This was my surprise gift for my husbands 50th birthday so I wanted to do something extra special for him. I even went as far as getting his vacation approved with his boss without my husband knowing. I wanted this to be a birthday he ... Read more

If you are looking for a boring cruise this is the one! They have replaced the poolside entertainment with a TV, then they played the same animal clips over and over EVERYDAY. Ship was pretty, but the bigger ship just had more cabins, ... Read more

Picked this cruise because it was a 10 cruise to the deep Caribbean. The Royal is a very nice ship. Lots to do and well laid out. I love the central court and all that goes on around it. Dining was very good in the Horizon Cafe and I ... Read more

This was our 24th cruise and having sailed on the Regal cruise in November we were hoping the Royal would live up to the high standards that the Regal set for us. The Royal did not disappoint. So on to the review and then plenty of ... Read more

We had done this same itinerary on the Emerald in 2012 and thought it worth a second look. Plus we wanted to see the new Royal Princess. As we do more cruises,(this is our 7th), the Wow factor is less, but other than a few glitches this ... Read more

This was our second time on the Royal Princess. We found the food not up to the last time we travelled. We had notes the last few days saying that they where working on the balconies and may have to enter our room to get out to do ... Read more

This was our first time on Princess and were looking forward to having a mini suite. However, while the cabin was nice, it's location in the ship, two decks below the skywalk, and the constant vibration in our cabin, made it less than ... Read more

Amazing 10 days onboard the Royal Princess. We arrived at the port around 11am and was walking on 20 min later. This is my 16th cruise with Princess so no long lines to wait in. First impressions of the interior was wonderful. ... Read more

We've done this cruise before. We like 10 days vs the more common 7 day cruise. We also really enjoy the islands that the cruise goes to. Embarkation went very fast and smooth. After dropping off our carry on bags in our cabin we went ... Read more

Loved the ship, food and service were very good. Embarkation went smoothly considering we arrived at the peak time. Our room was ready and our room stewart was great. We asked for a top sheet on the bed and had one that evening. He was ... Read more

We chose The Royal Princess because of our previous cruises on this ship. The addition of the stairs in the forward area was a big improvement. It is still a difficult ship to navigate because of the size. Getting to the Allegro dinning ... Read more

If you've never cruised before, don't book the Regal Princess! You'll be too spoiled to sail with anyone else. She's elegant with a modern twist. Rich faux cherry, shiny brass and sumptuous rugs. Modern chandeliers with dripping baubles ... Read more

We chose this cruise because everyone said it was supposed to be classier, better entertainment, and better food than other lines. We didn't find any of these to be true. We did not find that the food was better than Royal Caribbean and ... Read more

This was our 5th cruise with Princess and it was everything I expected it to be. The ship itself was beautiful and there was never a dull moment unless of course you wanted it to be. Although embarkation was a little slow (keeping in ... Read more

After three Royal Caribbean cruises, we chose Princess for comparison. Embarkation was more of a hassle, with a long outside line for 45 minutes (@11am). Once we got inside it was a reasonable 30 minutes to boarding. Regal is a very ... Read more

An excellent cruise both for the ship design changes they have made and for the entertainment which was by far the best every experienced, The only critique is that the Princess Theatre is too small for the size of the ship and to get 3 ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise on Princess, on their newest ship, yet when I compare it to the first one I took 11 years ago, they have really cut back on the quality of their food, staff is grumpy and definitely have an attitude. I was openly ... Read more

We chose this cruise to take a break from winter. Boarding went smoothly and efficiently. Once in our cabin we met our steward. Muster was done well and we enjoyed sail away. The cruise was rather low key and the food was a ... Read more
