So glad we decided to go on this ship. Had a wonderful time even though we had been to all the ports before, some on more than 1 occasion. The Royal Princess was a beautiful ship and the crew and service providers were more than outstanding. The food was excellent even though we only ate in the dining room on two occasions. We found that the dining rooms were limited on choices that we would choose, so we opted for the Horizon Court most of the time. The food was outstanding and the choices provided were far better than we have seen on cruise ships in the last few years. The pastry shop always had delicious choices. The ship was always clean and well maintained. The entertainment was also excellent although there was only one comedian. We tend to like them more than the broadway musical shows. The live music was excellent. A band called "the Atomics" was outstanding and we greatly enjoyed the 60's night. The entertainment crew were all excellent and very friendly and made everyone feel at home. NO complaints but just a few suggestions to be made: More comedians, providing more than one bar location during happy hour (tends to get very crowded and chaotic), the smaller spaces on the Promenade Deck for sitting on deck (no longer the length of the ship) and the very restricted area for smokers. Being delegated to the very rear of the ship is not nearly enough space. Would love to see more outside space for smokers (like one side of the ship as it has always been). Everything else on this cruise was nothing but excellent!

Best Cruise!
