Great trip on a great cruise ship

The Regal Princess is one of the best Princess cruise liners I've been on.  The staff were excellent, the entire ship spotless, the service above average.  Though there are over 3,500 passengers on board, the public area is better than some other Princess ships and again, the service excellent.


The itinerary was very good.  I especially enjoyed Tallinn, Estonia (what a delight to spend time in the Old town) and St. Petersburg, so rich in history.  We were there 2 days and took the ship's tour, which was excellent.  Copenhagen was also a wonderful place to visit.   All in all, the trip was all I had hoped for. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Very clean, comfortable bed, excellent service by the room steward.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
I have never experienced such a well organized and easy embarkation and disembarkation.

Copenhagen, Denmark
Go there a few days early and enjoy this lovely city. We took the Hop On-Hop Off bus and it worked well for us.
Oslo, Norway
Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany
FInd a private tour that doesn't use the train (which Princess tours do). Be prepared for a long ride there and back. But it was the only time we'd ever see Berlin so we are glad we went.
Tallinn, Estonia
Give yourself enough time to walk around the old city. Wear good shoes, as the cobblestoned streets are hard to walk on.
St. Petersburg, Russian Federation
Helsinki, Finland
Nynashamn (Stockholm), Sweden


They have "Anytime dining" but you couldn't make reservations for some of the times we wanted. However, we had no problem going for dinner at 6 PM or earlier. Much later than that and there was a waiting line. I do like Anytime dining better than fixed.
