We like to take a cruise right after New Years. The fares are excellent and there are some nice perks added, especially with the Medallion program. We are Platinum members having sailed Princess 7 times now. Embarkation was super fast. We were onboard by 11am. This is nice as you really do get an extra day onboard. Like most Princess ships this boat has the same restaurants, bar areas, entertainment and usual shops. We got to our room immediately and even though Edward wasn't quite finished he told us to put our carry on bags in and to go check the ship out. First stop the buffet for lunch. I always do the carving station and it never disappoints. We bought a coffee card prior boarding and that lasted all week. No extra charge for lg or sm coffee drinks or specialty drinks. There is no punch card, you just swipe your medallion. By the way, I recommend getting a sports band when the shop opens, it not as intrusive as the lanyard neckband for Medallion. Never quite got the hang of WIFI using it as you must carry your cell phone everywhere. That's unnecessary and annoying. We had a balcony room all the way forward and it was rocky indeed the first few nights heading to Princess Cay. I like being forward on all cruises but never felt the bumping as hard as on this ship. After St. Martin it seemed much smoother all the way home. We had selected late dining as Princess site listed it as 7:15. Onboard it was 7:45. Much too late, so we met with the Maitre de at 1pm and he changed us from the Concerto DR to Allegro. Lots of empty table as this is also the Anytime DR. Our waiter left such a negative impression on me I never learned his name. He never explained the menu or made recommendations . We easily were in and out within an hour. Including dessert. Service felt rushed and impersonal. I met with the DR supervisor and made him aware, but the waiter never improved his service but the supervisor was all over us. Got annoying after a few nights. Food got a C. The beef Wellington was the best Ive had on a cruise ship but other entrees didn't fare as well. There were two formal nights and of course, the shorts people show up. Rules aren't enforced, but come on, put pants on. Spent nights near the pool as there was a full moon and people watched. Movies shown were Ad Astra , Downtown Abbey, Judy, etc... Didn't do any shows but there was usually great music in the Atrium area. Crooners was always packed and the Bellini bar was nice. we did an excursion thru Princess to St Johns. Ferry to the island then a open bus tour of the island. This guy got no tip from me as the tour was all about him. He went on and on about the Numi Diet or drink that is supposedly a miracle cure. The tree is native to the island and this guy had a pharmaceutical grudge , ranting about the wonders the leaves did for his broken collar bone. He made his point, but left us 20 minutes to sit on the road as he spoke about it. The ride took us past Trunk Beach which looked beautiful and then the ride back to port was so horrifyingly bumpy we all thought we'd need a chiropractor . He left us no time to shop in St. John so I was very disappointed. I can't recommend it. The rest of the cruise was fine, 3 sea days are awesome, met very nice people and then --SURPRISE-- Regal was going into wet dock when we got back to Ft L. Disembarkation was super fast. All in all good. Read Less

We chose this cruise as we wanted to totally relax and as we had been to St. Thomas and St. Maarten before and LOVE both these ports, we knew we could just meander about, take our time and enjoy the sea days as well as ports. This cruise was to celebrate our retirement and was perfect in every way. Having been on numerous cruise lines in the past as well as 4 other Princess cruises, we found ourselves always saying "this is much better on Princess." An example … my husband purchased a drinks package - I do not drink much at all so did not feeling if I wanted an occasional drink, I could buy one. On other cruise lines, both of us would have to buy the drinks package, they wouldn't let one person only in the cabin buy one. For dining, we had any time dining as each day is different and we wanted the flexibility of different times / meeting different people. We never had to wait, no matter what time we chose. On other cruise lines, unless a reservation was made, there was definitely a wait! Medallion class ship - way ahead of the curve on other lines - as you approach your door, the medallion unlocks it, you tap to get on/off the ship, order food/drinks, etc - well done Princess. My favourite though was abilitiy from the app on our phones to find my husband - the best! The staff - very customer-service focused. Again on other ships at breakfast, you automatically got your own coffee/juice at the buffet which I always do. On Regal, as soon as you sat down, someone was there offering coffee and whatever type of juice you would like. Similarly, when finished, the plate was taken away. While they were very unobtrusive, they were there magically when you needed them. Dining room food was amazing. Again, on other cruise lines, to get the level of food we had in the dining room, we had to go to speciality restaurants. No need on Regal - the food was top class in the dining room with lobster, lamb, Beef Wellington, etc and many other quality choices normally only served in the specialties. Entertainment: - again ahead of the curve - not only with their production shows and props which were totally amazing and professional but they had the rights to "the voice" - which the called "Voice of the Ocean - with same stage set-up with chairs/judges, etc. - well done Princess! As always, we love "Movies under the Stars". Cruise director was great and a natural comedian - I always judge the entertainment by how good the cruise director is and this one did not disappoint! Lots of choices also in other eating venues - the International Café is one of our favourites with cappuchinos, lattes, etc. but I could also get my favourite soy milk if I asked for it. Breakfast sandwiches, fabulous voghurt parfaits, lunch salads, sandwiches, deserts that are out of this world and much more and all free. Some other cruise lines have converted their cafes into Starbucks that is not free - these things all add up. Alfredos is another free restaurant that makes fabulous home-made pizza, calzones, pasta, etc. - a real find and scrumptious. Outside food such as the grills, BBQ's ice cream are available constantly and great. We love the ports on this cruise. For us the idea was to relax with not too many shore excursions as our last cruise on a different line was chock full of excursions in Europe so the idea was to take it easy - mission accomplished. Princess Cays offered a free beach trip with wonderful catered BBQ lunch and everything you could want including the turquoise clear water of the Bahamas. A very relaxing day. For us, we love to wander around St. Thomas and St. Martin is our favourite island. The shops in both locales are great and for us, we love there are so many, especially jewellery as it is a great way to compare and get the best deals. St. Martin has the benefit of the dutch and French side including the myriad of shops in Phillipsburg and the great boardwalk next to the beach which is also stunning with a great backgroup of mountains reaching as far as the eye can see. We went to Maho beach area as we had stayed in a hotel there before and it was great to see it had totally recovered from the hurricane. Lovely mall at the port - Havensight which we adore walking around on our way back from town. The main thing about these ports - totally safe and amazing friendliness of the residents - make you feel valued. Sea days offered lots of options with line dancing, bingo, unusual competitions, etc - just wonderful. This cruise, I can honestly say, made me feel I do not want another cruise line, except Princess - the best cruise out of the 16 we have taken to date! We also had a VIP casino offer on this cruise and the casino spoiled us with many lovely gifts and amazing service. Read Less

This was an awesome way to spend our family vacation. One of our favorite things for our family was our 7:45 traditional dining with our amazing waiters Apichat “Api” and Dandreve “Dan”. They went above and beyond every night at dinner to make us have a wonderful time. They made our experience perfect! Our whole trip was wonderful! The shore excursion on St. Marteen that we did was the America’s Cup sailing race. That was an amazing excursion. We loved it and would highly recommend it. All of the crew on the Regal were very helpful, friendly and attentive to anything we needed. The port of call at Princess Cays was excellent. We were very impressed with how nice that port was and having food available on the island was awesome. We rented a Hobie sailboat and enjoyed being able to do that. Our ship was the only one there, which was really nice. It would not have been near as good if it had been crowded. We enjoyed all aspects of our cruise! Read Less
