First, this is our 2nd cruise with the Regal. Boarding was awesome, however recommend not to pre order your medallion,wait until you get to terminal. They are still working out the kinks with this process. For example,we ordered our medallion 3 wks before our cruise, however received another passengers medallion and someone else got ours. The Technolgy on the ship is amazing and blows all other cruise lines away. It’s so cool because their are cool apps you can download like ocean ready, ocean compass and play ocean. We used play ocean because of all the Triva games and new ones every day. We stayed in a balcony, D332 it was ok however we had to look down on a life boat, not cool. Our steward was Denchi he did and awesome job! Cabin was always clean, only wish Princes would install USB ports near the beds and a outlet in the bathroom. Our most memorable moment regarding entertainment was the group Beatlemania they were amazing, sounded and looked just like the Beatles. We didn’t go to any other shows,most were the Princes dancers which have seen before and the comedians according some of the passengers were only so so. We did however like the The Voice of the Ocean it was very similar to the real Voice. Regarding meals, we love that Princes still does not charge with Room service unlike other cruise lines. We used this service often. The only complaint would have to be the Horizon Buffett. It appeared to be lacking variety and served same food every morning and the lunches were also lacking. The main issue was they would take the lunch Buffett food down by 2:00 to prepare for dinner, so we just went to Alfredo’s Pizza which is free and amazing. We ate at the Crown Grill their steaks were amazing, however I think the choices on their menus are over tops, meaning just a salad would be nice, not all this fancy food . Can’t say enough about the pastry chef amazing desserts with every meal. The dining room meals were ok,again kind of over the top..keep it simple. We bought the beverage package, so totally worth it, unlike other cruise lines you get top shelf without any extra cost. Love the activities, so nice to see Oz who came from another cruise line. We played lots of Triva and met new friends, I wish they would have the Triva not in Princes Live no tables and can’t get your chairs in a circle. Wasn’t crazy about the Cruise Director never saw her except for special events. Love Alfredios Pizza especially Mica our sweet waitress. And omg the Lady Luck lady who hosted Bingo spoke to the passengers like we were kindergarten kids, awful and annoying. Our excursions to Princes Cay was the best, rented a 9.00 raft and enjoyed relaxing. Try to take the first boat off so you can get a good spot and a raft. Paid for a excursion at St Thomas, we took the St John Champagne tour it was second time going, however it was different they hired a new girl and she get pouring champagne mixed with rum punch, not smart... Dissembarking was quite easy we used Princes Transfer to the airport it cost but worth it. Because we opt to come one day earl, we rented a car best idea ever. Alamo rental has a car rental at the port you can drop your car off and a shuttle will take you to the port.. One last note during our cruise a small plane crashed with 2 men overboard, the Regal was the closest ship, Captain and crew did a fanstatic job with the rescue, both men were saved because of their expertise and speed.

We were just looking for a getaway (we live in Florida so weather not an issue). We had sailed on Princess before - and they had the best food of the "mainline" cruise companies - so that was our reason for picking the Regal Princess (and this part did not disappoint). We went all out and booked a full suite - and there, my friends, lies the problem. Very, very disappointed with Princess suite amenities - if we are going to pay almost $4000 for a one-week cruise, we expect to get amenities commensurate with that. First, the suite passenger venue (concierge lounge) wasn't worth going to - it was so small I would be embarrassed if I were Princess plus this is a pretty large ship and we were at the front and the lounge was as far aft as you can get and 3 decks up). Other than a one time minibar set up, we had to pay for everything: Every other ship we have been on over the past 4 years provides complimentary Wi-Fi to suite guests - but not Princess (150 complimentary minutes on one device - so either me or my wife was out of luck - so we didn't even bother). To me, the crowning insult was having to pay for a quiet spot on the upper decks. We both love to relax on a cruise so look for a quiet shady area to read, nap, etc. There aren't any such places on this ship unless you want to pay extra ($80/day for a cabana in the Retreat or a similar amount for a lounge chair in the Sanctuary). Our cabin was spacious - but the bedroom was probably 3 times the "living" area - seems to us they could have given you a little more room for when you are awake! Clearly Princess is trying to appeal to a younger audience - no quiet background music anywhere. And so much for their policy of not holding lounge chairs (supposedly in unoccupied for 30 minutes, the crew would remove belongings ha ha ha) I would go for a cup of coffee at 7:00 a.m. and most of the chairs already had stuff on them - but no people! And that goes for the minimal number "shady" chairs that were available. Enough - Princess is off our list!!! Read Less

