• Regal Princess Scheduled To Debut As The Second Of Five New Ocean Cruise Ships In 2014

    Princess Cruises' newest ship, the Regal Princess, is scheduled to be the second of five new ocean cruise ships to debut in 2014.

    This past week the Regal Princess finished 5 days of sea trials successfully. The sea trials involved testing the propulsion, steering, navigation systems and numerous safety features of the ship. She then returned to the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy where she has been under construction for over a year. Over the next two weeks she will undergo some finishing touches in preparation for her maiden voyage scheduled from Venice, Italy on May 20, 2014.

    The maiden voyage will be a 7 day Mediterranean cruise to Athens, Greece with stops in the ports of Corfu, Mykonos and an overnight in Istanbul.

      We went on the Carribean Princess, and this cruise was bad. Poor service in the dining room, buffet area, and the bars. The ship is old and it shows, rooms were smaller, along with small twin beds that were rock hard. Thankfully it was only a five day trip. It it very likely we will not cruise Princess again. We have had much better cruises with Carnival and Holland America. Funny thing is that CCL owns all of them.
