Ship Facts: Caribbean Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Caribbean Princess Deck Plans
Above Par
We have sailed with the Captain and Cruise Director before and both did the same high quality job as before. Captain Mancuso made some decisions for our safety and comfort that did result in the Port of Dublin stop being shortened, but that was fine with us. Better safe and enjoying a smoother sail than have the entire day in one of the Ports. Nothing is guaranteed when sailing the world's oceans.

Dan Styne had the same enormous amounts of energy and this was evident in his staff's approach to all the activities. Sea days are what we prefer and they were so full of activities that I did not have time to use all my minutes of computer time. Up too early and to tired in the late evening. Having three shows each evening made it possible to see all the entertainment and not have to rush through supper. We really like this change from the two shows per evening.

Embarkation went very smoothly once the doors were opened to the port embarkation building. The line from the port doors was very long, but once it started moving we were in our cabin in less than 30 min. Disembarkation was again done in a very efficient manner and we had our luggage gathered and were through Customs in less than 30 min. from our assigned gathering time on board.

We did not eat in the Speciality Rest. this cruise so cannot comment on those. The Horizon Court had plenty to chose from for Breakfast and was different each day. The Dining Rooms at anytime seating were great with no waiting and the waiters honored my one small special request on the three occasions I put it forth. I still have not figured out how the waite staff can remember not only a special request but ones room number a week or so later in the cruise?

Our room steward did a great job and was Johnny-on-the-spot with any requests we made, he also was quick to learn our familiar names and use them.(Not the formal names on the registration)

All in all we really enjoyed our time on board the Caribbean Princess.
