Royal Princess is a newer ship which was nice. There was many different options for food. The service was fantastic and it was kept very clean. 

Unfortunately after recently sailing on a Princess cruise some of the shows we replayed. Princess no longer has the tv channel of the map of the ocean, temperature and wave size. On my past cruises the tv was set up like cable. This time it was more like an android box. It would have been kind of Princess to alert their passengers when booking the cruise that they would need to pay for a shuttle at some of the ports as this was mandatory on a couple of ports. 

Cabin / Stateroom
I asked before booking the cabin if it was above or below a noisy area. With the open concept we could hear loud music into the night.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Very clean
Destinations and Excursions
Should have mentioned that paid shuttles would be necessary at certain ports at an added cost
Onboard Activities
It was typically the same every night
Children's Programs
Some repeats of shows from previous cruise with the same costumes and songs.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
More options than previous cruises.
