February 2014 - Royal Princess to Caribbean - Eastern
Ships main dining room food was poor. Our party of 10 returned food for oversalting or poorly cooked. To get an excellent meal, plan on spending more money going to the speciality restaurtants. Theater shows were only 30 minutes long and productions were very fair. We could only get a 6 P.M. reservation for Anytime dining and had to rush to get to the 8:30 P.M. show in order to find seats. Unless you were there by 8P.M. most seats were taken.
Common areas seemed small for a ship carrying over 3000 passengers. It was very difficult to find lounge chairs at the pool during sea days. You may have to find yourself paying a hefty fee to reserve a lounge chair at the Princess Sanctuary. Only when we stayed aboard the ship during port days did we enjoy sitting around the pool. We decided not to go into town or the beaches in St. Thomas because there were 3 ships docked the Allure being one them with 6,000 passengers.
We had a mini-suite cabin which was fine, but our friends complained about how small their regualr balcony cabins were.
Our party have all been on many luding Princess and we were agreed this cruise and ship was very disappointing .
