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

So glad we decided to go on this ship. Had a wonderful time even though we had been to all the ports before, some on more than 1 occasion. The Royal Princess was a beautiful ship and the crew and service providers were more than ... Read more

In case the title didn't give it away, this was the first cruise that my wife and I had ever taken. In fact, this was the first time we'd ever even been to the Caribbean. We had done months of research leading up to this. Where did we want ... Read more

Our embarkation port was Houston (Bayport). It's about 60 to 90 minutes depending on traffic, from the airport to cruise terminal. We drive our car car and park on site for about $100/wk. safe gated area. Embarkation is very efficient. ... Read more

I'll start with the bad to get it out of the way. There were only 2 things that I felt were bad on this cruise. The first and foremost being the smell of sewage on some areas of the deck. I am assuming they had some kind of ventilation ... Read more

Travel from Hobby airport to Kemah a day early, close to terminal took over 2 hours and $80+ on I45. This was twice what we expected at 3pm on a Saturday. Traffic was bumper to bumper the whole way. Perhaps the cab driver took advantage ... Read more

After reading reviews, we were nervous, but there was no need. We had a great experience with no major issues. I'm always amazed that 2 different families can experience exactly the same thing and come away with polar opposite ... Read more
