The best part of this cruise was the fact that we escaped the sub zero temperatures back home. Princess is certainly going down hill and more about nickle and dimeing you versus trying to wow you and bring you back. I think we will be trying Royal Caribbean or Disney next time.
Overall we were very pleased with the ship and the cost value of the cruise. We enjoyed the "perks" we received both from (excursion $$$, shipboard credits) and from Princess (On Board Credits, Paid Gratuities, and a Specialty Dinner for 2) making our on board experience and anniversary most memorable.
Princess is our favorite cruises line. We had a great time at the shows and meeting new people at the Wheel House.
As mentioned before disappointed in not visiting Grand Turks - we paid a lot money to go the Princess Cays. Princess offers two days to Bahamas for a lot less.
very relaxing, enjoyable week! Crew was outstanding as was the ship. The food was better than great, it was outstanding, with superb quality and presentation! The buffet area on floor sixteen was the best I have ever seen with incredible variety and quality! Shows were fantastic! Thank you....
Ok cruise, will book with a better travel agency next time. Princess is starting to get pretty cheap on the food and beverages that they serve on board. I think from here on out will be sticking with Celebrity Cruises.
In the top 3 of the 20 cruises we have done. Friendly staff, beautiful clean ship. The foods other than speciality restaurant was redundant and mediocre. They did have an excellent pastry chef. For those that do smoke they have a great smoking area at the aft of the ship. Comfortable seating, ice water and coffee always available.
Overall the Regal Princess is a beautiful ship that has all the amenities that one would expect from a luxury cruise line. The ship was more concerned about their upcoming conversion to the Ocean Medallion brand that they are instituting next week. The people on this cruise were the guinea pigs for all of the glitches in the system. We had no TV for 5 days. Toilets did not flush, We suffered through rehearsal of the dance troupe's flag exercise. We had Jack hammering at 0700 two days. If you want to book a future cruise on board, forget it, the cruise consultant is so busy you cannot get in to talk to him. All in all, though, when they get this Ocean Medallion going it will be great, however, I felt like we paid for it. Princess gave us on Board credit for our trouble, but I could have done without the credit and got a smoother experience. This is a beautiful ship and if you are choosing a cruise this is one to go on.
Princess really has the cruising experience down. They thought of everything. One great feature is Princess@sea, a free webtool, where you can have your schedule, account and venue details right on your phone. You can also message other cruisers, all for no charge. The ship was beautiful and the staff was great. Food was good too.
Just what we needed...it was relaxing and we were well taken care of. We are not looking for a cruise that keeps us busy to the point of exhaustion so with our "pick and choose" approach to the ports and activities, this was great for us.
I still can't get over the size of the ship. It dwarfed any other ships near it. Service was lovely, and Yulia, Milan, Ricardo and Dragon made the cruise even better. Visiting with them was like seeing an old friend. The ports were excellent, and I would not mind going back to several of them. We are already thinking about our next cruise.
I would go on this ship again. It was very enjoyable and the crew were all so nice and the captain very informative. It was nice cause only a few announcements were made during the day and they were necessary ones-not ones trying to get people to come to bingo or art auctions or whatever.
Very nice cruise. The ship was excellent but the excursions were not as good as most we have been on. There was a nice selection of excursions but the guides were no very good and the timing on when we were in port, especially in Halafax was not ideal for the tours.
this is our second time on the Regal Princess.
It is a beautiful ship.
we enjoy the dining arrangement.
the piazza is first class, the center elevators could use some paintings when going up as the wall is black.
We really enjoyed our 25 day Baltic and transatlantic cruise on the Regal Princess! She was a beautiful ship, and had a great crew! We celebrated our 35th Anniversary aboard the vessel, and renewed our vows in the chapel with the Captain conducting the ceremony. Extremely memorable cruise! I would love to cruise on this class of ship again. The cantilevered walkway over the sea was awesome, and we loved the Princess theater with it's great shows!
Very disappointing experience. Princess charges a premium over it's peers (Celebrity Holland America) but does not deliver a premium product. Ship design limits chances to enjoy the views from an inside space. Staff is not customer focused and inattentive.
Touring the Baltic's is really a treat. Getting to see 6 countries in one cruise is really something. The Regal Princess is a beautiful ship and one we love to on again. The ports were amazing and this should be a must cruise for those who want to explore Northern Europe.
