We chose this cruise specifically to cruise Princess Cruise Lines. This particular voyage was to their private island, St. Thomas and St. Marteen. There were not many children on board and the ship caters to a mature crowd. My husband and I enjoyed the huge screen on top as we watched movies and concerts.
The ship is beautiful. The food was wonderful and the entertainment spectacular. We did anytime dining and never waited for more than 15 minutes. We also ate in Crown Grill one night and that meal was wonderful. The entire medallion experience was delightful. Not having to unlock cabin doors and bartenders recognizing you when you approach is very nice.
Embarkation was a snap. I have never been on a ship by 1:30 pm. We were able to have a nice lunch and change to go up top for the sail away party. Disembarkation was very smooth as well.
If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing escape with your spouse or partner -- this cruise is for you! There are so many activities that you will never get bored. This is not a party ship -- and I was very pleased that it wasn't! Read Less

(Just cruised eastern half)
Planned this cruise to celebrate my husband's retirement. Thought it would be a spectacular start. This was our fourth cruise, fourth cruise line. Never had a complaint before. Can't believe how horrible this was.
Embarkation was incredibly smooth. Went early to escape the crowds waiting at the hotel. Figured we'd rather wait in a long line at terminal and were surprised to walk right on ship shortly after 11am.
Our room steward was the perfect mix. Had everything in order without being intrusive.
The other good is the medallion system. Once you figure it out it's awesome. All their training seems to have gone into this. Need to work on service now.
Had anytime dining. No table for two first night so sat with others which we enjoyed. Surprised to see many men in shorts.
Next night (not formal) my husband decided to wear dress shorts and button down shirt. We accidentally ended up walking near the set time dining room. The host dressed in a white suit came rushing at my husband demanding to know if we intended to eat there. I said no, we were looking for the anytime. He made a spectacle of us and announced loudly that he wouldn't be allowed to eat there either dressed like that. Everyone in line staring gaped mouth at this. Three days into retirement and an arrogant ignoramus is yelling at him. He changed to dress pants and we rode the elevator down with a couple men heading to dinner in their dress shorts. I did let them know my husband had just been yelled at for this. And laughed and tried to let it go.
Not being a meat eater the dinners were quite disappointing. I don't know how they turn fish into a dry leathery substance...even the everyday favorite salmon is incredibly dry. The trout was spectacular one night, probably because I asked if it could be made without the seafood stuffing so they made me a special one, which I greatly appreciated.
I had read the complaints about how lengthy dinner service was. We enjoy leisurely dinners so I thought that was overblown. The time it took between each course was ridiculous. Complaints are spot on. Probably why there is never enough seating as well.
Booked the enclave for the week because I have back issues and the heated stone loungers are a godsend. Usually. They have many of them. None work as they should...lukewarm at best so no point. Asked at desk if she could up the temperature. Said she would. Never happened. I improvised and laid down on a double seat in a heated room to get the heat in my back. This worked well for a couple days. They lost their heat as well. A couple days in...no heat.
The voice of the ocean finale they handed out remotes to vote for your favorite. Had to trade it for your medallion. The way out of the princess theater was a nightmare...I had come out the far door from desk. People all around getting their medallions back. Mine had a novel attachment unlike any other so I put the remote down and picked mine up. Unable to name here (the girl at desk) literally screamed at me "don't touch them!!" She took it back then looked at the remote for the number and yes, it was mine so gave it back to me. I just walked away in shock...having not been yelled at since I was twelve. Then went back to get her name so I could complain to passenger services, who basically said "well you should have waited in line so it's your fault but yeah I'll let them know". I understand they put this single crew member in a terrible situation with everyone exiting the theater at the same time coming from different doors. But no passenger should be screamed at. A polite " I'm sorry no one can handle these but me" would suffice. Totally unacceptable behavior from her and passenger services who should have just apologized for the behavior. Need to come up with a more fluid system with the remotes so crew unequipped for handling pressure don't crumble.
