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

The ship I really liked the ship, actually. Yes, there are design flaws which have been mentioned previously on other posts. However, we read those posts before booking and reserved a cabin near the aft elevators and it was perfect for ... Read more

Embarking: Fort Lauderdale. This is a great port for embarking. This was our first Princess cruise so we were not priority or elite members, but getting on this ship went quit quickly. We arrived at the port around 11:30 and were ... Read more

First time on Princess's mega ship. I was very surprised that even though the ship was fully booked, it did not seem crowded. The only time that I felt crowed was the 8:15 theater shows and breakfast buffet on some days. Embarkation ... Read more
