We chose this cruise because we wanted to try the Princess cruise line, to check out a newer ship, and because we had never been to the Eastern Caribbean. I found this to be a beautiful ship. I was impressed mostly with two things: 1. ... Read more

After a disappointing cruise last year on the Getaway. We splurged on the Haven but like the ship it was very crowded. Chair hogs in the Haven pool were a big turn off. NCL is not for us - too crowded and nickel & dimed) we just wanted ... Read more

I loved The Caribbean Princess so I thought I couldn't go wrong with Princess. Boy, was I wrong. This ship is like an experiment gone wrong. Take all the bad ideas on all my previous cruises and put them all together, and I found it in one ... Read more

Loved the ship although the food was a huge disappointment and the cruise directing staff lacked enthusiasm. Also seemed like there were less entertainment options compared to other cruises I've been on. Getting off the ship was crazy ... Read more

We chose this cruise for two reasons: the port of Houston was drive able for us and we wanted to visit Cartagena, Columbia. We were familiar with the other ports, but enjoyed some anyway. Embarkation and debarkation were relatively easy ... Read more

This was my 9th Princess cruise and the first time I've sailed on the Royal Class ships. I concur with other reviewers that the three glaring things were the lack of midship stairs (it's a huge ship and really needs them), the shrimpy ... Read more
