Avoid Princess

I normally do not write reviews but people should be informed before deciding to take a cruise with Princess Cruise Lines. Don’t get me wrong, we did not have a horrible time, but there are factors that made it ...

Ship was very nice. It has some aging but nothing that interferes with a good trip. The staff was fabulous!! Don't do anytime dining. Princess just can't seem to get it right. If it assigned, get on board and ...

Panama cruise

We booked our first cruise 3 weeks prior to sailing. Be advised - there is a lot of paper work involved (and I mean a lot!) plus mandatory forms, particularly as requested by Princess cruises. At 54, we were a ...

Wonderful cruise as usual, but stay away from CTG-110 Excursion.

It was a wonderful cruise... our second transit of the canal. We will likely do it again one day. We enjoy Princess cruises, and this one met all of our expectations... except one. Wei chose CTG-110 "Old City" ...

Happy cruising of the Canal.

Panama Canal was on my "Bucket List" and having one that departed just public transit distance from my home is my first choice. I have traveled a lot on Princess and am always happy with my Princess Cruises ...

A bucket list item (Panama Canal) checked off.

We choose this cruise because going through the Panama Canal had always been something we'd wanted to do. Although this is listed as a 15 day cruise we actually got on in Vancouver which made it 18 days. Vancouver ...

Review of Panama Canal Cruise on the Island Princess

We have sail a few times on Princess and have not ever had a really bad experience. We had a smooth pickup at airport and took very little time at the terminal before boarding the Island Princes. I guess my one ...

Fortunate to Get to Enjoy This Wonderful Cruise

Super cruise. Ship clean, lots of activities, and rarely appears crowded. Was expecting an older crowd but found it largely 'my age.' That's scary. No smoking policy works great for me. Food: As always, ...

Island Princess: Wonderful Cruise Through Panama Canal

Ship Info: While the boarding process in San Francisco was a bit confused, we were able to get to our cabins (we booked C701 and C703) quickly and have time to stroll about the ship before sailing. Both cabins ...

Wanted to get away

This was our 3rd Princess cruise. We have cruised 25 times most of which were on RCCL. We went with friends mainly because the ship embarked from San Francisco and required one plane ride (home). We enjoyed the ...
