Having sailed most of the mainstream cruise lines, this was our first Princess cruise. We pick our cruises by itinerary so we have no distinct loyalty to any one cruise line. Princess had been "hyped" to us before as being the best so my ... Read more

Booked this cruise because I liked the itinerary. Caribbean Princess was docked in San Juan. I highly recommend sailing out of San Juan; because you are already within the Caribbean, you are able to hit more ports and have less days at ... Read more

This ship caters more to the young adult/adult crowd. Although it touts youth programs it really does not have much to attract a 10 year old. No climbing wall, super slide, mini golf. The best you get is a small kiddie pool and the two ... Read more

I use a wheelchair, but I can walk some, just not long distances. Embarkation was a breeze, and we could go right to our cabins immediately instead of waiting in public areas for a couple of hours. That was a plus. Also, we could eat ... Read more

This cruise was labeled as a 14 night Southern Caribbean but in reality it was 2 separate 7 night cruises visiting 10 ports (not including Puerto Rico). We've spent time sailing around the Caribbean in a 50 ft sailboat a few times over the ... Read more

I was very disappointed in the Caribbean Princess. Knowing that Princess is a 5 star cruise line had my expectations set pretty high and I was very let down. So Royal Caribbean remains my favorite cruise line. First let me tell you some ... Read more
