This was our 6th cruise but our first on Princess. The food, in general, was lackluster. The one exception to that was the specialty restaurant The Crown Grill. The food and service there was outstanding. Also, the excursions were also ... Read more

The food was very good. We enjoyed dining in the Island Dining room. The maitreD was very helpful and so was the wait staff. Our room steward was excellent. We had a problem with the Happy Hour at the Club Fusion. Most times it ... Read more

Love Princess cruises. The Regal ship is large and has a roomy feeling. Beautiful layouts. Food, entertainment and service was the best ever. The cruise director Martin was superb. He had such a great sense of humour as well. The ... Read more

We are relative newbies to cruising. Did an Alaska cruise about 17 years ago on Royal Caribbean with our kids and my wife's parents (we live in Vancouver so it was convenient). Then no cruising till April this year, when my wife and I ... Read more

This cruise was 10 days long--just the right length for us. And it was within driving distance for us. And, best of all, the price was right. Embarkation was quick--we arrived at about 1:30 after enjoying lunch on shore with family. ... Read more

We just sailed on the Regal Princess to the Western Caribbean. We had never sailed the Princess line before and so only have Celebrity, Disney and Carnival to compare this particular cruise. To say we were underwhelmed would be an ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and time we wanted to go. As Princess Captain's Circle members, we were disappointed with the cruise overall. There were multiple places on the ship where the toilets were not working, one ... Read more

We booked a 2 night pre cruise package at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina. Our room was not ready at 9.45pm and we did not get in their until after midnight, unacceptable when we had been travelling for over 22 hrs. So our cruise did ... Read more

Embarkation While I could’ve taken the Elite line, it snaked around the hall, while the “regular” line was very quick. No brainer. Unfortunately, after we got our cruise cards, it took a long time to get upstairs to ... Read more

While this was my 11th cruise, it was my first on Princess. Our ship departed from Brooklyn on October 27th with three stops in the Caribbean before disembarkation in Fort Lauderdale. Overall I like the ship. The food in the main ... Read more

We chose this cruise to visit some islands we had not been to, and to snorkel their reefs. This was our first Princess cruise and our first 10 day cruise. The embarkation process was a breeze, and we went directly to lunch and ... Read more

NYC to FLL via Regal Princess - with 2 pre-cruise nights in NYC. We were on the very, very early morning flight from Edmonton to Toronto to Laguardia Airport. Perfect flights, connections and timing with Air Canada. Can't say enough good ... Read more

My wife & I chose this particular transitional cruise because it left from our home port of NYC to the Caribbean, because it was fairly reasonable & it avoided flying both ways from it's final port of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Since we ... Read more

Sailed Princess Cruises many times. Chose 10 day Eastern Caribbean just because my husband and I love to cruise. Embarkation was smooth (Elite Status) and luggage arrived very quick. (Impressive) Cabin was clean. No working air ... Read more

We chose The Royal Princess, as good friends who are avid cruisers highly recommended it. We arrived at the Ft. Lauderdale port at around noon and the traffic was a nightmare, as our transfer took 45 minutes to reach the offloading ... Read more

Honestly, the reason I went on this particular trip was because I tagged along with a friend who was going on this cruise. Three of us shared a balcony stateroom and there was plenty of room, as long as we coordinated our movements. We ... Read more

We just returned from our 10 day eastern Carib cruise on the Royal. Princess did a marvelous job during the Royal's dry dock time in Palermo. The ship still has that "new" feel to it, and the new stairway has unquestionably ... Read more

Chose this cruise for relaxation and the itinerary. Disappointed in the embarkation procedure, with technology today there should not be a reason to stand in long lines, even with elite status. The ship itself is fairly new, cabins well ... Read more

I always said that I had never met a cruise I didn't like but now I can say I have found a ship I didn't like. This was our 9th and most likely last Princess cruise. It was our 28th cruise. We are in our early 70's. The food and ... Read more

We took this re positioning cruise from 10/27-11/6. The Experience was great. From the time we got on until we got off the Princess Company kept the standards high and they did everything they could to give you a great cruise experience. ... Read more

Chose cruise based on itinerary, timing, reducing flying to one way and value. Cabin and balcony small. Anytime dining was not well done with lines and poor coordination between sections of the same dining room. After waiting in line, ... Read more

We are a married couple in our 50s and have cruised Celebrity, RCCL, and Princess (enough to be Platinum). We also cruised Regal Princess last year, so we felt like we knew the Royal. We did the 5 day cruise from FLL to Mexico right ... Read more
