Loved the size of the ship. It was easy to get around. The captain was great and made a point to visit with us on many occasions.

Pros: The size of the ship and the great staff who served us so well.

Cons: The stop in Tobago. Also, our hallway had a very strong smell of tobacco.

Recommends Royal Princess (RETIRED) 558? Yes!

Ship Quality
Everything was in great condition except for the tobacco smell in our hallway. The ship and our room were kept up well.
Food and Dining
The food was excellent. We were a little disappointed in Sabbatini's restaurant this time. It wasn't up to our expectations in food and service.
The Grill and Buffet were outstanding. We also were impressed with Macarena. She always had a smile and fun conversations with us.
Cabin / Stateroom
Anthony kept our room in excellent condition. The room itself was very comfortable and we enjoyed the balcony when it wasn't too humid.
Service and Staff
Lito and Juan were our servers at dinner and they were very attentive and fun. Several of us are diabetic and Lito had a special sugar free key lime pie made for us which was delicious! We switched seats almost every night and they always remembered each of our food preferences.
We travelled with two other couples and a single person. The single had a suite and invited us for cocktails. The suite was fantastic and we all enjoyed it.
We liked the entertainment a lot.
