  3. Royal Princess
We choose this cruise as it went south rather than the 4 day cruises we have done in the past. The weather did not disappoint. I was worried about the size of the ship, but there was no need to. With the areas organized the way they are, there is always a place to find solitude if that's what you want. Yes, if you want to sit in a specific area for Princess Theatre or Movies Under the Stars, you must get there early and yes, we found lots of people saving spots, but we got to those areas early enough (usually an hour early) and found what we wanted. The Entertainment was fantastic. We went to the early Princess Theatre production every night. Horizon is amazingly large and easy to navigate which we were so pleased with that we never even made it to the dining room on this cruise. We did not choose a cabin that we liked, as we were directly under the area of the outside burger place, and during the day there were chairs scraped across the floor and lots of foot steps overhead, but it was absolutely fine in the evening and at night. Service was terrific. Wherever we were, lots of people asking if we wanted or needed anything. I cannot say enough about our Stateroom Steward Christian. He always remembered our names and if he was going down the hallway, he would open our door for us before we even got there. Medallion is still in it's infancy and we only used it for opening our doors and to pay for drinks and merchandise. Messaging was easy (as long as you check frequently). Overall, yes, we would do this specific cruise again and yes, we would choose the Royal Princess.

Great Getaway
