Better than imagined

Jan 21st, 2020

Relaxing scenic cruise where one could see the coastline most of the way. Visually stunning and able to be enjoyed from the deck or a balcony. Good times spent at the ports of call, and the ship was always a welcoming home after going ashore. I was really sad when this experience ended, and wished for a longer stay.

Terrible Experience

Jan 21st, 2020

Got food poisoning. (I found out when I got home another family my boyfriend knew also got food poisoning on this ship.) The food was terrible everywhere and everyone kept complaining. I should have known it was bound to happen. Ship was constantly moving and the crew boasted that they don't use the stabilizers in a presentation we watched! You could hear everything banging around in the dining rooms. Clothes were swinging in the closet and we had a room midship. The A/C didn't work in our room for a 1 1/2 days. Going out to Cabo in the little ships took forever to board and unboard while you sat in a tiny boat with no air flow. So you were forced to sit there and sweat. The service was terrible in the dining rooms and buffet. We even had to get our own water multiple times in the buffet because there was no wait staff around. Stay away from this ship unless you want to pay them to poison you.

Great Cruise

Jan 21st, 2020

Great Cruise. Weather was overcast for some days, but that is to be expected in October. Entertainment staff were great. We have been to Mexico before so the onshore trips were not that important to us. Overall very happy, already booked another cruise on Princess for the fall in southern Europe.

This was a very relaxing, just the right length of cruise needed to escape the cold of Montana for a week.

This cruise is highly recommended for someone who just wants to get away for a week and relax.

Enjoyable (1st) Christmas Cruise

I enjoyed spending my Christmas holiday on the Royal Princess overall. The ship was beautiful, the food and service were good, and the entertainment was good. I would take Princess again.
