Okay Cruise, Missteps along the way

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

I have been on two previous Carnival Cruises. A three night interior cabin to Bahamas on Sensation and a 6 night balcony to Western Caribbean on Freedom. I feel I got a better bargain on Princess. First, they were lax with their beach towels, unlike Carnival you didn't have to worrk about constantly exchanging your towel to get a dry one. You could take your towel out on a lounger and come back to ...

I have sailed on three of the Princess ships now and the Sapphire is the largest so far. My stateroom was in the front quarter of the ship and the dinning room was at the stern so I had to walk three footballs in length to get to supper! And you can't get there from here either. It turned out that the best way to get there was go walk the length of the ship to the aft elevators to get down to the ...

This was a retirement present to myself...28 day cruise to Hawaii, Samoa, and French Polynesia. Spent a pre-night at the LAX Marriott (Princess preferred hotel) that included transportation to the ship. For some reason we had a 2 hour delay leaving for the ship and no explanation was given by the Princess reps. Once we reached San Pedro, the driver had no clue how to get to the ship! We drove ...

It was very long - 28 days. And, the list of activities was really paltry, unless you're into: Morning Stretch Class, Knitters & Knatters, Suspension Training, Zumba, Sudoku, Table Tennis, WII bowling, Bridge Lectures, Amateur Magicians training, Buying & using makeup, Chinese Herbal medicines, Ballroom for beginners, Scattergories (don't even ask), Shuffleboard, Golf ...

Booked the 28 day Hawaii/South Pacific cruise on Sapphire Princess in late August 2013. Selected guaranteed inside. Received a great inside room, Baja deck, just aft of mid-ship. Room was quiet, a/c in room was almost too chilly and couldn't get it to warm up much. Others we talked with mentioned their rooms were too warm and couldn't get them cooler. Asked steward for a couple of extra pillows ...

My husband and I have cruised with Princess 6 times - twice on the Sapphire. HOTEL: We drove to Long Beach and stayed at the DoubleTree on Cabrillo. There is no extra charge for cruise parking. One is simply asked not to park in any of the parking spots marked "hotel parking". An exceptional value and a very nice facility. SHIP: We liked the ship - love the layout. So nice that the newer ships ...

At check-in we waited in line for a very few minutes, we're Platinum (now Elite) and eligible for 'priority' check-in and the line for us was no shorter than the regular check-in lines. Either went quickly and we proceeded to a sitting area to await actual boardWe are retirees living in Las Vegas and fed up with the hassle of flying and the TSA indignities. And a very great bonus.....when I ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This was our 30th Cruise and 7th on Princess, which has become one of our two preferred Cruise lines along with Celebrity. This was by far our longest Cruise to date at 28 days including 18 Sea Days, which we enjoy, including 8 in a row from Tahiti back to LA. We have done a number of 14 day cruises and also have done 7 Sea Days in a row in the past. We had sailed around French Polynesia on the ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Most people were between 70-95, about 15 kids, maybe a dozen adults below 40, a skattering of adults between 40-60. Polite people, lots of wheel chairs, walkers, and canes. Quiet. Cruise director and staff were excellent for all ages!! Shows and performances were all very good! Lots of interesting lectures ahead of visiting many South Pacific places. The gym was surprisingly crowded all the time - ...

And we love sea days....after the evening show when the Cruise Director announced the events for the next and said...SEA DAY...the audience cheered.... Guess we fit in! As usual, we do enjoy our time spent on Princess cruises, this being no exception. Our weather was quite good throughout, there was minimum problem with 'rocking of the ship'. Dining be a highlight of cruising, I'll start here. ...
