Royal Princess

November 2013 - Royal Princess to Caribbean

The New Royal Princess needs some revisions

Princess is our preferred cruise line.  We enjoyed the Crown Princess, the Emerald Princess, and the Sapphire Princess.  We were so excited to be traveling on the new Royal Princess, but our expectations were not met for the following reasons:

1. The embarkment was a mess, unorganized and took way too long.  Usually it runs very smoothly on Princess

2. The toilets in the public areas had difficulty in flushing

3. Poor dining room service the first two days in the "anytime dining"  The waiters did not introduce themselves and did not  refill beverages, bread, etc.My prime rib came medium rare and I requested medium well.  Was sent back two times.  I finally gave up.On the third day, we found a sweet and efficient server who gave us a great eperience, so we called and requested her section for the remaining of the cruise.

4. Usually, Princess shows movies and concerts daily by the pool.  This is one of the reasons we choose to go Princess.  On this ship, so much of the time, the movie screen just shoed landscapes which was boring.

5. Whave cruised over 20 times and this is the first ship where the room stewart did not have cute folded toels in the cabin, WHY??? This is one of the fun things we look forward to on a cruise.

6.  The buffet service on the Lido deck offers many selections, but it is so spread out.  Be ready to walk, not easy for people who have difficulty.

7.  We usually enjoy going to see the Kareoke, but the seating in the "Princess Live"  is very tight and not comfortable, miss the comfy seats in the lounge areas of the other ships.

8.  Loss valuable time (4 hours) trying tomuse the ship's internet system, it was not reliable

9.  We did love the new design of the Princess theater.  Loved the center aisle and the comfy seating, easy to see. Sad they did not offer even one inside movie in this beautiful theater.

10. The disembarkment was much smoother than the embarkment.  Hopefully Princess will correct the problems relayed by us cruisers.We will probably use the older ships until we see more progress.

Emerald Princess

April 2012 - Emerald Princess to Caribbean - Southern

A Great way to spend ten days relaxing

We have been on many different cruise lines and ships. The Emerald Princess was a very easy ship to get around on. It has a great Lido deck with three pools at that level plus a nice food selection. Overall, the ship is decorated in good taste. The staff was friendly and the stateroom was clean. The embarkment and disembarkment went very smoothly. The only negatives for us were the very tiny shower and the Princess Theater seats were tight and too close together. Other wise we would recommentd this ship.

Carnival Valor

November 2011 - Carnival Valor to Caribbean - Western

Nice Holiday

The Carnival Valor is definitely decorated in a patrioitic theme. The ship was very clean both in the public and private areas. The food selection was varied and reasonably good. I have been on many crusies. I wish there was an adult pool area. This ship just had hot tubs in the adult area. I really enjoyed the decor and layout of the Carnival Pride slightly better. The chairs in the casual Lido eating area, Rosey's were very heavy and difficult to move. The entertainment was ok.
