Firstly was a 10 day eastern carribean not 20 day Panama as stated above., the cruise in itself was an enjoyable holiday but only because I made it that, the food was pretty good on board the staff are all hard working and very pleasant , although storm Florence dictated the itinerary and we ended going to places I wouldn't have considered prior to booking but at least we all arrived home safely. My main gripe is that we had a change to itinerary because of the storm probably a good choice by the crew but surely offering 20% discount for future cruises is a form of piracy by ensuring if I want to cash In I MUST book a princess cruise (not going to happen) , offers of on board benefits may have softened the blow like maybe free access to the Internet to at least allow us to let family and friends know we are safe and to lighten the disappointment of not going where we thought you were. The captains circle get free access to this as well as free everything else it seems and from my experience seeing circle members at work you must first dump your manners and treat the staff like slaves and look down your nose at fellow passengers. 13 dollars 50 cents per person per day surcharge should be made a lot clearer that this can be removed on request as I didn't hear about it until departure time and managed to rectify before I got off. Paying for water whilst in your room or leaving the ship on port days is a nightmare and surcharges added to all on board purchases makes this a very expensive way to spend your holiday when you would expect the cost of the holiday to cover this on board stuff. The on board entertainment was very limited and can't say it inspired me to look forward to night time mostly posh captains circle type classical and stuff one end of the ship and and common cinema type evening the other end really do need to look at your passengers and maybe don't run boring , acupuncture classes or muscle relaxation entertain us not medicate us. I could go on, as a holiday I enjoyed it but when on board I was actually boredstiff waiting to ports I could get off and have fun. And before you all jump on my back I am a very late 50s person not an energetic a youngster incase you all get me wrong. Princess Cruises I probably won't ever be back on board anytime soon and you will probably be pleased that it is another 20% refund you will save but please get the itinerary and the costs on a par with the performance of your crew and maybe just maybe you might get me to change my mind.

Having cruised previously on other lines, we thought we were upgrading to Princess for our cruise to the Eastern Carribean this year. The ship is satisfactory with many signs of wear including loose and missing tiles on the bathroom floor within our suite and rusted and degraded railings on our balcony. My biggest concerns come from the food and the customer service. The food on Princess is sub-par at best. While breakfast was decent, the lunch and dinner buffets were disappointing night after night. The options were random, the quality of the food poor, the salad bar, if you could call it that, was almost non-existent, and I couldn't find a roll or piece of bread the entire week that wasn't hard as a rock. The Salty Dog Burger wasn't any better, I ordered a veggie burger that was inedible and my fiance wouldn't eat his cheeseburger either. The ice cream shop was, quite frankly, awful, unless you paid for a specialty milkshake or ice cream sandwich, in which case they used actual ice cream from a different cooler!! But my biggest complaint would be the customer service from the crew. We could not find someone who spoke English well enough to understand easily. On Thursday (a sea day) we were woken up before 9am by someone banging a hammer for over 30 minutes. Later that day, our cabin started to smell like sewage. I called the front desk who informed me that they would send someone to check it out. An hour later, nobody had come to our room so we went to the front desk. The attendant told us someone was working on the issue. Would it have been that hard for someone to call our room and tell us that? No customer service. On Friday morning we were again woken at 845 by the hammering. This time I called the front desk and they sent someone to our room a half hour later. The hammering was still going on, so he heard it, and his answer was that maintenance didn't inform guest services about the work. We paid 3k for a suite to relax on our cruise, not be woken up early by maintenance two days in a row. And, as a business owner myself, the response of guest services was pathetic... Overall will not cruise with Princess again, it is not worth the money. Read Less

