Spotlight on: The Royal Princess from Princess Cruise Lines

Over the holidays, I had the opportunity to tour the Royal Princess from Princess Cruise Lines. This is one of the newest ships from Princess. I was very impressed. 

The atrium and Piazza make a stunning impression as you board the ship. I was impressed at the number of restaurants right there:

International Cafe offers Mexican torta and paninis. 

Alfredo's makes pizzas right in front of you. 

Ocean Terrace Seafood is one of the best raw bar/sushi bars I've seen in 25 cruises. 

Speaking of food, the buffet was incredible: Japanese, Chinese, Indian, Mediterranean, Italian, American homestyle. You can find anything from wings to carved beef to salad. Plus there's a separate pastry shop with all the desserts! 

I was also really impressed with the Spa and deck. The Spa has an incredible couples massage suite with private steam room, tub, couch and massage tables. The deck features two separate upgraded areas: the Retreat and the Sanctuary. 

The Retreat is an adults - only pool with cabanas available for rent. 

The Sanctuary is also adults-only, but even more luxurious. You can purchase a day pass or rent a private VIP cabana. Plus there's Spa Cabanas so you can enjoy your massage right there. 

The Sea View Deck offers a walk way that juts out over the ocean. The floor has glass cut out so you can stare straight down. One thing to note is that on that side of the ship - the cabin balconies are not private. Because the walkway juts out - you can see onto everyone's balcony below. 

Overall, I was very impressed with the ship and highly recommend it. If you are interested in setting sail on Princess, please contact me at
