Regal Princess Cruise Review by ac32ph
- Sail Date: July 2019
- Destination: Baltic Sea
- Cabin Type: Mini-Suite with Balcony
Embarkation and disembarkation by Princess was easy & smooth. But the traffic from Copenhagen city to Ocean Terminal on embarkation day was terrible. It is one-lane each way road into the terminal area. We were waiting outside our hotel in city for taxi for almost one hour because most of taxi were stuck in the terminal area due to a car broken down on road. The Danish government should improve this as they earns so much money from cruises.
Food and drink are excellent. The only hiccup was the first night we couldn't find our table although we had time-fixed dinning with pre-assigned table. It was very confused.
On-board activities and fitness centre were average. We did not spend much time on board as the cruise had many ports to call and we spent most of time offshore.
Service and staff in Regal Princess are excellent. Room stewards Jefferson was very helpful and he cleaned our room twice per day, making us feeling extremely comfortable during the whole cruise. Dinning room waiters were friendly and helpful although they were just too busy. Also Princess was very caring on the day to Berlin. After a long day of train/bus trip to Berlin, exhausted passengers back to ship after 8:30pm could still enjoy plenty of hot food served in Horizon Court.
Cabin is clean. We had mini-suite on deck 11. It was clean, good size and comfortable to fit three persons. The odd thing is that the curtain between main bed and sofa bed does not block the sound at all. The sound from two TVs or people talking in the room would be heard. This makes the curtain not much useful.
Entertainment is overall OK, though not outstanding. The Russian Folk Dancing was great.

City TourA small city made us feel warm and friendly. We took Hop-on-Hop-off bus. It is complete contrary to St. Petersburg, and absolutely worth to visit. Its Old Town is the most beautiful place among all of the cities in the cruise.View All 123 City Tour Reviews
Castles of North ZealandVisit beautiful royal palaces and castle, but not enough time inside. It is absolutely worth to do such a one-day trip outside Copenhagen if you have enough time.View All 23 Castles of North Zealand Reviews
City TourGot ticket with 48 hours for 3 routes. The main RED route is for most of tourist sites, but the purple and green routes are not much interesting. Also there is another company's hop-on-hop-off bus with very similar decoration. You will be refused to board the wrong bus.View All 170 City Tour Reviews
City TourNot an exciting city. No grand palace. Not much to see, except the Senate Square. The Rock Church is unique. But with so many tourists jammed into the church at one time, photoing and talking, the sacredness is just not possible (although "Please Keep quiet" is kept broadcasting from a microphone).View All 171 City Tour Reviews
OsloWe like this city very much, a quiet and beautiful sea port. Princess only gave us a few of hours so we just walked in the city by ourselves. Did not have time to see Viking Museum, instead visiting Nobel Peace Centre.View All 369 Oslo Cruise Port Reviews

Private TourTwo days in St. Petersburg, the most grand city in Baltic Sea. This is the highlight of the cruise and the private tour TJ Travel we joined did not disappointed us at all. There are so many palaces and churches to visit, and the canal was very impressive. The Russian government makes this city the most worth to visit in the region.View All 186 Private Tour Reviews
StockholmAnother beautiful Baltic city. We joined private bus tour to sight see the points of interest. So many to see but not enough time. Vasa museum and Gamla Stan are must. Tour guide was average.View All 12,783 Stockholm Cruise Port Reviews