My wife and I booked a last minute cruise for just a relaxing get-away. We booked just a little over a week before the sail date. Our goal was to get-away, relax, enjoy the sea and let someone else do the cooking. The embarkation and disembarkation was smooth as could be expected. For the disembarkation we opted for the EZCheck program. The EZCheck program enables you to put your luggage out the night before disembarkation, as you normally would, but the luggage is taken direct to the airline and you pick up your luggage at your destination if you are flying. This was absolutely great and we will do it anytime we fly (sometimes we drive). The cost was $25 as of 8/25/2018 but was well worth it. The Caribbean Princess is scheduled for dry dock in 2019 but it did have some upgrading done in 2017. The ship is a beautiful ship and I don't think you will be disappointed. The Piazza is not as large as the newer ships, but still beautiful. Because we had booked at the last minute there were only inside cabins available. We have had an inside cabin before and have no problem with them. Of course you don't have a window or a balcony, but we both slept like babies and enjoyed the rest. Speaking of sleeping, Princess Cruises have put in some new beds on some of their ships. The new beds are great. We talked to a couple of people who did not like them, but as with anything, some will like it and some will not. We loved the beds. Now we come to the dining: Princess has gone down hill in their food on the ship. They have made it very clear that if you want good food, go to one of the specialty dining rooms and pay the extra fee. This may be OK for some cruisers, but my wife and I are retired and do not eat a lot, but we do enjoy good dining. The food served in the dining room and the buffet was very poor. Hot items were cold and the selection was poor at best. The waitstaff in the dining room acted as though they did not want to be there. On one night the waiter came over to the table and proceeded to grind pepper on my dinner without asking, I hate black pepper. When I raised my hand and said "no" he kept grinding and looked at me as though I surely didn't mean no! Unless you opt to pay for a cup of coffee, do not expect to receive anything that is drinkable. The coffees you can buy are good, but not the ones served. Neither my wife nor I are finicky eaters, and we certainly done claim to be experts in dining, but the food service aboard this cruise was bad enough that we cancelled our scheduled cruise in December. The entertainment was good. There was one night that neither my wife or I enjoyed, but it was truly our taste, and not that of the performers. On another evening, there was a comedian that was very funny and we enjoyed him immensely. Overall the entertainment was very good. If you are new to cruising, try to get to the Princess Theater at least a half hour before the show to get a seat. The service overall was very good, except in the main dining room. In the buffet, the waitstaff promptly removed dirty dishes and we on the spot for drinks. We did utilize the EZCheck option when disembarking which we had never used before. Normally we drive. The EZCheck allowed us to put our luggage out the evening before disembarking, just as you normally would; but for a fee of $25 each, once they collected the luggage it was delivered direct to the airport and we did not see the luggage until we arrived at our destination. EXCELLENT option. Read Less

I recently arrived from a Princess Cruise Vacation. This was my first time sailing with Princess and I don't think I will ever go on another Princess ship again. Several things happened during my trip that compared to other cruises are unacceptable. First, I had stated it was my anniversary on the Princess website and upon arrival I see other cabin doors decorated (with Celebrate signs or Anniversary signs) but ours was not. Also, I had opted for champagne in our room. When we arrive, I see a note that states we have to call room service for the champagne (so it's not sitting out for too long). This was fine. I called for the champagne maybe over three times between that day and the next (not exaggerating) they never brought us our champagne. At the end, I told them I didn't even want it. I also complained about our room not being decorated and all they said is they could either decorate it now (a day after our anniversary) or bring chocolate covered strawberries. At that point I was somewhat over the whole thing so I told them to forget about it. But then other issues happened. Upon showering, the water in our cabin was cold. I then went to the front desk to have someone check it out and they never came that night (I ended up showering with cold water). It was not till the next day (midday) that someone came and fixed our shower. To our amazement there are two knobs in the shower and they were originally switched that is why the knob could not turn all the way to produce hot water. I was in shock. Another thing, the remote in our room would not work. Flipping the batteries was the only way to get the channel changed. I had to call about this too. At the end all these issues were addressed