Royal Princess Cruise Review by DRun

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2019
  • Destination: the Mexican Riviera
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Balcony

The largest balcony rooms (not suites) were too small and too much furniture. Food was not good. It seems the chef likes to make the food look good, but it honestly had no taste. They served a lot of pork meals - probably because pork is so cheap. Not impressed. The medallion method is awesome. We never had to sign anything and were able to use the apps to see what was going on around the ship without carrying the agenda around with us all day. The entertainment was second rate at best. Typical comedian - a constant barrage of not funny cruise jokes. There was a juggler that didn't really juggle very well. The 2 female singers had talent. Not sure how the 2 male singers ended up in this production. The best entertainment we saw was the cruise director (he was funny and friendly) and the games they played. The internet access was amazing - the best we've had on a cruise ship. This will most likely be the last Princess cruise for us. The cons definitely outweighed the pros.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Balcony
Cabin DB M724

We chose the back of the ship because usually the balconies are larger. It was larger than others onboard that particular ship, but not at all impressive. Our deck (and me while trying to enjoy the sun) kept getting covered with soot - presumably from the engine. Where else would soot come from in the middle of the ocean?
