Disappointed in Princess
"Very unhappy with Amalfi dining room. Changed to Portofino which was much better for service and food quality. Princess seems to nickel and dime for too many things - soda, bottled water. No longer offers happy..."Read More

We've cruised with Princess before and four other cruise lines. We have Princess as our vacation of choice. We actually have done this cruise before on the Grand Princess. And, will be sailing on the Star Princess at least three more times before she is reassigned later this year. When living in France and Singapore we went with local cruise lines, but they didn't compare to Princess in terms ...

We did the Hawaii cruise. The entertainment and activities offered were second to none. Our shore excursions were excellent. The accommodations on excursions made the overall experience very memorable. The embarkation and disembarkation process was very smooth. The dining experience was one of the highlights of the cruise. Great food but even greater service by the staff. Overall, I would ...

This cruise was for a very special occasion for 15 days to the Hawaiian Islands. On bording the ship the exterior was running with rust streaks and large dents on the outside.This did not look good as first impression. I had been upgraded to a fantastic cabin I was told. The cabin straight away smelt musty and looked tired with old furniture. The valance around the bed was dirty and my bed sheets ...

Princess Service is no longer Excellent

In the past, the culture of Princess Service was Excellent. All members of the staff used the word excellent frequently. On the Star, I did not hear the word excellent one time from a staff member. Princess' culture of excellent service does not exist on Star. Perhaps it is because the ship is being sold (there if much deferred maintenance to show current staff knows this - leaky plumbing with ...

We felt that this cruise was the perfect blend of relaxation and travel. Unlike a transatlantic crossing, the ports were buffered on either side by sea days. I've included a detailed review of our room in the ratings. Embarkation We flew into Burbank around 11 am and took a 45 minute Lyft ride to the ship. Embarkation took less than 20 minutes, and we appreciated that the main dining room ...

Old ship, too much time coming and going

We chose Princess to see Hawaii. Our most desired stop in Kauai was cancelled due to weather letting us down hard. Then we spent 5 days (5 windy cold days) returning to N America to visit Ensenada, a marginal town at best. Why not spend another day in Hawaii or San Diego not Ensenada) The old ship ( due for refurb in April) is dated and needing paint. The wifi was awful and expensive ( shouldnt ...

We wanted to visit Hawaii, and at the same time, renew our wedding vows. We love sea days and this cruise had many. From the moment we came aboard we had a terrific experience. Now, truth be told, the Star is far from the pride of the Princess fleet. It is showing its age with rust lines all over, leaking ceilings in many places, older carpet in passageways, and so forth, but the crew worked hard ...

This was to be a get away to make up for a trip that ended because of a family tradgedy. The ship was fine, but the extra amenities were lacking. We tried the special dining at the steak house and the porterhouse was chewy and the filet mignon that replaced it was not much better. The wine package was not adequately explained and could only be used in a specific dining venue. There were only a ...

We chose this cruise because we had never been on a cruise or to Hawaii so we figured we would kill to birds with one stone. We had a fabulous time. The crew was absolutely great! DJ Lovely, Molly, and Coco, to name a few were the absolute best! We loved doing the activities the music trivia and regular trivia was wonderful. But it was to hard to do everything. The ship excursions were to ...