Pub lunch at wheelhouse was the best fish on the boat. In the ship fact sheet it states lunch is offered daily. It was offered once. The last full day so a ridiculous long wait to get in. The same host, who yelled at my husband previously, seating everyone with lots of attitude.
I don't think princess understands they are in the service industry. So severely lacking.
The cruise started with my husband being yelled and and ended with me being yelled at.
As if that wasn't enough, the final insult...we purchased the transfer to airport. Went to the dining room assigned for disembarkation,asked if there was paper I needed for transfer. He said no, just follow the group. It will be clear. Was easy getting out of terminal. Followed to blue sign saying princess transfers to right with rep also saying transfers to the right....which everyone was led to a lineup of taxis taking our bags and putting them in cars. (No princess rep in between) Drove to airport and then driver demanded payment. I needed a voucher for transfer which princess never gave us. Are you kidding me?? Ended up paying him. What else was there to do.
Finally made it home and all I want to do is cry.
Thankful that we at least met some lovely passengers along the way. Read Less

My hubby & I take Princess Cruises every time we cruise. We go in early Spring every year. I have 7 under my belt now & my hubby has 9. We stayed in Fort Lauderdale over night and were on the Regal Princess Ship by 11:15am on Sunday! That was terrific, we had lunch on the pool deck and went to the cabin at 1pm. Embarkation was smooth sailing, the sail way party was fun and the day was perfect! The 1st port of Call was Princess Cays (the cruise lines private island) we have been to Princess Cays 6 times before, so we just stayed on the ship and had a relaxing spa day. The next day was a Sea Day-we relaxed again w/a few activities on board. Regal Princess is a great ship, but it is not full of water slides or rock walls or diving shows, so some may find the ship a bit boring. We find it just right--for families and w/teens the activity level can be lack luster.
That being said many parents just let their kids roam around the ship, ages 11-16 total disgrace. Princess has movies under the stars on the pool deck, in the evenings they show more adult themed movies. One night we went to the movies under the stars (the movie was great by the way!) the teen boys yelled and hooted and disturbed everyone all thru the movies. Several guest went and told them to chill out and keep the screaming down. Well that did nothing, it made it worse. Many fellow passengers (myself included) wondered where in the world the parents are? So you don't parent on vacation? Seems strange to me, and your kids are now everyone else's problem. It was ridiculous! The last night of the cruise one the teen boys came up to me and said do you like my shirt? He had written curse words all over it--and proceeded to yell profanities at myself and other passengers. Again, where are the parents of these kids?? Princess did nothing to stop these kids, I informed them several times as did other passengers. It seems that when you go on vacation these lazy parents just don't care--Princess and fellow guests have to deal with these unruly brats!
The cruise itself was terrific, the productions shows are top-notch and the Beatlemaniacs are the best-they are real show stoppers, and totally fun!! The cabin was small, but adequate for just the 2 of us. Again this is not a mega ship--it is not a RC super ship, Regal Princess had 3560 passengers this cruise and that was enough, especially w/unsupervised teenagers running around all day & night. This cruise was a 2 week combo, but we only did the 1st week (last year we did the 2nd part of this cruise) Were told that only 291 guests stayed on for the 2nd week of the cruise, w/others getting on as we got off. St. Thomas had lovely weather, we went to Megans Bay. It was overcrowded w/6 ships in port that day. I can see if only 2-3 ships in port, Megans Bay would have been great. We shopped & had lunch near the cruise port. Both were excellent! St. Maarten we did the Sky Explorer at the Rainforest Adventure & Rockland Estate. It was gorgeous, you took a Sky lift up the side of St. Maarten (this is not for the faint of heart) and could see the entire island! Beautiful! Well worth the price. After 2.5 hours at the Estate we went to the beach and board walk. Had the best burger on the board walk. St. Maarten has the best beach (in my opinion) only 2 ships at port that day, so the beach was not crowded, and the view was awesome!
