The ship is nice, crew were good with the exception of stateroom steward who after getting his additional tip was not please so he was just ugly the last day to deal with. The biggest issue is the entertainment or lack of it. Yes they have a few cute game shows and they had a comedian one night that did the same old cruise ship jokes. But other than that if you did not want to sit and listen to music or dance there was nothing. In the good Princess days there were all kinds of things, comedians hypnosis, dueling pianos, etc etc and more than one at once. Now there is one per cruise comedian and all the rest is singing and dancing for 60 and over. It’s become a close second to Holland America we’re if you get to the dining room under your own steam you have accomplished something. Everywhere you went people complained about poor quality and lack of entertainment. Wake up Princess while others are stepping it up you are going down hill quickly Read Less

First, this is our 2nd cruise with the Regal. Boarding was awesome, however recommend not to pre order your medallion,wait until you get to terminal. They are still working out the kinks with this process. For example,we ordered our medallion 3 wks before our cruise, however received another passengers medallion and someone else got ours. The Technolgy on the ship is amazing and blows all other cruise lines away. It’s so cool because their are cool apps you can download like ocean ready, ocean compass and play ocean. We used play ocean because of all the Triva games and new ones every day. We stayed in a balcony, D332 it was ok however we had to look down on a life boat, not cool. Our steward was Denchi he did and awesome job! Cabin was always clean, only wish Princes would install USB ports near the beds and a outlet in the bathroom. Our most memorable moment regarding entertainment was the group Beatlemania they were amazing, sounded and looked just like the Beatles. We didn’t go to any other shows,most were the Princes dancers which have seen before and the comedians according some of the passengers were only so so. We did however like the The Voice of the Ocean it was very similar to the real Voice. Regarding meals, we love that Princes still does not charge with Room service unlike other cruise lines. We used this service often. The only complaint would have to be the Horizon Buffett. It appeared to be lacking variety and served same food every morning and the lunches were also lacking. The main issue was they would take the lunch Buffett food down by 2:00 to prepare for dinner, so we just went to Alfredo’s Pizza which is free and amazing. We ate at the Crown Grill their steaks were amazing, however I think the choices on their menus are over tops, meaning just a salad would be nice, not all this fancy food . Can’t say enough about the pastry chef amazing desserts with every meal. The dining room meals were ok,again kind of over the top..keep it simple. We bought the beverage package, so totally worth it, unlike other cruise lines you get top shelf without any extra cost. Love the activities, so nice to see Oz who came from another cruise line. We played lots of Triva and met new friends, I wish they would have the Triva not in Princes Live no tables and can’t get your chairs in a circle. Wasn’t crazy about the Cruise Director never saw her except for special events. Love Alfredios Pizza especially Mica our sweet waitress. And omg the Lady Luck lady who hosted Bingo spoke to the passengers like we were kindergarten kids, awful and annoying. Our excursions to Princes Cay was the best, rented a 9.00 raft and enjoyed relaxing. Try to take the first boat off so you can get a good spot and a raft. Paid for a excursion at St Thomas, we took the St John Champagne tour it was second time going, however it was different they hired a new girl and she get pouring champagne mixed with rum punch, not smart... Dissembarking was quite easy we used Princes Transfer to the airport it cost but worth it. Because we opt to come one day earl, we rented a car best idea ever. Alamo rental has a car rental at the port you can drop your car off and a shuttle will take you to the port.. One last note during our cruise a small plane crashed with 2 men overboard, the Regal was the closest ship, Captain and crew did a fanstatic job with the rescue, both men were saved because of their expertise and speed.

