Default royal princess in may

We're "doing" the Med. on the Royal in May/June - have read lots of postings, but none seem to be about this ship - anyone have comments? How about shore excursions recommendations - we'll be stopping in Sicily, Malta, Casablanca, Gibraltar??? We'll try on our own adventures in a couple of ports, probably Barcelona & Monte Carlo. Appreciate any comments.....

Royal Princess is a wonderful ship. She's old, launched in 1984, but then she was far ahead of her time. Princess takes wonderful care of her old girls and I've heard nothing but raves about her. I sailed her on her second voyage back in 1984 and absolutely loved the ship. She's smalleer, 40,000. All cabins are outside, lots have verandah cabins, all have a bathtub and fairly large bathrooms. The food seems to be better on the small Princess ships, better than it is on the larger ones. You will get to know many of the crew, which isone of the most enjoyable parts of sailing a smaller ship. I can't tell you anything about the itinerary though.

I cannot imagine how you would be disappointed in this classy lady. I have sailed on the Royal Princess two times (May 1997 and June 1998) and am planning on sailing her again this August 15.

She is a perfect size ship, well maintained with great size bathrooms (tub and shower with removeable shower head). All outside cabins. The crew and staff are attentive.

Our of 40 cruises so far (15 on Princess) the Royal Princess is my favorite ship!
