Royal Princess 2015

My wife and I, and another couple, just finished an April relocation cruise on this ship from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to South Hampton, England. This was a 14 day cruise that stopped at Ponta Delgado Azores, Cobh Ireland, Rotterdam Netherlands, and Zeebrugge Belgium, debarking at South Hampton. This was our first cruise on a new "mega" ship as the Royal & Regal are Princess' newest & largest cruise ships. The following dissertation is our experiences on that cruise. Please note this is our fourth cruise with Princess and our ninth in total, so we are not first time cruisers. Also, please, this is for my wife and me on the cruise we were on and based on our tastes. Your mileage may vary.

Embarkation was smooth as my wife is handicapped and as such I grabbed a Princess porter as soon as I got off the transfer bus, (not a Princess transfer) and he loaded her in a wheel chair and breezed us through the check in process and metal detectors. He then dropped us off in the Special Assistance waiting area and after a short wait another crew member took us right to our cabin. It has been, and continues to, be a very good experience with Princess' embarkation routine. While we were whisked through the process due to the wheel chair, others I spoke to felt that their experience was similar in the regular line. We started our voyage as Ruby members and attained Platinum during our cruise. Those embarkation queues seemed smooth too.

Embarkation port so no tour here. Embarkation was smooth as always. We came a day early and stayed overnight at a local hotel. Non princess transfer here.
