Regal Princess Cruise Review by gearshift
- Sail Date: January 2015
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Balcony
Princess has upped their food a few notches. We only went into the formal dining (anytime dining) twice the entire 7 day cruise. The buffet food in the Horizon Court was fantastic! The variety and the taste was beyond anything I expected. We have done two RCCL's and Eight Princess Cruises and Princess has always had better food. Alfredo's is our favorite "free" restaurant. And the pizza both at Alfredo's and Prego (poolside) is the best pizza at sea.
The one thing that I think Princess has to work on is the entertainment. Although the first night they had a comedian/magician that was extremely entertaining. The Princess entertainers go all out to do a good job for you, but the "Broadway" element is missing. RCCL does have a better entertainment venue.
I guess I'm a bit partial to Princess being a Platinum Member, and all I have to compare it to is two sailings with RCCL on the Liberty of the Seas and the Oasis, but we do tend to gravitate to a more traditional type of cruising. Most of the Princess ships are so beautiful and tastefully decorated that you feel that you are getting a lot for your money.
