Went with a group. Time with group was great. The new medallion tool and app caused me way to much stress. Only worked to open door and charge purchases on ship. Absolutely no internet, email or phone use. Missed a prepaid land trip as I didn’t get notice. My email and credit were hacked upon boarding. Couldn’t address while onboard, even on their computers. Cruises are to be stress free! We were ...

We always sailed Princess. I was excited for this sunny adventure. Princess truly let us down in their overbooking, understaffing and purchasing the lowest quality food. I don’t know what to say as I am normally raving about this line! We even hold stock in their owning company, Carnival and have done so for nearly a decade. No more. Time to sell as this line has dropped service standards as ...

My companion is a blonde female but after the medallion app switched our identities and ultimately refused to accept any of our information we arrived at the pier and received our medallions for our B2B and walked on the ship. No one looked at my passport, vaccine proof, negative COVID test or my medallion photo which was of a woman four years younger than me. The Princess medallion app still ...

My 1st pandemic era cruise in two years. If you were elite you may miss pillow chocolates, free internet minutes AND your commend loyalty credit. I love being loyal when the feeling is mutual - wish Princess was able to feel the same way. The cruise was as expected. Everything was up to par. The crew was happy and attentive. Our Xmas sailing was limited to around 1100 passengers so every guest got ...

Our Caribbean cruise was really a test cruise to see how safe, easy and fun cruising still can be. As far as safety, the Caribbean Princess had health protocols in place. Masks were worn in indoor venues but not in the outdoor parts of the ship. We wore our masks to the table for dining and then could remove them. The ship was 40% capacity which was quite lovely and made it much easier for ...

The food was amazing and the staff was so pleasant and helpful. Never a dull moment! In the buffet they serve you then when you sit down they bring your napkin with the utensils inside then another server asks what would you like to drink, they bring everything to your table. We loved the medallion, we purchased the sports band for our medallions. It would unlock our cabin door when ...

We found ourselves on a Western Caribbean cruise as a result of accruing credits from an early disembarkation back in 2020 due to COVID. Our original ports of call included Cozumel, Jamaica, Princess Cays, and Grand Cayman. Due to current COVID conditions, the cruise line changed our itinerary to Belize City, Mahahual, Mexico, Nassau, Bahamas and Cozumel Mexico(the only original port). Princess ...

We are long time Princess fans and this was our first cruise in two years. As only the second sailing of Carib, we were not sure what to expect. We were very pleasantly surprised! It was almost as we remember with the exception of face masks which were almost universally worn by both crew and pax. We did not think the food was quite up to our recollection, but it was fine as we are not ...

We did the Eastern and Western back to backs from 11-28-21 to 12-12-21. Embarkation was efficient and fast. The Covid protocols were excellent. Most passengers wore their masks when they should. The casino was a no mask zone for the most part due to smoking and drinking. The food was good, not great. Two of the specialty restaurants, Planks and Steamers, were not operating for either ...
