Review summary

We have done this itinerary 3 times now and loved each time. Royal Class ships with Medallion Class experience made this one the best. Highly recommend this cruise


5 out of 5
So amazingly fast and simple. On the ship in 10 minutes from curb to cabin!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
As always with Princess, top notch. Alfredos Pizza is a must do spot. Horizon Court is WAY better on Royal class ships then others (even though they are good too)

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5


3 out of 5
Entertainment quality (shows, performers) was not as good as has been on other ships. This is an area they can certainly work on.

Children's Programs

No kid and frankly not the demographic Princess goes for (and a reason why we like Princess)

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Each and every interaction with crew was amazing. Hard to believe that on the biggest ship, they had the best service

Cabin / Stateroom

Balconies on the Royal Class ships are smaller. Not a big deal as the cabins are very nice. Gladly trade the smaller balcony for all the bigger things throughout the ship

Ship tip

Don't hesitate. Our favorite ship so far and we have been on 8 prior.

Ports of call

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

4 out of 5
Cabo is really San Diego south. Not a true Mexico experience and priced higher than Mexico should be. Worth visiting but PV is better

Mazatlan, Mexico

4 out of 5
More Mexico than Cabo. Do take the hike up to El Faro. Price is right and great views. Guides are amazing

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

5 out of 5
We actually were married in this port, on this itinerary with Princess in 2007. Love PV and best port on the trip


5 out of 5
Same as embarkation. Super fast, well organized and easy
