Bradbury - Answered a Question by Barford (06 Jan 09 12:27)

Have done RCI Many times and Princess only once with my 2 boys, then aged about 6 and 13. The main thing that stood out for me on Princess was lack of food suitable for children other than the usual burgers, pizzas etc. IE potoatos were not always easily available along with veg and something simple like plain meat or chicken breast. So Princess OK if your kids live on burgers and pizza or at the other end of the scale like multicultural dishes with sauces etc. The childrens club did not seem so much fun as RCI, but on the other hand as an adult there were some things I prefered on the Princess line Ie a little more formality. Hope this helps.

Thankyou so much for that! Its pretty much what I thought. I would normally not even try another cruise line after Royal Caribbean... unless we'd won the lottery, but we have been able to get this cruise at an excellent price as the kids are free on Princess this date, and Royal for the same itinerary would cost at least £900 more.... hence the reason for booking! Ive heard the standards are good, so i'm happy to try them for that reason. Thanks again!

We have travelled on both lines. Princess is a little more formal, but not stuffy. Kids clubs were very good. We found the food better on Princess, they were always more than happy to serve food "plain" for our son, or to get him anything he needed. With free child places you will not be dissapointed.
