We took this cruise because of the itinerary to Hawaii. Embarkation/ Disembarkation: Getting on was very easy and orderly due to the schedule given before hand. Did the self-disembarkation. Very good and no crowds. For those not sure about disembarkation: If taking the scheduled disembarkation, luggage must be out in the hallway at suppertime the night prior. Everyone must be out of their ...

It’s not what you want to think about. But it is really important. Our 10 year old developed acute appendicitis in Nicuragua ( of all places ) the onboard medics did an amazing job and assisted us in getting our sick child to a hospital where she had surgery that night Their quick thinking and ability to make decesions quickly meant our doctor was diagnosed disembarked and taken to hospital ...

We had been living in in Chile for about 7 weeks and found this cruise. Actually cheaper than flying (before on-board stuff). Great leisurely way to get back to the states. Since we had been in Chile and have been to Costa Rica a few times and Nicaragua, we were not interested in excursions to I can't speak to any of those. This was our 4th sailing with Princess. Crew was always ...

Mid march is a great time to get away from a long dreary winter. If you seek a little adventure then I would suggest you sail on the 16 night Andes and South America cruise. We opted to fly in to Santiago and take the Princess transfer to the port of San Antonio. We rode on a modern air conditioned bus. The ride was about an hour and a half. We had no washroom so you may want to use a ...

Chose cruise for route and timing availability. Food was acceptable, bar staff good. Some dining room staff were rather surly and acting as if they were near the end of their contract and had no intention in renewing their contract. Had the same annoying art auctions as Carnival. Pushing notion that if you were savvy enough to buy their art onboard, it would enhance your image as being a ...

The dinning room experience was good.. Great service. Food served hot. We thought the food was good. Quantities are a bit less but that is ok as one can always request a second plate. With back to back cruises the menus were repeated but still good choices. The onboard entertainment was a good mix however some shows were repeated because of the back to back cruises. The under the stars ...

Never again! Have sailed many times with Holland America, and also with Cunard and Viking. First time with Princess - and this will be the last time, also. Many Princess cruisers said this was not like previous cruises - much worse - and think it may be Carnival Corporation's doing. Terribly disorganized ship, inedible (literally inedible!) food served in dining room, staff bickering ...

The activity staff was great on the ship with Trivia and games 2 times a day. The ship did not have enough interesting enrichment sessions except for fellow passengers who did the bike ride from northern Alaska to bottom of South America. Their presentation was amazing! The food on the cruise was just ok with dinners taking over 2 hours due to delays in the kitchen. We did enjoy the ...

We enjoyed the itinerary and had a good time. But, as usual with Princess, the food varied widely from excellent to terrible. The first week, the food in the main dining room was really high quality. Then it went downhill during the second week. The food in the buffet was consistently poor throughout, by the way. Can't recommend eating there unless you're in a rush. Princess needs to get some ...
