Cruise Line: Princess
Ship: Royal Princess
Sailing Date: September 10th, 2001
Itinerary: New England/Canada
The Royal Princess is starting to show her age but still is a very nice ship. All of the cabins on the outside with windows is a definite plus. Cabins were about the same size as on most ships plus had a full size bathtub and shower.
The food in the dining room and in the Lido Cafe was well presented but was not up to the level I have had on previous cruises. The fish dishes were the most disappointing.
The service from everyone on this ship was outstanding and Princess gives help when and where ever needed.
The tour thru New England and Canada was great with a lot of choices for on shore tours. I recommend the walking tours in every port. The passengers were almost to a person WW11 vintage so this might not be a cruise for anyone younger then 50.
While full of energy, it still smacks of college musicals but still fun.
All in all, the cruise was good.
