Ship Facts: Caribbean Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Caribbean Princess Deck Plans
1st Timer - Enjoyed Crusing
Very impressed with the staff, cleanliness, appointments & comfort of our cruise. We stayed in an oceanview between two lifeboats. Balcony for sure next cruise. Rough seas through late 1st night of the cruise & rain. Even on this 3100 passenger ship, a number of people were ill. Not I.

Passage to San Juan was overcast & a bit rainy. Needed the break from the sun anyhow.

Passage to Grand Turk was a breeze.

Captain & crew did a pretty good job at weather avoidance on our homebound passage. Seas were moderate & on a number of occasions we could see weather happening port & starboard. Insofar as the shipboard happenings:

1. Food & Service - Our late seating dining tablemates were fun & conversations were lively. Mehalla was our server, and she was terrific. Food was very good to excellent. Exceptions were frogs legs (kind of boring sauce) & a pretty tough NY Strip Steak that was also over-cooked. Buffets were varied & themed meals on buffet were pretty cool.

2. Bars - Martini's & beer were NOT 'watered-down'. Heard some wining about fruity drinks. Tenders were polite, only the Martini bar had real personality as far as I could glean.

3. Pools - Spent most free time at or near pools. Hot tubs were pretty inconsistent on jet operation, It's a scramble to get lounge chairs.

4. Shows/events - saw Troy Thirdgills for the last 2/3's of his act. Verrry funny. Like I said above, we were poolside for much of the trip.
