Royal Princess Cruise Eastern Caribbean Voyager

Sail Date: March 13, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Suite

The Royal is a beautiful ship and the staff of Princess are energetic and friendly.

Food was good whether you ate at the buffet, outside grill or in the symphony dining room.  On the formal nights, the food is a little more upscale in the dining room, which is always nice. Our mini suite balcony stateroom was quite big, however, the balcony was smaller than other Princess ships. 10 days in the Caribbean was a little long and the islands were okay.  We took an excursion from St. Thomas over to St Johns, which was the most beautiful island on this trip. Would have liked to stay more on this island.  For 10 days on a ship, I would prefer Alaska again or the Panama Canal again.

Overall, I'm glad we went as we were with 3 other couples whom we met last year on the Panama Canal trip thru Princess.  

Cabin / Stateroom
Balcony was smaller than other Princess ships.
Bathroom towels could have been a little nicer.
The pool towels are much better quality than the staterooms, and for a mini suite one would hope for better quality.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
easy on and easy off
Ship Quality
beautiful ship and great staff
