We had been waiting for over a year to take this cruise and we were very excited about it. We got to the port of Los Angeles by 1pm and it was empty. Everybody had already boarded the Pacific Princess aka "The Love Boat", and ... 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

This was the official 50th anniversary cruise for Princess. They called it a throw-back but I didn't anything like what cruising was even 30 years ago. I was a little disappointed but still had a great time and was glad I had booked this ... Read more

I have only taken three cruises in the past though I've traveled extensively by air and auto. I went on this cruise alone (for privacy and paid the premium), and had a single inside stateroom, as part of a group of 30-40 people ... 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

The service on there was really good nothing too much trouble but be careful with reception as some of them do not speak good English or understand. The best person to speak with is Bernard who comes from Canada. We have never had such ... Read more

I won't mention the name of my first cruise, but it was so bad that it took 25 years before I was willing to cruise again. This ship was chosen because we were going with Lonny Lynn Orchestra on a big band theme cruise. I have read the ... Read more

Embarkation- Horrendous is not an overstatement. You would think that the Port Everglades Princess staff had never had to check-in customers where visas or other special country entry docs were required. We arrived at the port about ... Read more
