FIRST TIME WAS A CHARM!
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
The ports we planned on visiting were Puerto Rico, Grand Turk, St. Thomas and Bermuda; unfortunately the weather wasn't in our favor and we weren't able to stop in Bermuda; a little disappointing because a few of us were never in Bermuda, but we enjoyed ourselves on the ship nevertheless.
I would recommend the Caribbean Princess to anyone - and departing from Brooklyn was a plus. Less
Cabin review: Int
For those of you who have not experienced cruising (much like myself), the interior rooms are very small and have no windows, so that can be a little confusing when you want to know what the weather is, do you need sunblock, wear a bathing suit, etc. I would recommend any other room but an interior for this reason. The showers are also very small but I understand that's typical in most rooms. It was quiet, never hearing any outside noise -
Port and Shore Excursions
When arriving back on 6/2, again, it took approximately 12 minutes to get off the ship, get our luggage (which was easy to find, large easy-to-read signs indicating the color-coding of your section), and then literally one minute walking through Customs.
I would definitely recommend the Brooklyn Port!
GREAT CHOICE for Southern Cari...
