  3. Regal Princess
We heard about the Regal Princess, so we decided to experience her for ourselves and we were not disappointed. We left Va. the morning before stopping for an over night in Daytona, before heading to Ft. Lauderdale the next morning. When we arrived at Port Everglades at 12:30pm, parked our car, made our way to the porters who took our luggage without a hitch and we were on our way in. Now this was our first cruise using the Princess Medallion, we had made sure we downloaded all our documentation into the Ocean Ready App before we arrived. We went through security, made our way to the Ocean Ready line and then right up to the Princess rep for check-in. He had us scan our Medallions, gave us a map of the ship and sent us on our way. We were on the ship the quickest we had ever been before! I was in awe as I boarded the Regal. We had been other Princess ships before but something about her just made me feel at home. We made our way to our stateroom, which was an Horizontal Interior Stateroom on Deck 15 the Marina Deck. Being an ocean view/ balcony type of guy, I was truly impressed with the size and the amount of storage available in this stateroom. We used our Medallion to unlock when stepped in front of it, it was automatic! We loved the fact that the door of the stateroom was on the side, it was like entering into a bedroom. I'm now sold on interior staterooms especially like this one! With in a few minutes our room steward Jefferey Quirit came and spoke to us, letting us know if we needed anything to let him know. Jeff was fantastic, he never missed a detail. Our stateroom was immaculate every time we returned. He made sure our every need was met. Everything about the Regal was wonderful: MDR service & food was great; entertainment was the best we had experienced on any ship; the in room entertainment was amazing with Princess On Demand services. Eatery's such as: Alfredo's, Gelato's and Sabatinis are a must! The 24 hour International Cafe cannot be beat! The Medallion Net is a must for anyone trying to stay connected while on board. It is the best internet service we have ever used while at sea and the best value for your money. We took excursions from the ship in St. Thomas and Sint Maarteen, they were wonderful. The only negative I can mention was the scheduling of the activities during the evening hours over lapping with the late dining hours. I think CD need to be more aware of how she scheduling the activities on board and more involved with interaction with the passengers. Her cruise crew was great! Disembarkation was quick and simple since we decided to take our own luggage off the ship having a 16 hour drive home! Over all we loved everything about the ship & the crew, so much we have booked our next cruise on her this coming November!

One of the best cruises ever!

Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin IB M421
We loved our stateroom especially entering from the side by the bed. It had a lot of storage space, our luggage's fit under the bed and we have the hard cover type. The other thing we loved about the horizontal set up was that the bathroom was hidden from sight around the corner near the closet. It has a large desk top along with a lot of storage. We were really impressed, we will book this type again!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Princess Cays
    We disembarked on the second tender to the island so we were able to get us a nice spot out of the direct sun. It was nice to see that the damage from the recent fire was not really visible. We had a fun day in water and sun before heading back around 1pm to the ship. Getting back was just as quick!

    It was awesome, I would highly recommend it! We were the first group there, went up the hill on a ski lift, at the top it has beautiful views of both sides of the island. We were the first group to go down the zip line, it was very exhilarating. After wards we explored the museum and waited for our bus. Our bus driver was wonderful his name was Wellington!

    We had a great time! We boarded a nice vessel called the Sabare fit for about 100 people with only 16 of us. The crew was great. We went a spot near a sunken vessel to snorkel, there weren't too many fish to see but still nice. Then they took us to a private beach near the airport, it was neat watching the planes fly over. After about an hour later we headed back. It was a fun day and worth the money.
