Ship Facts: Caribbean Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Caribbean Princess Deck Plans
Great time in New England & Canada
Carribean Princess was again worth sailing with Princess Cruises.

The ship reflected the high standard we were used from previous cruises.

We were a little bid astonished that opening hours of Horizon Court were changed - closing by 24 o clock.

The entertainment programme could have been a little bid better - the piano man was "solala", the dance company seemd a bid tired.

Overall the ship was great, the service friendly, the food delicious, everything clean ...

Regarding the Ports:

- Halifax: don´t book any hop-on/hop-off tour ... the town is small - you can easily walk to every destination! Peggy´s Cove instead is a tour worth!

- Saint John: we had foggy weather - unfortunately - but a hop-on/hop-off is the money worth (gets you to the reversing rapids, ....)

- Bar Harbour: (a tender port) - the greatest Port on our cruise ;-)) ... a great town - with a wonderful surrounding (Acadia National Park) - take either a tour of Acadia Natinoal Park with the free bus provided in town or book a tour with Acadia National Park Tours (which we did)

- Boston: just buy tickets from the port to the city - they take you directly to the city center - you can easily walk "freedom trail" up and down - and have a little time for browsing and shopping at Quincy Market - unfortunately there isn´t much more time for other actions ;-((

- Newport (a tender-port): you have to walk the cliff-walk !! Just take the yellow public bus to the final stop and then enjoy the scenery. Plan approx 3 hours for the complete way - and take good shoes (the path is very "rocky" in some parts)

- New York: there is nothing to add to this great City ,-))
