Ship Facts: Caribbean Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Caribbean Princess Deck Plans
Caribbean Princess British Isles Tour
The British Isles Tour included 9 stops and 2 days at sea. This tour included Paris, 3 Scotland, 3 Ireland, Liverpool and Guernsay Island. This cruise required considerable walking to enjoy the 9 ports. Princess was the best cruise I've taken as far as getting you on and off the ship, and the cruise staff for information and problems was excellent.

We were lucky the weather was good. We took the bus thru Normandy ( a very scenic area) to Paris. In the 5 hours we spent in Paris, we walked up the main street Aves de Champ to Arch de Triumph, had a hard time walking to Eiffel Tower, took a taxi to Notre Dame and walked to the Luv. Not a long time in Paris, but well worth it.

Next stop Edinburgh. Then to Inverness, where local bus took us on a scenic drive to Loch Ness for 15 Euros. Then to Glasgow an interesting city and luck to see the annual Scottish Tattoo with all the bagpipes and military. Next Belfast, took a taxi to the Falls wall and taxi driver took us into the Protestant and Catholic areas where residents lived with a lot of slogans. Very interesting. Signed the peacewall. Took a local bus ride, a prosperous and attractive city.

Liverpool was the best city we visited. We went to the Beatle's Cavern club, a Beatle performer (took us to the stage they performed at) and referred us to the bar they hung out in which still is the same it was 50 years ago. The old buildings were the best we saw on the tour. Then we went to Dublin which is very fast paced. Cork was a a pleasant Irish town and was easier to get around in than Dublin. In Guernsey, a taxi took us on a tour which included Nazi fortifications, and Neolithic tombs going back 6 thousand years.

We don't travel a lot, so this cruise allowed us to see a good view of Paris, Scotland, Ireland, Liverpool, & flew into London instead of making a separate vacation for each country. Was very satisfied with Princess buffet which had a good variety of food almost all day.
