Ship Facts: Royal Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Royal Princess Deck Plans
Beautiful ship, wonderful cruise

After reading so many reviews, and hearing so much about this ship, we did her ourselves. The Royal Princess is the finest most beautiful ship we have sailed on out of 7 cruises. We have a 7-day blast, with the finest food of our 7 cruises, and wonderful service all around. Both the buffet and dinning room food and staff were first class all the way. Being disabled, we are more into the ship than we are shore stops. We did enjoy going ashore at St. Thomas and St. Maarten doing some shopping by cab. We did not get off at the Princess Keys sense we had already been there, and the seas were a little choppy for a tender in given our disabilities. The entertainment was as good as we have ever had on any cruise, and on a par with anything on land. All the complaints we had heard proved nonsense. The elevators are no slower than those on the Allure, which we sailed on 2 years ago. On the Allure, children, something we never encountered on the Royal Princess, were constantly using the elevators as play toys. We think part of the issue may be that the elevators are for the most part enclosed rather than glass, making them seem smaller. Getting around was not a problem for us, and again, we are disabled.

Our big pet peeve was embarkation and especially debarkation, where we encountered a totally unfair wait while other passengers were taken ahead. The entire process was inefficient and degrading to the disabled. We also did not find the skywalk particularly exciting, the view from our balcony was just as spectacular. The ship gets an A+ from us.
