This is my first review. I am a first time British cruiser, 36 years old professional chap, who was, as I suspect many are, a little bemused by the number of alarmingly poor reviews on this site. It does make me wonder why some people go ... Read more

I'm not sure where to begin... the food or the constant Sewer smell? My husband and I have cruised to Alaska 2 years ago with Celebrity Solstice and being on this ship was hell compared to our last trip. I don't typically write reviews ... Read more

This was our third time on a Princess Cruise ship and our 21st cruise so far. The Coral Princess was a bit disappointing because of its “tired” look and feel in about 60% of the ship. The only reason we choose Princess for ... Read more

Choose Princess as recommendation from our travel agent. Boarding and exiting ship was well organized. The ship is large and while they give you a map it took several days to get around comfortably. We had a mini suite and it was very ... Read more

This was our first cruise, so it was all new to us. Having read previous reviews of this ship we did wonder if adverse comments were true. More of that later. We are an early 60s British couple recently retired, travelling with a ... Read more

We had a good time. Was it our best cruise? No I expected to see the ship decorated for the holidays, it wasn't until the last 3 days. The photographers were short handed and the back drops were far and few between and in poor shape they ... Read more

The Caribbean Princess is a large ship but easy to navigate. The food was above average for cruise fare, both in the Horizon Court and the main dining rooms. The biggest complaint is the lack of availablde AnyTime Dining seating. Rarely ... Read more

Anytime dining DOES NOT mean "anytime dining". It means you cannot enter Donatello's until AFTER 7:45pm. Bernini, the traditional dining room is the ONLY anytime dining along with the Lido's Horizon Buffet. We received a ... Read more
