Sail Date: Feb 2019
Cabin: Balcony

This cruise started out badly. We had to stand outside in the wind and heavy rain to check our bags, then were ushered into a cold tent where we had to wait 3 1/2 HOURS to board! Princess did not take any responsibility for their problems and did nothing to compensate us for the terrible experience. Don't think we will use Princess again.

We chose this cruise because we wanted the sea days and were looking forward to warm weather in Hawaii and on the way. Unfortunately, there were storms coming and going so we were not able to sit around the pool or use our balcony.

There were very few things to do on the sea days in the afternoon. Most of the lectures were at 9 or 10 in the morning and we weren't up that early. It just didn't seem to be up to the quality we expected of Princess.

Cabin Review


Cabin B4

The bed was really comfortable and the huge closet space was a plus. Our balcony was very nice, but given the cool weather for half of the cruise, not really useful. We did wish they had a loveseat in the room instead of just one straight chair. It was kind of tiring sitting on the bed to read and watch television.
