  3. Royal Princess
Wanted to see more of Ireland, Scotland and England without having to drive. Foods in the Harvest dining room over cooked, dry and bland. Most foods are premade and sitting in warmers. Pizzas, hot dogs, ice creams, etc. are set menus and not customizable. Senior Crew members rude and unapproachable. Shuttle services for ports poorly organized. Long distances from docks to key sites. Entertainment and social activities are not aimed for seniors. Bands and singers were quite good and varied. Wide variety of choices and mainly held in piazza which allows comfortable seating and suroundings. Social Director fails to make any announcements which would allow you to attend events as all activities are not always in the newsletter. Beautiful ship but with 3600 passengers becomes crowded. Stewards and waiters are quite cheerful but not as relaxed on other cruise lines. Does have some pluses but not ideal for seniors or disabled. Would not travel Princess again.

Definitely not a Royal Cruise
