Notes from First Time Cruisers
"Alaska is a beautiful place and getting there is more than half of the fun. The Royal Princess is a beautiful ship with many things to do, see or enjoy from early morning to late at night. Always book a balcony..."Read More

BREAKFAST Most of the food in the buffet was COLD. The toast, English muffins, and bagels were run through an automated toaster when the buffet was opened and were served for the next several hours. Fried eggs were also cooked earlier and the warming pans delivered either cold or luke warm eggs. The only made to order item were the omelets, and they were great! LUNCH & DINNER Again ...

After 20 plus cruises with various companies, Princess is still a favorite. First time on Royal Princess. Ship was beautiful and spacious, no lineups for any venue or dining. Sabatini's speciality restaurant was a romantic setting for two to enjoy an anniversary. The menu selection and food presentation was memorable. Alfredo's pizza was so great, we enjoyed several times. Make sure you ...

Crazy world out there but on our cruise we were treated like princesses! With the new medallions, all the crew knew our names and who we belonged with. And we could find each other, generally. Embarking and disembarking was so easy with doing all the paper work before getting to the ship and having the medallions on. They say there were over 3000 passengers but we didn't see them! Except for the ...

EXCELLENT IMPROVEMENT BY PRINCESS CRUISE LINES AS AN ELITE MEMBER We never thought princess would have outstanding service & abundance of variety & quality food. They had 4 or 5 different buffet line that never seems to be crowed we planned to do anytime dining but after tasting the quality food in the lido we had enjoyed our meals at the buffet. The royal princess decor was beautiful and ...

First Timer Princess Cruiser - Solid Traditional Cruise Ship & Experience

Overall score would be closer to 4 than 3 stars. Royal Princess was a solid traditional cruise ship and experience for their great service and good food. As a couple in their mid 30's, we felt we were the youngest on the ship and most of the activities/clientele weren't really catered to us(which is fine because we expected this) but I would not recommend this cruise line for anyone under 40 ...

This was our third cruise on the Royal since October 2019. I got an email from Princess about the Renew Your Vows and Breaking a Guinness World Record for this 5 day cruise to Cabo San Lucas. Jumped right on. So I won’t repeat comments from those previous reviews from our cruise on the Royal on October and December 2019. All was the same. Great food and service and no complaints. We didn’t ...

Disappointment for 50th Anniversary

I recently came back from the Royal Princess five day cruise to Cabo. I have to say I will never cruise with Princess again. The room NEVER stopped shaking - five days 24hours - because I beleive it was next to an engine room or something. My folks were one floor directly above me yet had very minor rocking. Everything was sub par and/or downright unacceptable for what we paid. My room was ...

I wanted to take my mom on her first cruise and picked this one because it was short and close to home. Newer ship with Medallion Class. Great app (when it works...it was a little spotty) but still useful. Your cabin door automatically open when you approach, you can order food/drinks anywhere, locate your friends on the ship, pay for purchases in the shops etc. Cabin was roomy and clean. Beds ...

We picked this short cruise largely because we hadn't been to the 2 ports on the cruise before. We coupled it with the 2 previous Royal Princess cruises before on a B2B2B basis. It stopped at Avalon, Catalina Island and Ensenada, Mexico. Catalina was very picturesque and a great stopover point. We rented a golf cart and drove around the island for a couple of hours, which was great fun. We rented ...
