Your wonderful time is wonderful to hear! We are booked on the Royal for the Holy Land next April. If anyone else has had experiences on the Royal or has information about the Holy Land/Egypt itinerary, I would love to hear about it. We have been on the Regal before and after the refurbish, the Grand for a wonderful Transatlantic, and we leave on the Dawn in about ten days. Many years ago, we also sailed the Fair Princess. I guess with the Royal, we will have sampled about every class of shipthat Princess sails. I was getting a little concerned about the Royal due to her age. If she has been kept up as well as the other Princes ships we have experienced, I'm sure the ship and voyage will be wonderful.