2 Relaxing Sea days on the way back to Fort Lauderdale (well other the being on the look out for parentless teenage boys)
All & all a great cruise, just wondering if we will continue w/the Princess Line? It maybe time to move to Celebrity Cruise Lines. That makes me sad, as I have spent thousands of dollars w/Princess, but I do not go in for terrible teenagers who parents don't care about them & want them to be everyone else's problem! Read Less

This was our first time on the Regal Princess and our fourth cruise aboard a Princess Ship. The Regal is Medallion ready and we loved the system. I could track my son, husband and other shipmates. There was one glitch in which I couldn't locate my daughter because she is a minor not staying in my cabin. It is to protect minors, but there was no way (yet) to let me add her. Our loop hole was that my son could track her as he was another minor.
Every dining experience was good. Our favorite speciality dining and the only one we did was Sabatini's. It's excellent! I highly recommend the short ribs in the main dining room on lobster night. I just ordered surf and turf and had the lobster tail on the side. We only ate breakfast in the dining room once, but wish we'd done it more often. We met lots of nice and interesting folks every time we shared a table.
In Princess Cay we just did a beach day and rented a clam shell. It's nice to have shade access if necessary. My mother in law did the glass bottom boat tour and said it was "Okay." (Not too thrilling). In St. Thomas we taxied to Red Hook and took the ferry over to St. John and then took another taxi to Trunk Bay Beach. It was a beautiful beach. There is a snorkeling "path" with some signs to read. It's not the best snorkeling I've ever seen, but it was still pretty. There are no chairs or umbrellas. We were only approached once by a lady living there selling bracelets. My daughter had to have one. The trip across the two islands was scary, but we made it. The roads and steep, winding and they drive on the opposite side of the road but still have the steering wheel on the left side. In St. Maarten we just grabbed a taxi and planned to go to Little Divi but the driver (Uncle Al's Taxi) talked us into Mullet. He was a GREAT driver and was basically a tour guide the entire drive. He charged us $8 per person one way. We got to the beach around eleven and planned to stay until 2:00. We thought Al would go drive more people, but he stayed at the beach chatting until we were ready to return. There were local ladies selling merchandise, massages and hair braiding on the beach. My daughter wanted braids so I said she could get three. I agreed to a massage without discussing a price (mistake). While I was off getting my massage my daughter got 14 ($42) braids and the massage lady told me I owed her $80. Good Lord, I am sure I could have argued, but I set my hubby to an ATM since I didn't think I'd need as much cash as we spent. Al drove him to a nearby casino. The chairs were two plus an umbrella for $15. What I thought would be a cheap taxi ride day ended up costing about $211---take away the massage and braids and it was just $89. My son bought a burger and a soda which was ten bucks I believe.
After the ports, we had two relaxing sea days that went all too fast. The comedians were great and we enjoyed the shows we went to. We also went to several of the game show events in Princess Live...Voice of the Ocean, The Married Couples game, Majority Rules and Battle of the Sexes. All were entertaining...more so if you participate in the last two I mentioned. Cory was the cruise director and I thought he did a really nice job. The galley tour after the food demonstration was interesting. My husband and I did the $25 wine tasting in Allegro. We learned about six different wines. I managed to drink it all and I rarely drink. I could feel it when we were done. Next time I'll sign up for the $40 per person one to get better food. That one is less people and is held in Sabatini's.
The pool area was very nice and I didn't feel like it was too crowded. We were at the end of spring break season for public schools. I think there were only 300 children aboard out of about 3500, so a very small percentage. My 15 year old daughter really had a great time with the teen center. It's basically just a hang out. They have their own hot tub. My son (10) spent a lot of time at the basketball court and none in the kid program. I don't know why he didn't go there....just didn't want to. He used to participate when he was younger.
