The Royal Princess is a beautiful, but poorly designed ship.  The theater is small and poorly designed resulting in the necessity of 3 shows on many nights.  If you are on the first level, the seats are not inclined enough to give you a good view of the stage.  The elevators were the worst of any ship I have been on.  They need to either have more or have the synchronization reviewed so that you do not spend so much time waiting.  The service in the Horizon Buffet was often lacking.  Many mornings, my husband and I got our own coffee.


On a positive side, the ship is beautiful.  The entertainment was probably the best I have seen on any cruise.  Their production company is, without doubt, the best we have seen and their shows were terrific, as were the comedian and the illusionist.  Our cabin was very nice and the steward was excellent.

If there is a show you particularly want to see, arrive early to get a good seat, particularly if there are only two shows. Theater is small. Plan on waiting for elevators.
