May 2017 - 10 Night Western Mediterranean (Rome To Barcelona) Cruise on Royal Princess
November 2016 - 10 Night Southern Caribbean Medley (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Royal Princess
The Royal Princess experience started bad. The check- in was slow and disappointing. The keys to my cabin were not found by the clerk who was to check us in. After standing there for 15 minutes while she checked both sides of the check-in key storage bins, we were told to go have a seat in a waiting area. She had to call down to the ship to have keys made. We waited there 30 minutes for keys. We were given keys and went to the next check-in point. The keys did not work. We were told to go sit on a bench and wait for new keys. We waited 30 minutes and finally asked the last person who was leaving this security point what we should do. He brought us on the ship and told us to go to passengers services to get keys. My wife was so mad she did not want to go on this cruise. We told the rep what happened to no satisfaction. The second day we found a plate of cream puffs and a note of apology. Big Deal! The caring, follow through and communication was absent. The first 2 days were ruined. The next 8 days were great. The food, service and cabin steward were great. The ship and shore excursions were great. I hope our boarding bad experience was isolated.
August 2016 - 4 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Majesty of the Seas
Good quick trip
The service was great. The dinning room food was good. The buffets were average. The headliners were great. The dancing and singing show was average. The ship was well kept for an older ship. If wanted, the facilities and activities can keep you busy.
March 2016 - 10 Night Panama Canal Sunfarer (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Zuiderdam
A cruise worth the money
The boarding was smooth. The staff was great. The food was good. On the formal night they need to have someone guiding people to the proper side for the reservations or any time dining. The ship is showing its age. A main pipe broke down stairs and all the water was turned off for an hour. I was in the shower covered in soap and had to rinse off with bottled water. A nice surprise was the Pickle Ball court. The court is on the very top deck and is all enclosed with netting. they supply the balls and paddles.
Go Jeep Tequila & beach was a fun excursion
