Embarkation While I could’ve taken the Elite line, it snaked around the hall, while the “regular” line was very quick. No brainer. Unfortunately, after we got our cruise cards, it took a long time to get upstairs to ... Read more

We chose this cruise to visit some islands we had not been to, and to snorkel their reefs. This was our first Princess cruise and our first 10 day cruise. The embarkation process was a breeze, and we went directly to lunch and ... Read more

NYC to FLL via Regal Princess - with 2 pre-cruise nights in NYC. We were on the very, very early morning flight from Edmonton to Toronto to Laguardia Airport. Perfect flights, connections and timing with Air Canada. Can't say enough good ... Read more

My wife & I chose this particular transitional cruise because it left from our home port of NYC to the Caribbean, because it was fairly reasonable & it avoided flying both ways from it's final port of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Since we ... Read more

I recently returned from the 10 night Princess Regal repositioning cruise from New York to the Caribbean and ending in Ft. Lauderdale. We took this identical cruise on the same ship in 2015 and after sailing over 35 cruises, we thought ... Read more

Chose this cruise for relaxation and the itinerary. Disappointed in the embarkation procedure, with technology today there should not be a reason to stand in long lines, even with elite status. The ship itself is fairly new, cabins well ... Read more

We took this re positioning cruise from 10/27-11/6. The Experience was great. From the time we got on until we got off the Princess Company kept the standards high and they did everything they could to give you a great cruise experience. ... Read more

Chose cruise based on itinerary, timing, reducing flying to one way and value. Cabin and balcony small. Anytime dining was not well done with lines and poor coordination between sections of the same dining room. After waiting in line, ... Read more

We wanted a quick, short cruise to just get away. We could drive to NY so we selected this cruise. We were uncertain about cruising on the Regal as the size is getting to be more than we like. We love the Ruby, Emerald, Caribbean, etc, ... Read more

The Princess bus driver from the airport to the Regal princess was helpful, fast and courteous. The embarkation process was smooth, fast and easy. There were small lines but they moved quickly. There were around 58 of us seniors and all I ... Read more

I have sailed on Princess several times and was always pleased with the service, attention to detail. This was my first time traveling north instead of south so being on deck or on our balcony wasn't a possibility. The crew, our ... Read more

Always wanted to give Princess a try, but she fell short for us. Balcony cabin was very small. Bathroom was the smallest we have ever seen. Couldn't get dressed in there, and shower knobs were broken. Our fridge was broken, and the beds ... Read more

So disappointing in so many ways. The best part of the trip was spending time with our friends, and the music in the Piazza which was great. The cruise director started off with a tacky political joke and the comic mimicked the LGBT ... Read more

Sailing out of Brooklyn was a big plus. No flights, just an easy drive from NJ. Embarkation was easy. I needed a wheel chair which I arranged in advance and they took me right to the room without any hassle. The service of everyone that ... Read more

Some quick observations re: our Regal Princess Canada/NE cruise last week. Airport transfers: We purchased transfers to and from LaGuardia. A previous passenger from the cruise ship who was dropped at the airport accidentally left one ... Read more

We sailed with two other couples and loved every minute of our cruise experience. Especially loved our Zumba, line dancing and belly dancing classes. Wish there had been a dance class every day. Our first port of call was Newport and ... Read more

We arrived in New York 2 days before embarkation, so there was no problem getting to the port. We arrived around 1pm, joined the long line which moved quite quickly and were on board by 2. The ship is very nice, the piazza area is very ... Read more

We've only cruised once before, and that was on Holland America. That trip was spoiled completely by the chainsmoker on the balcony below us. I chose this cruise on Princess because of their smoking policy, and I can say I had only two or ... Read more

Wife and I were looking for the fall cruise to New England and went Princess, as we sailed with them 2 times before, but the mistake was the ship size. The Regal is too big! Long line to get on. Our cabin was an extended mini-suite ( ... Read more

We loved the Regal. Nice ship with ample room for so many passengers. Beautiful! Crown Grill and Allegro have great steaks and specialty foods. The Horizon has variety but of course as Lido it has a lot of people and warm not hot food. ... Read more

Not enough specialty restaurants. Dining room, menu selection was awful. Very strange and foreign meal selections! Not enough American comfort food. And also, "anyime dining" is not anytime,... its certain times, and the lines ... Read more

This was a very good cruise, with only a few minor issues. All in all, the Regal Princess is an incredible boat that you can have a ton of fun on. We did! Embarkation went smoothly. There was, apparently, quite a zoo out front of the ... Read more
