The excursion movie tour in Monterey was to see. You need to sign up as early as possible because it sells out quickly. Sign up for it online at least 2 months before your cruise.

Not as many options for younger people (18-35). If your port requires a tender, plan on getting to the meeting point 30 minutes to an hour before you want to get off, as it takes forever on a ship this size.

Don’t. Their entertainment is not geared to be enjoyable for a broad age group. Tough to find fun things to do on sea days

Beautiful ship! Select a middle cabin if you can.

Get ready to come back “alive”! The Royal is a marvelous ship and the crew are simply amazing. Our tip, let yourself go and explore.

While they are still testing Ocean Medallion, if we order a drink through the App, the first drink was free. Not sure how long the freebie will be available.

Have patience...a ship this size doesn’t always sail with nice ppl. There will be a few ppl that should have booked a dingy!!!

Ask for ice daily for your water as the fridge is not a fridge, more like a cooler. Your steward will be happy to accomodate.

Make sure to order Medallions before cruise.

Princess ruises does not deliver on the itinerary they publish. We were on a 12 day Alaska cruise from LA with 4 stops an the week before the cruise they eliminated a port stop (they actually kept the stop but no one could get off the ship). VERY disappointing in this company, plus we couldn't board until 5pm. They gave everyone a $25 shipboard credit to compensate - that's laughable.

I would say if you are a senior citizen this would be the trip for you. It was absolutely no fun. And I will never take this cruise line again.

Know that if you want lots of entertainment and shows, this line is not for you. If you just want laid back and relax this is the cruise line for you.

Bring water, soft drinks as much as you can, since they charge for these. But you can request glasses of water free and use ice cubes in your frig.
