Royal Princess Cruise Review by hdano55

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2019
  • Destination: the Mexican Riviera
  • Cabin Type: Mini-Suite with Balcony

We booked this cruise to experience of the remodel Royal Princess. We have sailed this itinerary several times, so main purpose was to enjoy the cruise. This was a Medallion ship and the embarkation was the smoothest I'm had. Just walk up to the scanner, show your passport and on you go. Also, embarkation started very early which gave us more time on the ship. The entertainment was overall one of the best I've seen. Food selection and quality was good but not exceptional, had a disappointing experience at Sabatini's. Service was great all around. The casino was disappointing. They try to put too many slot machines in a small space, leading to trouble getting in and out of the area. There was an actual cigar lounge on the ship. It was a little small and got crowded sometimes, but a comfortable place when you can get a seat. Overall the cruise experience was good.

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin MC B325

Cabin was roomy and comfortable. Balcony is a little crowded when 2 people are out there.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Cabo San Lucas

Just walked into town and went to Cabo Wabo for drinks and snacks.


Hired a cab to take us around town for the highlights, then stopped for lunch by the ocean.

Puerto Vallarta

Took a taxi into Old Town for shopping and lunch. Very relaxing.
