We chose The Royal Princess because of our previous cruises on this ship. The addition of the stairs in the forward area was a big improvement. It is still a difficult ship to navigate because of the size. Getting to the Allegro dinning ... Read more

To celebrate my husband's retirement we chose a 10 day Southern Caribbean cruise on Royal Princess. This was our 16th cruise and second on this ship. While a beautiful upscale ship, the rooms are smaller than other cruise ships. Our mini ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the ports. The cabin was just ok. When we arrived there was black dust on the desk no ice and no bathrobes as we requested. We had to request several times from the cabin steward for ice and the bathrobes. ... Read more

The service was super, the crew was wonderful and very attentive, and the ship was great! Our embarkation was the fastest and smoothest we have ever had and the disembarkation went very quickly and with zero problems. We were in Club ... Read more

Our daughter is 15 months old, and we were really longing for an easy trip to do with her. Cruising was the perfect way to travel. If you are a parent or a grandparent of a toddler considering bringing them on a cruise: you should take ... Read more

This was a family & friends cruise...first time for friends. We were disappointed in the Princess experience on this ship. We are Platinum level and have enjoyed Princess ships in past. However, as another reviewer pointed out, the ... Read more

Enjoyed cruise with Princess before, and chose this cruise to accompany friends who were already going on this Princess cruise. Decided to upgrade to a suite for this cruise. Not sure that was entirely worth the extra money, but there ... Read more

We booked this cruise for winter sun and chose it as it was 20 nights duration albeit consisting of two 10 day cruises. We had been on similar itineraries over Christmas in 2014 and 2015 on Royal and knew what to expect. We had an ... Read more

This was our 26th cruise, 14th with Princess and the 2nd on the Royal. We stayed at the Embassy Suites in Ft Lauderdale. Hotel was clean, a little on the old side, convenient to the cruise port. Embarkation went quickly, cabin was ready ... Read more

This is my first and most likely ONLY trip on the Regal Princess. Since the Royal Princess is of the same design, I won’t be traveling on that ship either. There are many physical/design reasons, which apply to both vessels that are ... Read more

This is our second time on this ship, and the first time after her refit. The centre staircase is a major upgrade, along with the aisleways on either side of the Princess theatre. The ship was fully booked. Embarkation was very ... Read more

Firstly this is a beautiful ship with lots of activities both day and night. The food is very good although we only went to the dining room on several occasions. Definitely the food being offered is of a more economical type on most ... Read more

My wife and I love this ship. Great deck plans, so much to do, bands were great, dancing was great, all was great, except the food quality declined since our cruise last January. Our cabin was large and everything was nice, except the ... Read more

First of all, the Royal Princess is a very large ship. This didn't bother me. It is decorated beautifully, and in the hallways to the cabins, there are photos sent in by Princess passengers. Our Deck 11 mini-suite felt big, and was ... Read more

We have taken many cruises and used a number of different cruise lines. We chose this ship because it worked well with a direct flight from our home city, where you can never count on good flying weather. We like to book our flight ... Read more
