Hawaiian Cruise

Jan 18th, 2020

All in all a Great Cruise. A little cool on sea days but what do you want in January. Also we did get sick on our last day of the cruise, seems to be the flu. All better now. So please wash your hands all the time on the ship.

My first and definitely not last Alaska cruise

Jan 17th, 2020

We had a great first experience in Alaska. We booked another trip there as soon as we got home. Each tour we took was unique and a great experience. I have no complaints whatsoever about the ship or itinerary. I can’t wait to go back

Grand Princess Hawaii was better than Star Princess Hawaii

Jan 17th, 2020

Princess highly values its "elite" members. If you are not "elite" (151+ days of cruising on Princess), you are treated fine, but not like the "elite" people. This was even more overt on the Star Princess. I definitely enjoyed this Grand Princess cruise better than the last Princess cruise on the Star. The staff was friendly. The bar staff was wonderful. Food could be tastier, but wasn't bad. We all enjoyed the stromboli. The ship rocked quite a bit a few days, but that does not bother us. The weather was chilly many of the days. People wore coats every day except a couple that we were actually in Hawaii. Teen club was too full of drama for my kids who tended to say away. More free activities where you do/make things would have been welcome. Ukulele and hula were fun sea day activities. However, when I took hula on the last cruse with a different teacher, she instructed in different moves. Having to relearn new moves for the same songs was annoying.

June 2019 on the Grand to Alaska

Jan 8th, 2020

Cruising on the Grand is always a delight. Of course it's the destination - Alaska - that you're there for. It was a delightful trip with really good weather, mild temperatures and no rain. I find I can't really complain about much...

Some minor upgrades on Grand Princess

Jan 1st, 2020

Way too many seniors for this 15-night Cruise. Nothing wrong with it, but the activities and game shows would have been more fun with more middle-aged passengers and youngsters

Great First Time Cruise

Jan 1st, 2020

We got a good price and upgrade within the same class of staterooms when we booked through <img class='agent-replacement' src='/images/hideagent.png'>. Our first cruise turns out to exceed our expectations. Other agents may have offered rebates or on board benefits , but if we come across similar discounts with upgrades for our future trips, it may be worth sticking with <img class='agent-replacement' src='/images/hideagent.png'>.

“Frozen”

Dec 31st, 2019

Inside ship temperature was kept at a 63 degree. It was very cold to the point that we had to keep our winter jackets on. The inside pool was heated but my child was uncomfortable using it due to the cold air. Will not cruise on Princess again.

Unpleasantly surprised

Dec 27th, 2019

It is a credit to Princess that I was shocked by the poor service and bad food because it means that their reputation precedes them.
