Well after reading so many so-so reviews and complaints about the Royal Princess, we were almost not looking forward to our recent cruise. We are happy to report that we had a fantastic trip on board. We opted to wait until after ... Read more

We have done this same itinerary on the Emerald Princess a few years ago and just wanted to get away from winter and enjoy the warm weather. Usually go with a group but this was a late booking and we just went by ourselves. We had the ... Read more

I had read a lot of negative reviews regarding the Royal Princess, but when this opportunity came along we decided to give the Royal a try. I'm very glad we did. We had a wonderful cruise. I will agree that the balcony size is an issue. ... Read more

I was expecting more since I know a lot of people who said they thought Princess was the best. This cruise was okay but I didn't think the entertainment or the food was as good as some of our other cruises (on Celebrity and NCL). Could ... Read more

So glad we decided to go on this ship. Had a wonderful time even though we had been to all the ports before, some on more than 1 occasion. The Royal Princess was a beautiful ship and the crew and service providers were more than ... Read more

EMBARKATION was probably the latest in all of our 15 years of cruising. At 11:30 A.M. there were still passengers disembarking, and the line of passengers waiting to enter the cruise terminal stretched for close to 100 yards. Finally at ... Read more

This was our 21st cruise, but the first one on Princess. The purpose of this cruise was to de-stress and relax. We did not go to any shows and did not get off the ship at the ports since we have been to them several times before. We ... Read more

This was our very first cruise ever; friends and family could not believe we were really taking a cruise as we do not fit your typical cruise profile, although we are retired. We had no preconceived ideas about what to expect, and I ... Read more

This was our 3rd cruise, the 2nd on Princess, and our first 7 nighter. We had a wonderful time! The ship is beautiful, and walking into the Piazza just took my breath away. The Piazza is the heart of this ship, with all kinds of ... Read more

Have been on the Royal several times and the biggest issue our group had was the lack of good service in the Symphony Dining Room. Several evenings were less than good. Our first night after we were seated it took 20 minutes for our ... Read more

This was our 15th cruise and the largest and newest ship we've sailed. The advantages of being on a large ship are numerous because of the many choices: activities, food, locations on the ship, people you meet, excursions. Having been on ... Read more

We flew from Maine to Fort Lauderdale the day before the cruise and stayed at the Rodeway Inn. Hotel was decent enough but probably will stay at a newer place next time. This was our first Princess cruise and we loved it - a 10 day ... Read more

Royal Princess is a very nice ship, with some serious design flaws. The lack of a center staircase makes navigating the ship very difficult. On deck 6 you can not go to the Allergo restaurant, you have to go up to deck 7 walk to the back ... Read more
