We have friends that took this ship (think it's called Regal Empress) on a New England cruise several yrs ago. It's a pretty old ship but they had a good time. But I don't think you can compare it to the new ships now.
We are booked on the Regal Princess 12-15 we have cruised 8 times with Princess and never been disapointed. The Regal is a pretty new ship built in the 90s and refurbished in 2000 so should be pretty nice. It is not the same as the Regal Empress that is a different cruise line.You can be pretty safe with any Princess ship. If you are not going before we get back I'll write and let you know what I think. There are some steals on cruising prices now. If you want to go now is the time.
