Why yes...the weather was not the greatest. Yes, we did have to skip the Dominican Republic due to gale force winds and the sun hid behind the clouds many days. However, the Commodore chose a longer, but calmer path for us to head to St. ... Read more

We've been on other cruises, but this was our first Caribbean. We went with a group of friends, for a total of eight. The Regal Princess is huge, but we were a bit familiar with the layout as we'd been on the sister ship, the Royal ... Read more

We sailed the Royal last year, and decided to give the Regal a try. If you like the Royal, you'll like the Regal, and conversely, if you don't like the Royal, you won't like the Regal, as the ships are identical except for one thing-on the ... Read more

Both Embarkation and Disembarkation were quick and painless. Ship was beautiful, atrium was fantastic. Very scenic for photographs. 10/10 Speaking of photographs, the unlimited photo package $199 is the way to go, what a steal. ... Read more

We have traveled on princess many times and have found them to be the best and the most bang for the money. The sailing on the Regal has prov3en to be a wonderful eye opener to the future progress of the princess line to make the future ... Read more

The cruise was chosen by my partner, so I had little say in the destination or cruise line. We sailed on the Regal Princess...an impressive, huge ship with many amenities and MANY people. This is NOT the ship to cruise if you are looking ... Read more

It was our 6th holiday saillng with Princess and we've loved them all. Although Princess is known to draw an older crowed, the Holiday sailings tend to be more inter-generational. We have 2 children, 13 and 10, and they had lots of fun. ... Read more

We are spoiled because of our past cruises with Crystal, Regent, Oceania, etc. Princess was quite disappointing. To recap: When we arrived in Fort Lauderdale, I called the Cambria Suites for the shuttle transfer to the hotel the night ... Read more

This is my second cruise and my husbands first. We went in as a group of seven. My sister and brother-in-law had been on a cruise four times. In their opinion this had been the worst cruise ever. They had travelled in different ... Read more

We wanted to get away for the holidays, so we chose this cruise based on the eastern Caribbean itinerary. The ship is much larger than the type of ship we usually prefer, but although full, there was still plenty of room so that we ... Read more

This is our 7th cruise with Princess, and the Royal was definitely the largest ship we have sailed on. It is beautiful ... the atrium is gorgeous .... as well as the decor throughout. The ship was beautifully decorated for the holidays. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it went to St. Lucia over Christmas. We are in our 30's with no kids. Embarkation and disembarkation were the smoothest we have had in a long time. We loved that our cabin was ready when we got on the ... Read more

Was shocked; out of 109 cruises; one of the five worst. Complained about high garlic /curry smell in our hall way; actually to point of being nauseated and couldn't eat after wards; complained twice to cabin manager and heard nothing; ... Read more

I have not done Cruise Critic in awhile, but even though I have a zillion things to play catch-up on, I feel that I have a responsibility to share my opinion of the Royal Princess. After all, I read all of the reviews previously, which ... Read more

Holiday cruise on the Royal princess..perfect in many ways. Service, food, staff attitude, spa and a spacious ship where even with 4000 on board, it feels like the whole ship is yours to enjoy. Enclave in the spa was well worth $200/pp for ... Read more

This cruise was reasonably priced and full of good activities. The staff was efficient and friendly. The ports were interesting, even though we had visited them multiple times. Our stateroom was small and had a slightly musty smell, and ... Read more

I have sailing many times with Princess and always had a good time. I was very disappointed with the Regal for many reason. Her cabins are much smaller than other ships and the balconies were very small, there is no outside promenade deck, ... Read more

Christmas cruise with friends. Great ports! Food was very good in both the dining room and Lido. Spa excellent as expected. There was plenty of room in the suite but the balcony was way too tight. Did not like the layout of the ship - ... Read more

The itinerary was the main draw for this cruise, but it also gave us a chance to try Princess Cruise lines again. We had a mini-suite on the Caribe Deck and our room steward was fabulous. There were 3 of us in the cabin and DS (age ... Read more

We sailed on the Regal Princess and had a great time. Our group consisted of myself and my husband. We didn't explore Ft. Lauderdale as we've departed several times from there with Princess in the past. Both embarkation and disembarkation ... Read more

We sailed on the Regal Princess Christmas cruise and it was the best cruise I have ever been on. I have also been on the Royal Princess and enjoyed that but this was longer and the ports were far superior. I think I will only sail ... Read more
