We did not explore Ft. Lauderdale before we embarked. We have lived there, so no need to tour around. The only real negative was that there was a huge line for embarkation. It was probably the worst in all of our cruises. We flew in to ... Read more

We were on the Regal April 10 -17 for a Western Caribbean itinerary. Prior to the cruise, we spent 3 nights at the Residence Inn in Fort Lauderdale, which was a great way to relax. We enjoyed watching manatees off of their dock while ... Read more

I had never cruised Princess before and wanted to give it a try. I probably won't go this route again, unless it's a VERY good deal. The food was very good most of the time in the dining room. Desserts were very good. Wait service was ... Read more

We picked this cruise rather than the Eastern Caribbean cruise because the online itinerary showed a stop in Jamaica. However, after downloading our documents, they showed stopping at Costa Maya instead of Jamaica....very disappointing. ... Read more

After another cold winter, we were ready for some warmth! This turned into the perfect cruise to satisfy those desires, plus add to the memories of a life well blessed. We had a smooth embarkation day, with an easy flight into FLL, a ... Read more

We chose this cruise primarily because it was travelling to the Panama Canal and also to Cartagena, Columbia. The passengers were primarily older adults but there were a few families with children. I believe the Panama Canal is a ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted to try the Princess cruise line, to check out a newer ship, and because we had never been to the Eastern Caribbean. I found this to be a beautiful ship. I was impressed mostly with two things: 1. ... Read more

Loved the ship although the food was a huge disappointment and the cruise directing staff lacked enthusiasm. Also seemed like there were less entertainment options compared to other cruises I've been on. Getting off the ship was crazy ... Read more
