First I can't find a review of the Royal Princess, all of the other ships are rated but not the Royal. We are doing the 10 day Panama Canal trip on February 11th and would love to hear from anyone who has done this trip and also anyone who sailed aboard the Royal Princess that could give us some information about the ship. Is she showing her age, how are the mini suites, the food, the service, etc. Thanks Becky & Jim Woodbury, Ct.
First off, let me say that I have been on 45 cruises and the Royal Princess, on which I have sailed twice, is my favorite ship. I have sailed her in the Med and the Baltic. It has been several years since I have been on her though.
She is an elegant, well layed out ship. All public rooms have outside views except the theatre. All cabins are outside. Never been in a mini-suite, but did 'peek' into one and found it very nice.
She is kept in good shape by a great crew and staff.
