Princess Cruises Royal Princess by IanJ Royal Princess World Cruise January 20, 2009

This was a 107 day world cruise, a fantastic itinerary which included many spectacular stops including the Suez canal, the Great Wall of China, Easter island, the Pyramids, Angkor Wat, the Great Barrier reef and many others, we loved every minute. I could happily have stayed on for another 107 days (if it was free) though maybe not, as I'd miss my kids and animals.

Most memorable things about the ship would be the staff almost without exception they were the best of any ship we've been on and the cleanliness and upkeep of the ship was without equal. Passengers were 90 percent 60's and older but there were quite a few 50's and even two younger couples with small kids.

The cabin was fairly spacious, though as you might expect for this length of cruise, still a bit short on storage space. On a more positive note, I could get wireless internet in the cabin, set-up was relatively easy.

Food was variable, but even toward the end we were still enjoying every meal. Entertainment was also variable with something to suit all tastes.

If I had any tips, it would be that next time I would arrange more independent tours, the Princess tours were greatly overpriced and not half as enjoyable as those we arranged ourselves.
