We chose this cruise because the ports were different from other Caribbean cruises we have taken. Embarkation was a bit busy but the process was very smooth and did not take long. Disembarkation was the smoothest I have ever experienced. ... Read more

If you are looking for a boring cruise this is the one! They have replaced the poolside entertainment with a TV, then they played the same animal clips over and over EVERYDAY. Ship was pretty, but the bigger ship just had more cabins, ... Read more

This was our second time on the Royal Princess. We found the food not up to the last time we travelled. We had notes the last few days saying that they where working on the balconies and may have to enter our room to get out to do ... Read more

We are Princess Platinum, and although we have our issues with the company, we find their ships and staff still a cut above the other in the "reasonable" cruise line pricing sheet group. Cabin: B524; Steward, Ricky. ... Read more

This was our first time on Princess and were looking forward to having a mini suite. However, while the cabin was nice, it's location in the ship, two decks below the skywalk, and the constant vibration in our cabin, made it less than ... Read more

Amazing 10 days onboard the Royal Princess. We arrived at the port around 11am and was walking on 20 min later. This is my 16th cruise with Princess so no long lines to wait in. First impressions of the interior was wonderful. ... Read more

We've done this cruise before. We like 10 days vs the more common 7 day cruise. We also really enjoy the islands that the cruise goes to. Embarkation went very fast and smooth. After dropping off our carry on bags in our cabin we went ... Read more

We chose The Royal Princess because of our previous cruises on this ship. The addition of the stairs in the forward area was a big improvement. It is still a difficult ship to navigate because of the size. Getting to the Allegro dinning ... Read more

We have cruised over 30 times, but only once before on Princess, in Alaska. We gave it rave reviews. So we talked another couple (first timers) into traveling with us to the Panama Canal. The first two days at sea went well, except for a ... Read more

This is our second cruise to the Caribbean on the coral princess. While the ship is starting to show its age on a lot of different levels, we feel it is very well-designed. This is the second year in a row that some of the ports ... Read more

After three Royal Caribbean cruises, we chose Princess for comparison. Embarkation was more of a hassle, with a long outside line for 45 minutes (@11am). Once we got inside it was a reasonable 30 minutes to boarding. Regal is a very ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise on Princess, on their newest ship, yet when I compare it to the first one I took 11 years ago, they have really cut back on the quality of their food, staff is grumpy and definitely have an attitude. I was openly ... Read more

We chose this cruise to take a break from winter. Boarding went smoothly and efficiently. Once in our cabin we met our steward. Muster was done well and we enjoyed sail away. The cruise was rather low key and the food was a ... Read more

We choose this cruise based on its destination ports and the weather in February. We wanted a break from the Winter snows which as it turned out, never occurred back home! Practically a last minute decision, we got a great deal on a ... Read more
