Beautiful ship, GREAT ports, GREAT activities in ports, mediocre customer service. by alandunn

Ports of Call: The ports were well chosen with numerous excursions available. My wife and I along with our friends, the McGinnis’, took advantage of several excursions, including the train ride in Skagway, the 5-glacier float-plane excursions in Juneau, and the Totems & Eagles boat sightseeing in Ketchikan. Each of these was superbly organized by the onboard excursions desk. Each exceeded our expectations. Customer Service: It was the shipboard customer service that came up substantially short. Most ship employees seemed to have a minimalist effort work ethic, with most of them unwilling or incapable of solving the smallest of problems. Their attitudes were not something I would expect even at a Hampton Inn (Hilton property), much less a 1st rate cruising company like Princess Cruises. Everyone in our party (4 adults) remarked that it appeared as though an employee morale problem existed… or perhaps the employees really were not capable or authorized to solve even the smallest of customers’ problems. I am not a stranger to complex systems and complex organizations. I full-well understand the complexities of managing customer service and the myriad of logistics challenges on a ship. What I don’t understand is why the majority of onboard employees were unwilling to go 1-inch out of their way to assist in little problems. Please understand that there was NO ONE large problem on this cruise… just a never-ending series of little problems… little problems that on one was empowered to solve without someone else’s authorization

As a veteran of many cruises, this was very disappointing. In general, the service was poor and surly, especially in the ding rooms and specialty resturants. The lost our reservation for Sabatini’s and refused to compensate us even though we prepaid. Skip the Island Princess.

Good cruise, overall, except that Princess decided to substitute a stop in Ensenada for a stop in Nicaragua, due civil to unrest in Managua, which is about 300 miles from del Sur.

Choose the early dinner seating and ask to share table with at least 4 other guests. You will make new friends and spend the dining time sharing experiences. Take a shawl (or dress warmer) when dining. Don't miss any of the shows and get your seat 30 minutes early to be able to get a seat.

If you have a chance to meet the guys at the egg station... they will make you a great breakfast.

Aug 12, 2014

If you want to see the shows in Princess Theater, opt for the 1st seating for dinner.