This was my 26th cruise on Princess. They are the most consistent, affordable cruise line. The cabins are good sized. Plenty of storage. We were in a mini suite. Two TV's, a small balcony, toward the front of the ship. Bathroom had a bathtub which I don't care about but it was certainly roomy. The food is always consistent. I love eating at the buffet. Theme nights almost every night. Mongolian night and the Asian "bowl" nights are my favorites. Everything is made to order and outstanding. The rest of the nights are Italian, Mexican, American and Gala night. Each one is very good with many, many choices. The staff is so friendly and helpful. Our cabin steward was so efficient. Our cabin was cleaned and restocked minutes after we would leave the room. I think Princess has the best pizza on deck of any cruise line. Hamburgers are good also. The entertainment is good but not great. The crowning jewel is Movies Under The Stars. Absolutely love them. And current movies too. I love the free movies on the TV. All in all, we never have to worry if the cruise is going to be good, as they have all been good. That is more than I can say with other cruise lines that we have frequented. Read Less

We enjoy Princess because it fits our style as a couple: Princess ships are fundamentally ships, not floating amusement parks. The decor is very pleasant, particularly the piazza area. The balcony cabins are comfortable, and we find the food to be excellent. Regarding dining, we enjoy the buffet for breakfast and dinner, but use the main dining rooms in the evening. We will never sail with a cruise line that does not have open dining with tables for two, such as Princess's "Anytime Dining". Particularly on this cruise, getting a table was never a problem. The food and service in the main dining rooms were fine. We happened to receive a complimentary dinner in Sabatini's Italian restaurant, and were VERY impressed. Nex time we will be happy to pay the $25 each. The International Cafe and coffee bar is a highlight for us. The specialty coffees are reasonably priced and quite good, and the snacks and pastries are excellent. This ship had the new "Medallion" feature and vastly upgraded internet service. The medallion made embarkation go very smoothly and quickly and the internet service was almost like land-based wifi in its speed. Of course it is not free, but a much better value than the previous glacially slow service. Some of the ports were new to us: Belize and Roatan. In Roatan we just walked to the adjacent beach for free - very pleasant. In Belize (a long tender trip from ship to shore) we took the excursion to the Altun Ha ruins and were quite impressed. It is a treat to be able to climb on the pyramids, and seeing a little of Belize on the way was interesting. Read Less

We have cruised with Princess twice before and were happy with our experiences. This time we noticed all the cost cutting measures that have been taken. Ship was very crowded and priced were lowered closer to sailing. However, club class mini suite pricing was not lowered. Embarkation was great however next time I would not board until after noon. Disappointed with quality of toiletries, tissue, toilet paper and paper towels. Service was good and room was kept clean. Cabin was as expected but sofa bed was not comfortable and looked like it had seen better days. Club Class dining appears to be no different from regular dining as menus are the same with the exception of a chef cooking an entre, dessert or appetizer in the area (not at your table as advertised). Quality and types of main dishes is much lower. Few American dishes. Hamburgers are even compressed into a hard pattie. Club class dining is separate but not partitioned off so people from dining room were exiting our area. Service in CC dining was very good. Princess Theatre Troup entertainment used to be better; special entertainers were very good. No seating is set aside for suite class. Theaters are always crowded. No information is given about which entertainers will appear more than once until the day of appearance. Ports are good. Guest lecturers poor. Service, staff and baristas in International Cafe are exceptional. We received no forms for EZ Check or information until the deadline expired and customer service argued with us about receipt of those forms. No answer when calling room service when we did. There was no butler for minisuites. Staffing has been cut so these service personnel are really working extremely hard. Not enough waiter assistants. Bar service slow in dining room likely due to all the staffing cuts.. Back to Celebrity Cruiseline. Read Less

