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..."Read More

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 Crown Princess is old but grand in size. Not oversized, but it is large. It was a sold out cruise which makes the trip somewhat of a struggle. Our balcony cabin was fine. Nothing ...

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 delighted in seeing the lights of the canal across the Panamanian isthmus. In Lima, as we exited the bureaucratic entry containment area into the public reception area, there at 1:15am was a ...

The cruise itinerary is pretty unique, starting at Valparaiso , then around the Cape ,into Buenos Aires and Rio, Salvador and onto the Caribbean. We spent 2 days in Santiago before we embarked, embarkation was an unorganised Shambles, a strike by Chilean dock staff delayed passengers getting off and passengers getting on - no input from Princess just very poorly organised chaos, and the chaos ...

We choose this cruise based on the itinerary. Never having been to South America we enjoyed the ports. We chose Princess excursions and for the most part they delivered what they promised. Before boarding we were driven around Santiago and Valparaiso for an hour to our distress; only later as we arrived at the port terminal did we learn the port workers were on strike and the embarkation ...

All was excellent. The cabin, the entreteinment and the food. We felt so happy to join this cruise. The ports where so interesting. We bought some tous on board. We stayed alone at some other ports. And we hired an independent tour agency and guide in other ports like Buenos Aires (big city!!!ports - -punta arenas and ushuaia tours were fine, but scenery was old hat to those of us lucky enough ...

We like long cruises and this was a back to back cruise starting in Valparaiso, Chile and ending Fort Lauderdale, Florida. We have taken 20+ cruises and this was the only one that we have EVER complained about. Princess has lower the entire experience of cruising. They do not make the experience special anymore now you just a number!!!! We chose anytime dining and the service was great but ...

Port troubles and pushy add-on sales tarnished an otherwise great trip.

Itinerary round Horn was the attraction and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Good fellow passengers being a healthy mix - lots of British, Australians and Canadians. The crew were, as always it seems, excellent, cheerful, friendly and always willing to help. Entertainment was quite good overall. The destinations speaker was excellent, humorous and informative. Cannot say the same for the ...

This was our 16th cruise, 9th on Princess. We sailed from Valparaiso, Chile around Cape Horn to Buenos Aires, Argentina. We flew into Santiago Chile and spent one night in Valparaiso before boarding the ship. Embarkation was very chaotic. A strike by port workers that day prevented taxis from entering the port so we were dropped at stop where a shuttle bus would take us into the port, which ...

Our cruise was from Santiago (Valparaiso) to Buenos Aires via Cape Horn and the Falkland Islands in late February. It provided a break between land trips to Machu Picchu, in Peru, and the Iguassu Falls on the Argentine / Brazil border, which were the main reasons for visiting South America. Having mentioned the reason for us taking the cruise, it would be remiss not to mention Machu Picchu and ...
