Caribbean Princess Disappointment

Sail Date: June 2012
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
Embarkation: Southampton

This is my third trip on Princess. What a disappointment! I went to the Baltics last year and had problems there. This year, another.

We were supposed to leave South Hampton on June 7th but the ship did not leave until the 8th at 6:30 at night! The ship had problems which caused the delay. We missed Liverpool, which was very important to me. We were given just seventy-five dollars credit, which hardly makes up for missing Liverpool.

The sheets have holes in them. The towels are frayed. There were only two cakes of soap; fortunately, due to my prior experience, I brought my own soap, which was of great help. The food is commercial and mediocre; if I wanted to eat Sysco I would stay at home.

The service was excellent, in spite of all of the problems. Our waiter, Oleg, at Table 386, was highly solicitous and tried very hard to make us happy, as well as his assistant, Rodger. Cecilia, our steward for the room, was excellent and tried hard to More please.

I am not the only one who complained about the ship. Princess used to be associated with both elegance and reliability. Less
