7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 08, 2013
Ship: Royal Princess
Cabin Type: Suite
Cabin Number: R333
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 4 years ago

The ports were wonderful, as always.  Our cabin attendant and waiters were excellent.  All of the ship staff that we encountered were attentive, patient and helpful.  Our cabin was acceptable.  We were disappointed overall with the ship.  It felt cramped and claustrophobic.  It appears that this ship was designed more for efficiency and economy than the comfort and convenience of the passengers.  Our biggest disappointment is with the Travel Agent.


We were traveling with a small group of 14.  We booked our cabins in September of 2012 and we selected cabins on the same deck close to each other.  We were all assigned different cabins on different decks after we had made the final cruise payment.  The cruise line blamed the travel agent and the travel agent blamed the cruise line.  This is unacceptable.  We have cruised more than 30 times and this was our fifth or sixth with Princess.  We will not book with a travel agency again and we will be very cautious about booking with Princess in the future.  Thank you for soliciting our opinion.

Ship Tip

The kindest way to describe this ship is to refer to it as generic.