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! Read Less

We are experienced cruisers, approaching 450 days at sea. We've been on the Regal several times, including this past January (Western Caribbean) and this was the Eastern Caribbean. Both embarkation and disembarkation were a breeze. We were in our cabin to leave our carry ons by 11:15. Our selected time to leave was 8 am. our color/group was called at 7:55. When we got into the terminal to claim our luggage, both pieces were together so no lengthy searching. First the excitement. While having lunch on the way from Princess Cay to St. Thomas, the ship's announcement system blurted out "man overboard". About 10 minutes later, the Captain came on and said we should have noted that we had turned around and were racing along. The ship had a call from the Coast Guard to pick up two fliers that had to ditch their plane. All's well that ends well. They were in a liferaft and fortunately, the seas were very calm, making the rescue easy. This was our second "excitement cruise" as in 2008, a passenger jumped overboard the ship we were on. Fortunately, we were heading for our home port and a trailing ship was able to pick him up. He was drunk, got into an argument with his wife, and decided to teach her a lesson (MORON!!) Anyway, other than the small balconies on the Regal, the cruise couldn't have been better. The Medallion system is fully operational...you no longer get a cruise card. As you approach your cabin, the door unlocks. If you purchase internet time, you can use any device anywhere on the ship. If you want to make a purchase in any of the stores or play in the casino, you just touch the medallion to the appropriate spot. And there are areas in the ship where you can play different games or trivia at no cost. The entertainment was great. We had seen the three production shows before, but wanted to see them again. Bravo and Born to Dance are not to be missed. The comedian was on for two different nights. So outstanding that he received a standing ovation at the end of each show. And the Beatlemanics put on a great foot stomping show. One night in the theater and another late evening show in the Piazza. Breakfast and lunch in the buffet was fine. You can have omelets made to order for breakfast and lunch included a number of ethnic foods in addition to the normal fare The ship was spotless....the crew warm and friendly. As we first approached our cabin, our steward met us...and he had already memorized our name. Back to the food. My wife is allergic to gluten, dairy, egg yolks, and tomato. Not to worry. For breakfast and lunch, all she had to do was ask for a chef and he would go around and tell her what she could or couldn't eat. For dinner....the first night on Princess (in our experience) always has prime rib and baked potato. We ask for a head waiter who then brings the menu for the following night and takes her order. The first night, the only dessert she can have is the sorbet (different flavor every night), but succeeding nights, the chefs come up with desserts especially tailored for her...and they were all delicious. We've been to St. Tommy and St. Marty a number of times, so she browses the jewelry and I twiddle my thumbs and people watch. One other negative comment....the slots in the casino are really tight, no matter which ship or cruise line. Disney doesn't have a casino, so that's one line we'll never take. Read Less

We chose this cruise for the itinerary. We were blown away by Princess from beginning to end. The pre-boarding check in and medallion program were amazing. It made embarkation and debarkation easy and fast. The medallion made purchases on the ship much easier, as well as serving as our bluetooth key to our stateroom. Our cabin was spacious and had lots of storage space for our clothes and things. We did not feel as though we were living out of our suitcases. All the staff was courteous and helpful, but our cabin steward was a step beyond. Our room had been tidied several times a day and always had clean towels. He put up balloons and a banner for my birthday, which happened to coincide with our trip. Even the artwork in the hallways was exceptional. We did not eat in the formal dining room, as our dinner hour was later than we expected and all the entertainment was going on by then. This was not the fault of the cruise line, but ours. There was just too much to do on the ship, so we ate at the buffet on our own schedule. But the food on the buffet was amazing as well. Not only a huge variety of international cuisine, but beautiful sculptures made by carving the watermelons and appealing displays of fruits, vegetables, and even spices and teas. The kitchen definitely accommodated all diets. We ordered room service for a couple of snacks and found the menu substantial, and the food was delivered quickly and courteously. The on-stage entertainment of Broadway quality shows, bands, orchestras, and comedians was first rate - as good as any I've seen. There were also programmed activities like the usual trivia and bar entertainment, but many unhosted activities around the ship as well. The sports deck was always busy with games and sports, and the fitness center and spa always had something going on, sometimes around the ship. The pool deck doubled as a movie theater under the stars with a giant screen in front, as well as a platform for the dancing fountain shows (like the ones at the Bellagio in Vegas). The shore excursions desk helped us choose excursions where we were most likely to see the things we wanted, but they offered a self-help option for tnose who knew what they wanted and chose to skip the line altogether. They took care of us on the excursions - such as a ship photographer with us to capture pictures of our fun - and got everyone where they needed to go. We noticed a kids' fun section, but as our kids are grown we did not need it. We found the spa and fitness centers well stocked with equipment and amenities, but did not use the personal trainers. One thing we noticed throughout the ship was that everyone seemed genuinely happy to work there. From the cabin stewards who freshened our room several times a day to the food servers singing to themselves, the staff seemed genuinely happy, which made our experience even better. In the hospitality industry everyone is usually pleasant and helpful, but the Regal Princess crew and staff are exceptional. The ship was a floating 5 star hotel and restaurant. We will definitely be sailing with them again and have highly recommended them to our friends who cruise. Read Less

