  3. Regal Princess
After being on the Royal, we decided to do a longer cruise on the Regal Princess. Technically our 14 days were two back-to-back 7 day cruises in and out of Ft. Lauderdale. Initial embarkation was a breeze, probably the quickest and easiest we've considering the size of the ship. But the best part was when we returned to Ft. Lauderdale and did not have to get off the ship. All the passengers staying on were sent to the Princess Theater. We clearer customs on the ship as we left the theater. With the exception that over 700 passenger had to sit there an wait about an hour for the last 2 to show up, it went well. Needless to say, when they came in there was a rousing chorus of 'BOOs'. We had traditional seating and the food was always excellent. We felt no need to pay extra for the specialty restaurants. We had booked a table of 8, but rarely did 8 show up. Usually we had 4, sometimes 6. I find it very inconsiderate for someone to book traditional seating and then NEVER show up. The entertainment, especially the production shows, were some of the best we've ever seen on Princess. It seems that the Regal has really taken it up a notch. We were quite impressed. Ports were fine, we only had to tender at Princess Cay and Grand Cayman. Docking was efficient and there was rarely a wait to get off or on the ship. We had a great time and look forward to our next Princess Cruise.
