Review summary

We’ve travel with Princess Cruises before and haven’t been disappointed. The crew, entertainment and 24 hour food is great! Already planning next cruise to Panama Canal in a couple years.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Very organized and swift. Less than 20 minutes from waiting in line to arriving on ship.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Food was great most of time. Buffets food was mixed around so you weren’t served the same evert day. Fruits were fresh and sweet especially the pineapple. Alcoholic drinks were a little light on alcohol at times.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Hot tubs could have been hotter. Fitness area was great, plenty of cardiovascular equipment and weights.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Great shows and nature programs. Tiki Dave was very knowledgeable about the Hawaiian islands and plays a mean steel guitar. With his wife Elualoha, the duet Elua played great Hawaiian music and hula dancing. Anne Burgess was great tithe her knowledge of marine and wildlife in and around Hawai’i.

Children's Programs

Hardly any children on this cruise.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff went out of their way to provide us with what we needed. If someone didn’t like the meal they were served the staff offered other options.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Breakdowns with the plumbing was major concern. Staff always out cleaning and keeping ship in order.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Room always clean and fresh linen. Missed animals out of towels though. Balcony was great for that extra space.

Disembarkation

Had Cruise Line take us to airport, well worth it. Disembarking was quick and easy. No hassles with declaring liquors. Had early flight and got to airport in plenty of time 😀
