Regal Princess Cruise Review by Jimorel
- Sail Date: February 2018
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Interior
Our only other cruise was on Majesty of the Seas.
The hotel shuttle turned to port and there she be,
Wow, was the first word that came to me.
Forty minutes from hotel to cabin door,
For a speedy start who could want more?
It was a great way to begin a cruise,
Even if our interior cabin had no views.
We ignored Cruise Critic info,
And off to the buffet we did go.
To say it was crammed full of folk,
Would certainly not be a joke.
Muster drill and the party to sail away,
The start of our West Caribbean get-a-way.
Sunday night and early Monday at sea.
Princess Cays is where we need to be.
The private island was not a drag,
But, about it I would not brag.
The food was generic with no local taste,
However, I am pretty sure none went to waste.
The island was fairly crowded that is for sure,
Sunbathing, swimming and snorkeling in water pure.
Back to the Regal we did return,
Thanks to 70 SPF, we did not burn.
Our evening meal was at Crown Grill,
The filet and trimmings were a thrill.
After that we found our way to deck sixteen,
Some popcorn (not hull less) and a big movie screen.
Tuesday, a full day on the ocean,
With just a little hint of motion.
February in shorts and swimsuit is cool,
Hanging out with hundreds by the pool.
Then it was time to sit for dinner,
Each course was a grand prize winner.
Hoping for a good seat, we took a chance,
And did we ever enjoy "Born to Dance".
Wednesday and we are not sailing south,
Heading to the Jamaican port, Falmouth.
Near the port there is not much to see,
So we booked a "Discover Jamaica" journey.
The Regal must have a great kitchen,
But, tonight we "settled" for chicken.
The main was so-so, but dessert was great,
Off to see "Fiera" and it was truly first rate.
Grand Cayman is the stop on Thursday,
Will we visit the town of Hell again, no way!
Friday morning is our last port day,
Twelve hours in Cozumel, OLE!
The Princess excursion included a tequila infomercial,
The great Mayan Cacao, and a lousy semisubmersible.
Crowded is the one way to describe our stop in Mexico,
With the ports all done, it's to Lauderdale we must go.
Saturday comes all too soon as we sail to the wire,
Late that night comes word of an incinerator fire.
Gladly, soon came the all clear news, so we slept the night away,
Sunday morning and we wishing we were going the other way!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews
Culinary TourFirst was the excellent Mayan Cacao Company. Although it was a little pricey for the bars they tasted good and we bought a few. The was by far the best part of this Princess tour. Then we went to a "Tequileria", this was the equivalent to an infomercial on a shopping network. The prices were inflated compared to what you would pay at the port shops and I don't think many people bought any that day. The semisub with a glass bottom boat was midly enjoyable for the views, but the guide was not worth much of a tip.View All 90 Culinary Tour Reviews
