My wife and I, both seniors, have taken a Caribbean cruise every winter for the last 15 years. The previous 2 were on RC (fair) and NCL ( very poor, after several that had been OK).So it was a real treat to get on a ship with superb ... Read more

Salty Dawgs know to expect Spring Break hounds aboard from mid-March to mid-April. The math is predictable: Spring Breakers plus frequent Happy Hours equals? On this cruise the Spring Break pack generally stayed around the main pool ... Read more

This is my 41st cruise and my first review on Cruise Critic. Princess is an outstanding cruise line and one of my favorites, but, they need to work on a few things. As I stated, I have been on 41 cruises, so I consider myself a bit of an ... Read more

First of all we have 9 cruises with Carnival and was very excited about going on a b2b on Princess. So, many of our comparisons were based on our experiences with Carnival. We have always gotten a balcony cabin so booked sidexside with our ... Read more

First, a caveat. I assume a lot of people like Princess. After two cruises, we do not. We are Celebrity Elite status cruisers and find Princess no match for Celebrity. So, maybe my comments will help others who are not sure what line to go ... Read more

The title says it all. Lots of Spring Breakers doing some serious drinking--boys and girls. Glad no one went over board. It was one big party for them......ill leave it there. Our state room (Riveria deck) never got cool, always felt ... Read more

WOW, what a change for the worse. We did two cruises on the Royal in 2014 (Caribbean and Halifax) and then the world cruise on the Pacific Princess in 2015. Perhaps we got spoiled on the Pacific Princess yet there were things on this ... Read more

This was our second time on the Royal and we loved it! We had an interior room and was surprised with the amount of space to store our clothes. The ship was spotless. Staff were welcoming and friendly. The food was fabulous! Our ... Read more

Well after reading so many so-so reviews and complaints about the Royal Princess, we were almost not looking forward to our recent cruise. We are happy to report that we had a fantastic trip on board. We opted to wait until after ... Read more

We have done this same itinerary on the Emerald Princess a few years ago and just wanted to get away from winter and enjoy the warm weather. Usually go with a group but this was a late booking and we just went by ourselves. We had the ... Read more

I had read a lot of negative reviews regarding the Royal Princess, but when this opportunity came along we decided to give the Royal a try. I'm very glad we did. We had a wonderful cruise. I will agree that the balcony size is an issue. ... Read more

I was expecting more since I know a lot of people who said they thought Princess was the best. This cruise was okay but I didn't think the entertainment or the food was as good as some of our other cruises (on Celebrity and NCL). Could ... Read more
