Loved the itinerary and the ship - the food, not so much!

We chose this cruise primarily for the itinerary and timing as we like to escape our New England winters - we have cruised with Celebrity, Carnival, NCL, Oceania and Royal - this was our first Princess experience and we tried not to make comparisons, as each line has its strengths and weaknesses. Embarkation was quick and efficient and our deluxe balcony stateroom E126 was ready when we boarded ...

Overall this was a cruise on a par with most of my previous cruises, fifteen on Norwegian, one on Princess. The biggest surprise was the newly installed Medallion.net wi-fi service. It was priced reasonably, unlimited, and provided reliable service much faster than any I've previously experienced on a cruise. I am told it is being rolled out over time to other Princess ships. If your ship has it, ...

Embarkation went very smoothly. For the first time, we were assigned a time to come by floor. Our time was 2:30 pm. Rather late, but it worked for us and made embarkation very quick. Princess provides a nice experience with a few exceptions. This was our first time on the class of ship that includes the Royal. Larger and newer than the Crown or Emerald. We expected more from entertainment ...

We chose this particular cruise because of the certain ports of call. We had not been to any and were delightfully surprised. A great learning experience at each port. Beautiful locations. All-in-all a great experience. There were many different types of shore excursions to chose from. Something for all people. The food was great, even in the food court. Our cabin was very nice. First ...

Just off the Coral in December, we cruised the Caribbean on the Royal in January. Overall it was another nice cruise. As always the staff is very friendly and pleasant. We’ve never had a problem with staff in the six cruises we’ve done. We’ve been on the Royal previously as well as the Regal. The Royal is starting to show some wear now. The hull areas are showing rust and can tell the ...

Excellent service, huge buffet that didn't seem crowded despite almost 4,000 people on board. The cruise director, Matt O, was the best I've ever had on a cruise. He was funny, energetic, friendly and just overall awesome! He made the cruise. Makes me want to do some research when we're ready for another cruise, to see what ship he'll be on....he was that good. The band, Static, was great. ...

This was our 8th cruise on Princess (Platinum) and 2nd time on The Royal Princess. This was our 37th cruise. We have also sailed on Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Costa, Holland America and MSC. Our itinerary was Princess Cays, St. Thomas and St. Maarten. We had rented a car from Budget which was convenient and was only a 2 minute shuttle ride to the cruise port. We arrived at the cruise port ...

We love princess, and the fact that they give $100 credit to Veterans. Food is great, itinerary was what I wanted. Royal Carib. is our second choice but they are becoming the modern "Pirates of the Caribbean" in that they "Nickle and Dime you" for everything. Our room steward and the one in the adjoining area were very friendly and helpful. I have a small mobility scooter, that fits in the room ...

A nice ship but a few drawbacks

We choose this cruise because it fit our timing with trying to get several family members together. We have previously cruised with Royal Caribbean. Embarkation at Port Everglades was fast and smooth. Disembarkation was not. Lines were long. The Royal Princess is a smaller ship that the RCL Navigator of Seas so it did feel like we could get around the ship easily. It seemed to us that the cruisers ...

The Royal Princess disappointment

We wanted to give Princess another try since we use to sail with them many times. this was our 14th cruise with Princess. We have been on most of them. Theater seats and deck chairs were never available. There were no accommodations for disabled in the theater, or pool side. Passengers would put stuff on chairs no matter how many times they were told no reservation of theater or deck chairs, ...
