Caribbean Princess seemed like a well-run and well-kept ship. Even with our itinerary change due to Hurricane Dorian, things went smoothly and efficiently. The lackluster food was my only real issue, but even then, there were plenty of decent options. Embarkation in Brooklyn was smooth and quick with medallions. My only pet peeve was that the staff wouldn't accept my passport card for check-in ...

As this was a 10 day repositioning review, there were special activities on board and lots of opportunities for relaxation and fun. We flew into NEWARK and then went via Princess Transfer from the airport. It took a little over an hour in traffic, but overall went pretty smoothly, as we were the last people on that bus going to the port. The bus was very nice and worth it for us as we did not ...

Still a great ship, but not the best overall experience

Repositioning cruise from NYC to Port Everglades. We're from the Tampa area. We bought our TPA-LGA flight from Princess EZ Air. Excellent price, and excellent flight, transfer and embarkation experiences. The Brooklyn port was one of the most efficient that we've ever experienced. The ship was great as always....our third time on Regal. The first three days were at sea. First day was ...

We have been doing this cruise for many years, its so convenient out of NYC. To bad Princess doesn't use this port more often. We cruised the Caribbean Princess the first week it went partially "live", so we were looking forward to getting the full use of the new technology. We love the sea days, and this time particularly went to de-stress and not do a lot of things, so we didn't do the ...

We chose this cruise because it was a new location to cruise to for us. We never like to cruise for just 7 days so we actually booked this as a B2B2B cruise and were on the Regal from Oct 12 to Oct 31. It was our first time cruising out of New York. This was also our first time on the Regal and the first time on a medallion class ship. We arrived in NY the night before we cruised and stayed in ...

We chose a fall cruise to celebrate my landmark birthday and to see the fall colors. We spent two nights in NYC (Columbus Day weekend) before getting on the ship. We were fine our first two ports, but then a Nor'Easter storm landed us in Boston and lost us two ports by the time the weather cleared. You really did not want to leave the ship and explore as they kept changing the time we would ...

We have been to many of the stops on this cruise, but the price was right and we have wanted to see the fall colors. Plus it gave us a chance to see the Atlantic Provinces of PEI and Nova Scotia. The colors did not disappoint although we missed Bar Harbor and St. John due to a storm that blew in while we were in port in Boston. We did none of the Princess offered tours (I'm just not into ...

I took this cruise with my husband because I had never been on a cruise before and we wanted to see some fall foliage. The ports were incredible and so different each day. We were sad to miss Halifax, but the experience of being in a tropical storm was something we'll always laugh at and look back on fondly. My husband and I are early 30s, and we had a hard time finding activities that we ...

This was our first cruise with the Princess line, but we have cruised with Carnival and Holland America previously. We chose this New England/Canada cruise for two reasons: we wanted to visit New York City, and we had never been to New England. We arrived in NYC two days before the cruise and visited as many historic sites that we could: Times Square, Liberty and Ellis Islands, Castle Clinton, ...

We had been planning with some friends of doing a New England Fall colors tour for more than a year and selected this cruise due to (1) reasonable cost and (2) itinerary and (3) prior experience with Princess. We have always enjoyed Princess for it's service, dependable food, and moderate pricing. Some highlights of our cruise: A. We were a bit startled when we received an email about a day ...
