Great Relaxing and Fun Cruise

Jan 4th, 2020

We had a great time and met some wonderful people from all over. This cruise met our expectations based on past experiences with Princess. Each cruise has had differences in entertainment and food, but none as been 'bad.' The food wasn't highest on the list with Princess Cruises, but it was not the worst we've experienced. We certainly never went hungry. As always, the staff was top notch, and a major reason why we stick with Princess. We did have issues - delays on tenders, power went out and engines stopped for a short time one evening, and terrible delays on embarkation and disembarkation - but all in all everything was great. Sadly, the biggest drawback to this cruise came from other passengers. There were times where I had to walk away not to listen. Everyone has things that are not up to their liking, but when people try to band together to get others to be angry with them, it just makes those people miserable. Yes, things happened. No need to whine or let it ruin your cruise. If I did that I would gotten angry at least 3 times a day when people tried to get on the elevator before others got off. I just shook my head, no sense in getting frustrated at lack of etiquette. And it was refreshing to see a Princess employee tell a passenger to use tongs and stop touching the bananas, lol. As I stated earlier, we had a great time. And though it wasn't always perfect, it was always relaxing, worth the money, and better than being at work. .

What a Disappointment!!

Dec 29th, 2019

A true disappointment - very poor food. We did an excursion in every port - disembarking to the busses terribly disorganized, very poor value on the actual excursion. The housekeeping staff was excellent. The restaurant staff ran from excellent to incompetent. The internet was nonexistent - they actually refunded 1/2 of what everyone paid. They should have refunded all of the charges. I won't rule out Princess but I have kept the name of the Captain, the Executive Chef and the Food & Beverage Director and will not sail on a Princess ship that employees them.

Aloha Princess

Dec 27th, 2019

A big ship that made us relax and enjoy my wife’s 50th birthday at sea. Loved the sea days to and from Hawaii. Enjoyed the cruise overall and Liza by the pool was great. Pizza by the pool was awesome and we enjoyed watching movies on the big screen. All staff made a effort to make the cruise enjoyable but it’s not a party ship and the food was ok but not amazing. cabins are dated but clean and practical. Hawaii was awesome as were shore excursions and our time in Ensenada was fun as well.

Relaxing cruise with great food and spa services.

Dec 26th, 2019

A great cruise for relaxing due to several at sea days. The spa was superior with excellent massage therapists. The only downside was the pressure to buy product.

The cruise was interesting and relaxing. The ship was old and wasn’t innovated with new technology. Eventhough the cruise catered to elderly people, we did enjoy ourselves.

If you enjoy smaller older ships, the cruise was relaxing, informative and enjoyable.