To sum it up, I'd definitely do it all again! Read Less

We chose this cruise because we wanted to snorkel and we wanted to try Princess cruises. The ship was lovely, clean, well maintained, well appointed. We enjoyed the water show and the outdoor movies at night. We LOVED the singers and dancers/production shows, and the Beatlemaniacs as well. The comedian was great. The food was beautifully presented and well flavored. Our waiters were very good - elegant, knowledgeable, attentive, kind. Our cabin was very well cared for. The weather was excellent, and we loved Princess Cay and St. Thomas. St. Maarten's traffic was bad, probably due to repairs being made from the hurricanes last year, so getting around took a long time. I would recommend going one place (a nice beach) and staying there, rather than trying to see much around the island. Maho beach was fun because the airplanes fly directly over the beach, and the water was great there. Orient Beach looked fun, but we didn't swim there. We will definitely cruise on Princess again.

Typical Caribbean cruise. Not much to see/do unless you like beaches. A beach excursion at every port. Other than that, we liked the swimming with the sting rays at Grand Cayman, the iguana farm at Roatan and the port at Cozumel. Unless you like those things, stay on the ship and enjoy being able to beat the "chair hogs" for the prime loungers near the pool.
The Movies Under the Stars was great. Make sure you get there early and get a chair directly in front of the screen - otherwise, you won't be able to hear the dialogue.
Cabin was very small and bathroom even smaller - enough storage room, however. The TV was by far the largest and the best reception we have ever had on a cruise.
Food was "meh". Both in the cafeteria and the dining room. They are trying to get you to go to the specialty restaurants and pay extra.
Entertainment was surprisingly good. Broadway quality. Those kids are really talented!
Finally, take lots of $$. They don't like to take credit cards at ports and will charge you extra to "swipe" one. You will be tipping at every turn - not much ($1-$5), but they live on those $$ and you really don't mind giving it to them. Only one stop where there was a little boy begging. I gave him $1.
One last comment on the excursions: typical in that they always make a "shopping" stop. Everyone has the same "stuff." But, if you want see an example of what life is like on those islands, take an excursion and don't fall asleep on the bus ride. Look out the window and be thankful for what you have and understand why the US is having a crisis on the southern border. Read Less

This was our fifth cruise with Princess, so we were familiar with this cruise line. We have cruised with three other cruise lines, including Celebrity. We were looking for a two week cruise in the Caribbean, and there weren't a lot of options. That's why we booked this cruise, which was sold as a single cruise, but was really two one week cruises: one week in the western Caribbean, then back to Fort Lauderdale; then leaving for a week in the eastern Caribbean.
Embarkation was a breeze. We arrived around one o'clock expecting a line, but practically walked right aboard. The online registration, and the medallion they've started using obviously speeds things up.
We did the five p.m. dining. The waiter and assistant waiter were both super.(or on the ship) for our second week. Dinners were fine, but nothing to get excited about. We went to the Steamers restaurant once (has a small cover charge), and enjoyed it. The buffet is typical - busy, but could always find a nice, quiet place to set. We loved the afternoon tea, but only went there twice...after all, how much can you eat between a full lunch and dinner shortly after five? International cafe is worth the visit for early morning coffee, and the occasional treat.
Cabin steward, as with all the staff we encountered, were the best - always pleasant, and anxious to help. He often inquired about how things were, and if there was anything he could do to help. A couple of things requested were taken care of asap. Things were always kept clean and tidy around the ship. You could see that they worked hard to keep things in ship shape!
Shows / entertainment were fine with the exception of a comment later...The entertainers in the bars and around the ship seemed to cater to an older demographic...which was fine with me. The quality of this music and guest entertainers was great.
Excursions: We did the snorkeling at Belize, and loved it. There was great coral, and lots of fish.
We did a clam shade rental and kayak rental at Roatan. It was okay, but the clam shade was kind of useless since, unlike the shades at Princess Cays, you couldn't adjust them to shade you from the sun.
The Cons: Let me preface this by saying that I consider these cons minor, and would not be a deal breaker in terms of going with Princess again. In fact, there is a two week circle Caribbean on the same ship next year, and we'll most likely be doing it.
Minor: I didn't enjoy shows put on by the ship's performers. I would describe them as LOUD.
Minor: The configuration of their buffet area is kind of unique and different. Personally, I think it causes congestion around the areas where you pick up food.
