We took some first time cruisers on the Royal Princess during the month of March. It was a wonderful experience for all of us. The ship was absolutely beautiful and the service was outstanding! We are seasoned cruisers and the one thing that stood out for us was the movies and TV shows on demand in our cabin.
After a full day of reading/activities/eating, we would venture back to our cabins at night and catch up on newly released DVD's, such as Catching Fire/12 Years a Slave/Gravity, etc. Plus, we were able to watch a couple of TV series that we don't have access to at home.
The food was very good but the service is what stands out in our minds. The entertainment was great as well. Our friends came home and started researching future cruises with Princess. We loved it!
