We selected this back to back following the December 3rd deep Netherland Antilles cruise to extend our vacation. The crew was friendly. The ship was lovely. The food was great and had good variety. The ports...same old but we still ... Read more

This is my 19th Princess cruise and there were many things to like about the cruise. As an Elite member, I do appreciate, use and enjoy the perks associated with that level of Captains Circle membership. I also particularly love the ... Read more

First of all, the progressive embarkation was the best we have ever experienced and we have been on many cruises over the years. There were no long lines. Everything went very smoothly and our luggage was delivered to our cabin almost at ... Read more

because I'm a platinum member and I liked the itinerary. The food in all dining rooms and buffet was cold. I had a steak in the island room and it was lukewarm. Even the soups were cold. It was impossible to find a lounge chair if ... Read more

The Island Princess is for us a large ship. While we are much happier and comfortable on a ship with no more than 1500 passengers, Island princess did have adequate space for quiet lounging or reading. The crowded areas were the dining ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it would only mean a one flight to return home. The embarking of the ship was very poor. San Pedro did not have its act together. The ship itself was okay, though we were greeted with Christmas music. Gladly ... Read more

I had work on this cruise, which is how my family ended up on this particular one. But we are now hooked on Princess, and we would recommend this cruise to others. The islands we visited were incredible, the cruise ship was fun with an ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise, 4th time on the Caribbean Princess. What stood out this time was the staff, food and entertainment. From our cabin steward, buffet staff (constantly inquiring if we needed anything and refilling beverages) ... Read more

We booked our cruise to Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao late in October, about six weeks beforehand. We stayed one night in the Embassy Suites on 17th Street in Fort Lauderdale. We always like to fly down a day early just in case there are any ... Read more

Everything was perfect from the moment we boarded until we departed 14 days later. Our mini-suite, the steward, the Coral dining room, the Casino and the staff. All were great and made our cruise very special. Our only problem was that ... Read more

This was the perfect itinerary for us - 2 sea days, 3 ports, 2 sea days - and we got some much need rest and had a lot of fun. We used Princess Air but didn't book the transfer (which we will do next time). The theory was the cab was ... Read more

We enjoyed our trip to the southern carribean. Princess Caribbean ship was nice- older ship style but modernized. We paid extra for larger balcony room. Storage and closet space was good. Showers very small and I am not a very large ... Read more

We booked this cruise with Princess for our 50th wedding anniversary We chose Caribbean Princess because it is a 5-star rated ship and we wanted this curse to be something truly special. The Waldorf Astoria in New York city is rated a ... Read more

Chose this cruise because it was short enough...8 days, but 3 days were week-end, so meant only 5 days off work on vacation. Plus it offered 4 Sea days and those are always so relaxing with an opportunity to enjoy all the on-board ... Read more

Primarily for the timing and ports. We visited 3 ports we had never been to, Aruba, Curaçao and Bonaire. The ports have become less important to us after many cruises but these were clean and we docked just steps from town in each ... Read more

We decided on this cruise because of the itinerary. The ports we stopped at were welcoming and beautiful. I wish the same could be said about our overall experience on the boat. The main problem was bad customer service throughout the ... Read more

Took the 8 day cruise to the ABC islands. We were very satisfied. Princess does a nice job. Importantly we didn't feel badgered by announcements about sales that is a problem on other lines. Ship-Very well maintained and ... Read more

Embarkation was a bit of a traffic jam but to be expected since everyone is anxious to get on board and enjoy the festivities of the ship. After an enjoyable lunch in the dining room (instead of the buffet) arrived at our room to discover ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the SE Asia destinations which sounded interesting. Embarkation was handled reasonably well, considering the number of people they have to handle. We've only done one cruise before on Dawn Princess, so only ... Read more

Prior to this cruise on Princess we had recently cruised to Alaska on Celebrity Cruise Lines. The difference between Celebrity and Princess was like the difference between night and day. Celebrity won hands down. The Princess ship's ... Read more

Because this was our first cruise (we are seniors) we decided to do a short (6 night) cruise as a "test". The crew was very attentive, the food was good (not spectacular), our obstructed view cabin was an adequate size. We ... Read more
