Experienced cruiser - second time on Princess, first time on the Regal. Embarkation- Port Everglades is not very convenient - horrible traffic jams on arrival to the port that delayed our arrival. Once we got near the terminal, there ... Read more

This was my 9th Princess cruise and the first time I've sailed on the Royal Class ships. I concur with other reviewers that the three glaring things were the lack of midship stairs (it's a huge ship and really needs them), the shrimpy ... Read more

Regal Princess Review: We are just back from a 7 day cruise aboard the Regal Princess out of Ft. Lauderdale visiting St. Maarten, St. Thomas and Princess Cays. Unfortunately, this spring break cruise was a complete let down. The ... Read more

This is our second Princess cruise and we decided to do a 20 day back-to-back Caribbean cruise to save on air fares from the UK. The ship itself looked great both outside and in. Princess cruises seem to have achieved a really good blend ... Read more

We decided we wanted to try a more adult friendly cruise and the ports were what we were looking for as well as a new cruise line and new ship. This was our first Princess cruise but not our first cruise. Most unfriendly staff ever on ... Read more

We are long time Princess cruisers (family of four) and we were delighted to cruise on the relatively new Royal Princess. I won't go into embarkation details since as Preferred Guests, it was easy for us. But I will say to allow time if ... Read more

I will confess right away - my experience cruising has been on Carnival (yes, the Party Boat) and on the now-defunct Dolphin Line. My husband and I are Young Seniors and we travel with our friends, like-minded Young Seniors. We do not ... Read more

caveat- we ate anytime dining and always arrived before 6 PM and shared a table. We are seniors with about 10 cruises under our belt. Contrary to most of the reviews of this ship, we thought the dining room food was quite good. We were ... Read more

We sailed on the Regal Princess for their Spring Break cruise from March 20 - 27, 2016 to the Western Caribbean. We arrived around 10 am and were in the top 50 - 75 passengers waiting to get on the ship. They opened the doors at 11 am ... Read more

My first cruise, I didn't have much time to research before booking, but I was very happy with the Regal. It's a nice ship, big but did not feel too big to me. Many of the other in-depth reviews on here about the boat, it's layout etc are ... Read more

Having read a couple of negative reviews I feel compelled to balance it, in favour or Princess who, in our opinion were impeccable. There is one recent review that frankly after reading the 6th sub heading I stopped, and it says to me ... Read more

Compared to our first sailing with Princess, this ship did a fine job with service. The Caribbean Princess was also in better condition. On the Grand Princess (sailed 2011), the stewards and dining room staff were so overworked they ... Read more

We took a Princess cruise to Alaska a few years ago and I was completely underwelmed. Thought we'd give the line a second chance since the price was right and I didn't want to go to Key West. Was much more pleased. Balcony cabin was ... Read more

This was our second Princess cruise - the last one was six years ago. We wanted to try a new and larger ship, and the Regal Princess fit the bill. We have cruised with four different cruise lines, in twelve years, and are getting a bit ... Read more

I booked this cruise very last minute - 5 days before sailing! This isn't something that I would normally do, as I have to coordinate well-priced airfare for the flight from Canada. However, there was a cabin location that I liked, the ... Read more

We booked a mini-suite (M206) and had no problems with noise from the upper deck. None at all. It also kept us close to the 16th deck where the Horizon restaurant was located and to the 17th deck where we preferred to lounge. I ... Read more

Two words to describe it, below expectations. Our cabin steward was very efficient with what he could be in control of but we never got bathrobes! He can't supply what he does not have. It took two days to get pre-bought water two days ... Read more