however these issues should not have even occurred. Complaining about all these issues cost me time from enjoying myself and frustration as many times it would take a day or so for the issues to be addressed. The customer service on this ship was by far the worst I have ever seen. Nothing other than chocolate covered strawberries were done to corroborate for all the mishaps we experienced. The crew did not seem to be hospitable perhaps in helping you find an area of the ship if you seemed lost or for instance, in the pool area, to get a waiter to come to get your drink order was nearly impossible. My partner and I joked about how the service off the ship was better than on the ship. I also saw that the ship was recently renovated, however, the pool/outside area lack in a renovation. The inside was relatively nice, the cabins are pretty spacious, but the outside needs work. See pictures below. Not the cleanest either. Another HUGE issue was the food. Which was one of the biggest let downs this cruise had to offer. The selection was poor and there was at least one thing in every sitting that was not to my liking. I am not a picky eater and have never had an issue with poor food on any previous cruise I've ever been on. So this was a big downfall about this ship. All in all, the cruise experience could've been so much better. The food, the customer service, and the outside area of the ship need major improvement. Entertainment was also average. I do not recommend this ship to anyone. Read Less

We chose this cruise for our honeymoon after researching ships due to it being more for retired older people because we did not want alot of children on board, and we got what we wanted, there were very few children the first week and quite a lot of teens on the second week. However, the food was not only tasteless but old, meaning that the desserts were premade and left out to dry out the mousse was dry and cracked etc. We ate at Sabatinis the food had very little taste and portions were small, the crown grill steaks were delicious but everything else was just gross, The Plank barbeque had no taste, small portions and the sides and appetizers were tasteless and did not really go with barbeque. The only thing we ate on board that we enjoyed was the pizza and hamburgers and fries and after 2 weeks i wont be eating pizza any time soon. Buffet food was disappointing everytime, what is supposed to be cold was too warm and hot food was barely room temp. The same things were served over and over. Nothing had any flavor. Unfortunately we threw away alot of food just tasting different stuff trying to find something we liked. We did not see any shows because we didnt care to but I heard the comedians were great. Getting on and off the ship was pretty smooth but they lost my luggage and just so you know you dont have to give your luggage to the porters, you are guided through in such a way that we thought we had to, but you dont. If I had known that I wouldnt have lost my bag which they eventually got to me around 10 pm the first day. Showers are small, very small. The staff was fabulous though, our room steward Pablo was very nice and attentive but no towel animals, and we had to ask for the robes that were supposed to be in there already because we requested one prior to cruise on the personalizer. No fault of Princess but the cruise ports were soooooooooooo touristy, we were herded through so many gift shops that had the same items every where we went. Princess caye was a beach and it was crowded and the food sucked. St Thomas we took an independant tour of the island and the guide just went on and on about how poor the area was, im not unsympathetic but I would like to know more about the island. St Maarten has a beautiful beach with great food thats as far as we went, and if someone tells you to shop for electronics there be warned most of it was higher than walmart prices. Grand cayman has beautiful beaches and we loved the submarine ride. Roatan we went to gumbalimba the park is pretty the monkeys are mean and the birds are huge. Belize we went cave tubing it was cool but our tubes were all tied together and I would have loved to spend more time exploring the park it was amazing. Cozumel was soooooooooo touristy but we went to the national park and went snorkeling it was the highlight of our excursions Read Less

