What sort of info are you asking for? Have you looked at the deck plans and read reviews?

If you could be a bit more specific it will be easier to give you information about the ship and deck.

It' a Ship not a boat and Riviera deck is pretty good. You don't get much movement on a ship that big and take some earplugs then you can always put them in. It's easy to get to the Restaurants. It is clean, service is good.

It wasn't me askin. I am already planning Nov Trans Atlantic. Been doing it since last Nov.

Thanks for pointing out my mistake of not calling it a " Ship ".

I'm just looking for anyones honest impressions or tips .

Can't comment on the deck, but the ship is wonderful.

Very relaxing atmosphere throughout, dining was excellent (both in food and service), buffet was large and plentiful and never seemed to fully close (always something open).

Food at the Alfredo's restaurant was outstanding, never a wait for a table and excellent service - rivaling many extra-fee restaurants on board other ships with one exception - it was free (or included with the fare for you purists).

Entertainment was typical Princess fare - classical quartets and small musical groups throughout the day and evening, and good shows in the theater at night. On the ten-night cruise I was on, I never felt bored or wished I was somewhere else.

I have heard that the balconies on the Royal are normally smaller than other ships, however I cannot say for sure (I had booked L-101 with a balcony larger than the cabin itself).

I enjoyed it enough to book a 15-night trip on her sister, the Regal.

Hope this info is what you were looking for, and that you have a great trip.

My apology to referring the ship as a boat.

Aaaaaaand another post disappears.

some people don’t like snarky

It is not snarky. It was incorrect usage. Ask me , I am a Boat Captain. The dictionary says, With regard to motorized craft, a ship is a large vessel intended for oceangoing or at least deep-water transport, and a boat is anything else. I do not like being accused of snarky, someone just didn't know proper terminology. Don't take it personal. Computers make it hard to actually transmit emotion.
