Ship Facts: Caribbean Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Caribbean Princess Deck Plans
Excellent Cruise
We just returned from the 7-day Canada/New England cruise, Sept. 22-29, and feel that we need to post a postive review, to counter all the complaining we've read. The Caribbean Princess is a beautiful ship, in great condition. We got such a great deal on an inside cabin, and didn't miss our usual balcony at all. We loved being on deck 5, just steps away from the International Cafe! Our cabin steward did a great job taking care of us. We had late traditional seating, and our waiters were exceptional, as was the food. Every meal was delicious, especially the beef selections, done exactly to our liking. We don't really like the buffet, so on port days (when the MDR is closed for lunch), we got lunch from the IC (love that shrimp salad), or pizza and grilled items from the Trident Grill.

The entertainment was great too, especially Sammy Goldstein in Crooners, and "the Unexpected Boys" and "Piano Man" in Princess Theatre. We liked the 35-minute shows, having our choice of 3 performances a night. We usually got to the theatre 15 min. before a show, and always got good seats.

We enjoyed all the ports. We just explored them on our own. Halifax and Saint John were interesting, and the weather was great. Tendering in Bar Harbor and Newport was fun--a new experience for us! But, the weather was drizzling, so we didn't see as much as we had hoped. We didn't sightsee in Boston, but visited our grandsons instead, for our shortest visit with them ever!

We usually travel in the winter and summer, but enjoyed this cruise so much, we'll probably repeat it! It's a 4 hour drive for us to Brooklyn, and parking was a breeze at the cruise terminal. Sure beats flying!
