After booking this cruise last year I didn't really know what to expect as reviews on this site have been mixed. So hear goes. We travelled to Southampton to meet the ship, the journey taking approx 2 hours, which was good given the amount of traffic on Sat 1 Aug. The embarkation process was faultless and we boarded the ship at 11.30am, we where able to go straight to our stateroom whereupon two of our three suitcases had already arrived. We ate freestyle and always managed to obtain a table in the restaurant, and went to the Crown Grill on one occasion which was excellent, who ever thought of giving a selection of all the puddings on one plate, well done they where brilliant. The steaks where faultless and cut like butter...all our food experiences where very good even the buffet where it is often difficult to obtain a seat but we just struck lucky and always managed to find somewhere to sit. We arranged to do all our trips ourselves but booked a private company for St Pete's found on TA because the visa is £100, this was included in the price with the tour company very good really. The weather was in the late 70degrees and remained constant for the whole cruise, this really made the trip as many of us had planned for cold or rain. All the crew where very helpful, the entertainment staff where brilliant a mention to Baily who taught us the Tango and Marvin who was a great laugh. We found the ship to be well kept clean and didn't see any of the ripped carpet or dishevelled look that some people on this site had mentioned. I understand we all have different standards but we found this ship to be well above average, the staff worked so hard to keep it that way. Overall we had a brilliant time and met some wonderful people and would certainly travel on the Caribbean Princess again no problem

Princess does it again.

Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin IC
Our cabin was well kept and clean, large enough to meet all our needs, plenty of hot water, comfy bed, well stocked fridge, hair drier and plenty of socket but you will need an adapter for English electrical products, and a wonderful steward who kept it clean every day.
