We have previously been on Norwegian (3 times) and were looking to try another cruise line. The Caribbean Princess sailing out of Houston seemed to fit out schedule and price range well, so we signed on. Our first concern was the ... Read more

The Caribbean is not my favorite itinerary but an opportunity to enjoy a week with 18 friends and neighbors plus a really low price brought us back another time. It was also a big plus that we could drive from central Texas to Houston. I ... Read more

We are sophisticated, educated world travelers, accustomed to 5 star accommodations, yet keep coming back to Princess because of its overall excellence, traditions and summer camp spirit, comfort, excursion choices, good food and wine. ... Read more

just got off CB. It is excellent value for a cruise and it is a shame it is not going to be based in Houston after April. Activities were numerous-at times you could not do everything you wanted. Service was excellent-a throwback to days ... Read more

We've cruised Princess before and had an excellent experience. Overall, this cruise wasn't a negative experience, it was just ok. The ship has plenty of bars, restaurants, pools, etc. but it is PACKED with people. In the evening the ... Read more

Are all cruise ships this boring? This was our first cruise and we really did not know what to expect. Before we left, our friends went on and on about all of the on board activities and the food. Our travel agent assured us we would ... Read more

Overall it was an okay cruise. We booked last minute because of the cheap fare. It was an okay cruise, very full. Lots of families, and apparently lots of trouble makers as many people ended up in "jail" and were taken off ... Read more

This review is one of my most difficult. Up front I must say that the cruise wasn’t in any way, shape, or form, bad. But neither was it particularly good. It was, I suppose, boringly average. This was our 19th cruise, but our ... Read more

This cruise was a disaster of epic proportions from the Princess service the only thing that went smoothly was the disembarkation. When we arrived at exactly 12:30 (embarkation time was noon) and reached our cabin the sheets were ... Read more

We left Houston late due to fog and so missed Costa Maya. First night seas were "roly poly" (Captain's words) but the weather cleared once we arrived in Roatan. Due to our delay, we were unable to make Mahogany Bay in Roatan ... Read more

I can't agree more with the review by MyCatMischief in 12/15. I too had issues with pre-cruise ordering, Guest Services, Shore Excursions and Room Services Personnel. Yet, just as MyCatMischief stated, no one seemed to care; each ... Read more

This was supposed to be a review of our Christmas Cruise to Cozumel, Rotan and Belize. As it turned out it will be a review of our 7 day cruise to Cozumel. DW and I (late 40’s) took DS (18) and DD (16). DW and I had a very nice ... Read more

We booked this cruise (for a family of 6 adults) primarily because Princess is leaving Houston for good and it was our last opportunity to go on a Princess cruise from an easily accessible port. However, after taking this cruise, we have ... Read more

On DEC 6, the Cabin C518 on the Caribbean Princess had a generous size balcony. The location was good but I could have been closer to the elevators. The sewer gas odor had been mentioned on CC so I was not surprised when it was quite ... Read more
