Despite the situation with the coronavirus and the upcoming shutdown of Princess, the crew of the Island Princess were very good with the service and their general interaction with the guests. Guests were kept informed of the situation at each port and it was good to know what was happening.
I would recommend cruise with Princess. The crew was very professional, courteous, friendly and helpful. Meals were fresh and enjoyable. Our waiter Tossapoy was amazing.
Very easy to work with..
Had great time thanks for all the help.
This was a great ship - great staff, awesome entertainment, good food. Medallion Ap is a great addition.
Jerry is wonderful, professional and courteous. He took the time to listen and get me exactly what I requested. Jerry never made me feel rushed and took his time with me and we got it right the first time. I will book with this Affordabletours.com and my Travel Agent Jerry in the future. (Believe it or not this is the first time I used Affordabletours.com)
The staff and crew of the Star Princess were the best. Always responsive to needs and requests and able to meet all needs. The ship is showing signs of age (almost 18 years old) and needs some overhaul.Princess plans to sell ship in early 2021 and new ship to replace.
This was a great trip with a wonderful itinerary.
Everything met my expectations
An amazing trip. Saw in very good detail.
VERY GOOD JOB. IT WAS GREAT THANK YOU AGAIN.
Great Ship, great staff. Cruise Director Marcus was top notch. New Year's Eve was a blast!
This was our first Medallion Class cruise from Princess. The embarkation and disembarkation process was the best we've ever experienced. No long lines to get on and off the ship thanks to having gotten our medallions ahead of time. Some of the apps are still a little buggy but quite usable. The internet speed was incredible, rivaling our home WiFi. The Princess Medallion class service is a definite step up for Princess Cruises.
This was our fifth cruise with Princess and we were very pleased with their new Medallion class service.
Excellent service with Affordable Tours. Jason, our cruise consultant was very helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. He answered all of our questions and made sure we were content. Overall a very good company, and very good service, at a terrific price. We will definitely use Affordable Tours again!
Booking this trip was easy with Megan's professional help. Every detail was clearly explained. The cruise itself was everything we expected.
The cruise was exactly what was explained to us.
The Princess Cruise was so much fun! The staff was unbelievable! Definitely would book with Affordable Tours again!
Everything is always perfect. We just booked another trip with Jason
Trip was perfect. DAWN and Affordable Tours took care of all my needs.
Boris was able to get us a good price on our cruise and reminded us of due dates.
The ship experience was great. We would have liked to spend another 1/2 day at San Lucas due to the long time it took the tenders to transport us from the ship to the town.
We love cruising with Princess!
The trip was absolutely fabulous. Not a glitch. From the check-in to the service from all the people on board to the entertainment and the various parties, Princess did not disappoint.
Our Travel Experience was good as First Time Cruisers. The Excursions were also very good. I would highly recommend this Agency.
Our trip around Japan and to South Korea was excellent! Princess does a good job and the Diamond Princess is a beautiful ship. The staff is great and the food is above what we expected. The ports are interesting and the sea days were relaxing. I've sent our travel blog to our travel agent and would be glad to share with Affordable Tours, if you like. Great trip. LONG flight!
Great trip and wonderful places.
Our Princess cruise was excellent and the itinerary took us to places we never thought we would see.
Alaska cruise & Land tours were great. We really liked everything we did, saw and experienced. Thanks Pete, for helping to put together a great trip.
Our cruise with Princess cruises was excellent and everything was provided as promised.
Great trip - everything went smoothly with no problems. The cruise itself was great.
I anticipated a lot more from the land portion of the tour. I guess I just assumed the hotels would be abover average. The princess hotels need cosmetic work. People to clean their grounds and bathrooms. Every public restroom that I used was dirty with overflowing garbage cans, dirty counters and commodes that needed flushed. Because of this the restrooms had an odor. When going to breakfast at the coffee shop, all of the tables were dirty with overflowing garbage cans and run out of thier speciality items. There was garbage laying on the ground surrounding the decks that overlooked the river. Just not my expectaion.
Excellent service by Kia my agent. Good trip
This was our first princess cruise in several years. The ship was outstanding, food was excellent and the service was very good. In all it was a wonderful experience. I would travel with princess again and, of course, to work with affordable tours. You guys are great.
Our cruise was great. Thanks for all the help in booking this trip.
Megan provided us excellent service.
This was my first cruise so I have no comparison, but not sure I am a cruise type person for the sake of cruising..
I will book my next trip with Affordable Tours. Price can't be beat & was even lower than booking directly with Princess Cruise. Questions were answered promptly .
We only have two negatives to complain about: The internet on the ship is woefully slow! I know satellite internet is slow by its very nature, but this is unreal. You literally burn minutes just to get the browser to open your in box. For the price, Princess should either speed up the internet connection, or give more minutes, or provide "unlimited minutes" for a reasonable price. The second beef is the coffee urns in the Sun Deck. No sterno underneath the urns to keep it hot. On the last day of the cruise, they finally switched to thermos containers instead of metal urns.
Our trip truly exceeded our expectations! Our family of 3, which included a 16 year old boy, had a BLAST! All of our experiences were positive and provided a very insightful look into each country we visited. We are already trying to decide what to book next year. I would definitely book again.
We were even given a free upgraded stateroom!
Food is great. On board Entertainment program not so good: the second segment ( Eastern) was identical to the first segment.
When two major languages spoken onboard, one's brain must continually work to decipher and process so the flow isnt fluid. Beds extremely comfortable but were too hot. An extra sheet between mattress and body helped. Rough seas 2 days so midship and lower decks recommend. Food was delicious. Some ports difficult to get to city without taking $10-$15 pp shuttles.
We were impressed with Princess Cruises. Autumn did a great job with our booking
Very easy to work with and things happened exactly as planned.
Great ship and cruise!
We like Princess and have sailed with them several times. Our room service attendant was the best we have ever had and the rest of the staff always greeted us with a smile making us feel welcome wherever we were on the ship.
Everything was great but I would not chose another cruise with so many days at sea.
As always, Richard made all the arrangements for our trip and it has gone very smoothly. We're still enjoying a few days after the cruise in Berlin and London and will fly home on the Pre-arranged EZ Air flight from London on Sunday. Thanks again to Richard and Affordable Tours!
