Where: Western Caribbean Style: Traditional Tea Selection: 3 pre-selected loose leaf teas Teatimes: Daily 3-4 pm; Royal Afternoon Tea – Day 6, 3:30 pm Reservations: Required for Royal Afternoon Tea, otherwise walk-ins welcome Contact: 800-774-6237 Cost: $20 Royal Afternoon Tea ($10 without champagne); Daily afternoon tea included with your stay Destination Tea Tips: While Princess’ daily afternoon tea is a less formal affair open to all, seating is limited for this Royal Afternoon Tea event, and luckily we just happened to pass the sign-up sheet upon entering the ship. If you sail with Princess and want to experience this full afternoon tea, we recommend calling dining services to ask if your ship has a special tea that requires a reservation.
Destination Tea Notes: Our first experience onboard a Princess cruise didn’t highly recommend the daily afternoon tea to us, but we couldn’t help but see about this max-30-guest Royal Afternoon Tea on Regal Princess. We were right to investigate! We find the additional fee reasonable ($10 if you skip the champagne), and ourselves delighted by the improvements in the meal. At this royal tea, the teas are properly decanted, loose-leaf and varied, and the scrumptious scones and desserts tempt one not to overindulge. Now tea at sea feels as every afternoon tea should: a treat!
