Royal Princess

January 2015 - 10 Night Southern Caribbean Medley (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Royal Princess

Great ship but too many passengers

Spent 10 days on the Royal Princess.  Fourth cruise on the Princess line.  Entertainment, dining experience, buffet, and cabin all very good.  Big problem is the number of passengers on board.  Whenever a major event occurred the hallways were jammed with people.  We were forced to arrive 30-45 minutes to any show to guarantee a seat.  I know there are three showtimes for the production shows but folks were going to only the first two.  I look for a smaller ship next time with less passengers.  Another small but important benefit of the Princess ships is the self-service washing machines and dryers they have on each passenger deck.  That really helps cut down the amount luggage carried on board.

majorgbailey's Tips

Puntarenas, Costa Rica - We went to watch a horse show. It was great! (Expensive, but great.) This excursion would have been vastly improve by having even a simple brochure to explain each section of the performance. We needed something to explain what we were seeing to appreciate the level of difficulty.
Panama Canal Transit - This was fabulous!!! I booked this trip because it fit with our schedule. The Panama Canal Transit was so interesting and educational. We had someone talking about the transit the entire time. He gave us antidotes and explained every step of the way. We thoroughly enjoyed the transit.
Oranjestad, Aruba - We went on a snorkeling excursion. Nice trip. Water was a bit cloudy, but it was warm. We did see wildlife and enjoy the trip.
Coral Princess Coral Princess - If I were sailing to the Panama Canal again, I might splurge on a balcony cabin to watch the passage through the locks. We are hardly ever in our cabins and usually book an interior.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - We had a snorkeling excursion. The excursion should have been cancelled. The water was too rough. It was coming over our snorkels. Too rough for kayaking too. The reason I gave it three stars was because the staff onboard was truly wonderful. They took us to watch whales, did a great little skit, and gave us a nice lunch.
