Cruising with Princess was a pretty effortless exercise as long as you are tech savvvy as most information in these Covid times is required to be entered on an app.
Arriving at the Port of Southampton the boarding process was easy with a Covid test taking place first and then waiting for results to be sent by text to our mobile phone. Then on board for a British Isles cruise. The use of the app certainly confused and flummoxed some guests as I had to help at least four parties who had not followed the instructions on the sheet that has been left in the cabin. The app is called Medallian class and doesn’t always work and can be slow. It is no wonder that some of the older less tech savvy passengers had a little trouble but don’t let this put you off an otherwise lovely cruise ship with marvellously attentive staff with great service and Covid protection on board.

We were on board Regal Princess for one week sailing to and from Southampton with ports of call at Liverpool, Belfast and Grenoch.

As Covid restrictions relax it was possible to do your own thing in port and not have to take the Princess excursions which inevitably will always be more expensive than doing our own thing.

Service on board was good although some staff had issues getting drink and food orders right – a little training of staff may be required but we didn’t complain as they have not been working for 18 months and cruising has only just restarted recently.

Entertainment was good with a mixtures of activities from lectures, sports, bingo, live music, theate etc every night (generally two shows). We did find it hard to find somewhere on board that was quiet to relax as live music from the main atrium area is exremely loud and we were not the only guest to comment on this.

Lectures are not of the same standard of enrichment lectures you find onboard Cunard ships but food was good, the cabin exceptionally clean and well maintained.
