Regal Princess Cruise Review by CMorin
- Sail Date: August 2019
- Destination: Baltic Sea
- Cabin Type: Balcony (obstructed view)
Roomy cabins with balconies for almost everyone.
Very usefull medaillon (RF ID). The cabin door unlocks automatically as you approach it. You can buy anything on board and even on shore (to access hop-on hop-off bus tours starting at the dock), without further identification. The boat personnel equipment allows them to confirm your ID with a picture on their tablet.
Exceptionnal food variety and quality at the buffet (Bistro Horizon).
Conversely, dissapointing food preparation, cooking skills, and wine serving service at standard (Symphony, Harmony, Concerto) and specialty (Crown Grill, Sabatini's) restaurants.
The best bet, after the buffet is to eat at small bistros (Crab Schack, Alfredo's, International Café and the like), which are all very good with food quality and service.
Efficient room service, albeit very present in the corridors.
High quality shows production with a good spectrum of styles to please everyone. But humour is difficult with such varied cultural background in the audience, especially when guests ar asked to participate on stage. Both the comedian and the ventriloquist generated some uncomfortable moments.

HelsinkiCharming with architecture and food market. You have to visit Ericksson's at the covered food market. They serve the best fish (salmon) soup we had in a very long time.View All 839 Helsinki Cruise Port Reviews

Least interesting and most expensive port of this cruise. Cold and rainy wheather did not help either.

St. PetersburgIt is sad to see that the Ermitage is so popular with crowds competing for access. Since the groups needs to keep together, we cannot choose where to go and how long we stay at any specific location.View All 606 St. Petersburg Cruise Port Reviews
On the other hand, time on our own in the city was very satisfying. The Russian Tappas restaurant we had lunch in was quite an experience. The Beef Stroganoff was absolutely superb.
