We chose this cruise because of the destinations that it was going to. We stopped at Grand Turk, Puerto Rico, St. Thomas and Bermuda. The destinations were beautiful, the boat was beautiful and the staff was wonderful. We have been on two ... Read more

We'll start with the premise that while every word of this missive is true...accurate...not vituperative...and/or personal, we suspect, fully suspect...that the true assessment of our cruise will either fall o deaf ears or just be ... Read more

I was presently surprised by how exceptional the food was on this ship. The buffets were the best on any line we have sailed, (Celebrity, Holland America and Norwegian). Variety was unbelievable. We had traditional dining, early seating, ... Read more

Embarkation – When our taxi arrived at the road that leads to the terminal in Red Hook, the line of personal vehicles and taxis was incredibly long, so we got out and walked most of the way. No biggie. Once we handed off our luggage ... Read more

Just got back Tuesday evening from Regal Princess on a 10 day cruise. Our 14th cruise, first with Princess. Too much inequality that is on this ship everywhere. They have cabanas on public space that they charge extra for. There were only ... Read more

The Regal Princess is a beautiful ship; however, its design and amenities leave much to be desired. This was our 22nd cruise and it was just okay. First, the embarkation in NY was the worst we have ever experienced: poor signage, long ... Read more

This was our 5th cruise with Princess and our first on the Regal. At first look the ship seemed huge and intimidating. Once on though, we felt right at home by the second day. The embarkation was handled very well, waiting time was ... Read more

This was our 2nd NE/Canada cruise with Princess. We did the same cruise 2 years ago on the Caribbean Princess, although the itinerary ran in the opposite order (NYC-Newport-Boston-Bar Harbor-St John-Halifax-NYC). That time, our 1 sea day ... Read more

We just returned from a October Sailing to Canada/New England on the Regal Princess. The ship is beautiful, clean, and new. The decor is tasteful and lovely. Our mini-suite room was a bit smaller than expected but very livable with plenty ... Read more

There is really nothing that I can say that's positive except for the staff. Stateroom: The balcony stateroom was tiny and only had one chair. The balcony would seat maybe two. There were no drawers for putting clothes away. ... Read more

Beautiful new ship. Embarkation/disembarkation went perfectly. We arrived at the port (Brooklyn) at about 11:00 AM and were shown to a waiting area where coffee/tea and pastries were served. At about 12 noon we boarded the ship and ... Read more

As a long time Princess cruiser, my wife and I invited an 81 year old aunt to join us on this cruise out of NY. With summer dragging on forever these days, early Oct. is too soon for Fall colors. The ship is very nice and the ports are ... Read more

I just returned from a seven day cruise to New England and Canada aboard the Regal Princess. This ship is very new, and very large, with about 3500 passengers. The ship felt very crowded and there were long lines for just about ... Read more

I could not really think of a "better" title but since the last review I wrote was about as low and negative as you could get this is almost the exact opposite. The first thing that's worth pointing out if you go out of Red ... Read more

This was the 3rd annual Sisters' Cruise. We found the ship and frontline staff to be excellent. I am not a smoker, but found the cushions in furniture of smoking area on Deck 17 to be horrendous. New cushions for those folks, please. The ... Read more

This was our 4th cruise on Princess, first on the Regal. The ship was immaculate, but very large. We were in a mid ship mini-suite which gave us plenty of room for ourselves and to entertain a small group for an impromptu wine tasting. ... Read more

I do not usually write reviews about my travels. I have to say that this is most dysfunctional ship I have ever been on and in general the worst cruise. The elevators were constantly crowded. There aren't any stairs at the mid-ship and ... Read more
