Ship Facts: Caribbean Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Caribbean Princess Deck Plans
Will pick another cruise line next time

Embarkation was slow; took an hour standing in line. The ship itself has a strange, chopped up design. Takes some time to discover which decks you can walk through from bow to stern. We got a midship balcony cabin port side on the Aloha Deck, which had an outstanding view! The cabin itself was smaller than other cruise ships we've been on. Our cabin steward was slow in responding. We did enjoy the Sanctuary Cabana on deck 17 forward. It was $200.00 a person extra for an all week reserved lounge chair. Go directly there after boarding the ship, as these reserved chairs sell out quickly!

We ate dinner in the Palm Dining Room, which required walking down a flight of stairs to get there. Food Service was slow at the first, until the Dining Room Manager was told and corrected the situation. Quality of the served food was adequate, not great. We had yet another norovirus attack. The Crew handled the incident by serving all food with latex gloves. Still felt like we were cruising on a plague ship! We made all the ports but had to return early to Houston because of fog in the Port of Houston. As stated by others, entertainment was marginal. Waiting line for treadmills, as the other treadmills were not open until 8:00 am. Those were closed as they are situated above occupied cabins!

Deck bars shutdown at 9:30, too early!

Been too spoiled by past cruises with other cruise lines. Probably will not book another Princess cruise.
