  3. Royal Princess
This is a wonderful ship, large but I never felt crowded. The staff is exemplary, Princess should be proud of the staff on this ship. The entertainment, in particular the musicial groups were superb. The level of talent, far exceeded my expectations (you must listen to the Extravaganza Duo, to violinists that play amazing harmonies).The food, for the most part was very good. Their pizza restaurant was unexpectedly great (pizza oven cooked on stone the Italian way). The common areas of the ship are all very nice, in particular the piazza at the center of the ship. This ship does not have a promenade deck that completely encircles the ship, you need to go to the top deck to a walk/run track to do that, but it does have a partial outdoor space off deck 7 midship and near the back of the ship that are hardly ever used, and is a excellent area to use if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the swimming areas on the sun deck. Lounges ar provided. Beware the weather in November can be difficult (Puerto V. 92 F with 88 percent humidity made it feel like 100+, Cabo was fine) On this ship you waited for tenders in the public areas as groups were called, much better than everyone stuffed into one of the restaurants.

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BD
Typical small ship cabin with balcony. The balconies on this ship seemed smaller than on some other Princess ships.
