We did not explore Ft. Lauderdale before we embarked. We have lived there, so no need to tour around. The only real negative was that there was a huge line for embarkation. It was probably the worst in all of our cruises. We flew in to ... Read more

My husband and I were looking for an extended cruise to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and we had not visited most of the ports on the Southern Caribbean itinerary. Overall, we enjoyed the experience. The ship is beautiful! We ... Read more

I loved The Caribbean Princess so I thought I couldn't go wrong with Princess. Boy, was I wrong. This ship is like an experiment gone wrong. Take all the bad ideas on all my previous cruises and put them all together, and I found it in one ... Read more

This was my 15th cruise overall, and 8th cruise on Princess. We were onboard for the 10 night eastern Caribbean itinerary. I have generally been very pleased with Princess cruises, and this was my first cruise on the Royal sized ship. In ... Read more

Loved the ship although the food was a huge disappointment and the cruise directing staff lacked enthusiasm. Also seemed like there were less entertainment options compared to other cruises I've been on. Getting off the ship was crazy ... Read more

Myself and DH have cruised several times before both on Princess and Royal Caribbean (once on costa unfortunately) . We tend to favour the larger RC ships and enjoyed our time on Quantum last year. We chose Royal Princess this time for the ... Read more

Our first cruise to celebrate our 40th anniv. What an amazing experience. Treated like royalty. Although the ship is massive (19 decks) It didn't bother me at all - the sailing was so smooth. Inside the décor was beautifully ... Read more

This is our second Princess cruise and we decided to do a 20 day back-to-back Caribbean cruise to save on air fares from the UK. The ship itself looked great both outside and in. Princess cruises seem to have achieved a really good blend ... Read more

We decided we wanted to try a more adult friendly cruise and the ports were what we were looking for as well as a new cruise line and new ship. This was our first Princess cruise but not our first cruise. Most unfriendly staff ever on ... Read more

This was our 7th cruise. We have sailed Disney, Norwegian, Carnival, Celebrity and Holland America. We are new to cruising and want to experience all the major lines before settling on one or two. Friends had encouraged us to try ... Read more

We are long time Princess cruisers (family of four) and we were delighted to cruise on the relatively new Royal Princess. I won't go into embarkation details since as Preferred Guests, it was easy for us. But I will say to allow time if ... Read more

I will confess right away - my experience cruising has been on Carnival (yes, the Party Boat) and on the now-defunct Dolphin Line. My husband and I are Young Seniors and we travel with our friends, like-minded Young Seniors. We do not ... Read more

caveat- we ate anytime dining and always arrived before 6 PM and shared a table. We are seniors with about 10 cruises under our belt. Contrary to most of the reviews of this ship, we thought the dining room food was quite good. We were ... Read more

We sailed Royal Princess for ten days, March 13th through March 23rd. Embarkation was relatively painless, considering the amount of people boarding. Our cabin was ready when we boarded about noon, and after dropping the luggage, we ... Read more

WOW, what a change for the worse. We did two cruises on the Royal in 2014 (Caribbean and Halifax) and then the world cruise on the Pacific Princess in 2015. Perhaps we got spoiled on the Pacific Princess yet there were things on this ... Read more
