We sailed the Royal last year, and decided to give the Regal a try. If you like the Royal, you'll like the Regal, and conversely, if you don't like the Royal, you won't like the Regal, as the ships are identical except for one thing-on the ... Read more

We have traveled on princess many times and have found them to be the best and the most bang for the money. The sailing on the Regal has prov3en to be a wonderful eye opener to the future progress of the princess line to make the future ... Read more

The cruise was chosen by my partner, so I had little say in the destination or cruise line. We sailed on the Regal Princess...an impressive, huge ship with many amenities and MANY people. This is NOT the ship to cruise if you are looking ... Read more

It was our 6th holiday saillng with Princess and we've loved them all. Although Princess is known to draw an older crowed, the Holiday sailings tend to be more inter-generational. We have 2 children, 13 and 10, and they had lots of fun. ... Read more

My wife's 60th BD loomed large in our planning and we always wanted to go to the Panama Canal so this was a great way to combine the two. On top of that, she was and still is a New Year's Baby so just any old First Night party would not ... Read more

1. Thank you for bringing back some higher end clothing like Tommy Bahama. I bought a jacket. 2. Really enjoyed the Crab Shack. 3. Thanks for the upgrade to a mini suite, a first for us. 4. The $199 photo package, about time the ... Read more

A great itinerary on a poor ship. My bad for not following Cruise Critic comments on the 2015 "refurbishment". Added 120 cabins and ripped out lounge space - not a good result for the passenger. Double Level Universe ... Read more

This is my second cruise and my husbands first. We went in as a group of seven. My sister and brother-in-law had been on a cruise four times. In their opinion this had been the worst cruise ever. They had travelled in different ... Read more

The ship was outdated, small, and smelled like mildew in several locations (most notably the elevators towards ship's aft and the hallways. The crew, while helpful, was not anywhere near as energetic and engaging as they have been on ... Read more

Loved the cruise - it was a repeat visit to the Panama Canal for us. Two of the ports were especially fun - San Juan del Sur in Nicaragua and Cartagena in Colombia. We enjoyed both immensely. The staff on the ship were great, and the ... Read more

While the cruise is titled the Panama Canal, you never disembark from the ship while traversing the Panama Canal. Ambiance - Boat is smaller so many things that I enjoyed on other cruises were absent such as multiple ... Read more

This was the longest cruise that we have been on, and first time on Princess. The entire trip was very enjoyable. The ship was nicely decorated for the holidays, and never seemed crowded. We had an balcony cabin that was great for transit ... Read more

We wanted to get away for the holidays, so we chose this cruise based on the eastern Caribbean itinerary. The ship is much larger than the type of ship we usually prefer, but although full, there was still plenty of room so that we ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it went to St. Lucia over Christmas. We are in our 30's with no kids. Embarkation and disembarkation were the smoothest we have had in a long time. We loved that our cabin was ready when we got on the ... Read more

I have not done Cruise Critic in awhile, but even though I have a zillion things to play catch-up on, I feel that I have a responsibility to share my opinion of the Royal Princess. After all, I read all of the reviews previously, which ... Read more

Holiday cruise on the Royal princess..perfect in many ways. Service, food, staff attitude, spa and a spacious ship where even with 4000 on board, it feels like the whole ship is yours to enjoy. Enclave in the spa was well worth $200/pp for ... Read more

This cruise was reasonably priced and full of good activities. The staff was efficient and friendly. The ports were interesting, even though we had visited them multiple times. Our stateroom was small and had a slightly musty smell, and ... Read more

I have sailing many times with Princess and always had a good time. I was very disappointed with the Regal for many reason. Her cabins are much smaller than other ships and the balconies were very small, there is no outside promenade deck, ... Read more
