The worst food and service we have ever experienced in over 35+ cruises. Simple dinner in a non-crowded dining room took over 1 hour and 45 minutes! Customer service was not present, except possibly our room attendant. I can count on one ... Read more

The embarkation was simple and well done. We had an obstructed balcony but since it wasn't really hot we did not spend a lot of time on the balcony. We did sit out there in port. The obstruction was not horrible because the boat only ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary, in particular, the full transit of the Panama Canal, as well as the other stops. By far, the Panama Canal transit was the highlight of the trip. Make sure you get up real early and are in ... Read more

I loved the size of this ship. Yes, it's a little older, but the minor issues were not enough to make a difference. One of the issues was not with the ship, but with Princess. Anytime dining, is not really "anytime dining" ... Read more

Third trip on the Royal and loved it again. Big enough to swallow up all 3K people and never feel crowded. Booked a suite R611 and was happy we did, the extra space let us entertain our friends and plenty of room to move around in. In ... Read more

Nice break for Easter holidays with 6 ports to keep it interesting. Beautiful Piazza with more going on there than other ships. Dining room food about the same - usually very good and sometimes on either side of that. Rooms (I was in ... Read more

This was our first TA and we had chosen the Crown Princess because we had been on the Caribbean Princess at the end of 2016. That experience was only okay, but we got a good price for our accommodations based on a "Hugh" onboard ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it had ports we were interested in, plus between the on-board credit and free gratuities you could not beat it. The other reason I am writing is the previous review I feel was way too biased. It is true ... Read more
