks. We stayed in a balcony cabin. We usually cruise Celebrity and Oceania. Embarkation: probably, no absolutely the worst embarkation we have ever experienced. Ever. Signs not clear, "line" attendants rude. Inside, we of course picked the wrong line, and wondered in amazement how the other lines moved so quickly. ...

Great Cruise - but sad to experience the ongoing decline in quality

Traveled as a couple on this 18 day "Brazilian Adventure", going out of Ft. Lauderdale, through the Southern Caribbean, down to Brazil and ending up in Rio (on the last Carnival day). As always, my wife and I had a blast and a great experience. However, it is hard not to reminisce about how much better the quality of food and service on Princess were in the past - but such are our times, and we ...
