I loved this cruise. The shore excursions were all amazing. Some better than others, but more of a matter of the hoards of people at some of the destinations ie: The Vatican. The Island Princess' Horizon Court is nicer that any I've seen. ... Read more

First of all lets have the good stuff. The food in all the "free" restaurants was excellent. It was as good as the Celebrity cruise we had last year.[perhaps a little better in the evening dining rooms]. The restaurant staff and the cabin ... Read more

We had a port-side full suite on deck 14. Not sure if it was a fluke, but most days we seemed to have the afternoon sun on our balcony, a nice way to end each day. As expected for a brand new ship, our stateroom and the whole ship was in ... Read more

CONFUSING SHIP LAYOUT & PUZZLING HORIZON COURT BUFFET: To get off the back of the boat (think Horizon Court), you had to walk to the Deck 7 Atrium/Midship elevators or stairs. Below Deck 7 aft elevators were used for freight/stairs ... Read more

We have cruised on the Princess ships several times and have always enjoyed the ships. The Regal was not designed well. It has no stairs in the middle and the ones on the end don't go all the way up or down. We would come to dead ends ... Read more

I traveled alone this cruise and was a bit concerned about that. However, it turned out to be no problem, friends were everywhere. This was the most international and age diverse cruise I have ever been on, by far. I absolutely felt like I ... Read more

First the good news- the ship is elegantly appointed...badly designed in many ways (but you've read all of that in other reviews). It is as clean and well maintained as many operating rooms I've seen !. The staff is hard working and well ... Read more

Our fifth cruise and almost a repeat itinerary of our cruise on the Ruby Princess last year. Embarking in Venice was well organized. Sailing at 2300 gave a model village look to the city that was lovely. Wonderful opera music played which ... Read more

The food was disappointing. All the seafood smelled terrible. To the point that you could tell when a seafood plate was coming your way. We avoided all seafood after not having a good time at sabatinis. All other food was ok but nothing ... Read more

Boarded the ship in Venice - this was a smooth process with not a real queue in sight. In fact this was a consistent theme throughout the cruise, and it came as a really pleasant surprise that 3600 passengers could move about the decks, ... Read more

This is the largest ship we have been on and are used to 2500 pax size. WHile it didn't seem crowded it seemed to have lost all its personality and I felt when dining like I was in a shopping mall food court sometimes. The staff are well ... Read more

We joined Regal Princess on its June 2nd cruise out of Venice. Embarkation was fine and we were on the ship at 1pm. The first things that strikes you as you board is the ships sea-walk protruding out of deck 16 which is quite novel. Once ... Read more
