I tried to love this ship : Royal Princess Cruise Review by cruzmann
Overall Member Rating
I tried to love this ship
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Other than the balcony, my room was fine but I noticed that there is a significant privacy problem for rooms on the starboard side due to the skywalk. The staff try very hard to please the passengers but I sense that they also know that they cannot fix the poor design of this ship. I will sail Princess again because I like the people and the food and the atmosphere but I won't sail on the Royal Princess again unless they make changes.
I you have a chance to do the same trip on an older, but better ship, I recommend Princess for the Caribbean without question. Less
Cabin review: 15-208
Very nice room well toward the front of the ship. Very comfortable and convenient to the front staircase and elevators. The room has cabins above and below it and no cabin across the hall. Nice bathroom and a good desk arrangement though not as nice as mini-suites on the older Princess Ships that have more of a divider between the sitting and sleeping areas. Balcony is small like all of them on this ship. You can't comfortably sit facing the sea directly. If you spend a lot of time on the Lido deck this cabin might be the one for you. It is a reduced price unit due to the far forward location but I have paid for suites that were not as nice.
