My husband and I chose this cruise for New Years Eve and the fact that it was sailing to the ABC islands- which all three were very nice. A breath of fresh air compared to the other carribean destinations. The ...

Overall a great experience with only a few rough spots

Overall we are very pleased with the way things went. We were apprehensive about what we'd face upon arriving in Lima. All went very well. The Delta flights from home and connection for ATL-LIM went well. We ...

Did not like this ship at all !!

I really don't have many good things to say about this ship ..I did enjoy the ports .. it was nice to 'escape' from the ship. However,there were far too many sea days where we could not get out on deck due to the ...

Pre & post tour transfers & hotels were, as usual, excellent. Maybe Princess should take notes on how to handle their most valued assets, (their customers) from these organizations! It all started off on the ...

Cruise OK on the whole but paired with a very bad tour of South America

This cruise was part of a longer trip with tours at the beginning and the end "organised" by Wendy Wu and booked through Cruise.co.uk. The tour parts of the trip were a disappointing shambles so the cruise became ...

Having cruised 29 times with Princess, this was the poorest cruise.

Don't ever ask for Any Time Dining on a Princess ship. They will only accept seating at 5:30 or 8:15. We asked for 6 PM and told they won't accept a reservation for that time. Told we could come down and stand in ...
