No more Royal Princess

Sail Date: October 2013
Destination: Transatlantic
Embarkation: Venice

We were on the Royal Princess for the maiden transatlantic voyage, from Venice.

The ship looks nice from the outside, but when you come in, you see there a lot of bling-bling to show off.

The bigger atrium is nice, more space for the senoir to play card or sleep, during the day and during the performance from the entertainers.......

That right, the stateroom are smaller, balcony are tiny.

The most inconvenient is there is no mid-ship staircase, so, from the pool or the buffet, you have to wait for the elevator that are crowded.

The configuration of the Vista lounge need to be rethink. What is a lounge without a bar?????

We really missed the Explorer lounge, in mid-ship on the other ship. The Princess Live studio is OK, but really to small for trivia, zumba.

And then, there is NO Promenade around the ship on Promenade deck!!!!

Princess begin to charge more for the extras: Chef's tables, fondues night, Crab shack More dinner, Wine list.

Finally, I can't imagine that ship in the Caribbean, for the Thanksgiving or Christmas weeks, with 1000 kids onboard. There's only 2 pools +1 baby pool on lido deck.

For me, the name Carnival start to melted down on the name Princess. Food quality, service and production shows( 35 minutes) are getting worst than ever.

I've seen the Royal, but, no more for me. And the way Princess are heading ( cutting corner to save money ), I have different vacation option. Celebrity cruises or all inclusives resort are some of them! Less
