Sail Date: Oct 2013

his review encompasses a three week (back to back to back) cruise on the Caribbean Princess Oct. 5 to Oct. 26, 2013. The weather was very nice, with temperatures mostly in the mid 60s to 70 degrees and little rain. The foliage was nice the middle week (Oct. 12-19) was the best for foliage. The seas were calm also, with a only a little turbulence here and there. We flew nonstop from RDU to New York and the reverse home. Pretty painless. The back to back part was handled beautifully by Princess. I give them 10 out of 10 for embarkation and disembarkation.

THE SHIP: The Caribbean Princess is a nice ship, more like the Grand than the Crown, Emerald or Ruby. It is scheduled for dry dock in the Spring of 2014 and it does need it. Lots of cosmetic stuff needs updating but overall it was a terrific cruise. The crew/staff was some of the best we've seen. Our cabin steward (Bibiana) was the best we've EVER had in about 35 cruises!

DINING: We started out with anytime dining but were looking for a table for 2 and that was nearly impossible to get. We were told many more tables for 2 will be added during the dry dock, hopefully eliminating this problem. We were lucky enough to get a traditional seating table for 2 at the 5:45 pm seating in the Palm Dining Room and that worked out wonderful. The headwaiter, Dou was wonderful and very accommodating. Our waiter, Emil and assistant waiter, Valeria, were GREAT! The food was delicious some of the best beef dishes I've ever had on a cruise.

Cabin Review

It was a very nice room for the price. WE were on the 10th floor in the middle of the ship. Our cabin steward was terrific.
