We chose this itinerary on the Regal Princess as it was a Birthday Cruise and was a trip we've had on our bucket list.


We were a little displeased with the embarkation process in Fort Lauderdale--it seemed very chaotic.  It's been years since we had to wait so long to board. Additionally, we were sent up the forward ramp, which was on an incline, as my Dad was using a cane. They sent several handicapped folks up this steep ramp, rather than the main ramp, located in mid-ship, that was on a level--made no sense at all! They didn't even give us time to have our photos taken--very unhappy about that.


One last thing that seemed odd: there were a lot of folks celebrating birthdays and anniversaries but there were a group of cabins that had their doors decorated, had banners taped to the walls and balloons and lanterns strung around the handrail, which interfered with the room stewards, folks walking down the aisle and the baggage handlers. We reported it but nothing was done about it. I couldn't believe Princess would allow folks to put tape on their walls (the decorations frequently fell down on the floor) and wrap items around handrails--it seemed a safety hazard to us and not just tacky.


Our Stateroom was a suite in the front of the ship and we were THRILLED!!! We had a fantastic view of the bow from our window (and had a balcony, too) and we sat in front of the window frequently, to watch our progress across the Atlantic.


The disembarkation process went very smoothly and the Princess staff on the ship were all TERRIFIC!!!Love

Cabin / Stateroom
LOVED this suite as the room was very large and had a window that gave us a view of the bow. We were also thrilled there were two sinks in the bathroom, one on each side and, as there were 3 of us, it was very handy!
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarkation was not good as noted in my review. Disembarkation went VERY well and we were very pleased--easiest disembarkation we've ever experienced!
