Regal Princess Cruise Review by TopCat57
- Sail Date: April 2017
- Destination: Baltic Sea
What was missing on this cruise was a "wow" factor - Yes, St Petersburg was clearly a highlight in terms of destination but it was more about the lack of energy on the ship to engaged with passengers. Compared to the previous cruise which had Martin Moss as the Cruise Director (who was fantastic), the current Cruise Director, Billy Hygate appeared to lack any overt enthusiasm and was rarely seen or heard around the ship. Apparently he had been with Princess for 45 years and it showed. His assistant also appeared over awed by him during the Wake Show.
The Production shows were first rate and guest performers were entertaining.
I must admit that it is disappointing that some passengers (and nationalities) lack a standard of manners that detracts from the overall on-board cruise experience - I refer here to courtesy around entering and existing lifts and behaviours around the Horizon Court and Buffet.
