Review summary

The Regal Princess is a beautiful ship. The shows and singers and dancers were phenomenal. Pool area was nice and the large screen added a nice touch, especially with video of fish, coral , turtles, etc.  When we got on the ship we were bombarded with everyone trying to sell drink packages.  I estimate 10 different staff tried to sell it to us. Not classy.   Not impressed with the food selection, availability and quality. Showed up at the Crown Grill 20 minutes before lunch closing time and was told it was closed.  Had no idea on when restaurants were open or closed. It was closed on Saturday at sea. Need a consistent food offering. Pizza/grill closed at 11:00pm. Also, sitting in the Allegra dining room over what seemed to be an engine room was awful!  The vibrations were really bad. Could not get into the marriage show or comedian.  Too small a venue. The princess@sea communication was up and down and not reliable at all. Best part was being with family!
