  3. Regal Princess
My husband and I sailed on the Regal Princess in November and loved her. We have sailed Princess several times before and found a lot of similarities between the Regal and other Princess ships, and some differences. The ship is beautiful. Her decor is lots of creams, beige, gold - light and airy feeling. The Piaza is impressive. It is the hub of the ship - IC, Alfredo's, the Gelato place etc are all in the Piaza. There is entertainment off and on all day here. It is a great place to sit and people watch. I was prepared to dislike to fact that there was no full promenade deck, but we were pleasantly surprised by the sitting areas on the promenade deck - nice deck furniture made for pleasant times watching the waves, reading etc. We honestly didn't miss a full wrap around deck. The service on board was excellent, provided by smiling and friendly staff. We loved the Horizin court/bistro. It is huge, has tons of seating and the food areas are well laid out and give lots of options. This area is the best of any ship we have sailed on. The main dining rooms are nice, similar to the other Princess ships we have been on. Over all, the food on the Regal was very good. Our cabin, a balcony on Baja deck was lovely. Bathroom was small, but the shower seemed a bit bigger than on previous Princess ships. Bed was very comforetable, unlike previous rock hard mattresses on Princess. Pillows were nice. The balcony was small, just enough room for 2 chairs and a small table. We knew that going in so it wasn't a surprise. It was fine. Entertainment was quite good. Two things that annoyed us: seeing men in the MDR in ratty shorts, even on a formal night. Granted, it was only one or two, but why have rules if you don't enforce them. Secondly, I had to complain twice to the passenger services desk about a man on the balcony below us smoking. First off, smoking is not allowed on balconies. Secondly, he was flicking his ashes over the balcony onto the top of the lifeboat below us which could be a huge fire risk. After the second call, which was I think day three of the cruise, I never saw him smoking again, so maybe the staff got it through his head that smoking really isn't allowed on balconies. Over all we had a wonderful cruise. We loved the Regal and would sail on her again in a heartbeat.
