First Princess Experience was Definitely not Royal

Review for Royal Princess to Hawaii

SAN FRANCISCO – HAWAIIAN ISLANDS Roundtrip Deck 15 M725 “Premium Deluxe Balcony”, a completely fabricated description I am an event planner, so hyper-critical. My mantra is that it takes no more effort to do things right than wrong. But you have to CARE. Bottom line for us was ...

We were disappointed in this cruise. The entertainment was sorely lacking, the food was horrible. Everything tasted like curry or the flavoring from the link sausage. Embarkation and debarkation was a nightmare. Not the Princess we've cruised on before. Lack of crew, if you wanted a drink, go to the bar and get it. Princess wasn't ready to sail and they winged it the whole way. It's the ...

We are platinum level on princess cruises. We have sailed on the Royal Princess before, and had a really nice time. I was really disappointed on this trip with the staff and service. We embarked in San Francisco for a 15 day Hawaii Cruise. Embarkation: From the moment we were in the waiting area for embarkation, I knew something wasn’t right. Embarkation was a nightmare. Huge ...

We have sailed with Princess in the past and were anxious to get back on board. We left San Francisco rather late (not sure what the holdup was), burt experienced going under the Golden Gate Bridge at twilight! How crazy was that! Then it was off into the wild blue seas, which got my husband completely seasick for the next two days. Regardless, the Medallion system worked great, although I ...

What happened to my Ruby?

I'm not sure what happened to the Ruby since I cruised on her in July of 2022, but something sure changed. Dining: Crown Grill: We ate there 2 times, and the first time I ordered the Filet Med Rare - It was the toughest piece of meat I've ever eaten......tasted like a cheap piece of sirloin steak. It was cooked perfectly, but man was it tough. The 2nd time I ordered the Porterhouse ...

An Incredibly Relaxing Cruise

We chose this cruise because we have sailed to Hawaii five times previously and we love all the sea days. It is also a great way to get a taste of the islands: Oahu, Kauai, Maui, and Hawaii. As an added bonus, our favorite Hawaiian ambassadors Brian and Rowena Vasquez were onboard, teaching ukulele, hula and a wide variety of Hawaiian-themed crafts. They embody the Spirit of Aloha and really ...

Great cruise experience. Helped by great weather. Were able to sunbathe for all but the last day. Despite embarcation being at the old pier we found it seamless and worth the effort on the app up front. The app and wifi worked perfectly. Food was superb in the MDR we used the one near vines. Good quality. Perfect portion.sizes and brilliant service. We went to Sabatinis twice. Food and ...

As cruisers since 2008 and having done 16 total, this being our 17th and 4th Princess cruise I'm sorry to say going was a mistake. 15 day Hawaii round trip from San Francisco, flew in day of the cruise and Uber from OAK to the pier #27, split fare with our 2 cruise buds and the total Uber was only $66 + tip. Ship was fine, clean, maintained, employees friendly but all the old covid protocols ...

Anything but a Miracle

2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

We just got back from Hawaii on Sept 30th and this cruise was anything but a Miracle. It started out with 4 sea days which wasn't so bad but it was not only a family vacation but also for my 10 year anniversary. There were about 28 of us in total. I had a stateroom on 1 and found out the first week that the cruise that had just disembarked the ship from Alaska had a lot of covid cases and that ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

We had been trying to go on this cruise since April 2020 and were so excited to be finally going to celebrate our 25th (now 27th) anniversary. Our mini suite was spacious and our room steward was very nice and attentive. We did a vow renewal which was extremely special. We aren’t ones who need to always be doing something and spent a fair amount of time just relaxing/reading in our room or one of ...