This was my 6th cruise (Holland, Celebrity, and Carnival), 1st on Princess. I tend to travel like an old person, with early mornings and early bedtime, and I'm not into the party scene. For me cruising is a relaxing vacation with fun new places to visit, and it's not about boozing it up, or climbing a rock wall. Based on what I'd read, Princess sounded like my style. The embarkation process was very smooth and easy, and then up to Lido to kill time waiting for our room (a reasonable wait time considering we were on board very early.) We were in E416, obstructed view but not too obstructed, and the location was fantastic -midship, and a middle floor. No noise problems, which I was concerned about given how close to the elevators we were. There were two big issues with the room: 1. This is the tiniest bathroom I've ever had. The shower was ridiculously tiny, and certainly was not roomy enough to do anything like turn around, or shave my legs in it. (I had to sit on the shower seat and put my legs up on the toilet, and my roommate had a very hard time due to some mobility issues. 2. There is a serious lack of electrical outlets!!!! One outlet with two plugs in the sleeping area, 2 low power outlets in the bathroom. My roommate had a CPAP and another medical machine to plug in and had to be close to her, we both had phones to charge, camera batteries to charge, and a tablet to charge. Good thing we brought a plug strip! The location of the outlet still sucked, I had to navigate around my roommates bed in the middle of the night to get to my phone cord to plug my phone in. (Because princess has a website at sea they want you to use, I had my phone with me all week, and I really hadn't expected to want to carry it.) That said, our room steward, Pratap (sp?) Was amazing!, and I don't think he ever got a chance to sleep, cleaning and tidying the room 3 times a day. The room was disappointing, but what really put a damper on our trip was the food and dining experience. Having sailed with other cruise lines before, we were expecting to have some great meals. Instead, the buffet was boring and rarely seemed to change from day to day, and it wasn't big enough to offer variety. We were in Mexico, but there wasn't a taco on sight?) The dining room service was attentive, but horribly slow! 2 hour meals were the norm. (I like relaxed dining, but it made us miss the show sometimes it was so slow.) And the food was, at best, okay. The potatoes were consistently in need of salt (or flavor.) The main courses were generally flavorless. Desserts were disappointing in variety. The selection was disappointing to say the least. (I liked the pizza station and the soft serve, but I have low standards for those two items.) We paid $29 one night to dine at the Crown Grill and were very surprised to find it a pleasing meal, much more like the meals we enjoyed on Holland America and other ships in the past. (The mashed potatoes of all things were the best part. Wish they let us take the leftovers back, I hardly ate any of my steak after the asparagus and potatoes, but I did get to take dessert to the room!) Also, our waiter was great. His name was Zsolt). Apparently Princess wants you to pay for what other lines include already. I'm glad we didn't go until the end of the week, it would have made the other food that much more disappointing, and I certainly didn't budget for $30 a night for meals. We had a hard time finding water onboard. I felt like I was inconveniencing the pool area bar staff when I had to ask for a glass of something they didn't get paid for. The other bars were friendlier, but it was still ridiculously unavailable. I would have killed for more water stations. I also felt like we were getting Nickel and dimed to death. Aside from booze costs, which I expected, they charged for fancy coffees, milkshakes, a coupon book, bottled water, burgers and fries and so on. I get that they have to pay for the water, but to charge $2.50 a bottle when that can buy a case on the mainland was just plain wrong. Points to Princess for cleaning and maintenance. Every day we saw the crew out painting, patching sanding and restaining, and generally keeping the ship in shape. We only saw one show, a musical performance by a guy who THOUGHT he was funny. Horse racing was great. The pools (2 midship, I never made it to the others) were comfortable. Horse racing was fun. Watching the pool games was fun. We enjoyed the wine tasting both at sea days. I wish they put some of the singers in the bigger lounges rather than the piano bar off of the atrium, it was standing room only on several nights. My roommate has mobility issues and the staff did their beat to help out. (Except in the dining room, they seemed to like to sit us in the back of the room, and it's a maze to get there and out again.) Elevators were plentiful except on embarkation and disembarkation day. But the doors closed fast! Which was tough for someone with trouble walking, so I learned to move quick and hold the door. Also not impressed that the promenade deck had stairs. My roomie made it up once on embarkation day, but never tried again, which took away some of the fun of walking the ship when we could only do 4/5ths of it. We went on city tours in Grand Cayman, Belize, and Cozumel. Loved the turtle farm and tour in Grand Cayman, and in Cozumel on the land and sea tour, the semi sub was awesome!!! Would not recommend the city tour in Belize. The city is obviously struggling, and we felt uncomfortable on the open air