My husband and I are sailing on the Royal Princess on April 12th. I was wondering if anyone has cruised this ship from Ft. Lauderdale to the Panama Canal and if so how was the ship and the trip. This will be our 16th cruise but first for the Canal and first on the Royal Princess. We done the Grand before and loved this line. I hope this ship is just as great. Also, is anyone else cruising at this time? We will be cruising with three other friends. Really looking forward to our trip. We love cruising.
Just got off the Royal Princess last week. Took a 12 day cruise from Manaus, Brazil to Ft. Lauderdale. Was my first time on her and at this time I would have to say she is one of my favorite ships. Size is just the right size for me and she only carriers 1200 people and never seems crowded. The food, crew are great and the ride is much better than the larger ships. I went through the canal on a different cruise line, but you will love the trip and also the Royal Princess. Have a great cruise.
We did the Panama cruise on the Royal a few years back. Stayed on for 21 days. Our trip was from San Juan to Acapulco return and loved every minute of it. The ship is wonderful. Have done 20 + cruises and still think fondly of the Royal.
