Caribbean Princess Cruise Review by stagehandron
- Sail Date: August 2017
- Destination: British Isles & Western Europe
- Cabin Type: Interior
Booked directly thru our Princess agent and she came thru with many updates and on board credits.
Had a little problem with embarkation(our fault we forgot and packed our passports) other then that it was smooth.
We always book an interior cabin for almost all of our time is spent on excursions or in the clubs or shows.
The ports of call and tours that we booked were all above expectation with the Tattoo being the highlight.
We also booked anytime dining for we like to meet new friends each meal.
Service was always efficient and friendly.
Our cabin steward always greeted us with our names and a big smile.He also went above and beyond on a few of our request.
Disembarkation went very smooth,we had an early afternoon flight so we were in the first group off the ship.
250,000+ people have entered their email
Had the queen size bed.Very comfortable.
Plenty of storage space.
All the amenities and a comfortable bath.

It only runs for three weeks so make sure you book during the running times.
This is drum and bugle corp on steroids and is awesome.

It is a must see event.
Only draw back was the long drive from Greenock.
Booked thru the ship and had nose bleed seats which was ok for us but a real problem for Seniors on the tour.

Told us that the Loch is long and narrow and is over a mile deep.
In 1989 an expedition using state of the art equipment came up with startling results showing that indeed something may in fact be there.
