Regal Princess

October 2016 - Regal Princess to Canada, New England, New York

Fall Beauty

This was a family reunion type trip and it was perfect for us to be together and to see all the beautiful fall colors.  Mother Nature provided the beauty but she also provided some rough weather that prevented us from visiting St. John but our captain made a wise decision to not attempt to put his ship or passengers in jeopardy.  To be truthful, we sincerely enjoyed the addition sea day to relax and kick back.  It was much needed and truly enjoyed.  We all were anxious for our "lobster fix" and managed to squeeze it in in Bar Harbor plus the chowder in Boston.  Just can't get enough of the great fresh seafood.

We particularly enjoyed spending time in the Enclave.  We like traveling on the ships that offer this amenity.  It is so restful and relaxing.  Just wish it were offered on more ships.  The food selections were particularly good in the Horizon restaurants.  The carving meats were specially delicious.   We were disappointed not to have more opportunity for bread pudding and tapioca and other comfort foods we all love.  Just had to fill in with more ice cream.  In spite of all the goodies, it really is possible to eat hearty and still not gain too much weight.  You just have to pick carefully.  All in all a good cruise and an outstanding Captain.

Therapeutic Vacation

Our cruise was just what the doctor ordered, a restful break in our hectic life.  This is a beautiful ship and the staff were all extremely friendly and helpful.  We had usually stayed away from the larger ships because of the "crowd" feeling but other than our time at the Lido buffet we were never aware of any huge "crowds".  Things are broken up into smaller alcoves and intimate areas.  We spent most of our time utilizing the Spa and The Enclave.  Those services alone made the trip well worthwhile for us.  Our cabin was comfortable and we enjoyed viewing first rate movies in the comfort of the cabin.  We have traveled numerous times on several ships, but this was one of the smoothest trips we have encountered.  We were seldom aware of any movement of the ship.

sgcourtney's Tips

Regal Princess Regal Princess - Be aware that a set of stairs are missing in the center elevator area so book accordingly.
Ruby Princess Ruby Princess - The new onboard communication system (via princess@sea private email was a plus for keeping in touch with other members of our party
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas - We had chosen not to take an excursion and that was good as this was a rain day for us so we wandered into town instead.
Regal Princess Regal Princess - If you want to eat at a particular time in the "anytime" dining, make your reservations early on that day or you could be facing long lines in the "walk- in" line, especially on formal nights or if you have a large party.
