Caribbean Princess

February 2016 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Houston Roundtrip) Cruise on Caribbean Princess

Not impressed ....

Our 6th cruise, first time on Princess ... not our favorite. to be honest.

Ship is tired (public areas are nice and clean)

Staterooms ( balcony stateroom) Not impressed , as stains everywhere, balcony deckchairs dirty not clean . Problems with toilet, called maintenance 5times. Strange smell , shower smallest ever seen, Friendly steward.

Ship, not the youngest , bit tired  Due to diesel engine problems ( more than 3 weeks , never fixed ) voyage changed , did not visit ports as promised ( cruise 21feb engine problems, cruise 28feb same engine problems, cruise 06mar , still engine failure , could not sail at full speed)

Cabin , stains, holes in sheets-cover 4times !!.really need upgrade the rooms. In last week bed linnen never changed.

Staff, some great , most average and even some very rudeSad.

Food, staff in dining room very friendly, food oke, not wow factor. Great sandwiches in Piazza , and coffee ( $$ )  better than the colored hot water in the buffet.

Entertainment, great shows, lots to do.

The shopping host  lady is far over the top, al about $$$$$$$  and selling, even the "wake show"on television is one big commercial drama .... would be better to provide guests with usefull information and not only commercial info.


Excursions, Belize ... dont go off the ship , Belize city , no go area , didnt feel safe, locals trying to sell drugs, begging for money, in town nothing to see.


So , please dont think this cruise was one big drama Happy, but must say there are too many issues why we in the near future would choose another company, who in our opinion provide better service/food/maintanance. ( and staff training)

Once more, some staff members are exeptional HappyBig Smile, many others okay , but also many who dont have the xfactor, no eye for detail, and thats a pitty,

Expected more from Princess, would not give more than 4stars, and maybe our expectations were too highWink
