We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. The stops were great, used other tours for most of the stops because of what they offered. Princess tours were huge and rushed. The stops were: Guernsey, Cobh, Dublin, Liverpool, Belfast, ... Read more

Princess had some good, some medium and some really bad things. The good was the food in the buffet and the pizza(this coming from a pizza snob New Yorker). The main dining room had poor service and food that was so bland and poor that it ... Read more

Overall we had an excellent experience on the Caribbean Princess. A few things to take note of. Unlike the other cruise lines we have sailed on, the orange juice at breakfast must be poured by the wait staff. It is not available for ... Read more

We always wanted to visit the British Isles and after doing some research, it turned out that Princess had the best itinerary for us. May was the perfect month for us as we didn't want to be there during the heat of the summertime or when ... Read more

public bathrooms were messy, expect to get your own coffee, tea, water in buffet, long lines for anytime dining on certain nights, very disorganized and very little to do. Our table talked about how bad it was, and then someone said they ... Read more

We chose this cruise, as we wished to do a transatlantic sailing, on a large ship. We also liked the ports of call. We stayed on the Baja floor, interior room. The room felt wider than other cruise lines, but it had depressions in the ... Read more

Mainly chose this cruise for the number of sea days, knowing it would be an older crowd. Also chose Princess, having cruised 20+times on a variety of ships and companies. The seas were excellent, the food was the best we have ever ... Read more

We loved the Caribbean Princess trip across the Atlantic. The staff was wonderful, all of them, and as busy as the ship was, with many passengers, they made the experience terrific. Princess is our favorite cruise line and that will not ... Read more

This is our fourth transatlantic and we really enjoy the relaxed sea days. There are still plenty of activities to choose from. Also, it is easier to adjust to the time changes since it is more gradual. The shore excursions to ... Read more

We got a brochure that had an excellent price and a time frame we liked. We also liked that we could fly to Houston non-stop. The tips were paid by Carnival so that was another selling point for us. We also have wanted to see Paris and ... Read more

We took this cruise because it left from Houston (we live in Texas), it was a transatlantic, and it went to ports that are not on the usual transatlantic crossings. Everything was pretty much what one can expect on a 3,000 passenger ship ... Read more

We chose this cruise for two reasons: the port of Houston was drive able for us and we wanted to visit Cartagena, Columbia. We were familiar with the other ports, but enjoyed some anyway. Embarkation and debarkation were relatively easy ... Read more

Having read a couple of negative reviews I feel compelled to balance it, in favour or Princess who, in our opinion were impeccable. There is one recent review that frankly after reading the 6th sub heading I stopped, and it says to me ... Read more
