This was a very good cruise from Ft Lauderdale and the Royal Princess is a very beautiful ship. Overall, it was a very good cruise with the only drawback being the smallest balcony I have ever seen on a ship. Very disappointing because we were in a Penthouse Suite. The food in the Horizon Court was outstanding. Dining room food was good but the evening menus lacked imagination and variety. In traditional seating, the service was good until anytime diners came in and then the waiters were trying to serve too many people at different stages of the meal and service became very slow. Sabatini's was outstanding for breakfast and the food and service was exceptional. The Crown Grill was also exceptional. Entertainment was very good with a mix of production shows and guest entertainers, comedians and magicians. Enjoyed the big TV screens in the suite which made it very nice to sit back and watch a movie. Also lacking was lectures during the cruise about caribbean history which would have been nice. Because of rough seas we were unable to go into Princess Cayes on both legs of the cruise which was also a disappointment.

Cabin Review

Penthouse Suite with Balcony
Cabin S4 R608
Suite was very nice with two big screen TV's that made it nice to watch a movie. Bathroom was also very large and nice. The balcony was the smallest I have ever seen on a cruise ship and was unusable, only about 3 feet wide. Enjoyed the Concierge just across the hall.
