WORST CRUISE EVER! WIFE CONTRACTED VIRAL DISEASE ON BOARD DAY 9

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

WE VIRTUALLY NEVER LEFT RM# M602 AFTER PONTE DELGATO. MY WIFE CONTRACTED "VIRAL INTESTINAL INFECTION" THAT SHIP DOCTORS SAID WAS" LIKELY OBTAINED ON BOARD". WE WERE FORCED TO CANCEL ALL EXCURSIONS, USE A WHEEL CHAIR AND PORTABLE OXYGEN FOR THE REMAINDER OF OUR  TRIP. SINCE VIRAL WAS CONTAGIOUS, WE DID NOT SOCIALIZE AND REMAINED MOSTLY IN OUR CABIN FOR CONCERN OF OTHER PASSANGERS. WE RECEIVED CONTINUOUS MEDICAL ATTENTION COSTING ME OVER $1,800 .WHILE ON BOARD. THIS WAS NOT AN EXPERIENCE ANYONE WOULD APPRECIATE!

WE PURCHASED TRANSFERS ON 4/17/2017. YOUR TRANSFER OPERATOR LEFT US IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET AT HOMBURG AIRPORT.AT THE WRONG TERMINAL. WE HAD NO ACCESS TO  LUGGAGE PORTERS, NO WHEEL CHAIR OR LUGGAGE CARTS . WHAT A TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE!. JOYCE IS 72, I AM 74 AND WE BOTH HAD WHEELCHAIR ASSISTANCE ON OUR RECORDS. OUR CRUISE TURNED INTO A COSTLY, MISERABLE BOATRIDE. CONTRACTING A VIRAL DISEASE ON BOARD YOUR SHIP WAS OUR WORST  EXPERIENCE OF THE DOZEN PLUS TIMES WE CRUISED BEFORE.

 I OBSERVED GOOD HYGEINE PRACTICE ELSEWHERE  NOT EVIDENT ON REGAL PRINCESS( E.G). LACK OF HAND SANTIZERS , TOWELS OR TRASH DISPOSAL ON ENTRANCE AND EXIT OF PUBLIC TOILETS, LIMTED USE OF GLOVES BY FOOD HANDLERS.

AS A FIRST TIME PRINCESS TRAVELER, I AM VERY UPSET AT THE EXPOSURE THAT CAUSED MY WIFE TO CONTRACT A VERY BAD VIRAL INFECTION; THE LOST OF OUR   ABILITY TO VISIT OUR DESTINATION PORTS AND THE $1,800 MEDICAL EXPENSE ALONG WITH THE CONSIDERABLE MEDICAL DISTRESS THAT MY WIFE EXPERIENCED ON THE REGAL PRINCESS. MY WIFE HAS END STAGE RENAL DISEASE . WE ARE NOT SURE HOW THE INFECTION HAS COMPROMISED HER HEALTH.

YOUR MEDICAL STAFF WAS ATTENTIVE  AND TRIED  TO RESOVLE THE CONGESTION BUT WERE NOT ENTIRELY SUCCESSFUL . AS OF TODAY,4/23,2017, REMNANTS OF THE COGESTION REMAINWITH HER.

I HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON!. GIVEN OUR EXPERIENCE, WHY SHOULD WE EVER USE THE PRINCESS CRUISE LINE AGAIN?

CHARLES AND JOYCE DIANA.

Which of one's children is loved the most?  The food was decidedly superior to RCL and NCL  I still enjoy the memory of the baked Alaska, the tenderness of the steaks, the flavor of shrimp, mushroom soup, gravies and sauces, and creme brouillet.  Then there was an outstanding selection of recent movies that I did not get around to the last year at home (again the best selection of movies of all competitors).  Do not forget the ports--four ports, all or which were new to me and quite interesting.  Great crew staff, excellent embarkation and debarkation (although I would wisecrack that I did not see anything "preferred" about preferred boarding).

Regal Princess Northern Europe Passage review

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

My favorite part of our cruise were the ports. Excellent choices! Seeing the beautiful Azores with the lush greenery and hot springs, fumaroles, mud pots, etc. was an excellent experience . Going to La Havre and touring quaint Honfleur was very special. Knowing it had been spared from the bombings made it even more special. Seeing areas like La Havre that are totally different after many WW2  bombings  that destroyed 80 % of the city was definitely an eye opening experience.  

Brugge had been on my bucket list for many years and it didn't disappoint!  It was like putting Venice, Amsterdam and other old European cities all in one. We had seen Amsterdam on a previous cruise and so it was fun going to Rotterdam this time. We had picked the Delft factory tour and we got to paint our own plate.  We really enjoyed that!!

The ship was quite beautiful and yet I felt that the Princesss Patter activities were pretty much same old, same old.  I enjoyed going to the Spanish classes with Veronica.  I was disappointed that the Bridge group started at 9 a.m because with all the time changes making me feel very tired all the time I did not want to go as I could hardly ever even be up by then on this cruise.  That hadn't happened to me on previous cruises.  I missed having the Bridge teacher on board from some previous cruises as well. A pleasant surprise was finding that even though there were a lot more people on this ship that we still didn't have to wait to be served anywhere. The shows did fill up quickly but that always happens.

The dinners were always good, though I don't always appreciate some flavorings in the food that I didn't expect.

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

An excellent, cruise.  We departed Fort Lauderdale on April 2, landed in Hamburg, Germany, on April 17.  Weather during the second week was a disappointment: at our first port (Ponta Delgada), our guide said we were there on the coldest day of the year and it had been 20 degrees warmer a week earlier; in Germany, our guide told us "worst weather in 20 years"!  So we didn't use the pools or hot tubs the second week of the cruise, but it didn't dampen our spirits.  Note: the same cruise in 2018 is scheduled two weeks later than this one.  As expected, excellent entertainment and excellent food.  We met some people we enjoyed visiting with so much, that we closed the dining room every night the second week.  Regal Princess was in good condition, no major breakdowns.  I chose this cruise because of the sea days, port of Normandy (for D Day excursion), and ending in Germany.  May take this cruise again next year.

Overall the time spent on Regal Princess was very delightful.  One place which I thought they fell short on was the Galley tour, it was not very informative at all.  The stations were all shut and you had no idea what was suppose to be going on at each section, the tour on Island Princess was very informative as they had people working and explained what each section was doing.

Disappointing Princess

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The weather on the Atlantic was very pleasant.  The Polonia String Quartet provided excellent entertainment.Princess Theater shows were old, overdone, tired, over-used themes the last few years.  Could use some fresh ideas.  The ship was generally dirty everywhere from cabins, hallways, elevators, dining rooms.  Staff seemed tired, ready to take a vacation.  Best service was probably in the Horizon Court.  Captains Circle events need some innovative ideas, not just come, sit, drink.

Great Boat, Great staff, so much to do but if you want the young adult life, go somewhere else.  Entertainment is great and such a big boat.  Great food choices you receive.  Pizza is the best outside of New York City.  Overall, will take this boat again with a different intinerary.

Haven't cruised for years. Got tired of the out of control children and adults.  First time I cruised on Princess Cruise Lines.  The staff was incredible!  Food was delicious throughout the ship.  Cleanliness exceptional!! Behavior of children and adults, exceptional.

Ready to go again, only on Princess!

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.
