Review summary

From the moment we boarded service was generally excellent, entertainment was superb and the food was fantastic. Given the increased number of platinum and elite guests, Princess needs to look into allocating more help to preferred boarding. There was a long line at preferred and no wait in the regular boarding line.  Regal is a large ship and despite everyone congregating inside because of the cold and windy weather the venues did not feel overly crowded except at shows. I do miss the central staircase and the wrap-around Promenade deck. We had a sideways inside cabin on this cruise and it was the quietest cabin ever with plenty of storage space. 


In my opinion the Captain made a great call in reversing the order of ports because of the weather. We would have probably missed St. John if he had not made this decision.


We chose Princess excursions on this cruise and were really glad we did.  The guides were excellent and very organized.

We missed the central staircase. We had to go all the way to the aft staircase to go to Horizon Court because of bad weather on deck. I refused to use the central elevator to go up one flight!
