Caribbean Princess repositioning cruise

Sail Date: November 2012
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)

Cruise was to leave Brooklyn NY on Halloween however hurricane Sandy changed all that. Ship could not get into Brooklyn and was 2 days late and arrived in Manhattan instead. We thought Princess did the best they could considering the circumstances, however, we were slightly disappointed with the fact that we only visited Grand Turk and Aruba. Would have preferred to skip Grand Turk and go to any of the other ports originally listed such as St. Maarten, or San Juan.

Food on new menus we thought was okay. We are not fish eaters so we did visit the buffet for several dinners. Service in dining room was very good as always.

Thought the balcony space was quite small, our room size was adequate.

Entertainment was just okay. Many of the production shows have been the same for the last few years.

Thought cruise staff was very helpful and pleasant.

We asked for early walk-off on day of disembarkation and received a time of 10:30 AM. We immediately More changed that with the purser's desk as that time was totally unacceptable when our car was right there waiting for us. Less

This island is only 10 miles in length. Has a very nice beach right where the ship docks.
