Ship Facts: Caribbean Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Caribbean Princess Deck Plans
Caribbean Princess Effected by Hurricane Sandy
This was the last Caribbean Princess cruise leaving New York ports for any southern cruising from November 2012 through the 2013 to perhaps and hopefully returning in 2014. That and the original itnerary is why I booked this one cruise for 2012.

Although our cruise itinerary was shortened from 10 to 8 days due to the effects of hurricane Sandy, we departed from the best New york port, Pier 8 Manhattan.

A most enjoyable cruise although we lost three desired port stops for which we booked this cruise considering our return required the additional expense and inconvenience of flying home instead of a preferred home port return.

It was a wonderful cruise due to the fine professionalism of the staff and crew in general, and most pointedly the efforts and expertise of the chefs and food service personnel and the waiters, assistant waiters,and headwaiters of the Coral and Island Dinning Rooms. And not to forget the pleasure of Prego Pizza, Trident Grill, and the International Cafe.

The entertainers and musicians added to the pleasure.

Last but not least were our fellow cruisers for they make cruising a pleasure exposing us to their personalities, views, occupations, and imparting their experiences of cruising all illuminating and indirectly educational.

No doubts about our liking Caribbean Princess for the 5th time, although if Princess had the superior ocean view stateroom and general design of the Royal Caribbean "Brilliance of the Sea" they would have 5 Star cruising.
