You'd think it would be difficult to be pissed off after spending a week somewhere as gorgeous as the Caribbean. But congratulations, Regal Princess - you've succeeded.

I'll start with a little background: This was the FOURTH cruise I've taken with Princess just this year alone - and my second on the Regal. I'm not the type to complain about every little issue on a cruise - I'm generally pretty easy to please. I did Panama Canal last month on the Island Princess and it was amazing. Zero complaints. I wrote a great review after that cruise because they deserved it.

I just got home from a seven day Western Caribbean cruise on the Regal Princess. The ports of call and shore excursions were excellent, as always, but many things about the ship itself were pretty terrible. I don't even know where to begin, so I'll take it from the top...

Cabin Review

Balcony

Bathroom smelled like urine. Smell came back even after being repeatedly bleached and scrubbed by the steward. This ship obviously has plumbing issues of some sort. Notice the brand new carpeting? Yeah - that's because the entire wing of the ship flooded.

Princess Cays

Some nice secluded stretches of beach if you venture off the beaten path a little bit.

Grand Cayman (Georgetown)

Grand Cayman is always spectacular
