Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Balcony

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 wifi be free in 2020). The Gym is small, only two Specialty restaurants ( changing the menu does not constitute another restaurant).

Entertainment, educational talks and casual bar food and drinks were great. Senior officers were aloof and unfriendly, the Captain was rarely seen and never heard. Older waiters weren't very helpful but the younger new ones were very enthusiastic. The cabin was small and had 1 chair and small table. When it could be used the balcony was nice.

We have cruised on two other lines and had 4 great experiences. This was not

Cabin Review


Dated and too small. There was only one chair so someone had to sit on the bed. Cabin service was great. Room service always on time.
