Review summary

Weather was cool the first sea day out but got better. The Royal is a gorgeous ship. Tip: if you like your specialty coffees, you can find them at the pastry shop in the middle of the buffet. Nice time saver instead of going down to the international cafe then going back to the lido deck.

As always Princess out does its self, although maybe it’s just me but the buffet seemed almost too large?

Onboard Activities

Very much enjoyed the pools. The poolside contests were awesome eg: men’s sexy legs contest 😂

Great entertainment. I did wish that more would have been held in a larger venue other than Princess Live, for more seating, but overall the game shows were very entertaining.

We normally don’t do this but we took an excursion from someone standing outside the gates. $30.00 a person gave us a catamaran ride out past the caves, we saw jelly fish, whales and sea lions. Then it took us to Stone island which lunch and all you could drink plus our choice of 2 activities were also included. We chose the banana boat & horse and buggy ride. The guide made sure we all were on our way back to the ship by 2:30. Plenty of time to still check out the market outside the port. Was a great day!

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Our day was cut short. Had to be back on the ship by noon. I still rated Cabo a 5 because it’s not their fault :)
