10 days eastern Caribbean cruise. Nice ship, the new centre stairs were great. Chefs Table Lumiere was an amazing experience. The Crown Grill and Ultimate balcony dinner were also very good. We only ate at the buffet and the food was good ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise but our first on Princess. The food, in general, was lackluster. The one exception to that was the specialty restaurant The Crown Grill. The food and service there was outstanding. Also, the excursions were also ... Read more

The food was very good. We enjoyed dining in the Island Dining room. The maitreD was very helpful and so was the wait staff. Our room steward was excellent. We had a problem with the Happy Hour at the Club Fusion. Most times it ... Read more

We've taken over 41 cruises, most of them on Princess. We've never had a bad Princess cruise so we keep coming back. The Royal Princess just had come out of drydock and two nice changes were found. They converted the emergency ... Read more

Love Princess cruises. The Regal ship is large and has a roomy feeling. Beautiful layouts. Food, entertainment and service was the best ever. The cruise director Martin was superb. He had such a great sense of humour as well. The ... Read more

We are relative newbies to cruising. Did an Alaska cruise about 17 years ago on Royal Caribbean with our kids and my wife's parents (we live in Vancouver so it was convenient). Then no cruising till April this year, when my wife and I ... Read more

This cruise was 10 days long--just the right length for us. And it was within driving distance for us. And, best of all, the price was right. Embarkation was quick--we arrived at about 1:30 after enjoying lunch on shore with family. ... Read more

We just sailed on the Regal Princess to the Western Caribbean. We had never sailed the Princess line before and so only have Celebrity, Disney and Carnival to compare this particular cruise. To say we were underwhelmed would be an ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and time we wanted to go. As Princess Captain's Circle members, we were disappointed with the cruise overall. There were multiple places on the ship where the toilets were not working, one ... Read more

We booked a 2 night pre cruise package at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina. Our room was not ready at 9.45pm and we did not get in their until after midnight, unacceptable when we had been travelling for over 22 hrs. So our cruise did ... Read more

Our second Princess cruise was very nice. Chose the Panama Canal as that is a "bucket list" destination - and it lives up to the reputation. Embarkation was easy although the lines were very long. Cabin C409 was great - lots ... Read more

Chose this cruise for the Panama Canal experience. I was disappointed with the "improvements" made to the ship. 121 extra cabins fitted on to the rear, an extra 250 passengers plus the removal of a large lounge to accommodate the ... Read more

We'd sailed on the last cruise of the Island Princess before its renovation in 2015. It was interesting to see what had happened. Basically, Princess added a batch of cabins and eliminated the walk-around Promenade. The stern is now ... Read more

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our Panama Canal cruise on the Island Princess. Cabin D722. First about the cabin. A standard Princess mini-suite with ample closet and storage space and bathroom. Huge balcony, thanks probably to being ... Read more

We are veteran cruisers (28 so far) and this was our 8th on Princess. We wanted a long one, and although we've done the canal from west to east, never in this direction. Turned out to be a great choice. Embarkation was a snap. Half hour ... Read more

We just returned from our 10 day eastern Carib cruise on the Royal. Princess did a marvelous job during the Royal's dry dock time in Palermo. The ship still has that "new" feel to it, and the new stairway has unquestionably ... Read more
