September 2018 - 11 Night Fall Foliage Southbound (Quebec City To Cape Liberty) Cruise on Adventure of the Seas
Novel fall cruise
October 2015 - 20 Night Caribbean Explorer (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Royal Princess
Glamorous ship; interesting itinerary.
The Royal Princess is one of the largest and newest in the Princess fleet. It is elegant in appearance. Food is AWAYS available somewhere. Unlike some ships , it is not a floating water park (no slides) nor does it have the bumper cars, skating rink, etc. of the newer Royal Caribbean ships. The production shows are excellent. The staff appeared to be consistently efficient and friendly. We were primarily interested in the value for the money and the Caribbean Medley itinerary which included islands we haven't seen before. If you can live without a rock-climbing wall and a water slide, this is an attractive cruise.
Adventure of the Seas
Any time dining
Didn't get there but, again, there appears to be a lot to do right at the pier without spending extra on tours.
We didn't get there this trip but our favorite in the past was the tour to Trunk Bay on St. John.
There is a FREE bus ride around Old San Juan that you can get on near the cruise port. You can hop off and on as frequently as you like. We found a boat ride around the harbor on TripAdvisor for $40 pp.
The beach is right off the pier. Don't waste money on a tour.
The Alegro dining room (fixed schedule seating) is reached by taking the rear elevator down to the sixth deck. It is cut off from the rest of deck six and cannot be reached by going up from a lower deck.
