Royal Princess

March 2016 - 10 Night Eastern Caribbean Voyager (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Royal Princess

Royal Princess Cruise Eastern Caribbean Voyager

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.

March 2015 - 11 Night Panama Canal Partial Transit (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Coral Princess

Panama Canal Cruise

This year my husband and I decided to celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary by going on another Princess cruise.  We chose the Panama Canal 11 day partial transit.  It was an experience I wouldn't have missed.  The weather was beautiful and the 5 different countries we visited were educational and lovely.  We visited Aruba, Columbia, Panama, Costa Rica and Jamaica.  Princess cruise lines have always been our top choice in cruising.  The Coral Princess ship is just the right size as the ship was not overcrowded.  Food was good and fresh in all areas we ate (buffet, the grill and the dining room).  Our balcony stateroom was clean but the size of the bathroom is quite small.  I would recommend the mini-suite for all cruises (we are going to try to afford the upgrade on all our cruises from now on).  The towels in the bathroom weren't the best quality.  The daytime entertainment (or lack of) by the pool was very disappointing.  Not much really was happening during our sea days.  However, every night there was good entertainment throughout the ship.  

The excursions were very reasonable in price and enjoyable.The seas were a little choppy and windy the first couple of days.

I would recommend this cruise - seeing the Panama Canal in action was quite interesting.  I always recommend Princess Cruise Lines.

The employees in the photo gallery took the greatest pictures of us while on board.  Lloyd the bartender next to the grill serves an awesome drink.  The woman in the ice cream area was very friendly and all smiles.  In fact all the crew members we encountered always had smiles.  This is one of the many reasons we choose Princess.

Caribbean Princess

November 2014 - 5 Night Western Caribbean Getaway (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Caribbean Princess

Costa Maya and Cozumel

This was a very relaxing cruise out of Port Everglades, Fl going to Costa Maya and Cozumel Mexico for the week of Thanksgiving.

The ship was very clean and the crew were fantastic. Extremely comfortable mini suite and the steward was wonderful.

Food was so so but I don't have high expectations cruising in the Caribbean.

I would recommend this cruise due to the ship and crew.

Ship is extremely easy to maneuver. Wish there was no smoking in the casino as the smoke tends to linger throughout the ship.
