Regal Princess, which debuted in spring 2014, combines sophistication in design with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. If you’re weighing your cruise ship choices and not sure where to start, we’ve got 10 reasons you might consider Regal Princess. And, in honour of St. Valentine, one of them is the ship’s connection with the original “Love Boat.”
Regal Princess might just be the perfect ship for you if:
1. You like to walk on the edge. Regal Princess has a glass-bottomed walkway that projects over the side of the ship on the pool deck. The line calls this the SeaWalk, and it’s a great spot to visit if you want to take on your fear of heights. Take a moment to snap a picture of the view straight down from 16 decks high.
2. You’ve been looking for an excellent buffet. The buffet on Regal Princess — collectively comprising Horizon Court, the more casual Horizon Bistro and over-the-top sweet spot, The Pastry Shop — is enormous, and the selection is incredible. The food tastes fresh and offers variety for any diet — vegetarian, gluten-free, low-sodium, etc.
3. Chocolate is your thing. Princess partnered with chocolatier Norman Love, and his dessert creations are available on menus throughout the ship. (My favourite is his incredible take on tiramisu.) Not enough chocolate? You can get a chocolate massage in the ship’s Lotus Spa.
