Regal Princess - December 2016

I joined Regal Princess in Fort Lauderdale on December 4th for a seven day cruise. She's almost identical to the Royal but only one year old. Like the Royal, the ship was very comfortable with great staff, service and food. I was pleased to be able to perform a magnetic compass adjustment on departure from Montego Bay, Jamiaca.

The bridges on these ships are so large that they look like a new house waiting for furniture.
