Fun and relaxing itinerary. The untraditional stops in La Paz and Loreto were great. Dining staff in Club Class were the best we ever had in a cruise. All other staff was great. We seen the Captain making inspection rounds twice a day.

Overall ok, but wouldn't go with star again, too many long days at sea with not much to do

Nice and relaxing for the most part. In my own personal opinion I thought it was maybe three or four days too long.

Very disappointing for a family with young children

Jan 7th, 2020

This ship / cruise / itinerary and the associated activities are clearly geared toward the older crowd. Other than the kid's club which had very limited hours of operating, there was nothing for the children to do and all entertainment and amenities are geared toward the older crowd. The Hawaiian ports of call were fantastic, but Ensenada was dirty, polluted, and a huge disappointment. I wouldn't bother to get off the ship in Ensenada. The cabin had a deep, musty, moldy smell and we all developed a cough and sinus issues by about the 3rd/4th day which persisted for the remainder of the cruise. The whole staff was exceptionally polite and helpful so I feel bad for them about leaving a bad review, but this cruise, and I suspect Princess cruises in general, is geared toward senior couples and not young families. The pool was very deep, small, and no life guard was ever on duty so young children can't really use it. All of the shows and activities were also geared for the older crowds and the kids really had nothing to do for the duration of the cruise. The 4 Hawaiian port days were great, but the 10+ sea days were painfully boring. The food was just okay, but it was so limited. Net message, if you have a young family, choose just about any other cruise line or itinerary. We won't be sailing on Princess again until we are in adult diapers.

Great Alaskan Adventure!

Jan 5th, 2020

This was our first cold water cruise. We have always gone to the warmer climates. I had no idea what to expect. It was amazing. I would recommend it to anyone. Alaska is stunning & something to see.

Acceptable, but did not meet expectations. The ship was old and did not compare with other ships. The staff were excellent!

Excellent Hawaiian cruise.

Great ship but library is limited , no books except those from passengers. Excursion room too large and is mostly empty. It would have been a great place for the library and game room.

The worst cruise I have ever taken.

Dec 23rd, 2019

We have decided to never take another cruise without doing more “ homework” . The average age of the ship passengers was too old...not enough activities for active people. Not enough time spent on each island. The only plus we can think of is one of the bar stewards...Josan Abraham. He made us feel welcome and comfortable. The costs on board ship were”pricy”. After paying for a cruise, paying for water and other drinks exorbitant!

Hawaii dec 2019

This was a good cruise. Generally the staff were helpful and pleasant. I have issues with relaxing (always feel guilty) and the 9 sea days made it more acceptable to my wacky personality to just get some down time. I think port days should be extended to a later departure time. The Honolulu day was kind of fun too as much of the crew was allowed to go to shore and there was a very celebratory atmosphere that day. Our room steward Joseph was fabulous.
