Was shocked; out of 109 cruises; one of the five worst. Complained about high garlic /curry smell in our hall way; actually to point of being nauseated and couldn't eat after wards; complained twice to cabin manager and heard nothing; ... Read more

I have not done Cruise Critic in awhile, but even though I have a zillion things to play catch-up on, I feel that I have a responsibility to share my opinion of the Royal Princess. After all, I read all of the reviews previously, which ... Read more

Holiday cruise on the Royal princess..perfect in many ways. Service, food, staff attitude, spa and a spacious ship where even with 4000 on board, it feels like the whole ship is yours to enjoy. Enclave in the spa was well worth $200/pp for ... Read more

This cruise was reasonably priced and full of good activities. The staff was efficient and friendly. The ports were interesting, even though we had visited them multiple times. Our stateroom was small and had a slightly musty smell, and ... Read more

Reasonably new to the Caribbean. Like 6 back to back Islands with excursions... each different. Got a good feel for some of the islands. On board the accommodations and staff were excellent. The food seemed not quite as good as in the ... Read more

We booked this cruise based on our previous experiences with Princess. This was the largest and most beautiful ship we have been on in our ten cruises, As usual, we had a balcony cabin and it was very comfortable. The showers on this ship ... Read more

Loved the people onboard, staff and passengers. Lots of fun, pleasant itinerary, but ship lacks a promenade either inside or out. Pity. I'll stick to the Crown and her sister ships in the future, so I can spend more time outside. Had a ... Read more

We recently completed the Southern Caribbean itinerary on the Royal, our first time on this ship (hopefully the first of many). We flew down to Fort Lauderdale several days early to avoid last minute delays and to soak up the Florida ... Read more

With respect to boarding and disembarking, I think that everything is very fluid and functional with the exception of boarding or asked to fill out a form asking to move forward and make the inspection of our items that we brought with us. ... Read more

After 15 cruises on 7 different lines I have, unfortunately, discovered a line I will never cruise with again. It's hard to know where to begin. Embarkation went relatively smoothly and we were on board by 1PM. Went to the buffet on deck ... Read more

My friend chose this cruise. I usually sail with Holland. The comparison is close, however, Princess did not have towel critters each night on our bed; did not have orchids on each dining table, and did not have elevators that reach every ... Read more

Room - very nice..adequate for us. Great huge TV with lots of on- demand movie selections. Small balcony but we rarely used it. Great large basin in bathroom but not enough storage. Guess we have too many toilet articles. Bedding felt ... Read more

Saw several islands (Antigua, St. Kitts) that we had not visited. One disappointment was the trip to the batik operation on Barbados...little more than paying to have someone take you to a store with stuff I was not interested in buying. ... Read more
