9 nights on a floating resort

Sail Date: August 2009
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
This was our first cruise, and before we took this cruise we checked some others and read the reviews of the ones we thought were interesting. We booked our cruise thru expedia, on the Caribbean Princess, 9 night sailing out of brooklyn. This was convenient since we live in the bronx. Getting to the ship and on board was fast, 20 min. from the time we got out of the cab until we were in our cabin. Let the party begin, the cruise director, Dan, was great from the time we came on board until we left the cruise. The whole cruise was relaxing, but its seems like we did a lot, well i know we did, and some how we were totaly relaxed. going to the beaches, shopping, wandering the different islands, and the ship. The shows on board, the shore excursions, drinking , eating and just total merry making. i can say that when we did get back to our cabin at night or early morning, we definitly passed out. The best bar on the ship is in the back of the boat at the adults only pool. Definately a More chill out spot. nothing was bad about this cruise great weather, great destinations and did i mention the great service, our cabin steward, Filimon, was the best. He kept our room clean, no problem with the towels, even beach towels. turns down your bed at night, leaves chocolates on pillows. Nice touch. The only draw back was the Pizza bar. They need to hire someone from brooklyn to make the pizza. It sucked. But all the other food was great. Less

Cabin review: bac-614

We had a balcony room ,it was very nice. The bed was uncomfortable, slept on better bed in a 3 star hotel. Shower was like Cruise director dan said," soap up the walls and spin". it is small, but water temp and pressure was excellent. Balcony was big, 2 chairs, 2 lounge chairs and a table. great view and quiet.

Port and Shore Excursions

ok port, built for the cruise ships, you can tell. at the end of the island. there is a shopping area right there, and a marigritaville. the beach is ok a little rocky. it was crowded because there was another ship in port. hardly any shade, and it was hot.

Bermuda, was nice. we took the ferry to downtown. The one day public transportation pass was only 12 dollars. We shopped in downtown, and then took a bus to Horseshoe beach, the pink sand beach, nice beach when we were there another ship was in port so the beach was full of people, but not at all crowded.The only draw back is the walk down the hill to the beach. we took a cab back to downtown for 8 dollars and used the pass for the ferry back to the ship. Great people, and a great port.

The best port on the cruise. This could be the only stop and i would not complain.One of the best beaches i ever seen and i've seen some of the best. Shoppin was close by and you can drop your purchases back at the ship, then go to the beach, Magens bay, Great beach, crystal clear water, you see the fish, i could have touched them. The snack bar and the bar are right there. Party time. we hated to leave. nice views from the top of the mountain.
