Overall, we had a pleasant cruise. In all fairness I do hold Princess to a higher standard than, say, NCL. We got the distinct feeling we were dealing with a crew where most were in training. They lacked ...

A great cruise but had to play toilet roulette

The cruise was fabulous. Truly magical! My only complaint was that sometimes the toilet flushed and sometimes it did not. It was a system wide problem and Princess compensated us for our trouble. Still, it was ...

I wanted to see Hawaii. Husband does not like to fly, and this was a round trip Los Angeles. Embarkation was a breeze (got there at noon). We ususally do not check our bags and just carry them on ourselves. ...
