Ship Facts: Caribbean Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Caribbean Princess Deck Plans
Yikes! Not to our taste - Be Warned!
This was our third Princess cruise and all I can say is that if tattoo's, body piercing and people with no manners or class are your style, then book this one. I certainly can not blame Princess, but apparantly this cruise runs most of the summer, so by the time we got on the ship the entire crew was "fried" from the clientele from previous weeks. My husband appoached the maitre d about changing our dining table and the guy was just completely rude. The pool scene was not appropriate for our 6 year old daughter, half of the "moms" looked like they all shopped at Forever 21 and got their belly's pierced on the way to the ship, we saw a lot of implants, even with the young girls. The parents were worse than the children and were giving their kids drinks and they all overtook the pools. You could not find a lounge chair, they all got up in the morning and saved them all. The dining room was more of the same, most did not respect the dress code and were argumentative with the staff.

Every night the drunks would go up and down the hallways and wake everyone up. One night a group of boys decided to take everyone's room service request off their doors, so no one got their order. We missed our tour because of it.

I finally got to speak with the head of passenger services and they just apologized, there was not much they could do to control the enviornment on the ship. He said when the ship turns around and goes to New England it's a whole different clientele.

I guess this is what you get when you embark in Brooklyn, many of the people looked like they just came in off the subway line. The clientele on the ship ruined the trip for us.
