I was on this same cruise. If one is interested in excursions rather than staying on the ship, one should note that the cpatain skipped the port of St John's Bay of Fundy and left 2 hours early at port of Bar Harbor Maine. I'd happily wait an hour at a restaurant without reservations than missing a port that I have my heart set on. There was no waiting time for those who had reserved seating at the Allegro Restaurant.

Yes, we did have to skip St. John's at the discretion of our Cap't. due to high winds, and with safety of all passengers in mind. While it was a place we were looking forward to, I personally commend our Cap't. for using safety as the higher priority. This lovely ship has many options for dining. I've posted what one of those choices were. The Allegro is not one of the choices for anytime dining. Had we had a set seating time, we probably would not have had to wait to be seated. Just sharing some information.
Thanks for the review. Very informative. I look forward to sailing on the Regal.
Sister and BiL just got of the same cruise. They are all raves we well. So glad you enjoyed Boston (our hometown).
Anytime dining does seem to be a challenge for Princess. Especially when you wait for awhile and then see empty tables when you are seated. Anytime dining is useful when you can schedule around shows and activities to suit you daily plans. If you see a long line you are best to either be prepared for a long wait or do some other activity until the line goes down.
Thanks for the review Joann, so glad you had a wonderful cruise!
It is always disappointing to have to miss a port. It happened to us on our last cruise but the captain substituted another port instead so all was good.
Hi, what is pickle ball & how & where is it played please as I've never heard of this game before & it sounds interesting. Thank you. X
Pickle ball is kind of like tennis, but played on a smaller court, with paddles instead of racquets. The ball is different too. More like a whiffle ball
to see it played
