Went with a group. Time with group was great. The new medallion tool and app caused me way to much stress. Only worked to open door and charge purchases on ship. Absolutely no internet, email or phone use. Missed a prepaid land trip as I didn’t get notice. My email and credit were hacked upon boarding. Couldn’t address while onboard, even on their computers. Cruises are to be stress free! We were ...

What happened to Princess?!?

We always sailed Princess. I was excited for this sunny adventure. Princess truly let us down in their overbooking, understaffing and purchasing the lowest quality food. I don’t know what to say as I am normally raving about this line! We even hold stock in their owning company, Carnival and have done so for nearly a decade. No more. Time to sell as this line has dropped service standards as ...

Besides being only the 4th cruise back for this ship, it went very well. The dining room was obviously understaffed however the previous two cruises only had about 1400 passengers and the next cruise was only going to have about 1200. Our cruise had 2400. Embarkation was a bit of a pain because we had numerous problems with the app during the pre-cruise experience and had to do some things at the ...

Our Caribbean cruise was really a test cruise to see how safe, easy and fun cruising still can be. As far as safety, the Caribbean Princess had health protocols in place. Masks were worn in indoor venues but not in the outdoor parts of the ship. We wore our masks to the table for dining and then could remove them. The ship was 40% capacity which was quite lovely and made it much easier for ...

We did the Eastern and Western back to backs from 11-28-21 to 12-12-21. Embarkation was efficient and fast. The Covid protocols were excellent. Most passengers wore their masks when they should. The casino was a no mask zone for the most part due to smoking and drinking. The food was good, not great. Two of the specialty restaurants, Planks and Steamers, were not operating for either ...

First Passengers After a 608 Day Pause

I had no idea when I booked that we'd be the first passengers/cruise after 608 days (due to pandemic). Passengers and crew were so excited to be back. I felt like it was a very safe environment, given the pre-boarding testing, vax requirements, masks etc. I was worried the trip wouldn't be as enjoyable due to these pandemic changes, but the friendly staff made it worthwhile. It was our first time ...

This was a great cruise in so many ways. We traveled with good friends and all of us had a wonderful time. Service was excellent, staff was friendly, food was good, ship was well maintained, beds were greatly improved since our last sailing on the Caribbean Princess, and itinerary was perfect. Club Class dining was well worth the extra expense - we had the best service and every meal was ...

We live in Florida and Port Lauderdale in convenient for a quick getaway. We chose Princess because we have always had overall positive experiences on Princess Ships and this cruise was no exception. Because we have cruised the Caribbean on numerous previous occassions we booked this crusie primarily for the on board experience so shore excursions and ports of call did not have much enfluence on ...

It was a last minute vacation for my husband and I and our 5 kids (13,14,17,19 &20 yrs) The staff was great, friendly, helpful and fun! Loved the medallion and it’s apps! Very innovative and helpful if you aren’t regular cruisers. The only thing I wished is that I’d be able to track the kids under 18 in the other 2 state rooms since we had 3 rooms. But because of their age the app wouldn’t allow ...