Minor: (Actually not so minor): As mentioned earlier, this was booked as one cruise. But, three of the shows from the first week were repeated in the second week. And, even the jokes from our cruise director at the beginning or end of the shows were the same!!! That was disappointing.
In summary, we were somewhat concerned after reading some of the reviews about the Caribbean Princess on this website. However, the negatives, in my opinion, were rather minor when you consider the bigger picture. We appreciate how hard people work to make our holiday a pleasant experience, and we did have a great cruise. When disembarking, would have loved to be staying another week ... or two. Read Less

We left from Vancouver Canada on Air Canada Flight Dream liner Mar 29/2019. We travel by air getting to different destinations at least 3-4 weeks per year and have travelled world wide for over 20 years. Love A.C. D. L. but definitely not Rouge A.L. starting this holiday. This trip we are Seniors. We have been on over 6 cruises and different companies. We took Caribbean Princes Cruise lines Frt. Lauderdale, this time as wished to go to the Western Caribbean Islands, especially Grand Cayman Is. (Sting Ray Alley). I had researched Trip Advisor, Cruise Critic, and my travel agent and only this ship went this route. Embarking was efficient, with time given to us prior and help full assistant's beside line's. When we were asked to stand for the usual cruise picture I saw a blank wall, a tunnel of lights to the side but no usual ship picture that we were looking to board for our trip. This picture was doctored up to include a parrot and a star fish on the bottom and could have been to any world location. So I made sure we took pictures of the Caribbean Princess while tendering, anchored, and I have framed this ship. I thought this unusual not to have a ships picture as a back ground with us as usual. Could of been a sunset, tropical, trip scene, ship at night as we have got while traveling(Tahiti, Polynesia, Hawaii) other countries.
We have friends, travel agents, neighbors who recommended Princess Lines to us and so booked this ship do to route port stops. First port Grand Cayman we had booked tour Stingray Encounter, Reef, Snorkel & Scenic Cruise. Worth the money/time, experience (read T.A. review) and book through Caribbean Princess ship. Next port Roatan Is. Hondurous Country. Tour Jolly Roger Catamaran Coastal Sail, Snorkel & lunch. Was one hour late as other tour ship was tied up but they did compensate but long pm in high humidity. Should be more crew on this ship, as no one helping us take off flippers or hand them up or assist us up ladder, no one at bar at times and could be more choice of salads and lunch. Saying that we helped our selves and enjoyed the rum punch. They have two ski doo's for any persons emergency back to the ship. Crew members in the water in kayaks watching and snorkel leader in water on reef. Reef is getting broken, tired, broken fan coral but saw a small amount of tropical fish, eel but not much color. Next port Belize Country previously done tours, ships good. Magill Is. Cozumel there were 7 boats either anchored, docked which made it crazy busy on the dock and in town. Been there three times before but tourist are not told you are approx. 6 miles from the town so need transportation by taxi, horse carriage, bike or scooters. They want your cruise room and ship, credit card, enough cash ect for security, damages or loss. Check your scooter ect out before using them as they will charge you for anything they think was not on the vehicle. It takes 1hr 30 min if not stopping much around the island and a nice interesting paved road trip. We are Seniors and did it with stops and safe road but be aware who sells you things and where you stop. Be very care full of your speed as it will cost you lots if over! Fast debarking and embarking with Princess key fob, great!
Service on board- Above average in all area's, but onboard could have more crew attendants at elevators as a few very lost elderly people. Customer service attendants counter quite busy at times but they were excellent. We were on deck 11, stateroom B709 deck, a very excellent location for views, sunsets/rises, restaurants and adult pools and much more convinces. Deck 11 is under the life boats but private, quiet, best area and near elevators which we appreciated.
Restaurants- Above average and most excellent. Sea Food Restaurant (Islander?) evening manager dedicated, waiters excellent, service great and the nicest sunset view in the back of the ship!
Bars/Lounges- Explore was our favorite because of Franci manager, thankyou! also Micheal (f) who should be a manager on this ship we feel. Lex(M) head manager of the ships bars a great communicator, problem solver (Peter deck pool bar) and a man of his word knows the quality and experience his staff should have at all times. Thank You!
