We sailed on the Caribbean Princess on April 24, 2004 to May 1, 2004. We had our children 4 and 7 with us. We had sailed on the Disney Magic last summer and had a wonderful time. Actually we were a little afraid that we would be disappointed on another cruise line after such a good time on Disney. Needless to say, the cruise was fantastic. My group enjoyed themselves more on this cruise than on the Disney cruise. The ship was beautiful. There were 4 pools to choose from and 2 small children's pools, one of which was located in the Kids Club section. My children loved going to the Kids Club. The hours of operation were from 8-12, 2-5, and 7-10. Each night they had a children's disco which my children insisted on going to. The staff throughout the ship was very nice. One of the staff member working in the Kids Club was a Registered Nurse. On the final night of the cruise, they gave all of the children who attended a stuffed animal. They also colored t-shirts with the ship's logo on it. Needless to say, the ship was very clean. On sea days, we spent most of our time by the pool. The Movie under the stars was great. They closed the pool during the movie, but you could still get into the hot tubs which we did. If you wanted to swim, there were 3 other pools to choose from. Unfortunately, children were not allowed in the current pool. But, we do understand that each ship needs an adult pool only. Overall, we had a great time. We would definitely recommend this cruise.

This was our 7th cruise with Princess and found they finally got the Personal Choice Dining to really work very well. One must make a reservation by phone rather than at the desk outside the Dining Room. Consequently there were no lines in front of the dining room and a table for two, if desired, was never a problem. The food arrived hot and very good. The Sterling Steakhouse was excellent. If we did not want to eat in the Dining room we tried the Capri Cafe in back of the Lido cafe. This was set with table clothes each evening, with the same menu as the Dining room. Several evenings lobster was served with no limits, along with shrimp and crab. We sat in the Capri each morning for breakfast after making our selections in the Lido cage. It was never crowded. Same with lunch. Since there were so many children on board, Princess had groups of children for every 3 years of age. Our Granddaughter is 9 and she loved it. They treated the children very well with many activities appropriate for each group. The ship was very clean. We found the halls and elevator plazas very small which was a surprise with a ship of this size. The pools were very crowded but they had 2 adult pools, including a pool outside the spa which was great. Our main disappointment was with the entertainment. The two production shows were, at best, just loud. The other evenings were so so, with the exception of the comedians who were very good. We would recommend this ship. Read Less
