Cruise was to leave Brooklyn NY on Halloween however hurricane Sandy changed all that. Ship could not get into Brooklyn and was 2 days late and arrived in Manhattan instead. We thought Princess did the best they could considering the circumstances, however, we were slightly disappointed with the fact that we only visited Grand Turk and Aruba. Would have preferred to skip Grand Turk and go to any ...

This was our third cruise on the Caribbean Princess. We were glad to booked this particular sailing, since it allowed us to leave the Jersey Shore on November 2, four days after Superstorm Sandy, rather than staying home where power wasn't restored until November 8. Just to have heat and lights were a blessing! Because of the emergency, embarkation took place in Manhattan, rather than in ...

Going to keep it short, we have seen enough about Hurricane Sandy to be way tired of it! Friends from Texas flew in early to beat Sandy and possible airline interruptions. We all wound up huddled at our house doing day by day wait to see if NY would open and let Princess back in. They did finally and off to Manhattan we went. Despite no power at pier embarkation went pretty decent with two ...

First, kudos to the Cruise Critic folks for helping build the pre-cruise excitement through the Roll Call Message Boards. Our sailing had over 100 people involved, many of us who became fast friends onboard and learned a lot about sailing even before the cruise. Hopefully those of you will be sailing soon will join your Cruise Critic Roll Call. This was my partner and my 2nd cruise on the CB ...

We booked this trip, after a bad experience we had on the CB in July of 2010, after some luring by Princess to try the ship off peak time. The trip started off really rough with a freak October snow storm that dumped up to 18" of snow in the immediate NY Metro area. Even coming from North Jersey we had no problems getting to the dock and as usual checking in at the Brooklyn location was very easy. ...

We started the cruise in NYC; actually we stayed in Newark at the Hilton Penn Station hotel and found this to be very easy to get into and out of NYC at a fraction of the price of a NYC hotel. I think we paid about $120 per night and thought it was a great deal plus we could leave our hotel room, walk across the covered ramp to Penn Station, catch the train and are at World Trade area in 15 mins. ...

So the cruise began a little odd when snow started to fall as we boarded the ship around noon on October 29th but that was the only odd thing about the entire cruise. The Captain wisely kept us in Port in Red Hook that night as there was a biiiig storm brewing and I, for one, was grateful since a remake of Titantic was not on my "things to do" list even though there was a seminar on the Titantic ...

Although this was my 16th cruise, this was my first Princess cruise and it was a memorable one. I used the Princess transportation from the airport and I was pleased with the service. The Princess rep was at the baggage claim area confirming each passenger who booked the transfer service. We boarded the bus in a reasonable amount of time and was on our way to the port. Now on to the ...

We arrived in NY a week early and stayed at the Holiday Inn Midtown which turned out to my surprise to be a great area. We had a great time in NY, took in 3 shows, Promises Promises, Rock of Ages and Fela. Fela wasn't what I would call my cup of tea, the other two plays were fantastic and I would highly recommend. We had a great time in NY and it was hard to leave even though we were going on a ...

We used the transfer from LaGuardia airport to the Brooklyn Pier. Very fast, friendly and efficient. The Princess rep was waiting for us at baggage claim. It took a little longer than expected to board, as the cruise before had an outbreak of NoroVirus, and had to be disinfected. Once we were on the ship, we immediately felt relaxed! Our Mini-Suite was wonderful and our room steward, ...
