A year ago, we made friends with some fantastic people on a Caribbean Cruise. We decided to have a "reunion" on the Regal Princess to catch up. What a super time we had! For a ship that had almost 4000 passengers, it NEVER ... Read more

I chose Princess for two reasons - I had never cruised with this line before and the itinerary was what I wanted. - Roatan and Belize especially. I've cruised with Royal Caribbean in the past and enjoyed it. Last September I cruised ... Read more

We love choosing Princess and the Regal has raised the bar. Service was outstanding across the board - the quality of the food (in my opinion) has gotten better. I really enjoyed the Crab Shack specialty dining.The Food in the Horizon ... Read more

This was our ninth Princess Cruise and our first on the new generation ships (Royal Princess). We had a very enjoyable cruise with friends, and especially enjoyed the islands of St. Kitts, St. Lucia, Antiqua, and St. Thomas/St. John. ... Read more

Embarking went very smooth. We got right into our room and meet Rolando. He did a great job. The ships layout is not the best. A lot of floors do not go all the way around. There was a lot of vibration as we sailed, almost like a shaft was ... Read more

We chose Princess because our friends have raved about their many cruises, and we were not disappointed. We flew in from upstate NY and spent a few days in Key Largo, then returned our car to the airport and caught a taxi to the ship. ... Read more

We boarded the ship for a 6 day cruise finding the embarkation and debarkation smooth and super efficient. The food was average to slightly above average for a cruise ship. What stands out above all else was the level of service. It was ... Read more

My DH does not like sea days so this is the perfect cruise. We were off ship in a different country nearly every two days. The Island Princess is in need of some TLC. Some of the hallway carpets, especially on Emerald deck, were ripped ... Read more

This cruise fulfilled a long held ambition to do the Panama Canal. That part was brilliant. The ship was Ok but needs a bit of an upgrade. There was a lot of rust showing through on the decks and not a lot of maintenance appeared to ... Read more

My wife and I love this ship. Great deck plans, so much to do, bands were great, dancing was great, all was great, except the food quality declined since our cruise last January. Our cabin was large and everything was nice, except the ... Read more

We try always to cruise on Princess because they consistently offer a very good value for our money. Food, service, cleanliness and condition of ship is always excellent. The Island Princess is not a mega ship, approximately 2,200 ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we obviously wanted to cruise the Panama Canal. We do not cruise every year, nor have we had particular loyalty to any one cruise line. We have, however, been on around 10 cruises over the years. We had ... Read more

This was an amazing "bucket list" trip through the Panama Canal! The service was stellar as was the food in the any time dining room. Loved the pizza for lunch in Sabatinis. We spent the sea days in the sanctuary and most ... Read more

A Panama Canal cruise was on our to-do list for a long time. The Island Princess is a mid-sized ship, so it doesn't have a lot of entertainment venues. Our low-end balcony cabin was just right, as we didn't spend a lot of time there. At ... Read more

First of all, the Royal Princess is a very large ship. This didn't bother me. It is decorated beautifully, and in the hallways to the cabins, there are photos sent in by Princess passengers. Our Deck 11 mini-suite felt big, and was ... Read more