My husband & I went on this cruise after having to cancel a cruise in December due to a death in the family. We love the Caribbean and we go every year. This was our 15th Princess cruise and now we are Elite with all the benefits that includes! The Regal Princess is a Beautiful ship - our first time on Regal - but we have been on the Royal five times before so we knew our way around. The Entertainment -- the Sail Away Party was great with beautiful dancers and great music until they played this stupid spin the wheel game! They spin the wheel and go out into the audience and find people wearing jeans or sunglasses or whatever the wheel lands on -- stupid! Stick with the dancing! We went to see the comedian one night - he was really funny the first night - not so much on the second time! We were more entertained by Robb the bartender at Outriggers Bar! He is great! Our only disappointment was the food in the dining room! The steaks were tough, the veal was tough, they have taken many things off the menu like escargot and have changed the recipes on other dishes that were delicious before like the scallops! Why change a good thing? I feel like they are making cut backs and they are doing it with the food! We still had plenty to eat -- but one of the BIG things that we look forward to on a cruise is the FOOD! We did go to Crown Grill and that was delicious! The black & blue french onion soup and the goat cheese salad are my favorites there! Would I go again? Of course! Tomorrow!!! Just please hear me Princess - we just became Elite - we don't want to change cruise lines now! Please make your cut backs elsewhere and go back to the good quality food and service in the dining room! Read Less

First time on Regal. Mini-suite was very nice. Extra room was appreciated as well as the bathtub. Cabin steward was perfect. He kept the cabin in top order. Medallion worked as they advertise. Helpful to find my better half anywhere in the ship. Food was great as well as service staff. Thought about. Specialty restaurant but main dining food was just fine. Good portions and still hot. Deserts were very nice and were wonderful. Sitting areas offer a wide choice from outside to quiet, music or entertainment were your choice. One of the nicest ships I have sailed on. Wife enjoyed the spa but too much hard sell for products. Photographers did not block walk ways. Cruise had perfect weather for outside activities While on this cruise the ship was requested to do a rescue of plane crash victims. We were tright there and saw the professional actions and responses of departments. Goggle Regal Princess Rescue Read Less

