Sail Date: Aug 2014
Cabin:

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 were blocked. Emergency evacuation would be disastrous. One section of the Horizon Court buffet was Asian food which was puzzling because we were on a Mediterranean cruise.

SUPPOSED UPGRADE: To get a bigger balcony, as repeat cruisers, we were supposedly “upgraded” to a fantail room, next to a corner Owner’s Suite, where we: 1) felt constant side-to-side fishtail motion; 2) heard the nightly Vista lounge; & 3) felt & heard the boat’s engines when we entered/left TEN ports.

SMALL SEA WALK & JOGGING DECK: Seawalk’s a 60-foot glass-bottomed section on a 1,083-foot ship. We enjoyed the Sea Princess’s full-ship outdoor walking deck. The Regal Princess’s outside, 17th floor, 1/4 of the ship, jogging/walking fitness deck was next to the boat’s exhaust.
