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

This was our second time on the Royal and we loved it! We had an interior room and was surprised with the amount of space to store our clothes. The ship was spotless. Staff were welcoming and friendly. The food was fabulous! Our ... 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

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
