Caribbean Princess

January 2016 - Caribbean Princess to Caribbean - Western

Too many small aggravations

We were overall surprising disappointed with Princess because we had heard it was one of the better cruise lines. We could not get fixed dining and the fine dining was limited to only one of three dining rooms where there was always a wait. Room service many times would not answer the phone, and calling customer services was no help. Customer Services and the Excursion desk always had a line with not enough staff. The shows in the theater had not enough seating even when we would show up 45 minutes early. The ship was just too crowded and understaffed. We have cruised with Holland America (the very best), Carnival, and Norwegian before and Princess doesn't measure up. We have three more cruises booked for this year. Two are with Holland America to Alaska and the Panama Canal, and one Caribbean with Carnival. We will not cruise with Princess again.

Oosterdam

November 2015 - Oosterdam to Caribbean - Southern

Best cruise yet!

My wife and I have been on 4 cruises, 2 Carnival to the Caribbean, 1 Norwegian to the Mediterranean, and this Holland America to the southern Caribbean. Far and away this was our best cruise yet. The gourmet food was scrumptious, the service excellent, but the thing we liked most was it wasn't crowded like the other cruise lines. Although fully booked the ship only held 1,900 passengers compared to the 5-6,000 on Carnival and Norwegian. Never had a problem finding a table or lounge chair. Never a wait for dinner. The excursions were great and cheaper too. Loved everything about it except the part about me breaking my arm. I was standing in our stateroom with my back to the door to the veranda. The ship rolled and I leaned back against the door which had a faulty latch. The door swung open and I fell backwards onto the veranda breaking and dislocating my elbow. So, I'll have a cast on until Christmas! Lessons learned! Don't trust doors to latch. Anyway, while onboard we did book a June 14 day Alaskan cruise and a 15 day Panama Canal cruise for November next year on Holland America which we're looking forward to.
