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

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

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

Went with two hosts and 108 other single people to celebrate the new year. Liked the smooth sailings for sleeping. Was on the 8th deck on this ship and I was on the 9th deck a couple years ago on the Celebrity Silhouette which made ... Read more

The wife and I found a great deal on the December 17th sailing of the Caribbean Princess for 13 days. It was a combination Western/Eastern Caribbean itinerary. Getting there one day early from the west coast, we were exhausted. The only ... Read more

This was our sixth cruise on Princess and as usual it did not disappoint. This is our favorite cruise line since the food is always good and the staff very friendly and helpful, which is the case on the Caribbean Princess. Embarkation ... Read more
