Caribbean Princess Cruise Review by olderthandirt: Not our Best Cruise but acceptable
Overall Member Rating
Not our Best Cruise but acceptable
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
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
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 More 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. Less

Cabin review: BB Balcony
Our cabin was on the Riviera Deck. Stay away from this deck as it is noisy due to the lido deck being directly above. You get all of the heavy footed folks walking above as well as the typical deck chairs scraping.Read All Balcony (BB) Reviews >>