I chose this cruise because it had a great itinerary and length was great. We have cruises with Princess before and we’re very satisfied. Net time maybe I will pick a newer ship with Princess because Crown Princess was a little outdated... By the end of our cruise quite a few elevators were not working and with a lot of elderly on the ship it was difficult to get into an elevator. I was also disappointed that free coffee was instant coffee and it was gross. There is a fresh brew available but you have to pay for it. No big deal but I love good coffee. Service was great everywhere! If you are traveling with children the youth program is amazing! My son is 7 and he loved every minute of being in his club! Most excursions were great but pay attention to the details, some are short and you spend a lot of time waiting or on a bus Read Less

Wanted to try a different cruise line and I like the Itinerary. The selection in the Buffett was great. The food in general was great. The production shows were also good. What I was disappointed in ( in comparison to other cruises) was lack of comedians/comedy show. Unless you were into dance lessons, the cruise director was pretty much non existence....while I had a good time it lacked the vacation/party feel... some people may like nice and quiet.... I do it’s relaxing but not all the time. Don’t get me wrong I had a great time!!! The ship is beautiful.. I’ve been on RC, Carnival, Norwegian... I’ve had fun on them all... If you can’t find something on a cruise for you...... then your just not meant to have fun! I enjoyed the movies under the stars, they put cushions and pillows on the chairs for the movies. I did the soda package, which I thought was a good value. It also included “ cocktails”. I would also recommend the coffee card if your into specialty coffees. I would cruise again with Princess... but not married to them either. Read Less

We wanted to visit St Thomas again and see Jamaica for the first time. We had a great time. Regal Princess is very clean. Our Cabin was clean and well furnished. Bed and pillows very comfortable. The food was great. We used Formal Dining Room for supper and the buffet in the Horizon for the other meals. Great variety of foods to choose from. Room Attendant, dining room Attendants and the Service Desk Attendants friendly and knowledgeable. The entertainments fantastic, particularly "Bravo". Our excursions in St. Marteen and Jamaica were interesting and informative. Once more we enjoyed our stop in St. Thomas. I was upset for one thing though. On February 12th I ordered red roses for my wife for Valentin's Day. They were supposed to be delivered on February 14th. At 2:00 PM they were not in the Cabin yet. I went to the Service Desk to enquire as to what was going on. I was told at that time that they did not have red roses. I thought they should have informed me of the situation before I went to the Service Desk.. Overall, we had a great cruise experience. We cannot wait to have another cruise with Regal Princess.

Wanted to get away! Found the ship very disappointing with everything, our cabin and the steward that was assigned to our room. The Buffett were disappointing, had frozen little shrimp INSTEAD of REAL shrimp! At the pool I had a problem with moving a chair, the attendants wouldn’t help me. 730 one morning there was construction going on for an hour. The front desk was called and I was told it had to b looked into! Going away to relax and get rest, not to hear drilling on the ship! The cabins are made for small people. Murphy beds on each side. So quite difficult getting into our beds, so we had to crawl from bottom up I have been on princesses before, and was very upset the way everything was handled. I asked the front desk to compensate us for us be awakened up by drilling, ask for internet, I was told they aren’t allowed to do such, but made NO attempt to do anything. The ship needs a redone, although I c it was redone 2017. Where I don’t know! The ship is pretty large,not enough people to guide u to wherever location u had to go too. The food was just ok even in island dining room! The best food was at international cafe on 5th floor, ate there often. Not enough activities at the pool location. None in fact Read Less
