Royal Princess Cruise Review by 4cats4me
- Sail Date: April 2019
- Destination: Mexican Riviera
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Balcony (obstructed view)
Lots of good entertainment. Mariachis, dance bands, et cet. Always something going on in the atrium. Production show Bravo is excellent. Strong vocalists, plus opera singers.
Alfredo’s very good. Took one Princess tour to Mahajuitas and Yelapa. Lots of fun.
The Mexican Riviera itinerary is actually lots more fun than the Caribbean.
We plan to sail the Royal often, as long as she is homeported in Los Angeles.
Didn’t really care for new cocktail menu at Crooner’s, though, and drink prices have increased. Ship is in great shape. Very, very clean. All employeees were constantly wiping down and scrubbing everything at the buffet. Lots and lots of variety at buffet. At least 5 types of carving stations on many evenings,vans lots of shrimps and mussels available.
Great variety of salad veggies and fresh fruit. Plenty of lounge chairs. No fights over loungers here on the West Coast, unlike what I’ve noticed when we cruise out of the East Coast where everyone seems so desperate for loungers and sun, those escaping brutal winters everywhere. Out here in California I’ve never seen oversaving of loungers, probably since most of the ship is comprised of West Coast people who have decent weather year round. All the more reason to cruise out of California, no airfare, plus less fights onboard.

No view to the water while lying in bed. Balcony is one-third covered by balcony above, 2/3 open. So much room
We measured balcony and it is about 9-10 feet long. It is slightly angled, hence the one foot discrepancy.
Extremely pronounced movement. We will not book this cabin again due to the far distance from everything.
Very quiet cabin and you cannot hear the showroom below.

MazatlanWe hung out at the cruise port and had margaritas and nachos right there. With three ships in port there were a lot of people, which made for lots of fun!View All 593 Mazatlan Cruise Port Reviews
