We have cruised with several other lines but always come back to our favorite - Princess This was our 10th with Princess and as always total relaxation and enjoyable. I was in a wheel chair for the first time in my life and bypassing the normal lines was terrific. I wrote Princess prior too the cruise and advised we were celebrating our 42nd anniversary, however there was absolutely no ...

Trip to Hawaii in great storms

Chose this because dates lined up perfectly with kids school break. Also a desire to go to Hawaii. It was made much more difficult due to a sick passenger, and returning to Honolulu 2 days after leaving. Add to that very high seas/winds and big storms making it difficult to enjoy the ship. Cruise did not stop in mexico as planned, and still returned far later than planned. Absolutely ...

My family and friends took the Grand Princess on a 15 night New Years cruise. The idea of leaving out of our home port (San Francisco) and visiting Hawaii was quite enticing. My ten-year-old is a Love Boat freak (really), so when my travel agent called and said there was a sale on this itinerary, we jumped on it. Unfortunately, we had the worst cruise that we have ever experienced. However, I am ...

Food Selection and Quality Has Gone Downhill But Service was Outstanding

I was on the Grand Princess 2 years ago with friends and family and everybody was surprised how good the food was. This time however the menu and quality have deteriorated so much that it is the worst out of over 30 cruises I've been on. Hamburger instead of steak is now on the everyday dining room dinner menu. Menu lacks variety such as pork belly multiple times and salmon on both sides of ...

We chose this cruise for the departure port and itinerary, but I wouldn’t change anything. The ship is older and doesn’t have all the wizz bang features of the new ships, but that’s not why you cruise to Alaska. I didn’t notice any maintenance issues or problems with cleanliness. No funny sewerage smells or problems with air conditioning. Our stateroom was always clean and very comfortable. The ...

The ship is veru old and dated. The bathroom in the cabin was not cleaned well and smell of urine after a few days. The disembarkment was very disorganized. Staff were not available to give instructions or answer questions. The entertainment was lacking and the variety of entertainment was disappointing. The sheets and pillow cases were not changed the entired ten days of the cruise. The ...

Great cruise, poor stateroom, long wait times

Princess should be ashamed of the long waits at embarkation, the buffet, the Pub Lunch (couldn't make it in), and photo services (an hour and a half)! Amazing cruise director, main dining room, and room steward staff plus itinerary compensate, but there is no excuse for that. Also, I paid more for the ability to stream over the internet, except the internet was so slow that I couldn't stream ...

This was our 25th cruise, 5th on Princess and 3rd on the Grand Princess. My wife and I have cruised all the major mass market cruise lines, Carnival, Princess, HAL, Norwegian, RCCL and Celebrity. We cruise just to be on the ship, not for ports or itineraries. We enjoy relaxing, reading, looking out at the ocean, entertainment and good food. We are basically cruise potatoes. I provide this ...
