We were on this cruise for the first week and enjoyed it very much. At first we were disappointed that Tunis & Sicily were changed to Cartegena & Gibraltar but were very impressed with Gibraltar.
Loved all the Ports of Call and enjoyed the Royal Princess, I don't believe it was full because it never seemed to be line ups which was great. Disappointed that our table for 8 only had 4 at it as were most of the tables. Too bad they couldn't put some of them together so we could have got to know others like we wanted.
We were a little disappointed in the menu in the dining room as some nights there was not much "normal" choices. Other ships we have been on, if you didn't care for menu items you could always order a steak but this wasn't the case on this ship. There was better selection on the buffet some nightsl
We had a wonderful time on this cruise. We had never been to any of these ports which we enjoyed all of them!
We chose an aft balcony cabin (8461) because it was the middle of the back. We were a little disappointed with the set up of the room. The closet jutted out which made no space to hardly open the bathroom door. We saw the room two doors down and it was larger than ours, had a larger balcony and way more space. We also found it noisy with having seating one floor above as there always seemed to be chairs scraping!
The food was good except we found some of the times inconvenient. We came back on to the ship in the early afternoon and wanted a light lunch (Fruit/salad) but there was no place open to get this. We felt that one of the buffets should have been open. Also there was nothing other than pizza and ice cream available after 9:30. It would have been nice to have something other than that available.
We did not use the Casino (which we would have liked to) but smoking was allowed in it and to even walk through was disgusting. They had photos and entertainment but even walking through was gross for non smokers.
We had no issues with embarkation and we did the walk off debarkation which we were glad because others waited for hours to get off.
