This was our second cruise overall and first on Princess. Our first cruise was a 3-night getaway on the NCL Sky in September 2016. There is no comparison between these two cruises. The ship, Regal Princess. As of today she is still ... Read more

We traveled as a family of four - parents + 2 teenaged boys. Embarkation was shockingly quick, easy, and painless. It took us less than 20 minutes from dropping off our luggage to opening our cabin door. And we do not have any special ... Read more

We chose this cruise because the ports were different from other Caribbean cruises we have taken. Embarkation was a bit busy but the process was very smooth and did not take long. Disembarkation was the smoothest I have ever experienced. ... Read more

We had done this same itinerary on the Emerald in 2012 and thought it worth a second look. Plus we wanted to see the new Royal Princess. As we do more cruises,(this is our 7th), the Wow factor is less, but other than a few glitches this ... Read more

This was our first time on Princess and were looking forward to having a mini suite. However, while the cabin was nice, it's location in the ship, two decks below the skywalk, and the constant vibration in our cabin, made it less than ... Read more
