Our first cruise to celebrate our 40th anniv. What an amazing experience. Treated like royalty. Although the ship is massive (19 decks) It didn't bother me at all - the sailing was so smooth. Inside the décor was beautifully ... Read more

We chose this cruise for two reasons: the port of Houston was drive able for us and we wanted to visit Cartagena, Columbia. We were familiar with the other ports, but enjoyed some anyway. Embarkation and debarkation were relatively easy ... Read more

Our daughter in law drove us to the terminal and there was a short wait for someone to assist my husband in a wheelchair. Our room was ready when we got onboard so we dropped off our 'stuff' and headed to the dining room for a very nice ... Read more

We booked two cruises back to back at the end of February. Since we live in South Florida, we check for price drops and amenities and book when the pricing is right for us. We drive to Port Everglades and use an off site parking company. ... Read more

We took this cruise during our kids spring break and loved it. Our kids really enjoyed the kids club. They were in shock waves and made lots of friends. Just some info for parents: 1)the kids club is not a free play area. They had ... Read more

This was our second voyage on the Regal Princess. She is a beautiful ship. It was extremely crowded during the March 27th sailing with almost 4100 guests. The public areas were very busy and the pool area is another story...crowded ... Read more

I work at a school and my mom and I decided to take a trip over my spring break. We flew to Ft. Lauderdale and made our way easily via a taxi to the ship. Embarkation was quick and effortless. Our cabin was Aloha 326 and we loved ... Read more

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

This was our 7th cruise. We have sailed Disney, Norwegian, Carnival, Celebrity and Holland America. We are new to cruising and want to experience all the major lines before settling on one or two. Friends had encouraged us to try ... 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 have cruised with Princess many, many times and this was one of our only two so-so experiences. First, the positives. The waiters, stewards, and other workers were great...very accommodating and friendly, and the cruise staff was ... 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
