Princess Cruises Covid-19 safety measures
Those who have flu-like symptoms, or have been in contact with someone who has or is suspected to have COVID-19 will not be allowed to board. When preparing for boarding, all guests will have to go undergo health screening, including temperature checks. At embarkation terminals, frequently touched points will be continuously sanitised, and there will be sanitising- and fogging if possible- after each embarkation and debarkation.
The cruise line's already rigorous cleaning will be further enhanced with frequent cleaning of surfaces that are often touched such as chairs and fitness equipment. There will also be hand sanitiser throughout the ship, and in crew areas, to make hand washing easier.
With medical crew onboard who will be trained specially to deal with COVID-19, anyone who develops symptoms during their cruise will receive free screening and treatment.
Princess Cruises understand the impotance of social distancing, which is why there will be reduced capacity throughout their ships at venues and events. What's more, their innovative OceanMedallion technology will provide guests with a contactless experience onboard, from guests services to paying for items.
Crew safety is monitored throughout their cruise thanks to pre-embarkation testing and daily health checks.
With destinations being monitored to ensure that they are not high risk, smaller group sizes, and hygiene measures, Princess Cruises can make sure that guests are safe to disembark and explore at ports of call during their cruise.
Friendly crew, not too large a ship, good food, amply-sized cabins. A few small gripes: they're very wasteful of paper, their shows are rather out-dated (song and dance format) and -- the daily irritant for me -- the desk chair in the cabin didn't have a back. Best crew member: Randy the lively pianist and singer.
This was my first cruise. I'm 59 and I was among the youngest on board. Not many peers to hang with. The food was horrible. I can't wait to get off so I can eat a good meal. We had to eat in the steakhouse at $60 for both of us to get a decent meal. They say their pizza is award winning (best on a cruise). Trust me....no way. The cheese is bad, bad, bad. I'm from Phila and that's NOT a good pizza. I don't eat a lot of meat. So I ended up having Fettuccini Alfredo almost every night. The only good dish the chef made was his pasta with tomatoe sauce. My boyfriend is a chef of 40 years and will eat a wide range of foods. He's been on 3 other cruises and thought the food was very dissappointing. Won't sail them again. I starved!!!!!!!!!
Just back from Norwegian fjords cruise on Pacific Princess, it was fabulous. The ports of call, all the fjords and right up to Svalbard and the Northern Cape were fascinating, but best of all were the crew and the ship -definitely the best in the fleet.
