Royal Princess

November 2015 - Royal Princess to Caribbean - Southern

Dining Room Poor

Our cruise started with excellent service from Robin Henry Harper of Cruises Only and for the most part was a very good experience.  The location of our state room was excellent as was the entertainment and food in all the self service areas of the ship (especially the lido).  Our experience in the main dining room was poor with few choices on the evening menu and very slow service. (1 1/2 to 2 hrs ) Our room steward was outstanding and there always was plenty of room for us to do anything we would like at any time.  The weather was outstanding and we enjoyed all of the ports we visited and felt safe in them all as well.

Vision of the Seas

November 2014 - Vision of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

Disembarkation

Getting off the ship was a disaster.  Early checkoiut didn't happen due to some foreign passengers not showing up for immigration.  The process of lining up create line cutting, aggravation, and even anger on the part of some.  It left a very bad taste in the mouths of many after what was a very good and well run cruise.  All other aspects of the cruise were good to excellent and we liked the atmosphere of the "smaller" ship.  It was one of our most enjoyed cruises and our accommodations were excellent.

Dominica - Had a nice tour of the island and the waterfalls
Royal Princess Royal Princess - We have been on several Princess Cruises and with the exception of the Dining Room issue (already discussed) they have always been good
Cozumel, Mexico - Always clean, and safe for walking around the entire town
Vision of the Seas Vision of the Seas - Special dining in the Chops restaurant was truly special. OUTSTANDING in every respect. Dining room service was slow (over two hours for all dinners) Windjammer was excellent
