WE are sailing the Coral from L.A. to Ft. Lauderdale 9/24 to 10/9. Then she goes into drydock for re-habbing and my understanding is they will add the Sanctuary and MUTS - so should be available for...

Hey There Lv2B@sea -

Are you sure the $300 cost is to upgrade to a mini-suite with a balcony? Remember there are some mini-suites (the least expensive) that don't have balconies. I don't know if you would want to give...

I completely agree with Candymaker. Typically, the first day out at sea after departing Los Angeles can be the "roughest", but that doesn't always mean it is rough. We love this cruise and will...

I take Bonine starting the night before the cruise and take it for an additional 2 nights. After that I have my sea legs and don't have any problem. If the seas get rough, I may take another one -...

In reading recent reviews of both the Emerald and the Ruby Princess there have been references to food being served in the Wheelhouse Bar; "Pub Lunch" and "Fish & Chips". Is this something new and...

Island Princess - also a disappointment

It has been a while since we were on the Island Princess round trip L.A. to Hawaii. We were also very disappointed. After many cruises on various Princess ships - the food on this cruise was a major...

We took 6 bottles of wine on board the Island on the 9/21 cruise. Four bottles we carried on and two bottles were in our checked baggage, just for ease of handling. Had no problem with either...

I don't think it is more than a 10 minute cab ride to Kahalu'u Park - so I can't imagine it would be costly. Renting a car in Kona often means you have to go North to the airport to pick up the car...
