the first word that comes to mind about the Royal Princess is WAIT .... The ship is very nice the main plaza has a "rich" look. the ship has a nice layout, you should never feel crowded. The shows are different every night, to satisfy every taste. Emergency drill is becoming a joke .... they do it only to annoy passengers ... what will people do in case of an emergency ... .eg. Costa Concordia .... The food is good either at the cafeteria or the dinning room. Menu covers all sections of "palate" beef, chicken, pork, vegetarian and fish. I think the staff was reaching the end of their contract .... they looked tired .... distant .... cold attitude but always polite. Saw better on other cruises we did only a dozen of cruises, first time on Princess, but never waited this long to embark the ship, never waited this long to disembark in EVERY port (up to 2 hours ).... unless you purchase a one of their excursions (read delux bus ride) Dining room you will wait to get a table if you are "selective" otherwise they place you with other who already have started their dinner ....

Your patience will be put to the test
