October 2016 - Caribbean Princess to Canada, New England, New York
Gorgeous weather in Canada and New England helped make this a spectacular cruise. The Caribbean Princess is an older ship, but still in good shape and maintained well. The food is overall just average (both sit down dining and buffet)-with the specialty restaurants offering the only really good meals. With 3000+ passengers, waiting in long lines becomes the norm, so patience is necessary. The staff is well informed and helpful and our cabin steward particularly attentive.
Be prepared that other cruise ships have similar itineraries during the short fall season, so each port is crowded with tourists all vying to visit the same major sites.