We have been on 20 cruises( mostly on Celebrity) and always in a Suite. Princess Regal was our first on Princess Cruise Lines. This was our best experience yet, by far! The ship docks in Berth 2 in Ft. Lauderdale and arrives at 5:30 am. Because of this, the ship is cleared out very early and able to turn around quickly. We arrived at 9:45 am. We were the only ones at luggage drop off. Walked over to terminal to find only about 30 people inside on line waiting for security screening to open. Five minutes later we were though security and walking to an area where our medallions were scanned. Breezed on up to a lounge to have coffee, tea and snacks until we boarded 20 minutes later. (This lounge is a suite/elite cruiser perk) On the ship at 10:20 and eating at the International Cafe. Rooms were ready as well. So efficient! Medallion opens the cabin door as you approach with your photo on a screen. Muster drill was easy as jackets are no longer required. Ate at Crown Grill first night, and it was delicious. A very special dining experience. The shows were very entertaining, but wait for the 10 o'clock. Seats fill up very early for the 8 pm show. In cabin movies were all the Academy Award Winners and nominees. What a wonderful surprise to have such great movies. They are also shown nightly on the big screen on deck and in the afternoon in the Vista Lounge. Main dining room (Concerto) was easy to navigate for anytime dining. Jelena was the greatest waitress! Suites have a separate section called Club Class which has an enhanced menu. Ate lobster 4 times in one week. So indulgent. Service staff was wonderful. Our suite had 2 separate rooms, a double balcony, a very large bathroom and many closets. Our Concierge Lounge was right across the hall from R 605 (our suite) and featured sandwiches, drinks, sweets and a dedicated staff person to help you with your needs. Also a lending library. Room steward, James, was so efficient and nice to us. He was the best ever. Sabatini's offered a suite br.eakfast which was delicious and elegant . Roland made us feel so welcome each morning. Everything on this ship is so well organized and thought out. They really have it all figured out, unlike so many other cruise lines. Disembark was so easy . Everyone was well informed as to the procedure. We walked off with our luggage at 6:28 am, breezed through customs(no forms) and in a cab by 6:40 going to the airport. Already booked our next cruise Feb of next year on the Sky Princess. Can't wait. Princess Regal sets the standard for all others to follow! Read Less

We chose this cruise because it fit within our schedule and we needed to get away for some rest and relaxation. We had been on the Regal Princess before and had enjoyed this ship immensely. This time we were pleasantly surprised with the improvement in the selection and preparation of the food. The American bacon was greatly welcomed but make sure it is crispy. Service was excellent and always with a smile. Entertainment was also stepped up from our previous cruise. Embarkation had one hiccup in that the shuttle took some time to get to us at the airport. Otherwise, getting on and off the ship was about as good as it gets. Getting to the theater from dinner seems to be a rush to get a good seat but this is true no matter what the cruise ship. More signage is needed to advertise the fact that life-jackets aren't needed at the life-boat drill—a card in the cabin would do it if prominently displayed. Read Less

We were just looking for a getaway (we live in Florida so weather not an issue). We had sailed on Princess before - and they had the best food of the "mainline" cruise companies - so that was our reason for picking the Regal Princess (and this part did not disappoint). We went all out and booked a full suite - and there, my friends, lies the problem. Very, very disappointed with Princess suite amenities - if we are going to pay almost $4000 for a one-week cruise, we expect to get amenities commensurate with that. First, the suite passenger venue (concierge lounge) wasn't worth going to - it was so small I would be embarrassed if I were Princess plus this is a pretty large ship and we were at the front and the lounge was as far aft as you can get and 3 decks up). Other than a one time minibar set up, we had to pay for everything: Every other ship we have been on over the past 4 years provides complimentary Wi-Fi to suite guests - but not Princess (150 complimentary minutes on one device - so either me or my wife was out of luck - so we didn't even bother). To me, the crowning insult was having to pay for a quiet spot on the upper decks. We both love to relax on a cruise so look for a quiet shady area to read, nap, etc. There aren't any such places on this ship unless you want to pay extra ($80/day for a cabana in the Retreat or a similar amount for a lounge chair in the Sanctuary). Our cabin was spacious - but the bedroom was probably 3 times the "living" area - seems to us they could have given you a little more room for when you are awake! Clearly Princess is trying to appeal to a younger audience - no quiet background music anywhere. And so much for their policy of not holding lounge chairs (supposedly in unoccupied for 30 minutes, the crew would remove belongings ha ha ha) I would go for a cup of coffee at 7:00 a.m. and most of the chairs already had stuff on them - but no people! And that goes for the minimal number "shady" chairs that were available. Enough - Princess is off our list!!! Read Less
