Review summary

We loved the cruise.  The Royal Princess is a beautiful ship.  Elegantly decorated.  The service was amazing as usual and the food was excellent.  We got our usual aft facing balcony which was nice and large but you got more soot than normal on this ship than others for some reason. The showers were a few inches larger which made a huge difference but the bathroom it self seemed a little smaller which was ok.  Room was comfy with a small couch and coffee table. Large closet with lots of hangers.   Large screen flat tv on the wall and there was an amazing amount of tv shows, movies and news to keep you happy.  Alot more than other ships.   

Only a couple of disappointments:  no stairs in the middle of the ship and no walking area on deck 7.

make sure you sit on a towel as the soot is everywhere. Balcony is larger than most which is a plus. Worth the price.

Be prepared to do alot of walking. The ship is huge but never seemed crowded.

Tours were all booked that we wanted so we took one off the pier which was one of the best tours we have ever done. Tour guide was so hyper about the island which made it tons of fun.

Oranjestad, Aruba

We just walked around here as we had been here a few times. Very hot so we didn't go too far. A beautiful island.
