Review summary

An excellent, cruise.  We departed Fort Lauderdale on April 2, landed in Hamburg, Germany, on April 17.  Weather during the second week was a disappointment: at our first port (Ponta Delgada), our guide said we were there on the coldest day of the year and it had been 20 degrees warmer a week earlier; in Germany, our guide told us "worst weather in 20 years"!  So we didn't use the pools or hot tubs the second week of the cruise, but it didn't dampen our spirits.  Note: the same cruise in 2018 is scheduled two weeks later than this one.  As expected, excellent entertainment and excellent food.  We met some people we enjoyed visiting with so much, that we closed the dining room every night the second week.  Regal Princess was in good condition, no major breakdowns.  I chose this cruise because of the sea days, port of Normandy (for D Day excursion), and ending in Germany.  May take this cruise again next year.

Cabin / Stateroom

We had a balcony on Deck 8 mid-ship by panoramic elevators - very convenient to everything. It was small, but adequate.

Ship tip

Twice I made dinner reservations for a group of 14, and it worked well. Head waiter accommodated my request to provide hard boiled eggs so we could knock-eggs on Easter. Waitress knew our names and preferences the third night.

Ports of call
