  3. Caribbean Princess
Chose this cruise because of the sea days. Ports of Le Havre, Bruge, and Lisbon were very interesting with perfect sunny weather. Did not take any of the overpriced Princess shore excursions. Caribbean Princess is beginning to show its age, but is still a nice ship. Dining room service at dinner was very good, but open-seating breakfasts and lunch had only so-so service. Fish dishes were very good, but I can't say the same for beef entrees. Not as many on-board things to do with the Princess Patter showing many revenue-producing events. "Bravo", one of the main dance shows, was great, and the other 2 dance shows very good. The sound in the Princess Theater was far to loud and tinny sounding. No problems with embarkation and disembarking. Recommend using a taxi to FLL instead of Princess transfer: $14 and change to get to the airport. Uber is available and cheaper, but due to popularity not available in a timely way.

Average cabin, somewhat confining. Nothing out of the ordinary.
