"Before you embark on a cruise check the itineraryand the entertainment to see if it's going to be full of very old people. This cruise definitely catered for the zimmer brigade, even the night club was playing..."Read More

Anytime Dining was great - excellent wait staff, especially head waiter Joaquim. Wasn't as impressed at the Lido. In fact, the drinks service at the Lido seemed to dwindle markedly towards the end of the cruise. Medallion Class and associated apps were excellent. Particularly loved the 'find my friend' service on the app. Cabin steward was such a hard worker and so friendly - thank you ...

Most of the cruise was fine with the exception of some staffing issues. Bar staff were awful, it was difficult to get a drink a lot of the time, shore tours staff couldn't care less and didn't really know what they were selling. Restaurant staff and cabin stewards were excellent and could not be faulted. Not a lot of activities for teens and the staff in the kids club were hit and ...

Two families...itinerary and timing suited. Had a wonderful time.. Some highlights - Princess do ship board entertainment really well, the shows each night were varied and fantastic. Poolside food - Pizza, Tacos, Burgers were BRILLIANT! Dining room food choice & quality met expectations... Only disappointment on any level was Horizons Cafe (May be spoilt having been on Holland America -their ...

Worse Princess Cruise EVER!!!

What was to be a celebration of our birthdays turned out to be the worse cruise we ever sailed with Princess! We are platinum members and have never experienced such rude and brusque attitudes from crew members from all of our travels! From a RUDE Maitre'd---who made me cry and kept walking by looking at me and never attempted to address the situation, to rudely being awoken at 5am with hammering ...

Overall, it was a great cruise, probably one of the friendliest crew we have ever experienced. Positives: 1. Great crew. Very friendly especially at all the bars. 2. Very comfortable bed. 3. Free room service, very decent menu and you now order through the TV. Very timely service. 4. Great variety of entertainment. 5 very smooth and efficient embarkation and disembarkation. ...

We wanted to visit some areas of NZ within the comfort of a cruise ship. We chose Princess as the itinerary suited the time we wanted to go. The interior of the ship was lovely. There had been a refurbishment in 2018. Lovely new carpets throughout and some new furniture. While we were on this cruise the Medallion was introduced. It was in the testing phase so we had to carry our cruise ...

We decided to have a family cruise with our grandchildren and this cruise fitted our guidelines the best. The two youngest grandchildren love Kids Club and the older teenagers enjoyed the entertainment, pools, quizzes, shows, etc. All were kept entertained throughout the cruise. We enjoyed the Ports of Call and even though our itinerary was changed because of the cyclone, the alternate port ...

First ever cruise with princess line, all I can say is that we were very disappointed from start to finish. The list is to long for me to write about, it started from getting on the boat until we disembarked. The room was great, the food was a joke !! I don’t think I’ll ever travel on the princess line again . Have been on many other cruises before but this one was a huge ...

Chose a 3 day cruise as it is my first time. Really enjoyed it. The entertainment was superb. Just wanted a short trip to revitalise ourselves and it was perfect. Fabulously friendly staff who were a lot of fun. Highly recommended. Food was beautiful. Next time we'd try the restaurants as well. Pools were clean. Rooms cleaned, beds turned back curtains closed every day. Free pizza fries ice creams ...
