Princess Cruises doesn't set out to dazzle with gimmickry (no bumper cars at sea, ropes courses or simulated surf pools for this Princess), and it's never wanted (or needed) to. The line opts for a more ...

This was our 2nd time on this ship. It is a beautiful ship with the only drawback being not enough elevators and stairs. We were fortunate to have the best Princess cruise director-Lisa Ball which meant lots of live music venues and ... Read more

I have been on two Princess cruises previously in 2013, a 7 day on Ruby and 10 day on Emerald. At the time I told Princess that the food and service was excellent but the space was so cramped we would not travel with them again. We saw ... Read more

I never had a balcony so small. It was furnished with 2 chairs, 2 stools and a table which left about 1 square foot to walk. I finally moved the table inside the cabin and left a stool under a chair. We both shared one stool. This way we ... Read more

Our annual Christmas "escape" aboard Princess was a repeat cruise from 2014 on the (still) beautiful, if not flawed, Royal. The ship was in fine form with the usual elegant and understated Holiday decorations. The village ... Read more

Getting the negative out of the way first - the (Anytime) dining experience on the Royal Princess was very average. The food was almost never hot, and we felt the waiters were very rushed all the time. They seemed to lack a little ... Read more

Embarking and disembarking was very smooth. The main dining room food was okay, but the best food is in the specialty restaurants. Especially the Crown Grille. The entertainment is excellent for first time cruisers however for seasoned ... Read more

My son and I went on the Royal Princess last Dec for 20 nights. Some people we liked a lot, some people we didn't. Some people didn't like us. The rest were two faced. I was very disappointed with the food. The breakfasts in Horizon court ... Read more

I haven't written many reviews but I read many before we go on our cruises so I thought it was time I contributed. This was our 8th cruise (2nd on Princess) and I can say that for the most part everything met our expectations. Our ... Read more

Embarkation – Painless! Best ever in our 20+ departures from Port Everglades. Arrived early, let into the terminal about 11am and on board 30 minutes later. Impressions of the ship – Really liked the decor, ... Read more

My wife and I like to try to take a cruise before the holidays in December. It's nice to get away from the cold and just relax. It's generally very easy to accomplish this with a Caribbean cruise. We prefer the itinerary of the 10 day ... Read more

We have been on 4 Princess cruises in the last few years and this was the biggest disappointment. They are obviously cutting back on staff and food quality. The poor waiters and room stewards were run ragged. The ship is beautiful ... Read more

We were on the Royal exactly 1 year ago and gave it 5 Stars. Everything Princess does was done right. This time, not so much. Celebrity Chef Curtis Stone's new menu leaves a lot to be desired. It may have unique flavours, but they did ... Read more

Our cruise was the first on the Royal class ships, but not our first on Princess. We are Platinum (9 cruises) level. We had a smooth embarkation and love the fact Princess has your cabin ready when you embark. We normally choose a Suite ... Read more

Second trip on the Royal Princess (1st one ended in the Med with power issues). This trip was to the Sou Carib to a number of islands we had not visited previously. In short, the ship was over-crowded despite the size of the Royal - plus ... Read more

This was my second princess cruise. The ship was way to big. They should of thought about the Princess Theater only 2 exit rows all in the middle. They needed side exits. The towels were like sandpaper and some were very threadbare ... Read more

Wow, what a major disappointment as Royal follows the airlines gimic, packing more people into smaller spaces. Cabins are smaller,but the balconies are really smaller. A 6'-3" person as I am can't sit with leg crossed and have enough ... Read more
