Regal Princess might be new, she might be big, but she is also unmistakably Princess with décor that is elegant, comforting and not overwhelming and ‘safe’ entertainment that revolves around song and dance over shock value. She boasts all the features that have proved popular on other Princess ships, but with just a few enhancements, rather than countless new traits meant to outdo other ships sailing the high seas. Whether you’re a Princess newbie or an old hand, there’s a lot to love about Regal Princess, from the perfectly cooked steaks in the Crown Grill, the smiling waiters in the SeaView Bar to the non-stop action courtesy of the shops, food outlets and live entertainment in the atrium.

Regal Princess OVERVIEW

If the new Regal Princess were a city, the glass, brass and marble piazza-style atrium would be the hot spot downtown. The atrium, 50 percent larger than on the other Princess Cruises ships, includes street-performer style entertainment, and with tons of shops and food and drink outlets offering up pizza, paninis, pastries, coffee, cocktails and freshly made gelato.

The adults-only Sanctuary is back and better on the Regal Princess with an added retreat pool. This peaceful area is decked out with private cabanas, plush lounge chairs and spa villas designed for peace and for privacy.

Regal Princess’ spa area is another haven for relaxation and its location right off the atrium is unique. Wake up, have breakfast and head right into the Lotus Spa to slip into a comfy white robe and slippers. They even offer couples massage rooms, a feature introduced on the Royal Princess.

The glass-bottomed SeaWalk is newish having debuted on Regal’s sister ship Royal Princess. Located on the top deck with views to the ocean, extending 28 feet beyond the edge of the ship and 16 stories above the calming seas, that exists purely to amaze. A new broadcast studio, Princess Live!, features live talk and game shows, late night comedy and interactive culinary shows.

Good news is you don’t have to spend a fortune to eat well on Regal. Regal Princess’ buffet got a face-lift and offers an evening-only restaurant to one side that alternates between fondues and a crab shack. The pizzas in Alfredo’s are not only freshly cooked but also complimentary. The pub lunches in the Wheelhouse Bar on sea days are another no-cost option and mimic British pub grub. You can be the judge on that endeavour but they were enjoyable nonetheless.
