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

Compared to our first sailing with Princess, this ship did a fine job with service. The Caribbean Princess was also in better condition. On the Grand Princess (sailed 2011), the stewards and dining room staff were so overworked they ... Read more

This was our sixth cruise and my parents first. We took our two children, ages 5 and 7 as well. We drove from the Dallas area and my parents drove from San Antonio. We all stayed at the Best Western Suites close to the port since ... Read more

This was my first Princess cruise. Compared to my other cruises all on Carnival I rated this one average. I was surprised at how much ship movement I could feel, bouncing from wall to wall on occasion. The staff was overall very helpful ... Read more

We are experienced cruisers, but this is the first time we have ever cruised with Princess. 29 members of our extended family joined us over Spring Break to help celebrate our parents' 60th wedding anniversary. The staff was very helpful ... Read more

This was my 5th cruise, but my first cruise with Princess. I have sailed with Disney and with Carnival for my other cruises. I absolutely love cruising and being out on the ocean, and try to look at the brighter side of things when things ... Read more

First of all we have 9 cruises with Carnival and was very excited about going on a b2b on Princess. So, many of our comparisons were based on our experiences with Carnival. We have always gotten a balcony cabin so booked sidexside with our ... Read more

We booked the March 6, 2016 Eastern Caribbean cruise to accommodate a family member's vacation. We flew to Houston one day before and settled in a hotel near Clear Lake, 15 minutes away from the Houston Bayport Cruise Terminal. We took a ... Read more

First, a caveat. I assume a lot of people like Princess. After two cruises, we do not. We are Celebrity Elite status cruisers and find Princess no match for Celebrity. So, maybe my comments will help others who are not sure what line to go ... Read more

My wife and I recently returned from a short Princess cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale. Unfortunately, this was the most unenjoyable experience that we have had while cruising with Princess, or any other line. Our disappointment started when ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we needed to get away . What we didn't realize was that Houston has expensive taxis the cruise port was 100 dollars by taxi from the airport. We figured it was just the cost of traveling. We had a good time ... Read more

Our embarkation port was Houston (Bayport). It's about 60 to 90 minutes depending on traffic, from the airport to cruise terminal. We drive our car car and park on site for about $100/wk. safe gated area. Embarkation is very efficient. ... Read more

I'll start with the bad to get it out of the way. There were only 2 things that I felt were bad on this cruise. The first and foremost being the smell of sewage on some areas of the deck. I am assuming they had some kind of ventilation ... Read more

My husband and I sailed for our anniversary last week out of Houston on the Caribbean Princess. It was our third cruise, second on Princess. This trip was NOTHING like our experience on the Tahitian Princess 13 years ago. We decided to ... Read more

Travel from Hobby airport to Kemah a day early, close to terminal took over 2 hours and $80+ on I45. This was twice what we expected at 3pm on a Saturday. Traffic was bumper to bumper the whole way. Perhaps the cab driver took advantage ... Read more

We booked this cruise about 8 weeks before sailing to get away from the rainy Pacific Northwest and once again Princess delivered a great holiday. We got lucky and did not have to deal with fog or high winds in the Houston port area so ... Read more

We can't say enough good things about this cruise on the Caribbean Princess! All of the crew were genuinely happy to help if we had questions (where to find Coral Dining Room, for example). Embarkation was a breeze, compared to other ... Read more

We chose this cruise, because there were ports we had not visited. The captain spoke only broken English and it was impossible to understand him. He also seemed like he did not want to meet the passengers, and tried to remain aloof ... 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
