Royal Princess somewhat disappointing!

Sail Date: October 2013
Destination: Transatlantic
Embarkation: Venice
The Royal Princess received some much press prior to its sailing, that we were expecting great tings from her...however, we were somewhat disappointed. The design of the ship needs to be changed before the Regal is launched. The center staircase only goes from 4-7 with no access to the upper floors making the use of the elevators a necessity. The Princess theatre has no aisles on the orchestra seats on either side making the entire row having to get up and down when someone wants to entire the row.

We must say that the pillows and bed were extremely comfortable and the cabin was roomy enough. The bathroom now has shampoo/conditioner and bath gel in the shower in dispensers rather than in separate bottles.

The shore excursions have not been changed in years so if you have traveled to these ports before perhaps you might look into doing your own private tour or connecting with others.

The entertainment on the ship was terrific! There were plenty of things to More do during the day with lectures, movies, trivia and watching movies under the stars/sun.

Hopefully, Princess will work out the kinks and make the ship truly "Royal". Less
