Had one of the worst starts to cruise with over 90 minutes waiting in various line ups for embarkation. So slow that they had to delay lifeboat drill as the line up was still very long at 3pm when normally everyone is onboard. Appears staff were still in training mode. No Princess staff outside of building, only Port Police. Lots of older people with clear handicaps were waiting in long lines. We ...

Princes is not the Equal to Royal Caribbean

OMG, over 700 kids and over 500 from South America. But that is just a holiday cruise. The real issue is that they bill themselves as a equal to Royal Caribbean and they are not. She is a nice ship, they are for the most part good staff, but all the little niceties are missing. Along with the cruise director? Was there one on board? The food was good 4 out of 7 nights, the steak house is ...

Left from Houston with 9 others (5 veranda cabins) for our 7 day cruise to Cozumel, Roatan & Belize on November 30, 2014. I had gone on this same cruise two times before (last year) and my husband had gone once before. Upon arrival at the terminal we quickly realized that we were on a floating old-folks home. There were countless walkers, scooters and wheelchairs. The embarkation was pretty ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 60s

We went on our 1st cruise on the Princess Caribbean. It was great. Our last cruise was on the Emerald. When we arrived at the terminal it was a nightmare to park and board, We stood in line for over 3 hours just to check in. When we finally got on the ship they immediately had a muenster drill and everyone was starving and very tired. Did not find the crew very informative or friendly. They seemed ...

I just returned today from 5 days on the Emerald out of Houston. I am elite status and I have to say it was the worst cruise I have ever taken on any cruise line. The ship stinks. Your room, the elevators and the bathroom smell. The Princess singers and dancers were not very talented. The activities were minimal. Not enough to do. Mainly free karoke, and bingo. The food has really gone down in ...

We were scheduled to depart Houston for a 5 night cruise at 4:00pm on November 11th. This was our very FIRST Princess cruise. We have taken several other cruises with 4 other cruise lines. We arrived early at the terminal - about 11:15am because it looked like it was about to rain. We booked a mini-suite, so we had early embarkation at 12:00. They opened the doors at 11:45 because it had started ...

We sailed on the Salute to Veterans cruise, Nov. 5-9, 2013 out of Houston, TX. This was the first cruise to sail from the Houston Bayport Terminal. We arrived in Houston two nights before embarkation, so we could see some of the sights of Houston. We stayed at a Candlewood Suites, which was convenient to the port, and had shopping and restaurants within walking distance. We visited Kemah Boardwalk ...
