We booked this 2-week Southern Caribbean cruise to celebrate my husband's milestone birthday with his family and some friends. There were 9 of us total, and all of our cabins were in the same general area which made it easy to visit and ... Read more

I sailed on the Caribbean Princess from January 28 through February 5, 2017. I have sailed most of the major cruise lines, taking approximately 25 cruises. Grand Princess has been my favorite ship for years but Caribbean Princess has just ... Read more

I know the ship is going into dry dock, so I expected the worse. Boy was I wrong. It was a great cruise. The ship looks amazing. The carpets throughout the ship look new, the greens where you play golf looked like we were the first to ... Read more

Embarking went very smooth. We got right into our room and meet Rolando. He did a great job. The ships layout is not the best. A lot of floors do not go all the way around. There was a lot of vibration as we sailed, almost like a shaft was ... Read more

Having completed 7 & 10 day cruises, we opted for a 14 day experience. It was so fabulous. The itinerary was quite diverse - mostly chosen for my parter to dive in new destinations. The ship was a nice size, easy to navigate and well ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. Don't like Western Caribbean as much. Check in was a bit backed up because of a power outage in the port but guess we arrived at the right time with power just coming on again. Once we got ... Read more

We chose Princess because our friends have raved about their many cruises, and we were not disappointed. We flew in from upstate NY and spent a few days in Key Largo, then returned our car to the airport and caught a taxi to the ship. ... Read more

We boarded the ship for a 6 day cruise finding the embarkation and debarkation smooth and super efficient. The food was average to slightly above average for a cruise ship. What stands out above all else was the level of service. It was ... Read more

First of all, the Royal Princess is a very large ship. This didn't bother me. It is decorated beautifully, and in the hallways to the cabins, there are photos sent in by Princess passengers. Our Deck 11 mini-suite felt big, and was ... Read more

We wanted to get away from the cold and this 10 day cruise fit the bill. We had never been to Dominica so there was something to look forward to. The Royal is a very pretty ship, but I really miss the Promenade deck. If you want to ... Read more

First time on the Regal, and it was a mixed trip for the two weeks. Weather was not bad, but due to head winds, very windy. As usual, we had very friendly service from the bartenders to the deck hands, one reason we stay with Princess ... Read more

After 2 weeks on the Regal (Jan 8 and 15 2017), our preference for a bit smaller ships is reinforced. The Regal is lovely and her crew are great. However, the entertainment (ranging from game shows to Trivia to big theatre performances to ... Read more

This was our second time on Regal and our first time on Princess as Elite. Honestly, I don't think the Elite status had anything to do with it, but the service we received on this cruise from virtually every crew/staff member onboard was ... Read more
