I loved The Caribbean Princess so I thought I couldn't go wrong with Princess. Boy, was I wrong. This ship is like an experiment gone wrong. Take all the bad ideas on all my previous cruises and put them all together, and I found it in one ... Read more

We chose this cruise based on the transatlantic itinerary. Embarkation and lifeboat drill were flawless. We particularly like the inside lifeboat drill where you are able to sit in air conditioning for the 20 minutes or so. Other lines ... Read more

Loved the ship although the food was a huge disappointment and the cruise directing staff lacked enthusiasm. Also seemed like there were less entertainment options compared to other cruises I've been on. Getting off the ship was crazy ... Read more

We booked two cruises back to back at the end of February. Since we live in South Florida, we check for price drops and amenities and book when the pricing is right for us. We drive to Port Everglades and use an off site parking company. ... Read more

I work at a school and my mom and I decided to take a trip over my spring break. We flew to Ft. Lauderdale and made our way easily via a taxi to the ship. Embarkation was quick and effortless. Our cabin was Aloha 326 and we loved ... Read more

Experienced cruiser - second time on Princess, first time on the Regal. Embarkation- Port Everglades is not very convenient - horrible traffic jams on arrival to the port that delayed our arrival. Once we got near the terminal, there ... Read more

This was my 9th Princess cruise and the first time I've sailed on the Royal Class ships. I concur with other reviewers that the three glaring things were the lack of midship stairs (it's a huge ship and really needs them), the shrimpy ... Read more

This is our second Princess cruise and we decided to do a 20 day back-to-back Caribbean cruise to save on air fares from the UK. The ship itself looked great both outside and in. Princess cruises seem to have achieved a really good blend ... Read more

We decided we wanted to try a more adult friendly cruise and the ports were what we were looking for as well as a new cruise line and new ship. This was our first Princess cruise but not our first cruise. Most unfriendly staff ever on ... Read more

We are long time Princess cruisers (family of four) and we were delighted to cruise on the relatively new Royal Princess. I won't go into embarkation details since as Preferred Guests, it was easy for us. But I will say to allow time if ... Read more

My first cruise, I didn't have much time to research before booking, but I was very happy with the Regal. It's a nice ship, big but did not feel too big to me. Many of the other in-depth reviews on here about the boat, it's layout etc are ... Read more
