Sail Date: December 01, 2013
Ship: Royal Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Ship is beautiful, but public areas downsized (theater) so they can cram more people in smaller spaces. Beware - do not book a balcony room for three people. The berth is down 14-15 hours per day, blocking access to the balcony, as well as the dresser (mirror, drawers) and the refrigerator. We tried to get an upgrade, but were told none were available. We found 8 mini suites on Deck 14 empty! They said there were "mechanical problems" with these rooms; however, they were for rent the day before sailing.

Food and Dining

Food was very good; however, the Horizon and Bistro were crowded, with people running over you to get to the food.
