  3. Royal Princess
This is our 7th Princess Line ship we have sailed on and we where not disappointed. Although I do like the smaller Princess ships ie. Emerald, Caribbean, Star ect. the Royal was a pleasant surprise. Was able to do the embarkation process and be in our cabin by 11:30am. So therefore embarkation was timely and organized. Unpacked and then started the trip with many photos, meeting new people, and lunch by 2pm. This ship is very spacious and offers an array of lounges, bars, shops, restaurants and activities. Even the International Café is open 24 hours a day. What is nice on the Royal vs. the Regal is the 16th Lido deck and 17th aft is designed for those who want more resting and relaxing with a great view of the ocean. With many padded wicker lounges and chairs to offer cruises and the 17th deck aft numerous lounger chairs for sunbathers. The Regal offers a nice pool on the 17th whereas the Royal took out the pool and offers more lounger chair, dinning chair and tables. Always many friendly people talking about where they are from and sharing their life stories or traveling experience. The winds where very high during first half of the 10 day travel but settled throughout the remaining cruise. I would recommend this ship for a cruiser that wants space without compromising creature comforts. Even the interior cabin was quiet and met our needs for space and traveling. Food during formal nights was exquisite. Activities on board was endless and met our needs. Trip excursions where great and we couldn't of had a better vacation.

Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin ID B522
Met our needs, spacious and even offered a plephera of movies and TV programs for days you just want to escape the world and be with your spouse in the room. Room housekeeper K was exceptional and attentive. Room was always clean and tidy with exception of days where "privacy please" blue card on doorknob. The best.
