Regal Princess

November 2014 - Regal Princess to Caribbean - Eastern

Beautiful ship but she can't handle her own capacity

This big new ship is very nice but has some serious design flaws. The dining rooms do not handle all the diners so "anytime" seating is really "no time" seating. We had to wait an hour or more or eat elsewhere several nights. The reservations were all gone within 10 minutes of the reservation desk opening. The theater also has capacity problems and will "sell out" well prior to show time. The tendering experience is also a mess as the crew clearly has no experience with a ship this large and tendering.

But I think the greater disappointment is poor entertainment and not much fun to do, very boring activities coupled with a "customers always wrong" attitude from the staff. I get that the customer may not always be right but this is the other extreme. I was reprimanded for bringing towels from one pool deck to another, really?

Freedom of the Seas

April 2014 - Freedom of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

If you want to stick to your diet, not be hurried and stay humble this is your cruise

You will stick to your diet as the food is terrible, you won't be hurried as you will be standing in line and you will stay humble because the crew is so very rude. The bloom is off the rose on this ship, we lost one engine on this cruise, the linens are frayed and it is badly in need of attention. The cruise director sets the tone for an arrogent and odd staff.

There is a problem on any cruise ship when 3,000 guests want 500 pool chairs, it is worse here when they sell 50 or so of them so now it is only 450 chairs. The windjammer restaurant, (main buffet) is simply terrible when compared to other ships, crowded, poor variety and low quality. There are very few entertainment choices and only one poolside band who plays the same songs every day.

It seems that years of cost cutting are catching up with this ship to provide a low quality experience, a crew who hate their job and the guests and few options for entertainment. Again and again we heard people say "I can't wait to get off this ship".

Ruby Princess

January 2014 - Ruby Princess to Caribbean - Eastern

Enjoyable cruise, average food

The ship is wonderful, very clean and very well maintained. The staff is friendly and the service is tremendous. The entertainment is a bit lacking, short shows that are less than exciting. The food is the big disappointment, the buffet food is plentiful and well prepared but just not a very good quality. We ate on night in the Crown Grill which costs extra and were very disappointed, the Tiger Prawn Cocktail was two small shrimp, my NY Strip was tuff and hard to chew.
