Panama Canal a must see

We chose this cruise as a must do - bucket list. The ship was clean and well maintained. The staff and crew were courteous, kind and helpful. The food in all restaurants was excellent. The cruise director and his staff kept us busy and well informed throughout the cruise. The tenders at the port of calls were fast and efficient. The tours we were on were great. There is a lot of variety for all ...

We chose this cruise for 2 reasons: Embark from SF and the Panama Canal passage. Embarkation with Princess in SF is consistently one of the best experiences we have ever had. We showed up at the port when we were instructed to and were on the ship in all of 7 minutes after leaving the car. There was no lines anywhere, we walked through security, got our ship cards, and walked on the boat. ...

The last cruise we were on was on an Oceania ship. We were spoiled and were not expecting that much from Princess. We were pleasantly surprised as it was lovely. The food on Princess is not as yummy as Oceania but everything was pretty good. The turkey dinner on Thanksgiving was surprisingly good considering how many people ordered it. We chose this cruise because our kids live in San ...

We had never seen the Panama Canal and this time worked well with our schedule. The shipboard entertainment in the evening was varied and of good quality. We particularly enjoyed the violinist and piano duo of Consonance and the choice of comedians, musicians and singers were excellent for such a small ship. The food was very good at all meals and at times excellent. The excursions were a mixed ...

Last time on the Grand Princess

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We choose this cruise for a couple of reasons. First, it was going to Hawaii during our anniversary and second, we wanted a step up from Carnival. Step up it wasn't. Let me say that we will give Princess another try, just not on the Grand Princess. This ship needs to retire with all the issues it had with water leaks, toilet not flushing and not just your room toilets which was so un-sanitizing, ...

Great for a long voyage but on-board activities were lacking

Review for Noordam to South Pacific

Firstly, we had an amazing 34 night voyage. The crew and friends we made were the best part of the trip. The dining room, restaurants, shops, bars, casino and all of the staff working in these areas were wonderful and we wouldn't change very much at all. Our cabin was excellent, although the Neptune Suite on the Noordam is no better or worse than the Owners Suite on Royal Caribbean ships we ...

I would rate the Noordam excellent for the stewards responsible for room, dining, and buffet. The ship was clean, food good and service excellent. BB King club was great. The itinerary, weather and seas were perfect for us. The problem with our balcony. An outside vent was so strong in odor we couldn't open the door for even a moment. After twelve days they finally covered it with tape and plastic ...

Worst Cruise Ever for Us

Review for Queen Elizabeth to South Pacific

We recently (3/3/2015) returned from a 22 day cruise on the Cunard Queen Elizabeth (QE) . The cruise was the San Francisco to Sidney, Australia segment of their around the world cruise. We truly expected to enjoy the ultimate in cruises but experienced one that was well below average. Actually it was the WORST cruise we have experienced. Based on this experience, we will never, ever go on a Cunard ...

Review for Arcadia to South Pacific

We have just returned from a cruise on the Arcadia - San Francisco to Sydney - and to say we were disappointed is an understatement. Having sailed on the last world voyage of the Oriana in 2012 from Brisbane to San Francisco, we were expecting a similar fabulous experience. The Arcadia had little to offer in the way of entertainment, shops and service. It is widely known that once on board you ...

A disappointing experience

After two nights in San Francisco we boarded Arcadia for our voyage through the Pacific to Sydney. First impression was that the staff looked worn out. I do understand that change-over days are hectic & tiring for them all. All went reasonably well for the first four days & the food was quite acceptable but then my wife developed what we were to find out was called "Arcadia Cough", I got it a ...
