Ship Facts: Caribbean Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Caribbean Princess Deck Plans
Not our Best Cruise but acceptable
We live close enough to drive to the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal. We stayed just across in New jersey on Friday night. Our embarkation was easy and well organized.

We received an upgrade to our Balcony and ended up on Deck 14 (Riviera)just below the Pizza Station. This deck is noisy from all of the activity on the lido deck and we would not choose this on our own.

The bed was configured as a queen so where the two twins come together was a hump with sagging in the middle. While I normally like a flat pillow our was too flat

with lumps.

Deck 14 was added during a refurb according to a discussion I had with some members of the crew. Our cabin was the smallest we have had on our five cruises. The addition of cabins really tasked the common areas especially on a Fall New England Cruise. The Caribbean Princess does not have a sliding room for the pool area so most of the passengers were inside.

Seating at the shows in the Theater were difficult to find and we missed several due to our seating time of 5:45. When we finished and tried to get a seat there was standing room only.

Our cabin Attendant was good as wasd our Dining room waiter and assistant.

We would recommend this cruise for other folks but choose cabin with care and maybe earlier in the season when weather is warmer to relieve the congestion in the common areas.
