Overview: We have sailed several different cruise lines in the past, and when our friends whom are loyal Princess cruisers invited us along, we agreed it would be fun to try a new line. I'm personally surprised by the negative reviews ... Read more

We chose this cruise because the ports were different from other Caribbean cruises we have taken. Embarkation was a bit busy but the process was very smooth and did not take long. Disembarkation was the smoothest I have ever experienced. ... Read more

This was my surprise gift for my husbands 50th birthday so I wanted to do something extra special for him. I even went as far as getting his vacation approved with his boss without my husband knowing. I wanted this to be a birthday he ... Read more

Friends wanted to visit us in FL and then go on a cruise to celebrate their anniversary. They picked this cruise since they had never been to Roatan. Unfortunately, about 4 hours after leaving Ft. Lauderdale, the ship had to turn around ... Read more

We left Sunday afternoon and headed to Roatan (after a day at sea), but there was a medical emergency and we had to head back to Miami after sailing for about 5 hours. The captain told us a fellow passenger had become critically ill and ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary to the ABC islands. We have always cruised with Princess and this cruise did not disappoint! Our balcony stateroom on the Lido deck was convenient and comfortable. Our room steward Roberto did ... Read more

We had never been to the ABC islands but mainly chose this trip because it had 4 sea days. We're both active but in our 60's, so we enjoy just relaxing on the ship more than doing much in the ports. I was a little worried after reading ... Read more

I chose Princess for two reasons - I had never cruised with this line before and the itinerary was what I wanted. - Roatan and Belize especially. I've cruised with Royal Caribbean in the past and enjoyed it. Last September I cruised ... Read more

We booked this 2-week Southern Caribbean cruise to celebrate my husband's milestone birthday with his family and some friends. There were 9 of us total, and all of our cabins were in the same general area which made it easy to visit and ... Read more

I know the ship is going into dry dock, so I expected the worse. Boy was I wrong. It was a great cruise. The ship looks amazing. The carpets throughout the ship look new, the greens where you play golf looked like we were the first to ... Read more

Embarking went very smooth. We got right into our room and meet Rolando. He did a great job. The ships layout is not the best. A lot of floors do not go all the way around. There was a lot of vibration as we sailed, almost like a shaft was ... Read more

We chose Princess because our friends have raved about their many cruises, and we were not disappointed. We flew in from upstate NY and spent a few days in Key Largo, then returned our car to the airport and caught a taxi to the ship. ... Read more

We boarded the ship for a 6 day cruise finding the embarkation and debarkation smooth and super efficient. The food was average to slightly above average for a cruise ship. What stands out above all else was the level of service. It was ... Read more

Background Information We chose this cruise as we had Future Cruise Credits that were expiring, and the itinerary was very appealing. We had only been to Curacao once and Aruba for only a half day. We liked the order of the 2 sea ... Read more

This cruise was selected by group consensus primarily based on port locations and cost. As I never had been on a Princess Cruise, we did not know what to really expect. I have been on other cruises with Carnival (Tropicale, Liberty), ... Read more

I rarely write a bad review but this one is 100% earned. I'm a bit stunned that Princess even allowed this ship to be on the water. The ship is in desperate need of being refurbished. I'm not even sure that's the answer. Princess has ... Read more

WHILE the newest debuting Princess ships certainly have their sparklingly innovative features, it was quite a restorative pleasure sailing on a ship which has become a good familiar friend over the years, the CARIBBEAN PRINCESS. ... Read more
