10 Night Southern Caribbean Medley (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 08, 2015
Ship: Royal Princess
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: C216
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

Spent 10 days on the Royal Princess.  Fourth cruise on the Princess line.  Entertainment, dining experience, buffet, and cabin all very good.  Big problem is the number of passengers on board.  Whenever a major event occurred the hallways were jammed with people.  We were forced to arrive 30-45 minutes to any show to guarantee a seat.  I know there are three showtimes for the production shows but folks were going to only the first two.  I look for a smaller ship next time with less passengers.  Another small but important benefit of the Princess ships is the self-service washing machines and dryers they have on each passenger deck.  That really helps cut down the amount luggage carried on board.
