Review Summary

The Regal Princess is one of the newest ships to sail the New England coast trips. The ship is simply beautiful, with noticeably modern upgrades found in the Piazza, and buffet area. Ports of call were perfectly chosen, with ample time to tour, and enjoy the fall colors. A great surprise was finding Princess now adding 'pickleball' to the choice of sports offered! Entertainment was good as expected, however the theatre felt smaller than other Princess ships, and was filled at least 30 mins before showtime. You either stand in the back of the theatre, or go to the later show which wasn't as crowded as the 8 pm. Found the 'anytime dining' to need some TLC. This option has become quite popular with waiting times for a table to about an hour on formal nights. Princess needs to figure out a better way to get passengers seated as many opting for this type of seating. All in all this was a perfect cruise, and I would totally recommend it!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The mini suite was a good size with ample enough room for two. The new bedding, and mattress made for a comfortable night's sleep. the vanity now holds the hairdryer in the cabinet drawer so easy to find, and use. Flat screen t.v.(1 over near the bed, 1 near the sofa) large enough refridgerator to hold wine bottles, balcony wasn't all that big, but big enough for 2 chairs, and a small table. The bathroom has a great shower head, and bath gel is now supplied in the shower in large bottles for easy use.

Ship Tip

If you are anytime dining, make sure you arrive early or make a reservation. Be prepared to wait a while to be served once you are seated. Having a happy hour bite before you go to dinner would probably be a good idea. Also get to the theatre about 30 mins. before show time to get a seat.

Newport, Rhode Island

If not taking an excursion, do you own walking tour around the Church area. There is great history around town, with several historical houses, and museums.

Boston, Massachusetts

5 out of 5
Take the 'hop off/hop on' bus once you leave the ship to get into town. Take the Freedom Trail to get the true feel of Boston. North End for lunch!
