Third trip on the Royal and loved it again. Big enough to swallow up all 3K people and never feel crowded. Booked a suite R611 and was happy we did, the extra space let us entertain our friends and plenty of room to move around in. In ... Read more

This was my 8th cruise with Princess, and most likely will be my last. I first sailed on the Island Princess 9 years ago to Alaska and the experience was so wonderful I had since become a habitual cruiser. However, in the past 9 years the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because friends had been onboard and really loved the ship. We have been on another similar line for many years and wanted a change. The ship was very clean, nice, had a lot of activities with the cruise staff and ... Read more

Nice break for Easter holidays with 6 ports to keep it interesting. Beautiful Piazza with more going on there than other ships. Dining room food about the same - usually very good and sometimes on either side of that. Rooms (I was in ... Read more

Decided to take a short cruise mid year before our 15 day transatlantic in October and wanted to visit a couple of ports we actually haven't been to. There aren't many left. So we chose this one since it visited Roatan and Belize - new ... Read more

We were in Balcony Riviera 703....lovely room, without a sofa, and great balcony. However, I picked one that vibrated constantly....not terribly and you do did get used to it. It was beside the back stairway/elevators and super location ... Read more

I just took my first Princess cruise. I was very disappointed. 1. No hair conditioner? Even 2 Star hotels supply this. Especially now, that TSA won’t permit more than 3 ounces of liquid etc., and there was no warning! The product ... Read more

First time on the Regal Princess and it is a beautiful ship. Having scoured the CC boards for a year prior to this cruise, I knew what to expect. I did not like that there was no promenade. I enjoy that on the other ships. Not a ... Read more

Just got back from the Eastern Caribbean sailing on the Regal Princess from 3/26-4/2 with my wife and 8-year-old daughter and have to say it was pretty miserable. This ship has cut corners in pretty laughable ways. The mini-suite we stayed ... Read more

This was my first Princess cruise and traveled with my Mom - we typically travel on Holland America but she was able to get a great deal. The ship was larger than I am used to so I was concerned that I was going to feel super crowded but I ... Read more

We had a group of 13 and had connecting staterooms for which we opened up balconies. Mini-suites were wonderfully sized with plenty of room. Bathroom with full tub was good sized. Dinner was delicious with ample choice. Desserts were loved ... Read more

We have taken at least 50 cruises on many different ships and were always happy with our choice. We went on the Crown Princess on Mach 25 with a group of 17 friends. Upon arrival in our cabin (B605) we noticed a terrible banging coming ... Read more

We picked this cruise because the couple we were traveling with had sailed with Princess before and liked them. Well, i will never cruise with Princess again. I believe the average age on our ship was around 70 - 75 and the food and ... Read more

My parents were traveling with me. Also, my sister and her husband. My Mom cannot fly so driving to Ft. Lauderdale was our best alternative. Loading and unloading were very efficient. Port Everglades is always going to be packed ... Read more

I was so impressed with the Royal Princess and all it had to offer in March 2015. Two years later this past March I did the same itinerary on the same ship. This time around left much to be desired. We tried the set dining time in the ... Read more

What a beautiful ship. We had sailed on its sister ship, the Regal Princess, and the layout, and in fact much of the decor was identical. Our balcony room was nice, but seemed smaller than usual. Leizal kept it spotless for us. We are ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we were looking for a 9 day or longer cruise and it had some sea days. We liked the fact it had a sea day and the beginning and 2 at the end of the cruise. The ship is fantastic, more than I expected. The ... Read more

We chose this particular cruise because we had not been to the southern Caribbean. We were rather hesitant about a 10 day cruise; but, so glad we did. We could have just stayed on board for the next trip. I cannot say enough good thing ... Read more

I will start off by saying this was the most unfriendliest crew I have ever seen on any of my cruises. There was no cheerful hellos and it seemed as if the crew had been yelled at before we got on. I don't know what the problem was but ... Read more

We wanted a short getaway out of Fort Lauderdale and found a fairly good deal. Embarkation and disembarkation were both slower than on previous cruises. There were lines for embarkation outside and disembarkation lines at customs. We ... Read more
