We chose this cruise because we love cruising. We have sailed with Princess on numerous occasions, and knew pretty much what to expect. We found the staff to be friendly and attentive, especially in the Club Class dining area and Crown ... Read more

This was our first time sailing on Princess. Our family had sailed with them many times and have great stories of their times so when they asked us to join them we thought why not and booked a Suite on Deck 9 forward. Overall the ... Read more

I have been on several cruise lines. Overall, I think Princess is one of the better ones . However,there are drawbacks that I will be discussing: 1.Food: Overall the food was good. The pastry and deserts were particularly good. ... Read more

we were given a great discount on this cruise because our first Princess cruise was a mechanical disaster, 50% off the value of our last cruise towards this one. I noticed several restaurant and dining room staff bickering among themselves ... Read more

Background Information We chose this cruise as we had Future Cruise Credits that were expiring, and the itinerary was very appealing. We had only been to Curacao once and Aruba for only a half day. We liked the order of the 2 sea ... Read more

This cruise was selected by group consensus primarily based on port locations and cost. As I never had been on a Princess Cruise, we did not know what to really expect. I have been on other cruises with Carnival (Tropicale, Liberty), ... Read more

I rarely write a bad review but this one is 100% earned. I'm a bit stunned that Princess even allowed this ship to be on the water. The ship is in desperate need of being refurbished. I'm not even sure that's the answer. Princess has ... Read more

This is a beautiful ship for space and relaxation. We love the Piazza for dancing, just would like to see more music time. We saw some familiar faces from previous cruises which is always fun. That goes for other passengers and ... Read more

We have taken many cruises and used a number of different cruise lines. We chose this ship because it worked well with a direct flight from our home city, where you can never count on good flying weather. We like to book our flight ... Read more

We have travelled on many cruises over the past three decades, once favouring Princess but more recently the smaller, upscale lines Azamara Club and Crystal. We decided to try the big ship experience for a change, thus the Regal, and ... Read more

This review underscores the need to have backup travel plans, especially when cruising in the winter. When our Plans A and B to fly to FLL went out the window, we moved on to Plan C—a 12-hour drive. Although driving was a slightly ... Read more

Back home now after a fabulous cruise and a far better experience than our Alaskan Star Princess experience last June, where we were disappointed with the overall service and very much so by the food. Here, I have to say the food from ... Read more

Why yes...the weather was not the greatest. Yes, we did have to skip the Dominican Republic due to gale force winds and the sun hid behind the clouds many days. However, the Commodore chose a longer, but calmer path for us to head to St. ... Read more

We've been on other cruises, but this was our first Caribbean. We went with a group of friends, for a total of eight. The Regal Princess is huge, but we were a bit familiar with the layout as we'd been on the sister ship, the Royal ... Read more

We sailed the Royal last year, and decided to give the Regal a try. If you like the Royal, you'll like the Regal, and conversely, if you don't like the Royal, you won't like the Regal, as the ships are identical except for one thing-on the ... Read more

I was with a group of Physician friends and I did not make the choice of Princess.. I am a vegetarian and the ship did not cater to special diet needs.. The fruits served were unripe and lacking in quality.. Bananas,melons and pine apple ... Read more

WHILE the newest debuting Princess ships certainly have their sparklingly innovative features, it was quite a restorative pleasure sailing on a ship which has become a good familiar friend over the years, the CARIBBEAN PRINCESS. ... Read more

Went with two hosts and 108 other single people to celebrate the new year. Liked the smooth sailings for sleeping. Was on the 8th deck on this ship and I was on the 9th deck a couple years ago on the Celebrity Silhouette which made ... Read more

Both Embarkation and Disembarkation were quick and painless. Ship was beautiful, atrium was fantastic. Very scenic for photographs. 10/10 Speaking of photographs, the unlimited photo package $199 is the way to go, what a steal. ... Read more

The cruise was chosen by my partner, so I had little say in the destination or cruise line. We sailed on the Regal Princess...an impressive, huge ship with many amenities and MANY people. This is NOT the ship to cruise if you are looking ... Read more

It was our 6th holiday saillng with Princess and we've loved them all. Although Princess is known to draw an older crowed, the Holiday sailings tend to be more inter-generational. We have 2 children, 13 and 10, and they had lots of fun. ... Read more

We cruise for the holidays each year. This is our second trip on the Caribbean Princess. The last time they were sending her in for a refurbishing after the holiday cruise. They were leaving staff off at ports along the way, and closed and ... Read more

We are spoiled because of our past cruises with Crystal, Regent, Oceania, etc. Princess was quite disappointing. To recap: When we arrived in Fort Lauderdale, I called the Cambria Suites for the shuttle transfer to the hotel the night ... Read more
