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

We cruise for the holidays each year. This is our second trip on the Caribbean Princess. The last time they were sending her in for a refurbishing after the holiday cruise. They were leaving staff off at ports along the way, and closed and ... Read more

We have an Princess Alaskan cruise planned for 2017 & decided this would be a good way to try out Princess for the first time. We have travelled different cruise lines & had never done this itinerary. The first problem was when we ... 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

This was our third Princess cruise. The ship is in need of refurbishment and I understand it it is going into dry dock next Spring. Having really enjoyed the food quality and variety on Princess before, we were sorely disappointed on this ... Read more

We have cruised with Princess 14 times now and each time it has been a wonderful relaxing experience. They make embarkation and disembarkation hassle free and it always goes smoothly. We have been on the Caribbean Princess before and ... Read more

We went to Western Caribbean since we hadn't done those ports before. Been to eastern and southern. Something for everyone on Western - beaches, history (Mayan ruins), good on-ship entertainment, relaxation! We went to Roatan, Belize ... Read more

In August I cruised to Alaska on the Ruby Princess with family and really liked the layout of the ship and all of the folks that work so hard each day to make the experience great. I saw a great deal on a cruise to the Caribbean and talked ... Read more

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

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
