Just went on Circle Caribbean Cruise on the Caribbean Princess. Embarkation went smoothly and quickly thanks to the Medallion. Our balcony cabin was small but comfortable. The food in the main dining room was excellent as was the service. The buffet or fresh market was just a little disappointing. The variety of choices was lacking. The omelette stations in the BBQ and Crab Legs venue was different in that you had to choose your own items for it. I found this a little unusual. We found the international cafe wonderful as always. We've enjoyed the Stamtisch events at Vines on the Royal and Regal. This was not done on the Caribbean which was a little disappointing. We very much missed Alfredo's not being on the Caribbean. The entertainment was for the most part outstanding. The comedian early on the cruise, the Magician and Ventriloquist were all excellent. We saw the first 2 production shows and enjoyed them very much. I was a little disappointed in the fitness room. There were only 2 recumbent bikes and 2 stationary bikes and one of them wasn't working. Due to a death in my family we left the cruise early and departed for home from Barbados. The passenger services were both very helpful and compassionate during this difficult time for me and made our leaving the cruise mid way through it so much easier to deal with. While we only completed the first half of the cruise we would go on it again. I very much enjoy the idea of seeing the additional islands without returning to Ft. Lauderdale in between

Cabin BB A602
The cabin was a little small but comfortable. Our balcony was nice to sit out on. The bathroom was very small (duh)
