Would an RCL, Carnival guy like Princess?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)
Odd. I've done dozens of Princess sailaways and, except when there was rain, there's always been dancing on deck: the Wobble, the Cuban Shuffle, and of course the Electric Slide and Y-M-C-A. Wobble baby wobble baby wobble baby wobble...

 

I've only been on the one Princess Cruise (Regal).

 

There was no Wobble, Cubid Shuffle, etc. on that Sailaway. Matter of fact, I was happy because they had "Line Dancing Classes". I went to those, and that was the only time I heard these songs and was able to Line

 

Regal Princess Sailaway was kind of lame with Kool and the Gang "Celebrate" song as the highlight.

 

This didn't make it a bad Sailaway. It's the clientele and I get it.

 

I'm no expert on the Princess brand, however, the OP wants to know some of the differences from Carnival/RCCL and this is one that I experienced.

 

I'm on the Carribean Princess, May 26th sailing. Can't wait!:D

Basically I like a decent room, a nice balcony, decent food, an occasional decent show. Carnival meets this criteria, and is the most affordable. I love RCLs big ships. Have also enjoyed Holland America. I love the ocean and sometimes beaches. I hate when they make me get off the ship at the end!

Have never been on Princess. Lots of Royal Caribbean and Carnival experience. Will I like Princess?

 

Yes, I think you will.

 

I'm a Royal Caribbean guy as well. We sailed Princess to Mexico and in the Mediterranean within the last two years.

 

We really enjoyed Princess! No, they don't have water slides or zip lines but they have great entertainment, great food and they stay out of your way and let you enjoy the cruise. They do have the obligatory art auctions, but they don't blast the info in your cabin.

 

We liked the laid back atmosphere yet the ships were very classy and the service was great. The ships are great as well.

 

Would we sail with them again? Absolutely. We made a future cruise deposit on our last cruise!

I think you will have a great time on Princess. While their main shows are not always our favorite, I think they have some of the better entertainment in the smaller venues around the ship.

 

I think Princess is a very affordable option, even when compared to Carnival.

 

Book it, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

I’m 29 my wife is 26 and we have booked princess. Everything I’ve read here is right up our alley. We like to have fun, but want to unwind and enjoy the sights and slightly more upscale, not be around a bunch of drunk partiers.

My feelings exactly -- we cruised several other lines before and now are confirmed Princess customers! Enjoy your cruise!

I think Celebrity is a better option- have been on Princess and was very disappointed. It is what I would call "plain Vanilla" Shows not good-food blah. Not a fan. Celebrity has only one announcement per day and limited smoking- Casino is non-smoking also.
