Worse cruise line I've ever experienced: Caribbean Princess Cruise Review by Hellenp
Overall Member Rating
Worse cruise line I've ever experienced
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Customer service was a joke. The long line of disgruntled passengers was near constant each time we approached the desk to try to resolve our room issue. Apparently we were not the only ones unhappy with the cruise line or the accommodations. The cruise line denied any responsibility and claimed to be completely full so moving to another room was not an option.
The food was alright although the wait times were long for the buffet and dining rooms. The ship appeared to be rather old and not well maintained. The entertainment was lack luster. More The ship advertised a particular show but instead replaced it with a rather boring mentalist. The cruise director did nothing to encourage passengers to participate in any activities, unlike Carnival where you always know what is going on and when/where to go if you want to participate. The sea days were long and boring with little to fill the time. We were fortunate that we met another couple on board to play board games with.
I left several items on board the ship and contacted customer service to report them missing when I returned home. I received a canned letter stating the items were not found, even though one of the fellow passengers emailed me that they had found the missing item and turned it into guest services for me to claim. Obviously, the guest services staff kept it for themselves.
Overall, the experience with Princess was a big disappointment. We will never cruise with them again. Less
Cabin review: A204
Horrible room. Very noisy as it backed up to a warehouse or prep area with loud carts being wheeled around and banged around all though the night. It sounded like someone was beating on drums.
Carnival Convert! (LONG review...
An experience of a lifetime!
Best Vacation EVER!!!
Ship probably due for a refurb...
