Caribbean Princess Cruise Review by tcbfast
- Sail Date: October 2019
- Destination: Canada & New England
- Cabin Type: Interior
We did none of the Princess offered tours (I'm just not into herding cats on busloads of people).
The ship itself was quite nice. A recent refurbishment, plus the addition of the Medallion system made the sea days very enjoyable. It is a large ship and things can get quite crowded when it is full, but we always seemed to find a place for a quiet interlude if we wanted to.
Princess has been striving to produce some new entertainment shows and we could see that paying off in the shows on this cruise. Let's just hope they do enough of them we don't hit too many repeats when we cruise again next year on another ship.
The food was much better this cruise compared to our last Princess cruise to Hawaii in March 2018. The variety of dishes were good, the food delivered hot, and cooked to order.

One thing we noticed was the removal of the small table that is usually in the Interior cabins on Princess. Thank goodness! WE usually ask the steward to remove it anyway as it just gets in the way!

Charlottetown (Prince Edward Island)Duncan did an EXCELLENT job showing us around PEI. He went above and beyond to really get us a cross-section of life on the Island and we saw the best fall colors to satisfy our leaf peeping wants!View All 13,326 Charlottetown (Prince Edward Island) Cruise Port Reviews

Bras D'or LakesSean was an excellent guide and really paid attention to our small groups wants. We took in a lot of scenery before heading to the Bell Museum. The van was comfortable and Sean's commentary along the way was both fun and educational. An excellent tour and the price beats anything the ship offered. This tour would have required booking two tours on the cruise ship. WE saw Bras D'or and Cape Breton as well as a tour of SydneyView All 12 Bras D'or Lakes Reviews
The Bell MuseumA great experience as we had just read a biography on Bell. This is the place where he went far beyond the telephone and invented things like speed boats and airplanes as well as much more.View All 22 The Bell Museum Reviews
