To celebrate my husband's retirement we chose a 10 day Southern Caribbean cruise on Royal Princess. This was our 16th cruise and second on this ship. While a beautiful upscale ship, the rooms are smaller than other cruise ships. Our mini ... Read more

We just got back from back-to-back 10-day cruises in February. These were our 16th and 17th cruises on Princess. This was our first cruise as Elite, so thank you Princess for doing our laundry!! What a great perk that is. We had a ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the ports. The cabin was just ok. When we arrived there was black dust on the desk no ice and no bathrobes as we requested. We had to request several times from the cabin steward for ice and the bathrobes. ... Read more

Our daughter is 15 months old, and we were really longing for an easy trip to do with her. Cruising was the perfect way to travel. If you are a parent or a grandparent of a toddler considering bringing them on a cruise: you should take ... Read more

After being on the Royal, we decided to do a longer cruise on the Regal Princess. Technically our 14 days were two back-to-back 7 day cruises in and out of Ft. Lauderdale. Initial embarkation was a breeze, probably the quickest and ... Read more

A year ago, we made friends with some fantastic people on a Caribbean Cruise. We decided to have a "reunion" on the Regal Princess to catch up. What a super time we had! For a ship that had almost 4000 passengers, it NEVER ... Read more

We had never been to the ABC islands but mainly chose this trip because it had 4 sea days. We're both active but in our 60's, so we enjoy just relaxing on the ship more than doing much in the ports. I was a little worried after reading ... Read more

This is my first and most likely ONLY trip on the Regal Princess. Since the Royal Princess is of the same design, I won’t be traveling on that ship either. There are many physical/design reasons, which apply to both vessels that are ... Read more

This is our second time on this ship, and the first time after her refit. The centre staircase is a major upgrade, along with the aisleways on either side of the Princess theatre. The ship was fully booked. Embarkation was very ... Read more
