Royal Princess Mexico Cruise Vlog – Day 1 Start To Finish





Special thanks to Princess Cruises for hosting our family on this Medallion Class cruise.

Hey Cruisers,
If you’ve ever wondered what day one of a Medallion Class Princess cruise is like, you’re going to want to watch this video. We’ve essentially captured every event from day 1 of our Royal Princess Mexican Riviera cruise, and squeezed it down into just under 30 minutes.

We start the day in our pre-cruise hotel, the Crowne Plaza in San Pedro, then head to port for embarkation. Embarkation with Princess’s Ocean Medallion is incredibly smooth, and we were stunned by how fast we were onboard. From there, the fun begins, and we visit Royal Princess’ adults only Sanctuary and Retreat Pool, and tour the incredible Lotus Spa.

A common routine for many on embarkation day is to head immediately to the buffet for lunch, but because of crowds, this can often be an exasperating experience. We’ll go over a few different lunch options on Royal Princess, and share our day 1 lunch choice with you.

Kids club check-in is a snap on Royal Princess, and we’ll explain just how easy it is in this video. We’ll also give you a look at our mini suite balcony stateroom on Royal Princess, and show you how I unpack at hyper speed. After a painless muster, it’s time for a balcony sunset, and Royal Princess’ absolutely off the hook sail away party. Then it’s time for dinner in Royal Princess’ Concerto dining room. After dinner, we play a few Ocean Medallion games and then embark on some epic shopping. Our visit to Effy Jewelry was super fun. The staff there is incredibly nice, and I had an absolute blast trying stuff on.
Thanks for following along! Stay tuned for our visits to Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, and Puerto Vallarta.
See you on the high seas!

  5. We are going on Royal Princess in February to Cabo. We went on Grand Princess last August out of San Francisco to Alaska for 10 days. embarkation process was very fast , on board in less than 10 min, no medallion then. We are looking forward to going on Royal Princess. We loved going to Alfredos pizza on Grand Princess, ate there several times and enjoyed the Cafe International as well. Their iced lattes are amazing , we took advantage of the coffee cards then. Thanks for sharing video.

  15. We were on this same cruise at the beginning of November — really enjoyed revisiting our first day with you! You have so much energy — I can't wait to tune in to the rest of your cruise! Looks like you had a lot of fun at Sail Away — so much fun to see familiar faces like Matt O (the Cruise Director) and Fortuna Luck (the super bubbly Bingo hostess with the mostess!)!

  21. What category of stateroom is this?

    Reply
  22. Is anyone seeing the same thing I'm seeing in cruise prices? I thought Wave Season was supposed to be a time for great deals on cruises, or is it just a marketing gimmick from the industry? The prices I'm seeing are substantially higher than they were this past fall.

  23. Aww thanks cruiseshipTV for all the cruise videos love them

  24. I've been waiting for this series to start and it's finally here! We have had a couple of mini suites on Regal and our balconies have never been that big! That is a fabulous room!

  28. Such an amazing embarkation day you guys had! I really liked how beautiful the ship and the weather were for you. I was also really impressed with the editing Mr. CruiseTipsTV. Thank you so much for sharing! I can't wait for the next video.

  29. I’m so glad you are pointing out the dining that is open on embarkation day. There is no reason anyone should slop the hogs in the buffet on embarkation.

  30. How do you get a free drink with the medallion is it a higher status thing?

    Reply
  31. I never realized how little you are until this video! Really enjoyed this video. We're going on our first princess Cruise this year. Everything looks like such a step up over the carnival experience we're used to. *excited!!!*

    Reply
  32. I have been waiting with anticipation for this video. I love all of your videos but was extra excited to see this one as my husband and I are going on the Regal Princess in October, our first princess cruise.

    Reply
  33. I thought I might want to board early, but wouldn't be any elite status, although I will be slightly disabled, with a walker and a folding scooter. Could I get onboard relatively early, if I showed up early?

    Also, I thought your cabin steward seemed really nice and trustworthy. If we need something heated in a microwave, can they do this? I'd need a microwavable compress heated, about once a day, and tip, of course.

    One more health-related question: do any of the pools have water as deep as 6 feet or more, for deep water exercise?

  34. Wow, we were on the Royal Princess back in May and didn't even try Alfredo's. Clearly we should have.

    Reply
  35. We got on this ship the week after thanksgiving and had a fantastic time. The medallion worked great. This ship had very fun and talented entertainment. Alfredos was awesome. We went for lunch on embarkation day and went two more times while on the cruise. I want to go back!

  36. I went on 13 day cruise on Royal Princess to England, Ireland, Scotland and France. Loved every minute of it. I thought the International Cafe was wonderful. And the Piazza is incredible. Thanks for bringing back some wonderful memories!
