Ship Facts: Royal Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Royal Princess Deck Plans
Royal Princess - Somebody missed the boat on this one!

We booked this cruise a long time ago waiting to see the new ship, it wasn't worth the wait!

For some reason Princess decided that 2 swimming pools would do for an additional 500 guests, well it didn't.

The last 1/3 of this ship has absolutely no use, you can no longer sit outside for breakfast or lunch in the sun because that deck is now covered by another deck.

The Sanctuary is actually smaller on this ship than their other ships and booking it was next to impossible.

Instead of being able to book the sanctuary in the morning they were taking bookings at 1PM and there were virtually no spots in the shade, it was very pooly laid out and all they added was private cabanas at a cost of $80 per day. This needs to be fixed asap.

We were booked to go back on the Royal in February but since have changed to the Crown because we will never ever book this ship or the Regal again.

The food, entertainment and all staff were great and that is why we stay with Princess, but if it comes to where all they offer is the Royal or Regal we will be changing cruise lines for the Caribbean.

The only improvement on this ship was the Piazza, it was much more open and all could see from any of the three floors looking down on the bottom floor.

The Horizon Buffet and Bistro are so spread out that you need a map to figure out where to find what you are looking for.
