This was my first time sailing on Princess Cruises, and of course, the first time on the Regal Princess. My general impression of this cruise was very good, although there were some things that bugged me. I'll try to detail them below, but I want you to know that I had a great time, and overall the folks on the Regal did a great job! I'll try to break down my impressions below:

Embarkation: The embarkation at Port Everglades went very smoothly. We were able to catch a Princess bus at the Sheraton Hotel. Even though it was a rainy day in Ft. Lauderdale, we were able to get to the ship within a half hour. We were off the bus and onboard ship with a half hour. The staterooms were ready so our group was able to drop our bags in our staterooms before heading to lunch. We left the hotel at noon, and were aboard by 1:00. The safety drill was held about 3:15. For some strange reason, Princess still requires that you take your life vest to the safety orientation. They need to change that.... The safety demonstration also pointed out one of the least liked parts of the ship.... the elevators.... I ended up climbing 8 flights of stairs because I could cram on to an elevator.....

Stateroom: I was travelling solo with a group of 14 friends, and to save on some money, I booked an inside stateroom. I booked M111, an inside stateroom all the way forward on the Marina deck. I have never stayed In an inside stateroom, and I was very worried that I would feel claustrophobic. It actually was very nice. I had friends travelling with me with balconies, so I didn't miss the view too much. The layout of this stateroom was perfect. Open the door, bathroom and closet as you enter and then the bedroom. It was perfect for one person. I don't know about two....
