Elevators and power outlets made it poor

Royal Princess Cruise Review by ron90069

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2019
  • Destination: the Mexican Riviera
  • Cabin Type: Interior

Elevator service was abysmal. LONG waits and overcrowding.

The room had NO 110 volt outlets near the bed, only 220v. They did give me an extension cord, but that was a major tripping hazard (and the cord was frayed). I ended up DUCT-TAPING it across the ceiling, an ugly sight indeed.

My cabins on my Norwegian cruises had no such problems!

Too much formality for me - this was a vacation and shouldn't require formalwear.

The buffet closed at 11p, and the only all-night food available consisted of 5-6 premade dishes that all contained foods I can't eat. The room service breakfast menu was great, and food was brought eother on time or 10-20 minutes EARLY.

The video arcade was not available to adults (I enjoy an arcade game now and then).

The casino slots machines paid out almost nothing - I spent $2400 and the best I hit was ONE $350 win. That is shameful.

Sadly, this site doesn't let me upload pics from my cell phone.

Cabin Review

Cabin IA R411

Cabin was surprisingly comfortable and nicely sized. Shower water pressure was good, service was good. The TV channel selection lacked any of the network (OTA) channels, but a good selection of movies and older TV shows (ok, The Love Boat was a "gimme").

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Los Angeles

Took FOREVER to board. No casino-invited-guest special boarding. Total cattlecall!

Cabo San Lucas

The ship should provide printed port area maps! Totally a tourist trap.


Less touristy. "Michael's Gallery" is a mile walk, but very reasonably-priced hand-blown and hand-painted glass and clay items.
