We were in Florida and wanted a shorter cruise that visited islands we had not been to, Turks and Caicos and the Dominican Republic, so this March 20-25, 2017 sailing sounded perfect. However, our experience was nothing like the previous ... Read more

With the exception of port wait times, which were the fault of US Customs, not Princess, our cruise couldn't get much more perfect. This was our first cruise - and now I am hooked for life. We did the Vow Renewal Deluxe Package and it was ... Read more

Wanted to experience the Regal. Kinda disappointed here. Think we'll go back to the smaller, more elegant ships. The spa was in the wrong location and was not up to quality of other ships: the heated stone tables were not heated and ... Read more

The ship was too crowded and there were lines everywhere.It seems like the ship cannot accommodate the large number of passengers in the common areas like the lounges and atrium. The food was terrible (cold, poorly plated and tasteless). ... Read more

We had started out planning on booking a Royal C cruise on one of the Oasis Class ships. Although we likely still will, we were really in the mood for a more relaxing vacation and after reading reviews for Oasis ships and the lines, ... Read more

We have traveled many times on Princess, but Regal was the best. They have made many improvements to the ship. The overall design is fabulous with many new features: lighted water fountain synchronized to music and video, new ... Read more

I chose this cruise because we sailed the Regal Princess two years ago and had amassed a large onboard credit that was due to expire. This sailing also fit our dates and we had the opportunity to book a forward facing corner balcony cabin ... Read more

We've been on Princess cruises for years. My only complaint is that they continue to reduce the size of the dining room staff. The staff works very hard but there are simply too few hands so every meal takes an hour and a half. The ship ... Read more

Friends (all of us in our late 50s) had chosen this cruise and itinerary as a way to get a group of old high school friends together on a vacation. Embarkation was held up a little due to a US Coast guard inspection. I assume this ... 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
