10 Reasons to Avoid Princess Cruises (Cruise Review)





We recommend avoiding Princess Cruises based on our experience on the Crown Princess in April 2017. All issues were communicated to Princess Cruises customer service on board and/or post-cruise and were not effectively resolved.

The Crown Princess received the lowest CDC Vessel Sanitation Score in its history the month we sailed. It was clear why every day that we were onboard, and no excuses for Princess are needed. Please see the inspection:

DISCLOSURE: WE DO NOT WORK FOR NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE. WE WERE NOT PAID FOR OUR OPINIONS. ALL OF OUR OPINIONS ARE TRUTHFUL AND ARE OUR OWN. WE MADE THIS VIDEO ON THE SHIP – IT WAS EXACTLY HOW WE FELT AT THE TIME. WE WERE UNABLE TO GET OFF THE SHIP – IT WAS A TRANSATLANTIC CRUISE.

  1. If as you say, you always do a lot of planning, how come all the problems you mentioned you did not note in your pre-cruise planning?

  3. You can say what you want, it looks like you work for NCL.
    Besides when I went with them it was really good.

  4. Sounds like you need to go back and Cruise on Norwegian. Plus, I think it comes with age and maturity but if I walked into my room and had the same problem as you did I would be complaining to the room steward and tell them fix it now. I’ve never had rude staff on any of my Princess Cruises however, I have had very rude passengers. I know that for Princess Cruise they are usually geared for people 50 and older and you seem much younger so you probably should go on a different cruise line.πŸ˜‰πŸ›³

  5. I have Elite status with Princess and my experience with them has been extremely positive or I wouldn't be sailing with them. Nothing in this world is perfect but a Princess cruise comes pretty close. I think you can't trash Princess because of 1 cruise experience. A lot of what they say is either not true or a result of their own stupidity. The ship likely was a little ragged as it was up for refurb the next year. I like Princess for exactly the reasons you don't, its a classier, mature crowd not interested in adolescent behavious or activities. Please go back to NCL or Carnival. Please now, go!

  10. Princess is not for young people. 40 years old and younger. Princess is for customers that are at least 50 years old, and are not traveling with children. If you wanted a fun ship, go back to Norwegian, or try Carnival. Carnival is different even though Carnival owns Princess as well.

  11. You can only have a private romantic dinner, if you have a balcony as part of your room.

  12. They each continually interrupt each other. Very rude. No respect for each other.
    He seems to want to move on to the next item on their list, and she wants to talk at greater length about each item.

  13. Why do you have to wait for the buffet to open? I thought that the buffet was open 24 hours a day. Isnt that one of things that people like about cruise ships?

  16. One nevending whine fest. Very fine wines indeed. Irony is that I've cruised with both NCL and Princess and found Princess alot better.

  17. Ok, you two. Where is the proof about the hair in your room. If it was that bad I would have taken photos and I would have complained to the cabin attendant. You did not take photos or comment you made any complaints. Re the toilet, keep the toilet lid closed as it should be. You both sound like spoiled whinging brats. If you want a Disneyland type experience go on a Disney ship. If you, young lady, did your research as you said you do, you would have realised that Princess Cruises do not have all the water slides and the like that other ships have. Re the game shows, why would you want to watch someone on a stage doing a game show as opposed to participating with, as you called it, bits of paper. The trivial games are great fun and test your knowledge, but oh maybe the knowledge part is problem for you. BTW the quick shot of the game show on the Norwegian ship showed very few people in the seats, hmmm I wonder why. End of my rant.

  18. what? a badly cut tomato and a leaf a lettuce was to big???? I am sitting here trying to hear the entire video. Of course you have a right to voice your opinion but OMG I feel like I am listening to a couple of two year olds. I think you should definitely use a different cruise ship. Please. I couldn't imagine bumping into you people. Sorry you where bored . Try Carnival……there are so many people drinking and there are a lot of young people having the time of their life. You obviously are not used to a certain class of people/cruise But I give you credit to putting out a video like this. Just don't expect to have anyone make it through to the end. Whaaaa Whaaa, Whaaaa
