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

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

The best parts were the food and the entertainment. Between the International Cafe (open 24 hrs) and the many other places to eat, we always had a wide variety of well-prepared food. As far as the entertainment, there was always something ... 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

Invited by a friend. Ship was nice, cabin was small, food was good. We did local people tours which were very good. Entertainment was very good. I was very disappointed with some lectures with solicitation such as expensive inner ... Read more

This was a Thanksgiving cruise which we took because it was also my birthday. The ship is old but in good shape & very clean. But that's where it ends. The food was hit or miss, but thank God, we had good tablemates. We always take ... Read more

This review is on the cruise itself and not the ports. I have been on many cruises and this was the worst ever. We know that princess caters to the older crowd but with 4 days at sea on Thanksgiving week you would think that there would ... Read more

When sailing on the Caribbean Princess we have found Crooners is the best place to make friends with passengers and the crew. We have made more friends in this location than any place on board. We also have always enjoyed the back end of ... Read more

Having cruised many times before (over 20) I must say that the food on this cruise was the best I have ever had. Each night there were many varied dishes and all were tasty. We had differently prepared seafood's, vegetarian, pasta and ... Read more
