Worst cruise ever

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The food reminded me of the "Mess Hall" in the military. The ship has been designed as well as their programs to generate revenue for the company with little attention to customer convenience. This was our 12th cruise but only the second on Princess which will be our last. The only and I mean only positive was the Princess theater entertainment which was truly outstanding. Unfortunately that only took up one hour per day.

I would not recommend this cruise the 2nd week of January if you have young adults or have children. The average age was well over 60.  Our cabin was not as clean as in years past and our cabin steward put sheets on our bed with dried blood - found it the last night.  The food was just okay.  There were not a lot of choices for entertainment either.

Excellent Holiday Cruise

All phases of the cruise were perfect.  From Embarkation to disembarkation every event went smoothly.  Enjoyed shopping at the Effy store and the Park West display.  The sale in the Piazza was great for buying T-Shirts, souvenirs, and liquor.  The absolutely top notch staff on the ship are in the Dining rooms.  The bar service in the lounges meet all expectations.  Ports were fabulous especially for shoppers looking for bargains.  Happy Hour every day in the Crooners lounge was a great way to cruise away the day.  The International Cafe always had fresh food available all hours of the day.  The staff interacts with the customers which makes everyone feel at home.

The ship is beautiful! So many wonderful things to enjoy, see and do. The staterooms are comfortable, the stateroom stewards and dining staff are amazingly kind, and the amenities are special. The major problem we encountered was our particular stateroom. Through the bulkhead of the room came loud music, vibrations and noise from four decks below in the Princess Theater beginning EVERY day from 3pm to 11pm. Apparently stateroom C -204 (Caribe-204, alos known as 10204) is the only room onboard that has this noise issue. It ruined our trip. We could not even drowned out the noise with the highest volume on the TV. And the painful part was that there were rooms the senior management of customer service could've moved us to, but didn't until the 7th day of our 10-day cruise. This was confirmed to us by our new stateroom steward who offered to fill our ice bucket because the room had not been used since before the cruise began. Whaaaat?!! We repeatedly asked, requested, inquired about, appealed, petitioned, begged,pleaded, and cried for a room change. Over and over we were told that there was absolutely no stateroom available for us to be moved to. This is a shameful and inexcusable way to treat a customer. On day 8, we were offered an onboard credit of $300. With only 2 full days remaining, we politely declined. On day 9, we were offered a $450.00 onboard credit. Again, we declined. Insult on injury. No, thanks.

     This was our first Princess Cruise, we have cruised on several other cruise lines over the past several years, and we were not disappointed. This ship is huge, almost too big for our liking. We had over 3000 passengers plus crew. That being said, service was excellent, amenities were numerous, and we never waited more than 15 minutes in any restaurant before being seated, even on "anytime" dining. 

     Our mini-suite (small upgrade from balcony stateroom) was larger than most cabins we have been in and was very comfortable and felt new. Technology throughout the ship was amazing. Wi-Fi everywhere and the broadcasting of Live NFL games on the giant on deck television was a big plus. The spa facilities were wonderful (we recommend the "Enclave") and several swimming pools provided kid and adult spaces without paying for the optional adult only retreat area.

      Food was as good or better than we have experienced on most major cruise lines and shore excursions were numerous but short considering we only had 10 hours in most ports on this itinerary. 

     I will note that the Commodore (a rank above Caption) in charge of this vessel was unusually accessible and very friendly. We saw him several times on the ship and he always took a moment to chat with us. That personal touch made this cruise special and our fond memories will last for many years to come.

Wonderful service, excellent pricing, food is out of this world, very good itenerary, very nice clean ship.  Many people were coming back to this ship and many were staying for back-to-back cruise.  It doesn't get any better than this!

Was expecting more

Knowing that the Regal was one of the newest ships, I was expecting something more grand based on the descriptions and pictures. It actually seemed to be more on the scaled back side. The casino was small and filled with smoke from the couple of smokers very quickly. The dealers seemed to be all sick with no hand sanitizer available, so one had to blow their nose then continued dealing. When those of us playing said something to the pit boss, he looked around for about 30 seconds, shrugged his shoulders and went on with his business. No wonder that by the end of the cruise so many people leaving were coughing and sneezing.

Great, Relaxing Holiday Cruise

Beware of the balcony rooms with obstructed views. 

 

The dinners and breakfasts were great but the lunches were mediocre. I like to keep it simple when it comes to lunch but the options were too heavy. I also did not like how all drinks were served to you by waiters on Lido.  Carnival has several stations strategically placed around the Lido deck but there were only two that I knew of on this cruise.  Getting something to drink with your meal took too long.  I sat down with my buffet meal and had to wait for coffee, tea, water, and or juice.  Then the food got cold. 

 

The crew was very friendly.  We had excellent waiters in the any time dining room.  Our waiter Luis was a riot and a joy to be around.  We also had the liberty of making friends with the Head Waiter (Luis) and F&B Manager (Alberto).  We traveled with small children and they made us feel welcome even though the kids were sometimes "difficult" during the meals.  The bartenders in the Club 6 cocktail hour for platinum members were great. Valeriya and Marco were knowledgeable and a fun duo! Our room steward must have had a bad week.  She was somewhat unfriendly and always made us feel like waiting on us was an inconvenience. 

 

There are no stairs midship and this made it difficult to navigate from deck to deck.  The stairs stopped at floor 7 and conveniently, we were on deck 8.  We had to take the elevator everywhere and it often took a while to get there. 

 

The balcony was really small and looked bigger in the picture.  Also, we had an obstructed view of the lifeboats, something we did not think would be a big deal but it was.  There were no pictures of these rooms, only pics of rooms above the lifeboats.  They blocked almost all of the sun from peering onto the balcony and we could not see into the sea below us.  It was disappointing.  The room was also really small.  We had two twin beds (which are smaller than twin beds) and a pull-out sofa to fit three people.  When the sofa was pulled out, you could not access the balcony or the fridge.  The toilet paper was placed in the worst spot possible, under the sink right above the garbage can.  It was very difficult to reach and I have no special handicaps. If the roll overran, it ended up in the trash.  Terrible room design. Had we known the rooms were going to be like this, we would have opted for a rooms above the lifeboats. 

 

Sabatini's was good, but overrated. We only went because we had a voucher from our travel agent.  I would not go back without a voucher. The pizza and grill are nothing to write home about. Alfredo's pizza is great, and should replace the pizza in the pizza bar.

Outstanding cruise: food-very good; entertainment-outstanding.  Only criticism was disembarkation; not enough customs people, so it took considerably longer than in the past (which was really not Princess' fault)

If you want to eat in the "specialty" dining rooms make sure to make your arrangements when you board for the week as their availability for same day or day before dining is non existent

There are only two stair wells that go above the 7th floor. If you like to walk the steps and avoid the elevator lines, be aware they are only located at the far front and aft of the ship.

Allow extra time to get back to the ship due to tendering in lifeboats at Princess Cay.
