Sail Date: Jun 2015
Cabin: Mini-Suite with Balcony

This was the second time I had cruised with Princess Cruises. Our first cruise trip was a Mediterranean Cruise through Italy, Greece and Croatia. This cruise was the UK (England, Scotland, Northern Ireland), Ireland and France.

The Royal Princes had some outstanding features and a few spots to improve. I'll tackle them by category:

Cabin - We had a mini-suite (L217) and the room was very comfortable. Plenty of space to move about. The bed was comfortable. The actual tub (rather than a tiny shower) with shower was great. Decent room in a bathroom on a ship. The major disappointment is the balcony. This is basically a space to stand when entering and leaving a port. Two chairs and a small table but honestly two people can't comfortably sit on the balcony at the same time. The other draw back was the TV selection. Princess had ESPN Caribbean which while sailing the UK during Wimbledon week consistently showed Billiards, Horse Riding and Cricket. We did not get to know our Cabin Stewart very well but he did his job efficiently and timely. All-in-all we enjoyed the room.
