Review of Transatlantic Cruise April 27 - May 6, 2017
Embarkation at FLL was a bit of a mess. We got to the port about 11:30 am. There were long lines but no one seemed to know which line was for priority passengers and which for ...
The embarkation was simple and well done.
We had an obstructed balcony but since it wasn't really hot we did not spend a lot of time on the balcony. We did sit out there in port. The obstruction was not horrible because the boat only ...
Third trip on the Royal and loved it again. Big enough to swallow up all 3K people and never feel crowded.
Booked a suite R611 and was happy we did, the extra space let us entertain our friends and plenty of room to move around in. In ...
This was my 8th cruise with Princess, and most likely will be my last. I first sailed on the Island Princess 9 years ago to Alaska and the experience was so wonderful I had since become a habitual cruiser. However, in the past 9 years the ...
We chose this cruise because friends had been onboard and really loved the ship. We have been on another similar line for many years and wanted a change. The ship was very clean, nice, had a lot of activities with the cruise staff and ...
Nice break for Easter holidays with 6 ports to keep it interesting.
Beautiful Piazza with more going on there than other ships. Dining room food about the same - usually very good and sometimes on either side of that. Rooms (I was in ...
Very Disappointed in the cruise. Expected so much more.
Food was so so
Entertainment was awful
Room was very small
Balcony was even smaller
Time to move on to another line
Highlight of our trip was getting lucky to get a ...
embarktation:They did not cue you in to a # area.We all just stood outside till 11:30 then both lines moved t same speed.(one line Elite...one line non elite passenger's)
We boarded by 12:15 and they said our rooms ready, went to room ...
I was so impressed with the Royal Princess and all it had to offer in March 2015. Two years later this past March I did the same itinerary on the same ship. This time around left much to be desired. We tried the set dining time in the ...
What a beautiful ship. We had sailed on its sister ship, the Regal Princess, and the layout, and in fact much of the decor was identical. Our balcony room was nice, but seemed smaller than usual. Leizal kept it spotless for us.
We are ...
We chose this cruise because we were looking for a 9 day or longer cruise and it had some sea days. We liked the fact it had a sea day and the beginning and 2 at the end of the cruise. The ship is fantastic, more than I expected. The ...
We chose this particular cruise because we had not been to the southern Caribbean. We were rather hesitant about a 10 day cruise; but, so glad we did. We could have just stayed on board for the next trip. I cannot say enough good thing ...
We chose this cruise for the unique itinerary. We have cruised with princess before and been pleased with service and cost. Overalll the food was good, just wished the coffee loyalty card had been something on my card rather than ...
We traveled as a family of four - parents + 2 teenaged boys.
Embarkation was shockingly quick, easy, and painless. It took us less than 20 minutes from dropping off our luggage to opening our cabin door. And we do not have any special ...
This was our second time on the Royal and the ship remains in good shape. Our trip was for relaxation and we traveled with another couple.
Embarkation was a bit different than normal in that the Preferred line was longer ...
Picked this cruise because it was a 10 cruise to the deep Caribbean. The Royal is a very nice ship. Lots to do and well laid out. I love the central court and all that goes on around it. Dining was very good in the Horizon Cafe and I ...
This was our 24th cruise and having sailed on the Regal cruise in November we were hoping the Royal would live up to the high standards that the Regal set for us. The Royal did not disappoint. So on to the review and then plenty of ...
We had done this same itinerary on the Emerald in 2012 and thought it worth a second look. Plus we wanted to see the new Royal Princess. As we do more cruises,(this is our 7th), the Wow factor is less, but other than a few glitches this ...
Travel to Fort Lauderdale for we Southern Californians is always tiring at start and end of any cruise. 2-hour drive to LAX, 2 hours there plus the redeye flight. This time we flew on Jet Blue and paid the fee for Extra Legroom seats, ...
This was our second time on the Royal Princess.
We found the food not up to the last time we travelled.
We had notes the last few days saying that they where working on the balconies and may have to enter our room to get out to do ...
We pick cruises by itinerary, and Royal Princess has a nice in this 10 day slot.
- beautiful ship
- excellent service throughout- dining rooms, staterooms, and bars
- good internet. Pretty fast, and a really useful ...
This was our first time on Princess and were looking forward to having a mini suite. However, while the cabin was nice, it's location in the ship, two decks below the skywalk, and the constant vibration in our cabin, made it less than ...
Amazing 10 days onboard the Royal Princess. We arrived at the port around 11am and was walking on 20 min later. This is my 16th cruise with Princess so no long lines to wait in.
First impressions of the interior was wonderful. ...
We've done this cruise before. We like 10 days vs the more common 7 day cruise. We also really enjoy the islands that the cruise goes to. Embarkation went very fast and smooth. After dropping off our carry on bags in our cabin we went ...
We have been on many Princess cruises---I am Platinum Class, my wife is Elite class.
This will be our last time, the quality has greatly detiorated The ship itself had been recently renovated nicely
Embarkation & Debarkation were ...
