We were in Balcony Riviera 703....lovely room, without a sofa, and great balcony. However, I picked one that vibrated constantly....not terribly and you do did get used to it. It was beside the back stairway/elevators and super location ... Read more

Not many cruise lines go through the Canal, which was the best part. Our biggest complaint was the dining. Anytime dining actually means anytime THEY want to seat you. Call after 8:00 each morning to make a reservation. Many times we ... Read more

We booked this cruise because of a great price and the travel dates. We can't take two weeks off work, so this 10-day cruise, Thu to Sun, was perfect and we only had to take a week+ vacation time. The Panama Canal is of course the ... Read more

My parents chose this itinerary as a Panama Canal cruise was on my father's "bucket list" (he's in his early 70's). As I normally make all my parents' travel arrangements and the cruise fare offered by Princess last October was ... Read more

First time on the Regal Princess and it is a beautiful ship. Having scoured the CC boards for a year prior to this cruise, I knew what to expect. I did not like that there was no promenade. I enjoy that on the other ships. Not a ... Read more

Just got back from the Eastern Caribbean sailing on the Regal Princess from 3/26-4/2 with my wife and 8-year-old daughter and have to say it was pretty miserable. This ship has cut corners in pretty laughable ways. The mini-suite we stayed ... Read more

This was my first Princess cruise and traveled with my Mom - we typically travel on Holland America but she was able to get a great deal. The ship was larger than I am used to so I was concerned that I was going to feel super crowded but I ... Read more

We picked this cruise because the couple we were traveling with had sailed with Princess before and liked them. Well, i will never cruise with Princess again. I believe the average age on our ship was around 70 - 75 and the food and ... Read more

My parents were traveling with me. Also, my sister and her husband. My Mom cannot fly so driving to Ft. Lauderdale was our best alternative. Loading and unloading were very efficient. Port Everglades is always going to be packed ... Read more

I will start off by saying this was the most unfriendliest crew I have ever seen on any of my cruises. There was no cheerful hellos and it seemed as if the crew had been yelled at before we got on. I don't know what the problem was but ... Read more

We wanted a short getaway out of Fort Lauderdale and found a fairly good deal. Embarkation and disembarkation were both slower than on previous cruises. There were lines for embarkation outside and disembarkation lines at customs. We ... Read more

We were in Florida and wanted a shorter cruise that visited islands we had not been to, Turks and Caicos and the Dominican Republic, so this March 20-25, 2017 sailing sounded perfect. However, our experience was nothing like the previous ... Read more

With the exception of port wait times, which were the fault of US Customs, not Princess, our cruise couldn't get much more perfect. This was our first cruise - and now I am hooked for life. We did the Vow Renewal Deluxe Package and it was ... Read more

Wanted to experience the Regal. Kinda disappointed here. Think we'll go back to the smaller, more elegant ships. The spa was in the wrong location and was not up to quality of other ships: the heated stone tables were not heated and ... Read more

The ship was too crowded and there were lines everywhere.It seems like the ship cannot accommodate the large number of passengers in the common areas like the lounges and atrium. The food was terrible (cold, poorly plated and tasteless). ... Read more

We have traveled many times on Princess, but Regal was the best. They have made many improvements to the ship. The overall design is fabulous with many new features: lighted water fountain synchronized to music and video, new ... Read more

I chose this cruise because we sailed the Regal Princess two years ago and had amassed a large onboard credit that was due to expire. This sailing also fit our dates and we had the opportunity to book a forward facing corner balcony cabin ... Read more

We've been on Princess cruises for years. My only complaint is that they continue to reduce the size of the dining room staff. The staff works very hard but there are simply too few hands so every meal takes an hour and a half. The ship ... Read more
