February 2016 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Houston Roundtrip) Cruise on Caribbean Princess
I was really looking forward to the cruise on the Caribbean Princess. It started out fantastic. Every crew member I met was fantastic. Very nice and answered any questions I had. The check-in was a breeze. The stateroom was nice. The stateroom attendant, Camillo was the best. The first day, I went to the buffet for lunch and it was not very good. They put seasoning in things that should never have seasonings. I thought, okay, maybe it will be better. The dining room was not much better. The shrimp was not cooked enough. One night I ordered the Filet Mignon, medium well. When I order that, it usually has a little pink and it's juicy. The one I got, looked like an overdone, thin hamburger. It tasted horrible. My sister's was the same. She sent hers back and they said they cooked another one "medium". It was rare. I did not go back to the dining room. I tried the pizza, it was okay, not the best. I tried the hamburger, too many spices on it. Never ate at either place again. I ordered a couple of little boxes of cereal every morning from room service and I usually ended up eating that for lunch and supper. I would go to the buffet for breakfast and have a fried egg with a cold biscuit or just fruit. If you want to lose weight, this is the cruise to go on. Also, I have never been on a cruise that felt like a car constantly hitting bumps in the road and then start shaking. It would wake you in the middle of the night. There were no big waves or anything. We lost a generator after our second port too.
