  3. Regal Princess
We're experienced cruisers, doing 2-4 per year. We were invited on this cruise as a result of my wife's activities in the casino from a Nov. Caribbean Princess cruise. Breakfast and lunch in the buffet...wide variety of foods available...decent quality...dinner in the MDR. My wife has many food allergies and they prepared a great dinner and desert for her each evening. The one thing that spoils our dinner in the MDR is that the dress code was not enforced, even on formal evenings. We have no problem with men wearing a jacket and not having a tie, but it's disgusting when they allow men in wearing shorts, tee shirts, and flip flops. We've been on other lines where men have been refused entry to the MDR because of their clothes. We docked in Havensight at St. Thomas....all of the stores were open but we did see a few blue tarps on the hillside. St. Martin - a lot of the stores at the dock were open and it appeared that some had been torn down. We took the water taxi to downtown. On average, I'd guess that only about 20% of the stores were open. Lots of bldgs boarded up or being worked on. The casino....for a change I won...my wife tried and tried, but the more she tried, the more she lost. The entertainment was fantastic. The BeatleManics one night, a really funny comedian two nights, and production shows. We had seen 3 of them before, but they were still enjoyable. A new show, "Love to Dance" was one of the best productions shows we've ever seen on a cruise ship.