trolley. All we heard about afterward was how we should have done the cave tubing. We did the ultimate beach package at Roatan and loved it. Included a Cabana, snorkel gear, 2 floats, the chair lift, and 30 minutes of kayaking. Just check your tickets- we bought 2, only to find that one ticket was for 2 people. They were kind enough to refund the second ticket to our account. Also, however often you apply sunscreen, you WILL burn that far south. Bring aloe, especially if you can find aloe with lidocaine. Keep it on the fridge for super cold relief. New cruisers were all impressed with the ship, so it might make a good first cruise, but we heard from several well seasoned cruisers that this cruise was not up to snuff for them either. (On a side note, make sure to ask everyone how many cruises they've been on... The answer may shock you!) Final tip: do yourself a favor and have the cruise line take care of getting your baggage to the airport after-hours I wish we had!!! We will probably go back to traveling with Holland America after this, but will certainly not be on the Caribbean Princess ever again. Read Less

We chose this cruise lines because Princess was our honeymoon 15 years ago. I was very surprised with the food in the restaurant it was terrible! In the past the food was excellent and now the food was horrible! Also if you want to eat better you have to pay a restaurant on the ship. Also it was boring, they didn't even have music on. The room was a balcony room and it was very small. Total disappointment! Norweign was so much better I wont cruise with Princess again. The ship was beautiful but boring! More music is necessary! Caribbean music and more announcements of whats going on during the ship experiences! The pictures were very expensive and no lobster was given in the restaurant. That was always part of the restaurants menu. If you bring back the old ways Ill give Princess another try. For now I recommend not to travel Princess. Read Less

Embarkation and disembarkation were smooth and quick. But the food was horrible. In 7 days I never got a piece of seafood that wasn't overcooked, nor a piece of beef that wasn't tough. Lobster was inedible. Desserts were beautiful but not tasty (I was really looking forward to the ice cream because I'm addicted to it, but it was icy and full of crystals). Chocolate was all dark and bitter. And that was the main dining room. The Marketplace buffet was no better...just a bigger selection of bad. Even the upscale Crown Grill was awful. Neither my husband nor I could eat our ribeyes..so tough and full of gristle. We even had a green fly land on the food. Room was small and the toy shower was a joke. So was the entertainment in the princess theater except the last night. That was very good. The comic was also funny on one night. Some elevators didn't work and they had buckets sitting in dining areas to catch water from leaks. Thank goodness the bed and pillows were wonderful and comfortable. Other cruisers we talked to had some of the same opinions. Oh, the end of cruise sales were no sales. Very overpriced. It was next to impossible to get room or guest services on the phone. And when we did get room service they brought tea with either no sweeteners or nothing to stir with. Room steward was nice and helpful, but so short she couldn't reach the ceiling to clean the dirty vent in the bathroom, which my husband did himself so nothing would fall out of it on us. We did have a couple of good servers which we acknowledged personally. Read Less

This was an 8-night cruise to the Dutch islands of Curacao, Bonaire, and Aruba, and the dates worked well for us. As a second cruise on Princess within a year (first one was in Alaska), the Caribbean Princess was very disappointing. On the positive side: Our cabin was nice -- a mini-suite with a balcony and real bathroom with a tub. Very comfortable bedding and air conditioning worked well. Room steward was very attentive and our cabin was cleaned as soon as we left the room. The dinners in the dining room were very nice with numerous choices, special requests handled graciously, and very pleasant staff. The choices for breakfast and lunch were usually in one of the public dining areas which had plentiful choices from the buffet, made-to-order omelets for breakfast, and different selections everyday for lunch. Very good wait staff there as well. Regarding entertainment, the few shows offered were quite enjoyable and provided a variety of acts. From comedy, to a staged show, to a music and dance theme, all were enjoyable. In the negative zone: We found very little to do onboard the ship during sea days, and scheduled events involved selling something. From China-made clothing events, to posture/walking products, other care products, and art of course. We regularly found that there was very little seating, IF any, in the atrium area to enjoy a coffee or listen to music, or just rest for a bit. The