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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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

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
