Ship Facts: Caribbean Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Caribbean Princess Deck Plans
A Welcome Winter's Respite--The Caribbean Princess Feb.6-20
As we boarded the Caribbean Princess for 2 weeks in San Juan on Feb. 06, we immediately felt at home.The thing that immediately strikes us is the Staff's ability to always warmly welcome us, smiling and respectful-even though just hours ago, they said good bye to over 3000 of last weeks (some quite nasty)vacationers. We quickly found our cabin, an outside cabin with balcony, Compact, but a perfect place to sleep and prepare for the fun ahead.

We had 2 glorious weeks --to some great ports including; St.Thomas, Virgin Gorda, Antigua, St. Lucia, Dominica, Grenada, Barbados, San Juan, Curacao, and Aruba. Only 2 sea days on this trip--exactly the itinerary we wanted!!We have been to all of these islands, so we chose to do our own thing in each island, rather than partake in the ship's Tours.

The food as always, was consistently good and plentiful, from the buffets to the Dining Rooms--we enjoyed it all.The Crown Grill is one of our favorite places to eat--A minimal cover charge for an exquisite meal with impeccable service. Sabatini's is also worth the cover charge, it's an evening of seemingly endless, delicious courses.Unfortunately, Princess is not immune to the ship-wide cutbacks happening across the cruise Industry, and it is beginning to be noticed in some of their food selections.

There is always something happening throughout the days on the ship, Thanks to the Cruise Director"Neil" and his staff. Everything from at sea lectures, Art Auctions, pool games, exercise classes, Bingo, outdoor movies, shopping, gambling, or just lounging with a cocktail, on a chair. We also enjoyed a late afternoon cappuccino in the Atrium, while watching dancers, musicians, jugglers etc. perform.

The evenings Entertainment was always varied, with some incredible shows happening throughout the Ship.I have previously seen all of the Princess review Shows, Caliente, Piano Man etc..They are really not our cup of tea, but people seem to enjoy them.We particularly liked the comedians, and magician. Sorry, but I have forgotten your names--but your shows had us in stitches.We absolutely loved the hypnotist--Fernandez. We saw his shows several times, including a hilarious "Midnight" adult show. For us, his performances were the icing on ship's entertainment package !!!

As the Cruise industry keeps expanding, with thousands of cabins up for grabs every week, the prices have dramatically decreased. 25 years ago, the passengers were an entirely different breed. Now, everyone can afford to cruise--which is rapidly changing the face of Cruising. Undeniably, all cruise lines have to adjust to this change and big adjustments to "Budgets" will no doubt continue.All in all, we received great value for our dollar, we had an incredible holiday experience, met some wonderful people and are planning our next Cruise already.Thank you to all the hardworking Princess Staff for your commitment to our "Cruising Pleasure"
