Who Designed This Ship?

First: The staff, food and service aboard the Royal could not be better. EXTREMELY satisfied in those regards. Our issues deal with the overall ship design. They eliminated some of the most popular venues, (e.g., Explorer's) and the dance floor in the Wheelhouse. The Wheelhouse lounge is now merged with the Crown Grill: it's hard to tell where one starts and the other stops. The only ...

Beautiful new ship... Piazza grand, spacious and always something going on! With the international cafe and wine bar a great place to have tea, a snack or light lunch and enjoy the entertainment. Horizon court larger than on other ships, not crowded, plenty of seating and plenty of choices on the food. The pasty section is fantastic, and you can watch the pastry chefs at work. The pool area ...

The maiden voyage of the Royal Princess was truly a great vacation experience. My wife and I celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary on board and we had a blast. The Atrium is truly magnificent as shown in the Royal Princess You Tube videos. I will definitely cruise with Princess again! PROS: Our Stateroom Stewart at E402 was Naisy and she was truly a delightful and hard working young lady. In ...

This was our 12th Princess Cruise and had a wonderful time. The ship was everything and more than we expected. The new piazza design was a great place to gather, enjoy a coffee, gelato, pizza or just sit and listen to the music and watch others dance. I love that the coffee card from the international café allows you a 3 scoop gelato sundae for one punch and as always your coffee card is good from ...

We were on the Royal Princess for the maiden transatlantic voyage, from Venice. The ship looks nice from the outside, but when you come in, you see there a lot of bling-bling to show off. The bigger atrium is nice, more space for the senoir to play card or sleep, during the day and during the performance from the entertainers....... That right, the stateroom are smaller, balcony are tiny. The ...

Royal Princess somewhat disappointing!

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

The Royal Princess received some much press prior to its sailing, that we were expecting great tings from her...however, we were somewhat disappointed. The design of the ship needs to be changed before the Regal is launched. The center staircase only goes from 4-7 with no access to the upper floors making the use of the elevators a necessity. The Princess theatre has no aisles on the orchestra ...

Very Disappointed in New Ship

This new ship simply did not cut it with us. The disappointments included: - A "Promenade Deck" that wasn't. Most of the promenade deck was closed to passengers, although it doesn't show that on the deck plan on the Princess website. The deck is mostly taken up by the life boats, which block the windows entirely on Deck 7 (which are Public Spaces). Facets jewelry sales has great views while the ...

Our Royal Adventure – 9 – 27 October 2013 Executive Summary My wife Louise and I booked this trip within an hour of the voyage being published. Although we have sailed 18 times with Princess we have never done a TA and we thought that the opportunity to do it on a new ship could not be missed. Since there were many stops in the Med and we thought the Atlantic crossing could be cool we opted to ...

The Royal Princess is an excellent ship and worth seeing. My wife & I are both 62 and sailed on the Royal and found her to be different from the other ships yes but.. beautiful, expansive and pure joy to be on. If you are concerned, don't be. Our biggest complaint is: All these old, Elite (read arrogant) and overweight cruisers complaining all day and night. Average age on board had to be above ...

We sailed on the Royal Princess in October on its first transatlantic cruise from Venice to Ft. Lauderdale. We are experienced cruisers and our 30th cruise on Princess and probably the worst. First of all, when we walked into our balcony cabin (deluxe) off the back of the ship the carpet was filthy, and the drapes torn and dirty.. Mind you the ship was only not even 6 months old! We asked our ...
