Another Princess fan, YES!

I was recently on Island Princess and loved the ship; but it was not a "happy ship". Interesting how two identical ships can have very different atmospheres. I'm going on Island Princess again next April, and hopefully they will have solved whatever was bothering them. If not, I'll give Coral Princess a try. Oh, I'm sure I'll try Coral either way.

My favorite was the Regal Princess, which was my most recent cruise. I loved its size, and its "bygone era" features such as large bathrooms, two medicine cabinets, low passenger to ship size ratio, and elegant dining room. I especially loved the very top deck dome, where the casino and loads of comfortable chairs ringing the 180 degrees of windows were located. I had read that the dome had poor ventilation and was smoky, but that was never the case on this sailing. We had very few smokers on board (lots of us Californians, I guess), and that was never an issue.

I'm so glad you enjoyed Regal Princess so much; and I'm especially glad they seem to have resolved the ventilation issue in the Dome--that was my only complaint about Regal Princess.

I'm going to try to sail on her again sometime under the P&O banner. I've had the opportunity to visit several P&O ships over the years and have been very impressed by what I have seen.

Sailed 7 Ships. Mariner of the Seas is my favorite. I'm sailing her again Sept 23rd. She's big, beautiful and is 100% handicap accessible. Hallways wider. Cabins slightly larger and I missed some of the bars last trip. So big I could not find them all. lol

Happy Sailing everyone

Well so far I had only been on 3 cruises:
1 in the adventure of the seas and 2 times on the carnival Destiny,
Well I have to say carnival destiny…
You know many of you had travel maybe on 3 or even 50 cruises but I believe that the first one is always important is that cruise ship who let you in the world of cruising and in my case it was the honeymoon I will always remember
Is that experience, to be happily married with a wonderful woman and discovered this life style that makes the Carnival Destiny my favorite, so see you in the summer to say "buen viaje" and thank you carnival Destiny for this experience…

I have only sailed Carnival...but of all the classes they sail....I like the Spirit class best. Of the Spirit class, we liked the Miracle the best.

Although the Holiday is my personal favorite, I concur that the Spirit class is the best design of the new builds. We've been on the Pride and the Legend.

I think the Paradise (when it was brand new and smokefree) was our favorite - on it 3 times. Then the spirit - 5 times. The rest seem to run together and I remember the cruise experience rather than the ship. But we have y been on only Carnival( 20 times )and NCL 2.

This seems to be an old post, but I love the topic. I am fascinated by the way people choose their favorite ship, and I have to agree that your first cruise ship should always have a special place in your heart. For me it was Royal Caribbean's Adventure of the Seas. For my wife it was the Carnival Tropicale back in the late 80's.

I think we can all agree that it would be difficult to not have a great time on any modern day cruise ship. I am so addicted I can't stand it. I just wish I had more time off to cruise.

Maybe this post will revive this topic!

The Statendam followed by the Veendam. I am a HAL loyalist and have never tried another line.