Entertainment/main stage- Excellent dancers, orchestra, singers, musicians and humorous ships director who we will never forget the tourist questions onboard his list!
Stateroom- We have been on larger ships but good seize and deck. Would suggest to have someone check all areas before we arrive in room, ie sinks, Kleenex, door handle and locks. We had one minor complaint which was fix within 2 hrs, and got two calls and survey right away. A couple of times certain elevators would not open, work, and some not to the floor you wished. But repaired soon. Crew painting on decks should have signs by deck doors. No paint chipping noise when relaxing on decks by pools. I would say that Princess looks after details, complaints, very efficiently, quickly and even verbally from a Supervisor in very excellent time. Thank you. Please reposition the larger t.v. so not in walking distance of deck door. Yes as I have been on other large ships, cruises it is time for a refit and will be going on this ship when completed the next refit in 3-4 months. Excellent communication with Supervisor's and staff and we had a very great time on this cruise! Mostly this trip we feel were people over 45 yrs of age and no problems with crowding or line ups.

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary (stops in Grand Cayman, Roatan, Belize, and Cozumel) and the fact that it was recently refurbished. It was also a great price since we booked six months prior. This cruise was during our daughter's Spring Break as well as her 16th birthday. She was very excited to travel to so many Caribbean countries in one week. As for the ship itself, we took a Princess cruise to Alaska in 2013 and were very surprised to find the Caribbean Princess had the exact same layout as the one we sailed on then (don't recall the name). It made things easier to find as it was familiar to us, but it was slightly disappointing to feel like we'd been here before after so many years. We wanted an aft facing mini-suite but they were sold out even six months in advance, so we ended up midship. This was absolutely fine, but I think the aft facing provides the best views since you can see both side of the ship while in port. As for the food, the Coral and Islands dining rooms had good decor, great service, and a nice menu. We ate in the Crown dining room for our daughter's birthday and had excellent service and food (the filet Mignon was the best). Well worth the extra $29 per person. We also ate in Steamers, but weren't impressed. The menu is intentionally extremely limited (only clams or fried seafood, nothing broiled) and the placement of the restaurant is where the ship rumbles and shakes during the whole meal. Not worth the extra $12 per person, for us. The International Marketplace buffet was fresh and tasty and we didn't grow bored as the selection kept changing (veggie lasagna was the best!) Entertainment was the best by far of my five previous cruises. The dancing and singing were top notch and the Voice of the Ocean competition was well done (congrats to Hannah on her win for Abba's Dancing Queen!) Most activities were targeted for the very old (e.g. arts and crafts). Average age was 65, I’d guess. Also, each time there was something we were interested in seeing it was at 9:00 a.m. after a late night, so we didn't attend anything other than Bingo and that was as expected. Finally, I was pleasantly surprised at the Casino's selection of slots and variety of table games. I enjoyed myself at the Casino three of the nights (even though I didn't end up winning - big surprise). One downside of this itinerary on Princess is you change clocks four times. Twice one hour behind, then twice one hour ahead. Made for a wonky jet lag experience every morning. On Carnival, we stayed on ship’s time no matter the port time. All in all, it was a wonderful vacation. Read Less

We are seniors who love cruising, often staying on board while in port. We rarely avail ourselves to bingo, art auctions, or trivia, preferring the relaxing experience of cruising and the excellent service & food.
Our loyalty to Princess gives us elite status, so we enjoy the free laundry and internet, not to mention(But I am about to) the mini bar set ups & shop discounts.
We truly come back new & packing for our next trip.
Our only regret is that we have to travel to FT, Lauderdale to embark, so we often choose another cruise line for the convenience of a home port.
While we enjoy the other lines they do not have the music we enjoy, nor do we receive the perks.
The new Medallion class is great!!! The door opens as you approach the stateroom. We are not up on all the advantages of the medallion, but will eventually catch on. Read Less
