We chose it because the price was reasonable and wanted to see the rest of the So Caribbean. We loved the excursions be the ship left a lot to be desired. They had v ery little entertainment during the day and what they had at night was no very good. We loved the Royal and Regal but this ship is one we will not sail on again. We were bored and that does not usually happen on a cruise. The ...

It was our anniversary and we are trying cruise lines other than Carnival. We were fortunate to get upgraded to a Club Class mini-suite. We had booked an accessible balcony but when we were offered an upgrade we jumped on it since I could fold my wifes wheelchair and carry it in the room. Darn we got spoiled in the Club Class dining room. Our servers were first rate especially Marvin, Greys ...

7 day Southern Caribbean. Ship feels old and outdated. Elevators are very slow and cannot accommodate the many summer passengers. Casino is too small and cannot accommodate all gamblers. Although, they had a craps table. They get a star for that one. It is a reoccurring theme with this ship. Food was standard for a average cruise ship. No wonderful meals like I had on Holland. The ports ...

Caribbean Princess Disappointment

This was an 8-night cruise to the Dutch islands of Curacao, Bonaire, and Aruba, and the dates worked well for us. As a second cruise on Princess within a year (first one was in Alaska), the Caribbean Princess was very disappointing. On the positive side: Our cabin was nice -- a mini-suite with a balcony and real bathroom with a tub. Very comfortable bedding and air conditioning worked well. ...

This was my first cruise with Princess and as a result of my experience, it will definitely be my last. Prior to booking, I had this impression that Princess was an elite cruising brand. I expected more of them than I would a Carnival, Norwegian or Royal Caribbean cruise line. I could not have been more wrong. Let's start with the PROS since its a short list. PROS: Embarkation - ...

Overview: We have sailed several different cruise lines in the past, and when our friends whom are loyal Princess cruisers invited us along, we agreed it would be fun to try a new line. I'm personally surprised by the negative reviews because we had such a fantastic experience! yes, the ship is older, but I found it to be well maintained. The only thing that I truly did not like was the size ...

BACKGROUND: 51 cruises, 36 of which were on Princess. Solo world traveler who enjoys adventure, sea days, lots of ports for the money. TRAVEL TO PORT: For convenience, I flew nonstop from Boston to Miami. However, getting back to Ft. Lauderdale took some time and extra money. Next time, will fly one stop to Ft. Lauderdale. Used an outstanding private limo company for all my FL travels – ...

On both Disney and Royal Caribbean, passenger cards and ID photos are handled at the same check-in location inside ...

I sailed on the Caribbean Princess from January 28 through February 5, 2017. I have sailed most of the major cruise lines, taking approximately 25 cruises. Grand Princess has been my favorite ship for years but Caribbean Princess has just pushed her to the side and won my heart. She is a beautiful ship. Every piece of wood is shined to a high sheen. No fraying carpet, peeling paint or spotted ...

I know the ship is going into dry dock, so I expected the worse. Boy was I wrong. It was a great cruise. The ship looks amazing. The carpets throughout the ship look new, the greens where you play golf looked like we were the first to step on it. This is our 16th cruise so we know what to look for. The food was always hot and was very good. The dining staff all over the ship was fantastic. ...
