Great Hawaiian cruise

Had a wonderful time on board and in ports. We would have liked a little more time at each port but overall this was a great cruise.

Not as nice as the cruise to Alaska but acceptable. Needs better and more entertainment. More diverse food at buffet.

Customs and boarding in Vancouver were the pits. Excessive delays and standing in line (even for Elite Passengers). Princess lodges in Alaska were superb--especially Kenai.

Nice Mexican Riviera cruise

Nov 20th, 2018

Overall disappointed with the ship. Exterior shows lots of rust and interior is tired and needs updating. Most of the cruise staff are just OK. Best staff members were at the Crooners bar.

Lots of Things We're Off

Nov 20th, 2018

Weather was great! Ports were good. Casino smoke was overwhelming; blend into Piazza. Future Cruise Consultant was insulting. Cabin layout was excellent. Crown Grill was good. Cruise cards wouldn't work for first few days; had to keep going back to front desk

I read several reviews before I left and was concerned about the negative ones. They're true. Ship looks tired, upholstered chairs need to be thrown overboard / stained & dirty. Carpet in cabin needs replacement. Beds are tired from so many bodies sleeping on it. Food at best mediocre. Smoke from casino permeates into lobby-unacceptable. Coffee undrinkable, lacking in body or taste. Learned from fellow passenger he brings his own Peet's coffee b/c he's sailed w/Princess before. Best positive comment is dining staff work very hard to make your sailing experience pleasurable. My suggestion to firm is eliminate the Princess brand b/c it was Carnival all the way. I won't sail w/Princess again. One has to pay extra for a peaceful place escaping the loud music or blaring sound from movie played in pool area. Sanctuary space requires $40 to use their cushioned lounge chairs or to find the only quiet outdoor space. Really ?? Pay extra for a cup of higher quality coffee. Really ??..Sorry readers of this review putting a blemish on any plans you have for this specific cruise.