worst experience for me was on the first day of port visits in Curacao. We had booked the Hato Cave Tour which left at about Noon. The first stop at the cave nearly resulted in me needing a paramedic. There were over 50 very steep steps UP to a cave, which necessitated me to sit midway on one step to allow me to catch my breath and continue on (about 10-15 minutes). Once in the cave, it was hot and not a "cooled cave" as you would expect. It did have quite a few fans on stands, but there was no place to sit unless you were cautious not to lean back and possibly fall into the cave about two stories down. I was close to having suffered a heat stroke and tried my best not to black out. I was thankful to a couple of ladies from California who stayed with me and subsequently helped me out of the cave. The tour guide seemed blind to my distress. Afterwards back on the bus, one of the ladies gave me a fruit to help my dehydration and give me some nourishment. Our tour was supposed to go back to the ship so we could have lunch but the cancelled that portion. We were provided with NO food, snacks, beverages for the entire time of the tour, with all the provisions that there are on the ship. The tour guide, Ursula, provided many facts that guests needed to correct her about. I did not get off the bus for the rest of the day in fear or heat exhaustion again. The guide rearranged the order of the tour, and we did not get back to the ship until 8:00PM. At that point, we were unable to make the 8:30PM dinner at the specialty restaurant. We were not dressed for it nor in a state of mind to enjoy it. Being diabetic and not having enough to drink or eat for that many hours was a serious issue. That tour really ruined the beginning of our ports of call and my attitude towards Princess. Our experience with Princess tours in Alaska was excellent, so this experience was a 180-degree difference. We reported the Curacao tour issue onboard the Caribbean Princess to their excursion desk, but they did not seem very caring. Also, I was not the only one to have difficulty with the Hato Cave climb or inside visit. It truly ruined my view of Princess tours. Read Less

The best parts of this cruise was the Ft. Lauderdale port ease of access, the comfort of their beds, their countless trivias ( and I mean this was one of best sources of entertainment), and a general friendliness of the cruise director staff. Other than that, it was pretty disappointing. We chose traditional dining, because we wanted that bond with our wait staff. From the first dinner, we realized that wasn't going to happen. Our waiter barely unacknowledged us. Only briefly as we sat down and ordered, then again quickly as he took our desert order. Other than that, the only time he was at our table was to pick up or deliver dishes.. not drinks btw, those were few and far between. Now I heard, if you want good foid and service, visit one of their many "pay to eat" restaurants. Which is ridiculous for the price you pay for the cruise. Oh and btw... the buffet is the same, if not better at your local Golden Corral. Entertainment was a joke! Which is ironic, since the only shows they offered were 4 different comedians. I guess they hoped at least one would be funny. There was a rock n roll show that was ok. They had karaoke most nights, and a show called voice of the ocean. Along with a couple 45 min game style shows. Which is pathetic for a 10 day cruise. Leaves a lot of time doing nothing. We were so excited about the pools....5 of them!!! Too bad they were sooo cold no one could go in them. Most of the cruise they all stood completely empty. The hot tubs were nice, when they were not closed. Which wasn't very often. Oh, the aft elevators..... well you had to be very brave to risk those. ( or hungry, since every restaurant was at the back of the ship) but those elevators, would catapult you up or drop you down several levels without rhyme or reason. You were on their terms once the doors closed. Took us several attempts every time we used them. Quite scary and dangerous. I was actually shocked when I was reminded that the ship was built in 2005 and remodeled in 2017, seemed and looked much older. Our cabin wasn't that bad. But, the shower was extremely small. If you are over 200 lbs, or handicapped, be very cautious about booking without checking the sizes of the shower. As I mentioned in the beginning, most the cruise director staff was friendly, but.....if this is you first time on princess, be aware they cater grately to those with multiple sailings. So you may just have to wait a while to get service. As far as the ports and shore excursions, you can't credit princess with the same thing you can get with any cruise line. But, it was nice being able to visit 6 ports. Overall this cruise was a huge disappointment and waste of money. I would highly recommend either another princess ship or an entirely different cruise line. Read Less
